Reasons To Use Self Storage When Moving Home

1

Help Stage Your House


If you’re selling your home, it’s important to make it look as spacious and clean as possible by clearing out bulky unnecessary items.

2

Covering Time ‘In Between’ Homes


There is often quite a gap between selling one house and being ready to move into your new home. Customers use our storage solutions to cover this time. Also when you’re in a buying chain, often delays can crop up at the last minute. Don’t worry, we offer flexible short-term solutions to help.

3

Renovating Your New Home


Just because you’ve got your keys doesn’t mean that you’re ready to unpack and settle straight in. Get those important renovating jobs done before all your furniture and boxes fill up the space. Take the time to clean your new house properly and to plan exactly how you’ll use each room.

4

Heading Abroad


Maybe you just landed an amazing job opportunity overseas, or are escaping on a gap year? Customers often choose to rent out their homes while abroad for long periods of time and utilise our storage options to keep their belongings safe.

5

Downsizing


You may have decided that the time is right to downsize your life, but still have belongings that you want to keep. Renting a separate storage room can make a lot of sense.

Don’t take our word for it...

Hi, my name is Michael and I’m here at Wm. O’Brien’s Storage just outside of Cork City. My wife and I moved to Cork just over two months ago and when the removals van arrived we figured out pretty quickly that not all the stuff was going to fit in to our new house.

So while the removal team were still there I called Barry at Wm. O’Brien’s. Barry had a unit ready for us within an hour so that the removal truck could take the remaining furniture and belongings straight to the self storage unit that Barry arranged for us.

Wm. O’Brien Storage suits us perfectly. It has 24 hour access. It’s nice and clean. We have a locked unit where we can access our belongings whenever we want. The staff are nice and friendly and greatest of all it’s very flexible. So you can up size or downsize your unit as you need to.
