Self Storage ideal during renovations
August 27, 2013

Planning a renovation or extension? There are probably a million different things you need to organise with contractors, planning permission and the finished design itself but there’s something else that you may not have considered. While the build is taking place its worth sparing yourself the stress and of all your items being damaged or covered in dust and think about putting them into short term self storage.

Your belongings, and the your tradespeople working on the project will definitely thank you for it, and better yet it will make the work easier and quicker to complete and protect your valuables all at the same time

Self-storage for smoother, less stressful renovations

Renovations can be stressful enough without the disorder of extra clutter in the space that’s being renovated. If you’re still going to be living in your house during the renovation, your living space is going to be affected and reduced. This means all the belongings that you normally would keep in this area will need to be relocated. Renovation projects also have a tendency to exceed original timeframes so even if you think the length of the project is not enough to justify paying for storage, be aware that hold ups are common, and that there are many short term storage options available.

On-site shipping containers

Here at All Size Sheds, we can arrange the delivery of a transportable offsite shipping container to your property as the perfect storage solution for all your items, furniture and décor that will need to be removed from the area during the renovation process. The benefit of this storage option is that you have ultimate flexibility to access your belongings as you need them and on your terms. During a renovation it’s quite likely that some of the stuff that you store, you’ll need to access at some stage.

Tips for storing smartly

•    Pack items in boxes. This not only helps to find what you need, but fits more in the space and protects your items from damage.

•    Place the items you are likely to need to access closer to the front of the container/unit.

•    Don’t store anything above shoulder height unless you want to risk straining or injury to your back.

If you’re planning a renovation, you should also be planning what to do with all your things during the process so the project goes as smoothly as possible. On the Gold Coast, when you need storage the only name to remember is ALL SIZE SHEDS. Contact our friendly team today for more information on our rates for self storage. Ph. (07) 5534 7181
