Downsizing to get on the property ladder? Our storage unit Huntingdon is here to help

Deciding to downsize your rental so you can begin saving money to get on the property ladder is a big decision. And it will create a need for storage. Our storage unit Huntingdon is here to help.

Many people are downsizing in order to combat rising rents and inflation. Downsizing to a smaller rental property will allow you to spend less money each month and this saved money could quickly become a deposit on your own home. 

Renting a property can feel counterintuitive when you are trying to buy and many people decide to move in with their parents or other family members. Renting a smaller property will allow you to keep your independence and it can also help you with buying a home as renting can boost your credit score

If you are considering downsizing to save money and get on the property ladder, here are some things you need to consider and how our storage unit Huntingdon will help. 

How small can you actually go?

Before you even begin looking at smaller rental properties you need to honestly consider how small you can actually go. 

How many people are living with you? If you are planning to downsize with your partner and children, you will need to really consider how this is going to work for everyone. 

Are you happy to be close to neighbours?

Downsizing can often mean moving into a flat and, if you have been living in a house, this will mean that you have a lot more neighbours in close proximity. A flat building can have 100+ flats within it which makes for a lot of people. 

You will really need to consider if this is something that you work for and/or your family. If not, you will have to limit yourself to looking at smaller houses. 

Do you need a lot of personal space?

Before downsizing, you need to think about your personal space needs and those of the people you will be living with.

Some people are happy with very little personal space, whereas it feels as vital as oxygen for others to have personal space and alone time. Think about what you personally need and then have a chat with them about what will make them feel happy and comfortable. 

Your storage needs are covered with our storage unit Huntingdon 

The other issue that will occur with downsizing is that you will no longer have room for all your belongings. 

Our storage unit Huntingdon will offer you an affordable, flexible space in which you can safely store all of your belongings that do not fit within your downsized home. 

Flexible rental contract with our storage unit Huntingdon

With our storage unit Huntingdon you will only ever be offered a flexible rental contract. This means that if you find that you need to downsize your unit at any point, our Huntingdon team will help make that happen for you. If you find that you could actually use a slightly bigger space, they will make this happen too. 

If you come to a point where you no longer need your storage unit Huntingdon, you are free to leave as soon as you want to, even if your rental period has not ended. We just need 14 days notice. 

Safe and secure storage unit Huntingdon 

You can have complete peace of mind that all your belongings will be fully protected within our storage unit Huntingdon.

With our state-of-the-art security systems which include intruder alarms, smoke detectors and fire detectors. There is also 27/7 CCTV around the entire facility. 

Convenient access with our storage unit Huntingdon

Our high levels of security will not hinder your ability to enter your unit when you need to. We have a pin-code system in place to allow you to enter your unit out of office hours whilst keeping everyone else’s units safe and secure.
