The Benefits of Using Self Storage During a Home Renovation

When renovating your home, one of your key considerations is what to do with all your furniture and other household belongings while the work is taking place. In theory, you could move your possessions from room to room as the renovations progress, but that’s not always possible. Even when it is, it can be frustrating for you and anyone else in your household having to live in such cramped conditions. If you have a garage or a large shed, you could put your personal items in there for the duration, but will they be safe? After all, a garden shed is much easier to break into than your home.

Fortunately, there is a solution. As one of the leading providers of self storage in Leicester, many of our customers make use of our services during house renovations. Whether the project is large or small, we have the perfect solution for you. In this article, we will look at just some of the ways that self storage can help you with your renovations.

Protect Your Belongings From Damage

Some people try to work around their possessions during renovation work, covering up furntiure with protective sheets and moving items into the middle of the room, away from the building work. Who knows, some of them might even make it work. In our experience, however, most people end up damaging their belongings or injuring themselves in the process. By putting your items into storage, you eliminate the risk of accidental damage.

Free Up Space at Home

Home renovations aren’t easy, whether you’re tackling them yourself or have hired a contractor. The more room you have to manoeuvre, the better. Leaving your belongings in the house creates another barrier to a successful renovation as you struggle to set up ladders, operate equipment, and so on. Even moving them into another room is only a partial solution, as you are then prevented from living your day-to-day existence in other parts of the house.

Keep Your Belongings Secure

As we mentioned at the top of this article, many people choose to keep their belongings in a garage or shed while they work on their house renovations. While this might be a simple and cost-free solution, it does put your possessions at a greater risk of theft, especially if people in your neighbourhood know what you’re up to. With a self-storage unit, your items are protected by round the clock CCTV surveillance, a bespoke alarm system, and heavy duty locks, not to mentioned on-site personnel during business hours.

Give Yourself a Blank Canvas

Home renovations are all about giving your property a new lease of life. If you keep all your belongings at home while you’re renovating, you can’t help but envisage them in the finished room. While this might not seem such a bad thing, it restricts your creativity. By putting your belongings out of sight and out of mind, you let your imagination run free, delivering renovations that benefit the property as a whole, rather than the items you have in it.

Self Storage in Leicester

We offer two main types of storage solutions for customers engaged in house renovations in our home city of Leicester – self storage units and container units. This is how they can assist you:

These are ideal for smaller renovation projects and can be rented on a short or long-term basis, depending on the extent of the job. You bring your belongings to our facility and place them in the unit – it’s as simple as that. You can access your possessions any time, making it ideal if you want to rotate items as you move from room to room.

These are better for larger home renovations. We bring the container to your property and help you load your possessions into it. Once it’s full, we return it to our storage facility, where it is kept safe and secure until you need the items back. This solution differs from self-storage, as you are not able to access the container whenever you want. However, it’s a great way to ensure your items are protected throughout the renovation period. Once your project is complete, we will return your possessions to you and help you unload them.
