Moving home is famously stated to be one of the most stressful things you can do - perhaps that’s part of the reason why the frequency that we do it is declining. But just what is it that makes it so stressful, and what can you do to reduce that stress?

A key reason for the increasing stress levels seems to be that hardly anyone seems to understand the whole process, or what exactly needs to happen when, and consequently so much of it seems to be out of our control. There’s also the length of the chain - you’re in luck if you’re chain free, but if there’s any other party involved then there’s always the risk that plans will have to change at short notice and moving day is suddenly moved!

That’s when you find out the the removal company that you had painstakingly selected for their positive reviews are not available on your new moving day and you’ve got to start the whole process again - desperately seeking someone who can move you in just 7 days’ time.

It doesn’t have to be this way you’ll be pleased to know. By renting an Attic Self Storage unit you can regain some sense of control over moving day. Simply pack up all your belongings that you rarely use - this will probably clear 80% of your house and put them, along with the items of furniture that you can make do without (no spouses or relatives please!), into a personal storage unit. Your home will feel uncluttered and your things will be perfectly safe until you’re finally in your new place and want to move them in. This means that come moving day, you really don’t have too many things to actually move so you can spend more time exploring your new home.

And don’t worry, should you accidentally pack something you do need in a hurry, with an Attic Self Storage unit you can access your things 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can just pop over and get it. We can even help you by arranging someone to move your things into a unit for you. Find a storage unit that will suit you here (link to postcode search).

Just one thing - don’t pack your kettle - you’ll be needing that for the first celebratory cuppa, sat on a box in your new abode.
