Moving to Wigan? Be in the know!

Are you moving to Wigan? Moving home can be a stressful process, from beginning to organise your possessions to trying to remember what you’ve put where while unpacking.

Here’s what you need to know about SureStore’s self-storage facility and how our services can help you move home the easy way.

About Wigan

Although a Greater Manchester town, Wigan is also the largest settlement in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan and dates back to the first century when the area was a Roman settlement. Since then, Wigan has been recognised for many reasons such as its industrial past, tasty pies, Northern Soul scene, and big attractions such as The Old Courts multi-arts centre.

Ideally located in the North West, the town boasts excellent transport links with easy access to the M61, M6, M62 motorways, meaning you can reach both Manchester and Liverpool in less than an hour.

Wigan is the greenest urban borough in Britain with over 70% of green space including Haigh Woodland Park and Mesnes Park. Easy access to city life and the countryside makes Wigan a fantastic place to live for professional commuters and young families.

It’s also a great place to do business, with more and more people choosing to launch their start-up companies in Wigan. As a vital player in the Northern Powerhouse movement, Wigan has a bright future, and the development of the HS2 railway line is set to improve the local economy and job opportunities further.

How SureStore can help you with moving to Wigan

The team at SureStore are proud to offer innovative self-storage solutions to help you when moving to Wigan. With a wide range of self-storage options, customers can choose to store anything from a few boxes to the entire contents of their home in order to make the moving process as smooth as possible.

Whether you store with us for weeks or months, you can be confident that your furniture and possessions are safe and secure.

Choose from a range of self-storage unit sizes

At SureStore Wigan, we provide self-storage units in a range of sizes. With units ranging from 10sqft, large enough to store up to 20 boxes, to over 200sqft, capable of storing the contents of a 5-bedroom house.

Check out our handy SureStore Size Guide to help you decide what size unit you will require when moving home to Wigan.

Flexible & Affordable Self-Storage Solutions

When moving home, it’s common to experience unforeseen issues and setbacks due to buyer chains or a change of circumstance. This can often lead to people living between homes or in temporary accommodation. Luckily, the team at SureStore Wigan are here to help with affordable and flexible managed self-storage plans while you wait to move into your new home.

SureStore’s services could also save you money when moving to Wigan. We understand the importance of de-cluttering your home before making the big move, and removals services often charge by the hour and number of trips required. This can become a costly process if you have a lot of possessions, but by storing your essentials with SureStore, you can reduce the cost of moving as well as making the process easier and more organised!

Once you’ve received the keys to your new Wigan home, you may decide to make the most of our flexible solutions and continue to store with us while you decorate or renovate your home. We can help make jobs such as painting or fitting carpet a whole lot easier by helping you to avoid manoeuvring around piles of boxes and awkward furniture.

Highly Secure Facilities

At SureStore Wigan, we boast the latest security technology so our customers can be confident that their household possessions will be safe and protected while they move home. Our domestic self-storage units benefit from 24/7 CCTV surveillance and individual alarm systems.

Specialist Packaging & Boxes

We also offer a fantastic range of specialist boxes and packaging supplies, available individually or in convenient bundles to help keep your possessions safe, clean and dry in storage. From wardrobe boxes designed to keep your clothes neat to dust sheets for your furniture and bubble wrap to help keep fragile items in one piece, we’ve got all you need for a successful move to Wigan!
