Throughout our lives, most of us will live in a variety of houses and apartments. This might start off with simple student accommodation or starter flat, both on the basis of what you could afford at that time.Every home we occupy centres around our life at the time, be it studying, work or starting a family. The one thing that we may not always anticipate is having to downsize to a small property later in life.
No matter what your reasons are for downsizing, Fort Box has the right storage package to suit your needs. You don’t need to sell or get rid of your belongings when moving into a smaller property. By using storage, you have all the storage space you need without having to part with any possessions, unless you want to reduce things you no longer use.
Downsizing Without Having to Have Fewer Possessions –
People choose to downsize their apartment or house for several reasons. For some people, relocating to a new area for work might mean renting a temporary flat or small house. It might not be a permanent move or job placement. Or in some cases, it’s about getting to know the area before committing to buying a house. Then there are people in the process of waiting for the moving in date for their new home. If this does occur, please remember to contact Fort Box, and we’ll arrange a storage unit for the interim period between moving dates.
Life circumstances also play a pivotal role in adjusting the size of your home. If you decide to change jobs to enter the freelance market or to start your own business, you might downsize to accommodate a reduction in earnings. And retirees might not need a house with four bedrooms anymore and would prefer to trade in their home for a luxury apartment to enjoy their retirement.
As we move from one house to another, we all accumulate various pieces of furniture, appliances and personal items. If you have been living in a three of a four-bed house, it might be tricky to downsize to a flat or two-bed property with the same amount of possessions. While it’s always a good suggestion to reduce the number of things you move with, it’s not a necessity to get rid of stuff you use.
Our advice is to do a thorough clean of your current home and undertake some decluttering. You’ll be able to remove any items you rarely or never use by selling them or donating them to a local charity. Then, you’re left with the things you want to keep – and you can by renting a storage unit from Fort Box. Residential space in the capital comes at a premium cost, which includes cupboards and loft spaces. However, storage is a far cheaper option in comparison. A 50-sq-ft storage unit can hold the equivalent of a small apartment’s worth of items. That gives you a lot of living space without you having to part with your belongings.
