There are times when work or family commitments require a move to a new town, or even a new country. This can be daunting, especially when there’s a risk of rushing in to a less than ideal property purchase.
Choosing a new home can take time because there are many things to consider, such as the type of neighbourhood, the local amenities and the availability of places in good local schools.
To reduce the risk of making a poor property choice, many people decide to put their furniture into storage and temporarily rent somewhere while they find a new permanent home.
This can relieve a lot of the pressure and thereby reduce the stress of relocating to an unfamiliar area.
Although there are many self-storage facilities in the UK, these are not the ideal storage providers for the above scenario. Self-storage usually requires a lot of handling and therefore increases the removals costs and risk of damage.
Central Moves provides an alternative that halves the amount of physical handling, so halves the risk of damage to furniture and other belongings.
If a customer is using our storage service, we can load their goods directly into storage containers when we collect from their original address. These storage units (each with its own inventory and unique ID number) are then taken off the vehicle and stored in a secure warehouse for as long as the customer requires.
Once the customer has chosen their new home, we put the storage units onto the vehicle and deliver as arranged. The customer can then tick off each item on the inventory as it is unloaded from the unit, if they choose to do so.
This process means we only need to physically handle to goods twice – once to load into the units and once to unload. Together with our low weekly storage fees, this can lead to huge savings for our customers.
Our storage facility is highly secure, with an efficient alarm system, 24 hr CCTV monitoring and no public access without an appointment.
