Although we are only open less than 12 months here at Sturdy Self Storage Kilkenny, we have noticed the stress and the expense that moving house can have on people.

Here are our top tips to make your move easier.

Skip it or sell it

Storage units are great to facilitate your home move. When considering self-storage , the size of your unit is the main factor in determining how much you pay.  By throwing out and skipping the stuff you know you don’t want or need in the future, you will be able to get a smaller storage unit and save money.

Additionally, selling some of your items can help fund your move!

Pack and label early

We have had some customers move in hastily and in panic mode. This results in inefficient packing and not knowing where their items are in their unit. Take some spare time that you may have now to sort items into boxes, and then appropriately label the boxes. Trust us, this will make life a lot easier!

A cost people may not consider is the boxes used to store your items. Sure, you can buy our boxes on sale, but you could save money by going to local supermarkets to take theirs when they are unpacked.

plan and seek help

Self storage units in Kilkenny are in high demand. We thoroughly recommend planning your move. Give Shane a call and he can try ensure to keep a suitable unit size available for you at the time of your move. Also consider how you will get your items into storage. Removal companies, and a man with a van are great options to help your move go smoothly. If you are on a tighter budget or don’t mind moving your own items, consider our discounted van hire option and get help with your move.


We hope the above helps you decide your strategy for storage. Kilkenny is thriving at the moment so storage units are in high demand. If you want to learn more, please call or even check out our Instagram and Facebook pages!
