Moving home can be an exciting time.
In many cases it signifies the start of a new career, new social opportunities and a new environment. It is also something that isn’t usually done on a whim, so is a result of careful planning.
The physical process of moving all the furniture and belongings is quite easy to plan in advance. The first step is to contact a removals company and get a quote as early as possible. Once a quote is accepted, it’s simply a matter of booking the move for the required day.
The normal process is to move the entire contents of your current home into the appropriate rooms of your new home, but this isn’t ideal for everyone. There are occasions when moving everything to the new premises can cause unnecessary problems.
A new home often means rethinking furniture layout, changes in furniture requirements and of course, some redecorating and renovation. In these cases, having all your furniture delivered on the day of the move can be a hindrance.
At F Smith & Son, we have a storage solution.
We can store individual items of furniture or even the contents of a whole room, until you are ready for delivery. If arranged prior to booking, this plan is easily implemented and is far cheaper than moving items into storage at a later date.
Our storage system even allows us to store items in different units according to the appropriate room, so it’s possible to have, for example, the contents of the dining room delivered separately from the contents of the spare bedroom.
This is particularly useful if you intend to redecorate or renovate parts of your new home, or even keep a room clear while you have new flooring fitted.
Our storage facility is also utilized by customers that are down-sizing, but need to retain certain items of furniture that don’t fit into their new home. This is often because the furniture is destined for a family member or friend that isn’t quite ready to receive the item(s).
