Moving and storage for a home renovation

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR STUFF DURING A HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

With the current unstable housing market, home owners continue to stave off buying new homes and turn towards home renovations as a more viable option. There is also a growing trend of young couples buying old fixer uppers in up and coming areas around the city such as Leslieville and the Junction. A home improvement does not only address a need for more space or an updated design but can also add value to a home if done right.

GET HELP FROM PROFESSIONALS!

To make the process easier, free up space and avoid a mess, consider storing furniture and belongings offsite during a renovation. Depending on the size of the renovation, you may have to tear down walls, rip out floors, replace plumbing and electrical and more. If you’re are looking to give your home a full make-over, storing in a safe and secure facility will protect your possessions and make work easier, safer and faster for contractors. It will also be a lot less stressful for you as you won’t have to worry about your stuff.
