After weeks of lockdown, the London property market is starting to reopen. Although things are not back to normal yet, this is definitely good news for everyone who was planning to sell or buy property, or to move homes before the pandemic hit.
Store now, move later
Due to stay-at-home measures, many Londoners saw their plans to move disrupted. Now that non-essential home moves are allowed again, there is a surge in demand for removals services across London. This means that you may not be able to move on your chosen date, as movers may already be booked.
If you find yourself having to wait or delay your moving date, you may be wondering what to do with your belongings.
In fact, official government guidelines suggest that you pack your belongings yourself to minimise the risk of contagion. Of course, having moving boxes stacked at home while you wait for moving day is not convenient, especially in cities like London where living space is tight. This is why you may want to think about putting your packed belongings into storage.
Storage in London vs self-storage
Storage is a practical short-term solution that comes in handy during this post-lockdown stage. When thinking about storage, some people automatically think of self-storage. But if you are after hassle-free storage space, there is another option that will suit you best.
Our storage service offers many advantages over self-storage. One of them is that it is virtually a contactless procedure, which is important during post-lockdown.
With our storage in London service, your packed goods are placed in a container, sealed, and then loaded into a removals vehicle using a forklift. The unloading procedure is also done via forklift. This way, manual handling is kept to a minimum – and so is the risk of contagion.
