Is using storage pods cost effective when moving home? 2547 1536 Stored Away

The aggravation and cost of moving house is not to be underestimated. When you find something that could potentially save you hassle and money, it’s definitely something to get excited about, but also necessitates a little caution – is it too good to be true? 

Storage pods, a service which is becoming more and more popular, is one such thing – it’s definitely convenient, but could they also help save you money? The answer, you’ll be happy to hear, is yes! In this article we look at how it can be a cost effective as well as super easy way to help you move house.

How do storage pods save you money?

A main reason as to why storage pods are cost effective is that they save you time, and time is literally money. At Stored Away, we offer a complete service – we collect the goods which need to be stored from you, store them at our secure location, then return the items to you when you’re ready. 

The ‘traditional’ way of doing this involves boxing everything up, hiring a van (if you can drive one) or finding a man with a van, finding a storage location, taking it there, then doing the whole process in reverse, when it’s time to get your possessions back. 

Replacing that whole process with a single service removes a whole headache of admin, and saves plenty of time, while keeping your peace of mind. And financially speaking, if you could be spending that time working, you’ll be saving money by freeing up time.

As well as saving you time, our storage pods service literally saves you money. Because we offer a complete service, the money that we save in terms of admin and logistics, we can pass on to you, our customer. 

Hiring a van to take your things to the storage place, getting moving insurance, finding and paying for a storage location, taking a day off from work to get to the location (and then another day off for collection) plus little bits like petrol and parking, all these things add up. 

As we own our fleet of vans and have our own storage location, we don’t have any of that hassle and added cost, so neither do you – booking the service is simple, and doesn’t involve the costs of searching and paying for each part of the process.

Moving home can be such a stressful and aggravating experience, and we here at Stored Away aim to make that process somewhat less of a test of endurance, helping you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Once the dust has settled, moving home can, after all, feel like you’ve been given a new lease of life, a fresh start! Contact us today if you have any queries as to how we can assist you, and find out which one of our removal and storage packages might best suit your individual needs. You can even use our handy storage calculator to get an idea of how much the process will cost.
