When we chat to our StorTown customers we are interested to hear how they found us and why they needed storage. Some of the answers we hear are: immigrating, relocating, moving house, travelling, sabbatical, divorce, renovating, excess stock storage, spring cleaning and “I just need more space!”
Immigrating, moving, relocating
Timings with transfers and moving can be tricky. You are ready to move out but your house is still occupied. Storage is definitely a way out in these tight spots. The stress attached to immigrating or moving can be minimized if you start clearing and packing well in advance. Pack it and store it. Estate agents agree that a spacious house free from unnecessary clutter could make the sale easier. If you are renovating, temporary storage thanks to the flexibility you get at StorTown, is good solution to ensure your possessions are dust-free and safe.
 
Travelling
Travelling is probably one of the most glamorous reasons to store! Some of our customers choose to rent out their homes or flats and hire one of our self-storage units. This way they know their prize furniture and goods are safely stored in case of damage by tenants or burglaries at their properties in their absence.
