Self storage during life events

As time go on, things in our lives change as we hit big milestones and events such as moving house, getting married and even retiring. And even through what can be stressful times in life, self storage can help.

New baby

If you need to turn your spare room or man cave into a nursery, consider storing your things whilst you prepare the room for your new arrival. Organising your living space will really help in the first few months so if you have excess furniture that you want to keep or you need to store large toys and equipment for your baby, our self storage rooms will suit your needs.

Getting married

Planning a wedding can be really hectic especially if you’re knee deep in table decorations, guest invitations and table plans etc.  Plus if you’re going to get showered with gifts from engagement parties and from the big day itself, you’ll need somewhere to put it all! It makes sense for newlyweds to use self storage until they have time to sort through things and get everything organised.

Moving in together

As you set up home with your partner, it’s very likely you’ll have two of everything – from pots and pans, to china and sofas. If you can’t decide what to get rid of (or maybe you don’t want to), why not use self storage to keep your things safe and secure until you’re ready to deal with it. With affordable rates, and different size storage rooms, there’s bound to be one to suit your needs.

Broken relationships

Relationship breakdowns are stressful at the best of times and even more so if you have to go through the process of dividing up belongings and looking for a new place to live. Why not store your belongings in our clean, dry and secure storage rooms.  Placing items in storage can give you both the time and space to sort things out slowly especially if you have to leave a property suddenly.


Finishing off in the working world can both be a daunting and exciting time.  Whether you’re going to spend time travelling the world or you need to downsize your home, you may not wish to part with your lifelong possessions. Using self storage can be a good time to help you declutter too so you can make more space in your home for all your new hobbies.

Loss of a loved one

After a family bereavement, self storage may not be high on the list of priorities but using the space to store belongings can give you the time and space to deal with things, especially if you need to sell a property. Keep your loved one’s items safe and secure in storage until you feel ready to sort through them and determine which items you’d like to save, sell, donate or dispose of in a timescale that suits you.
