Creating space to deal with family changes

Free up some space and time to focus your mind on what matters – the future.

Creating space to deal with family changes

The need to make extra space or find room for belongings tends to be triggered by the bigger events in our lives. Unfortunately, one such occurrence is when there is a split in the family or a breakdown of a relationship. At times such as these, there can be so many things to consider and arrange, especially if you have been together for a long period of time or if there are children or animals involved.

Alternative Accommodation

You may find yourself in a situation where you have to find alternative accommodation quickly which can sometimes mean moving in with friends in the short term. Generally, though, you can’t take all of your belongings with you. Surprisingly, renting a personal self-storage unit can be a great solution. It can give you the space you need both physically and mentally to focus on the way forward.

Flexible storage

Whether it’s bulky items such as furniture, or smaller things such as clothes or books, simply moving them all into a storage unit, where you can access them whenever you need them means there’s one less thing to think about. You can leave your things there as long as you need to. Once you are in a place where you can move forward with your life, then you can simply unpack the unit or dispose of the items. Either way this is something that you can postpone until you have the mental energy to deal with it.
