So you’ve got some things that need shifting and have decided self storage is the answer – the tricky bit is getting it from A to B. It’s too valuable for the dump, too big to fit in the car and trying to haul it down the stairs on your own would just end up with a you-shaped-Banksy-esque mural impressed on the hallway wall.
Once you’ve lined up your storage and roped in a mate (or two) you’ll need to get yourself a suitable vehicle. Usually a white van. If you’re really unlucky it’ll come adorned with the traditional dashboard fayre of the previous tenants: a copy of the News of the World, the wrappings of a McMeal, a half eaten Ginsters and an empty ‘grab bag’ of Walkers cheese and onion. And a fuel needle that’s below the red.
Then you’ll have to go and pick it up, get back through the London traffic to your pad, load up, drive to your self- storage centre, drop the van back off at the van rental place and finally get back to your pad. Or to put it another way – from A to B, back to A, then to C, then back to B and then back to A again. Six trips, minimum, all through van-loving London traffic.
There’s a far easier answer though. You could just store with ABC Selfstore and we’ll throw in a 1/2 day’s Free Van Hire. You pick it up from us and leave it with us when you’ve unloaded and you’re done. And as our van offer is in conjunction with Zipvan it’ll come without those (un)savory dashboard extras. To find out all the details give your nearest store a ring.
