Self Storage

Getting away from it all

It’s so great to head off traveling – but what about when you’re going for more than a few months? That’s just what more and more people are now doing; jetting off and really seeing the world. To make sure everything is safe and secure while they’re away, putting the household items into storage is the only sensible solution.

Clearly this is going to be no ordinary trip: it’s not a two-week holiday in the sun where people can be fairly sure everything will be in its place and alright when they get home – perhaps a friend, neighbour or family member house sat or occasionally kept an eye on things while they were away. Long-term travel calls for an entirely different approach, however, and there might be many other considerations too.

Cutting costs

It may be, for instance, that someone planning to travel the world for a year is renting a house or apartment and doesn’t want to keep up the payments for the many months that they’re away – definitely amounting to a big waste of money, at an already expensive time in the traveller’s life. So it’s often best to end the lease and find a good household self storage firm that will really look after people’s things.

Morespace self storage in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, has just the kind of secure facility that provides robust protection for valuables and treasured items, and their box shop has everything from padlocks to cardboard boxes for removals and documents. Wondering how much it’s all going to add up to, keeping everything in storage for a year, as well as how much storage space is required? This handy calculator has the answer.

Less is more

Many people think they have to have big bucks to travel the world – but these days it’s easier than ever to get around for relatively little. The key lies in doing solid research (Google) well in advance and working out a strategy to travel on the cheap – even if it’s a young person who’s practically broke.

That’s not saying it can’t be done in style. So for those who have the cash – why not splash it? Some of the world’s best places, most luxurious accommodation, the finest of food and wine; travel like a pro – travel like James Bond.

Whatever the case, it’s always worthwhile to listen to the pros – those nomadic people who travel the world as part of their job and can give invaluable advice on just about anything, from airport tips to the most useful apps to download before heading off on the adventure of a lifetime.

Ready and waiting

All truly good things do, unfortunately, have to end, and when the global sightseeing draws to a close and people finally head home, what a relief it is to know that all their worldly possessions are there in storage, just waiting to be picked up. It’s time to set up home all over again, before the next great getaway.
