In The Process Of Moving House? Our Storage Newbury Will Help

Moving to a new house comes with many decisions, the biggest being choosing your new home. If you need more time to do that, our storage Newbury will help.

If you find moving house stressful, you are not alone. In a survey conducted by Legal & General, they found that moving house topped their poll as the most stressful thing you can do. 57% of the people who took the survey chose moving house over having a child and getting a divorce. 

See, we told you you weren’t alone. 

Why Is It So Stressful? 

There are a multitude of factors that combine together to make moving house super stressful. 

To Begin, You Aren’t In Control

Many of us have a deep need for control. From an evolutionary perspective, having control of a situation increases our chances of survival so it is a need that is deeply embedded within our subconscious. Losing or not having control creates a strong chemical reaction which is the same as when we are in danger.. Control also brings a level of certainty and consistency that we all like to have in our lives. 

When it comes to moving house, there are so many moving parts that it is hard to find any control. All the paperwork and all the people involved – the estate agents, the mortgage lenders, buyers, sellers, surveyors –  mean that there is too much going on for you to be in control and thus why so many of us find moving home stressful. 

Then, There’s All The Money…

The financial aspect of your house move is going to play a part in causing your stress levels to rise. Money is a completely man-made entity and yet it makes the world go around and so it, of course, is going to play a big part in your house move.

From the valuation fee to the legal fees to the estate agent fees, the amount of money you need to buy a new home can rack up to be tens of thousands. And this on top of the actual deposit for the house. 

…And The Waiting 

Even if you have all the money in place, you will still have to wait. And wait. And then wait some more. 

The process securing your mortgage to actual completion can be six months. And, unfortunately, the longer the process, the more chance there is that things can go wrong. This is a long time in which to have to wait and it is not surprising that worries and stress build up. 

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions 

You have to make decisions about the sale of your own home:

Which estate agent? What price to sell it for? 

Then there’s all the packing and moving decisions:

Are you going to pack and move everything or are you going to hire professionals? Where can you get good quality boxes? Do you need to declutter before you move? 

And this is all before you even consider looking for your new home. 

If you find that your home sells quickly and you aren’t quite ready to sign on the dotted line for your next home, rented accommodation will be a good solution. It will allow you to take your time looking for your next home. This is not a decision you want to rush. 

If you decide to rent and need a place to store any extra belongings, our storage Newbury will be a great solution for you. 

How Our Storage Newbury Will Help 

Our storage Newbury will help in many other ways too. In this section, we are going to go through some of the ways that our storage Newbury will be a perfect partner for your house move. 

Units To Fit Your Needs With Our Storage Newbury 

Our storage Newbury has units that cover a large range of sizes. Starting at 15 sq ft, they go all the way up to 840 sq ft. This allows us to cater to many different customer needs and we know we will have the unit that is perfect for your needs, no matter how many items or boxes you need to store with us. 

Safe And Secure With Our Storage Newbury 

We are aware that your personal belongings are very important to you and placing them into storage can bring up some trepidation. 

With our storage Newbury you can rest assured that your belongings are being taken care of. We have staff on site during office hours and outside of these hours, we have 24/7 CCTV around the entire facility. Each unit is also equipped with an intruder alarm and smoke and fire detectors. 

Your belongings will be safe with us. 

Flexible Rental Terms With Our Storage Newbury 

When it comes to looking for a new home, you can’t know how long it will take to find your ideal new home. This needn’t be a worry when it comes to using our storage Newbury as we offer flexible rental agreements with all our units. 

This means that if it takes longer than you expected to find your new home, we will be able to extend your stay within your unit. The same goes if you find your home a lot quicker than expected and need to leave early. You will just need to give the team two weeks notice and then you will be out of your contract. You will even be refunded for any days you don’t use. 

We want our storage to work with our customers and so we try to make everything as convenient as possible. 

Extended Access Hours

Speaking of convenience, at our Newbury store we also have extended opening hours. This means that you will be able to access your unit when the Newbury team isn’t in the office. 

But rest assured this will not alter how safe your or anyones belongings are within our storage Newbury. We are able to keep everything safe as you gain access to your unit and only your unit via a unique pin-code that will be given to you when you sign your rental agreement. 

The extended opening hours for our Newbury store are: Monday to Sunday, 6am to 11pm.
