Going overseas, immigrating, international secondment? Self-storage can take some of the stress out of your big move

Going overseas can be an extremely stressful and tiring process what with all the planning, preparation, selling, buying, moving, changing, and adjusting that need to take place but StorTown can help to make this process much easier for you. How?


When your family goes overseas, you might find yourself left behind while your spouse goes on ahead. Whether you are staying in your own house or temporarily moving in with friends or family, you might need to store some belongings to avoid living in chaos. Consider moving the items you don’t need on a daily basis out of your living space, especially if a family member or friend has been kind enough to offer you a short-term living arrangement.

A good option is self-storage. With self-storage, you can safely store your household belongings until you are ready to move overseas, return home. Even if you do not intend to take these items with you to your new home, self-storage can be a better option than selling all your belongings straight away – if anything goes wrong with your move, you will at least be able to relocate to SA with household goods ready and waiting to be used.

Working away from home on a contractual basis? Self-storage is a cost-effective way to store belongings for a short time frame. Whether you’re off on a project in Africa or taking up contract work overseas or that big secondment, the exchange rate makes self-storage an attractive option.
