Life on Hold?

EDIT: The UK is now on lockdown. We have been designated an essential service so we are still available to provide storage services for people who have a sudden and unexpected use for self storage. If your house move plans have changed and you need some help, please just get in touch.

If you need help with self storage, please just call our HQ on 01934 245013. We will always have someone available to answer the phone and talk you through the options available.

We have had lots of calls like this and we’ve been able to sort everyone out. You will be in safe hands.


Original Post

You’ve been preparing for this move for months, you’re excited about your new home, but worried about the stress that you know moving home can bring. Now we have all been asked to stay at home and everything has to pause.

Whether you’re downsizing, moving into your “forever home”, moving back from Uni or just looking for a change of scenery, the current Coronavirus has put a real spanner in the works.

The government’s advice is that all house moving completions where possible, should be delayed until the current crisis is over. That’s all well and good, but what if you’re caught in a chain or packed and ready for that big move overseas? You are going to need somewhere safe to store your life until everything gets back to normal.

At the Space Program, we are used to dealing with emergency situations. In February, our customers were coping with the floods and needed somewhere dry and secure to keep their belongings. This time we’re responding to the COVID 19 situation and how that affects the country.

Things still need to be stored in a safe, secure and accessible location, without having to compromise on the health guidelines issued by the authorities.

We have devised a way to complete the signup process online, so we can fully observe the government’s social distancing guidelines to keep both you and our team members safe.

If you need our help, just call the above number or the Mission Controller at your local Space Program and we can discuss how we can assist.
