Why Move To Edinburgh?

There are a whole host of reasons to move to Edinburgh and it’s no wonder why it is one of the most popular places to live in the UK.  The great thing about Edinburgh is the fact that there truly is something for everyone.  Being one of the most popular cities  in Scotland, there is so much to do, so many places to explore and you’ll feel right at home in no time.  Edinburgh is also the capital city of Scotland and home of the Scottish Parliament – Pàrlamaid na hAlba.  Many families decide to move to Edinburgh to have nearby access to the exhilarating countryside on their doorstep and to allow their children to enjoy the joys of nature.  For businesses, there is a great sense of community which makes network really easy and the sheer size of Edinburgh presents a whole host of further opportunities that smaller towns simply can’t.

If you have made the decision to move to Edinburgh, it’s now time to sort out removal and storage arrangements…


Here at Edinburgh Self Store, we provide removals for customers throughout Scotland moving to Edinburgh from all types of properties including smaller flats, apartments, larger houses and even mansions.  We take care of your personal possessions and belongings as if they were our own and are able to safely remove and transfer the entire contents of your property room by room to ensure nothing gets left behind.  Our team is fully equipped to undertake all types of business and domestic moves and we are even able to move students into their new student halls.  For every type of move, you will be assigned a dedicated moving manager that will be on hand throughout the full process to ensure everything runs smoothly with little hassle or delay.


As your one-stop removal service, all packaging materials will also be provided by our team at Edinburgh Self Store.  Standard packing materials and bespoke containers are available for all business and domestic customers so you won’t have to source these materials for yourself as they are easily accessible with us.  For fragile items, such as antiques, framed art and other specialist items, we prioritise and ensure that they are carefully positioned and secure with our vehicles.  Packaging materials available include;-

  • Cardboard boxes.
  • Plastic storage boxes.
  • Protective covers.
  • Dust sheets.
  • Bubble wrap.
  • Tissue paper.
  • Shrink wrap.
  • And much more.


As our name suggests, of course, we also provide self-storage solutions as one of our main services.  When moving to Edinburgh, you may want to move in at a slower rate and unpack and place just essential items initially.  If this is the case for you, you can take advantage of our conveniently located self-storage solutions to place non-essential items until you are ready to move in.  Likewise, for students, we offer flexible storage solutions that allow you to bring as many items to Edinburgh as you like.  We know that first-year student halls are relatively small and are only built to hold the basics so having this storage option is beneficial.
