    Short-Term Storage For Moving House

    Moving into a new home brings excitement, but it is not without its challenges. Short-term storage can lighten the load of moving home by providing a space to store some of your belongings while you pack up the rest of your house in preparation for the move. Once you relocate, we can store your possessions, giving you time to redecorate without obstacles.

    Guardian Removals offers a personalised service. We can come to your home, pack up, seal, and secure your belongings, and take them to a storage unit at our secure site for the days or weeks you require storage. If you must extend your storage, for example, if your house move gets delayed, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our flexible terms can accommodate any changes to your schedule.
