Updated Video Removals Slider

Reading the property pages of the Yorkshire Post newspaper at the weekend, we spotted an article about an exciting new piece of tech which could change the way we view houses up for sale.

The Matterport, from America, is a very clever camera with interactive 3D and virtual reality tours and floorplans, like a 3D doll’s house with no walls or roof. Definitely a step forward from the wobbly, grainy videos currently available. The tours, alongside high resolution stills, help give a better idea of the house for potential viewers – more tangible ideas of room size and layout and flow. Everything is in crystal clear HD and its immersive properties mean it’s the closest you can get to actually being in a house. So, it’s a bonus in terms of selling your home, but also ensuring property searchers don’t waste their time – or the homeowners’ time – with viewings which will never go any further.

It made us think about the exciting new video surveys we introduced a few months ago. In today’s busy world, no one has a minute to spare, and so anything which cuts down the time needed is a winner. Instead of you having one of our estimators come out to see your house in person, we can take a look via the magic of smartphones – in much the same way as a Skype or FaceTime call. The video function allows us to get a really clear idea of how much needs moving (and packing) and therefore enables us to get you a quote quickly and easily.

But the other thing the technology got us considering was how tidy you’d need to have your home to have people viewing it that closely! Zooming in on your shelves and kitchen worktops – there’s nowhere to hide! Even the ‘old fashioned’ way, with photos and visits, there’s a lot to be said for making your home clutter free, clean, bright and airy. Give the impression of ample space and storage – even if the lack of it is the reason you’re moving!

That’s where self storage often comes in. Time to get rid (temporarily) of all those bits and pieces you don’t need everyday – spare kitchen appliances to clear off the work surfaces, extra tables and shelving units you can do without and those big bulky toys the kids don’t really play with any more.

With self storage centres in Harrogate, Leeds and Wakefield, we can provide storage units of all shapes and sizes. If you tell us roughly how much you want to store, we’ll find you the right unit. The equivalent of a garage load? A small spare room? An entire three bed semi? No worries!

Prices start from just £6 a week, and everything is kept safe and secure behind your very own lock and key – no one else can get in there other than you (not even us). You can get access 24 hours a day if needed, we have lots of car parking and handy trolleys and lifts to get your bits and pieces safely stored away.

So, if your home is ready to be the star of the show – why not give us a call?


Extremely efficient and prompt service. Lee and Conner were very helpful and the job was completed without a hitch. I would recommend them and definitely use the service again. Thanks.
