London’s N15 post code is well worth a look if you’re in the market for a new home. Part of it is located in Harringay, which is home to both a well-established and bustling high street; Green Lanes. It’s also near one of London’s great beauty spots; Finsbury Park. Finsbury Park is one of the great Victorian parks, and caters to many different sports fans; it has facilities for Football, Tennis and Basketball to name just a few.
So if you hold shopping or sports as one of your interests, the N15 post code is a great place to be. Though, if you’re a shopping and sporting enthusiast, you’ll know all about the advantages of extra storage space. Your sports equipment and shopping spoils all have to go somewhere, after all. But storage space becomes all the more important when you’re moving house … You’ll be moving a lot of goods around after all, so where are you going to put it all? The smart way to go about packing for a move is to get as much of it done as possible before hand. You can’t just have moving boxes piled up everywhere for the weeks running up to your move, you’ll have to put them away. That’s where Self Storage comes into the equation.
Self storage is basically rented N15 storage space, and it comes in a variety of sizes. There’s locker sized ones, if you want to keep your smaller, more personal objects out of the bigger storage containers. There’s room sized ones for all of your boxes and furniture, and outside garage sized ones for keeping gardening equipment, as well as different types of motorised transport. Whichever one you go for depends on your storage needs; how much will you be putting away, and how long you’ll be putting everything away for. For an average move, a room sized unit will usually suffice.
Once you’ve figured out which sized unit you’ll need, it’s time to start looking for some storage space. One of the main things to keep in mind is to hire one that’s local. A local company is more convenient, because to get things into and out of storage you don’t have to travel very far. This means you don’t have to take much time out of your day to put everything away, and you don’t have to travel if you need to take things out at short notice.
Though, that being said, if convenience really is an issue, you could just hire a storage company that offers a ‘moving storage’ service. The moving storage service is an option that most self storage companies offer – in basic terms, they’ll send some staff over to your home, and they’ll collect your storage fodder and put it away for you.
Once you’ve found a convenient and affordable storage N15, you’ve got to make sure you pack everything up properly and store it all correctly. If you’re moving house, you’ve probably already got everything packed to a high standard, but just in case, here are a few quick tips;
Get a hold of proper moving boxes before you pack, you want the most dependable packing materials so they’ll hold up for as long as you need them. Use liberal amount of bubble wrap, especially on the fragile and precious items – those precious items should also be packed away from the heavier items. When packing furniture, lots of care should be taken when putting them into storage. Wrap them up in plastic to protect the upholstery, even if you’re only storing it for the short term.
So, whether you’re using Harringay self storage for your N15 move, or just because you need the extra space, consider the options available to you. The size of the storage container is very important, as is the company you hire. Do your research and you’ll find the one that’s right for you.
