Moving House

One of the biggest stresses in moving house is having to contend with the chain -everything is lined up and you are set to buy your dream home, and your buyer pulls out. One way out of this is to break the chain, by selling your house first. This turns you in to that most valuable thing, the cash buyer. It can be worth a considerable amount to be in this position -you can proceed immediately and sellers are often inclined to accept a much lower price from cash buyers.

To achieve this it is necessary to accept that there will be a period where you do not actually own a home, but rather put your goods into storage and take a short term rental. Big Yellow Self Storage can make this possible with their network of 64 stores in key locations in London and the South of England, and they are now expanding to cover the rest of of the country. Why not get a quote online-it is simpler than you might think, and you even have the key to your own storage space so you can get to your possessions when you need to.
