Following the passing of a loved one, bringing order to their belongings can be an emotional journey, filled with cherished memories that require care and time. Self storage after death can provide a temporary haven for these items. This allows you the space to grieve and make thoughtful decisions about their future. Here at Currie Easy Self Storage, we are here to help you every step of the way. 

Using a self-storage facility like Currie Easy Self Storage offers a considerate and organised way to cherish their belongings with care and respect.

It is important to acknowledge both the emotional and logistical challenges that may arise. We want to provide you with the guidance you need for using self storage facilities to manage your loved one’s belongings.

What is Bereavement Self Storage?

When you store your loved one’s belongings with us for four weeks, we’ll provide an additional four weeks free of charge. This forms part of our bereavement self-storage service, as we’re committed to assisting you as you grieve.

For additional peace of mind, all our storage units are all secure, climate-controlled spaces. This ensures all of your loved ones’ belongings remain safe whilst you process your grief.

We recommend assessing the volume of inherited items you have. Doing so ensures that you get a self storage unit large enough for all of your loved one’s belongings. Self storage after death becomes a thoughtful solution to managing these possessions. 

With flexible storage options and convenient access, you can retrieve treasured items whenever you are ready, without pressure or deadlines.

Storage for Sentimental Items

To protect your sentimental items, organising your storage is paramount. We always recommend carefully wrapping fragile items. Storing large furniture items vertically helps to maximise space. Packing heavy items at the bottom of boxes helps to prevent damage to any fragile items. Here are some ways you might categorise your loved one’s belongings:

  • Clothing: everyday wear, formal wear, seasonal clothing
  • Sentimental Items: photographs, letters and cards, keepsakes and mementoes
  • Kitchenware: cookware, utensils, dishware
  • Furniture: large pieces (tables, chairs, etc.), small furniture items
  • Decor and Artwork: paintings, decorative items, sculptures
  • Bedding and Linens: bed sheets, towels, blankets and comforters
  • Sports and Outdoor Equipment: sporting gear, camping equipment, outdoor furniture
  • Personal Items: toiletries, jewellery, personal accessories
  • Children’s Items: toys, baby gear, children’s clothing
  • Tools and Equipment: hand tools, power tools, garden equipment
  • Collectables: hobby-related items, collectable items
  • Medical and Health Items: medications, medical equipment, health-related documents
  • Vehicles and Accessories: car-related items, biking equipment, outdoor gear
  • Miscellaneous: items that don’t fit into specific categories, odds and ends

By addressing the practical aspects of self storage after death, we aim to provide a secure space for belongings and peace of mind during this period.

To help those in need, we encourage considering thoughtful options for unwanted belongings, such as donating, selling, or disposing of them responsibly. We have many local connections within the local community, so if you want to donate, please let us know and we will ensure they go to a good place.
