Packing Up Your Home

Are you in the midst of a house move or getting ready for those all important estate agent images by using self storage? Here are our top tips for getting your items shipshape and ready to go!

~ Pack With Intention.

Organising and labelling your boxes may sound obvious but you’d be surprised at how many odds and ends can be thrown in any old box. By labelling with a general description of whats inside, along with the room it’s from you’ll save yourself a headache when trying to find those all important bits!

~ Be Sure To Use Sturdy Boxes

When packing, make sure you check that the boxes can hold the weight of what’s in them- you don’t want to get to your storage space and end up with all those belongings falling out of the bottom!

~ Empty Your Appliances

If packing up items such as kettles, irons, lawnmowers or washing machines ALWAYS make sure you have emptied any water or oil out of them. The liquids can damage your items and also cause a stink if left for too long!

~Organise Your Storage Space

Keep all boxes for each room together, ensure that anything that you may need to collect earlier is located to the front of your storage space- the last thing you want to be doing is rifling through every last box to find some documents you desperately need!

How To Declutter Your Home

Now the tree is down and the decorations have been put away for another year, are you feeling the urge to declutter?

Starting the process can be a lot- where on earth to start? We suggest beginning with a declutter checklist, there’s little more satisfying than ticking those jobs off. For each room why not create a mini plan of action, for example, in the bathroom we would recommend starting with the medicine cabinet and going from there!

Our top tip would be NOT to pull everything out at once without a plan- it can be completely overwhelming and put you off the task at hand. Why not have three zones; Put Away, Fix and Donate?

When you come across seasonal items and larger toys or pieces of furniture you may not use daily, we can help! From full containers to managed storage (individual, lockable space within a container), Anglia Self Storage can help free up space in your home. Please call our office for any advice or to discuss your storage needs.

Moving House

If you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, Anglia offers the perfect storage solution. Safe, social distancing is maintained at all times.

Here are some tips for selling your house and getting the best price!

Every seller wants to get the maximum sale price within the quickest time. You’ll be competing with other properties on the market so it’s vital you do everything within your power to maximise your chances of a sale.

Some things such as market conditions, location and price bracket admittedly aren’t in your control but the look and feel of your home most definitely IS so here are some selling tips and how anglia self storage can help ;

Maximise space by minimising your things.

This has to start before marketing your property – the agent’s photos are what will entice a buyer to view so the photos MUST look great. This sounds harsh but a potential viewer is not interested in your kid’s toys, photos of your family, or the ‘pile of stuff that’s going on Ebay’ when you get around to it. The buyer must not be distracted by you or your stuff. Create a look that your buyer is aspiring to such as a beautiful, ordered and relaxing lifestyle. Consciously or subconsciously they are seeing how your and their lives compare and they are aspiring to a ‘better life’ when they move. The key to achieving this look is to maximise space and layout in an attractive way.

Before and after a declutter

Space sells – Simple.

EVERYTHING you can live without temporarily should be out of sight, and this is where a storage unit offers the perfect solution. There are two advantages to this…

Financial Benefits and preparation in advance.

You may be thinking, ‘surely storage is going to cost me money!?’ 

Initially yes, you will need to rent a unit, but longterm this will maximise your chances of a fast sale and potentially your asking price. If your home looks like a show home rather than a hoarder’s den the buyer is less likely to knock you down on price. Your house could look so inviting it may attract more than one buyer – resulting in your asking price being met. 

Storage should be seen as an investment, not an expense.

Be prepared in advance

By packing non essential items away into storage you’re already starting your moving process practically and mentally. That means less to do later. Your belongings are safely waiting to be put into your next home, you’ll be avoiding last minute packing, chaos and stress.

In Summary

Store items that you can live without until after the move to create more space.

Create an aspirational style in your home that will entice prospective buyers.

Show each room and how it can be used to its full potential – and ensure it’s what your buyer would be expecting.

Sit back and look forward to selling for the maximum price possible and settling into your new home!

A guide to help you find the perfect storage solution

Brand new storage containers at anglia self storage

More and more people and businesses are choosing to put their things into storage when they are moving, downsizing – or simply in need of some extra space.

Making use of storage solutions can have a number of benefits, not least of which is helping to reduce the stress of moving day if you’re between homes. But with various options out there, it can be difficult to know which type of storage is the best for you. Here is some information about different types of storage. There is a checklist at the end to help you ask questions when phoning around for quotes.

‘Container Storage’ – At anglia self storage all our storage containers are ground level and outdoors. There are lanes between the rows between the units so vehicles may be parked at the unit doors for easy loading – even large removal lorries have plenty of room. The units themselves are new or ‘one-trip’ sea containers. Made from steel, these containers are fire-resistant, very strong and secure. This eliminates any risk of customers losing their belongings in a fire.

anglia self storage insulates their unit ceilings as a precautionary measure and are 100% watertight. We supply you with a heavy duty padlock, key and gate pass, all included in the price. You will not need to buy a padlock from anglia like at some facilities.

‘Warehouse storage’ or ‘indoor storage’ usually offers managed storage for your possessions, either in a purpose-built facility or inside a converted building. Often, access is limited to within working hours or an appointment has to be made in advance so the customer’s ‘wooden storage crate’ can be fork-lifted down to an accessible level. Storage units, can sometimes be housed on different floors and are linked by a series of lifts. You may need to take your belongings to the unit on a trolley.

CCTV – Most storage companies will advertise having CCTV, however it is important to check if this is ‘monitored’ CCTV, rather than CCTV which is simply making a recording. anglia self storage’s CCTV is monitored live by our security team – this is very important if security is important to you, as it means action would be taken immediately if security was compromised.

Flexibility of terms – Some storage facilities may require a minimum of 4 weeks storage from you, some request up to 6 months paid in advance. At anglia self storage we do ask you to pay up until the end of the current month but upon vacation we will refund any days that you didn’t need. The minimum length of storage with us is just two weeks.

… If you need extra storage space, whether it’s short term or longer get in touch to find out what our best storage options are for you. anglia self storage have small compartments if you just have a few belongings and 40ft long containers if you need to store the contents of a six-bedroomed house! Plus many sixes in between.

We’ll happily show you around our central Lincoln site – with covid precautions of course.


  1. Will I have 24/7 independent access to my storage unit anytime or do I have to make an appointment to access my belongings?
  2. Is the CCTV monitored ‘live’ by a security team?
  3. Are the storage units fire-resistant and insulated?
  4. If I leave early in a 4-weekly or monthly term will I get a refund for unused days?
  5. Will I need to buy or supply my own padlock?
  6. Is there space for me to park at my unit or turn around a van?
  7. Will I need to climb stairs or trolley my belongs to the storage unit?
  8. Lastly, some storage facilities may be cheaper than others. Therefore, remember to ask yourself, is it a ‘like for like’ comparison? For example, one storage company’s MEDIUM sized unit may be a different size to a MEDIUM unit elsewhere.
