easyStorage Joins the NAFD

easyStorage has joined the National Association of Funeral Directors as a supplier member (and we got a shout-out in their monthly magazine too!). It was natural for easyStorage to join the Association, considering that a number of our customers put belongings into safe keeping after a death, either whilst probate is being resolved or properties are being sold, giving families and friends a breathing space to focus on the important things first.

The National Association of Funeral Directors, NAFD, offers funeral advice and education to funeral directors and members of the public.

easyStorage is now a supplier member of the Association, meaning that we get the opportunity to work with funeral homes around the UK and help them fulfil any potential storage needs that arise as a result of death. With the help of our respectful and efficient storage service, we help bereaved families with all matters related to a deceased person's belongings; whether this is because of a house sale or a probate.

Other professionals, including the emergency services and the caring professions, often use the Association to develop their skills and help build strong working relationships.

It is a two-way relationship.  easyStorage is able to offer special rates and support to funeral directors, whilst at the same time taking time to network with funeral directors to find out their challenges and how easyStorage could help their businesses and their customers’ needs.

easyStorage appeals as it offers a convenient and efficient approach to self-storage, particularly in difficult situations such as because of a death. We bring the storage space - the easyPods - to the customer's door with our vans, load the belongings into them, secure them safely and take them to a secure easyStorage facility. We can also help with packing, leaving the customers with nothing to worry about aside from arranging access to us on the day. When ready, we return them and unload them back to an address of their choosing.

We understand how a death can impact someone's life and we want to help take the strain during these difficult times. This is why, by working with the National Association of Funeral Directors, we can help provide affordable and convenient bereavement storage services and offer collective assistance to the bereaved and their families.

With over 20 years' experience in the storage industry and amongst all of our franchisees around the UK, families can expect a personable and discreet service when dealing with us. It's the empathy and ability to deal with difficult situations that sets us apart from the competition - together with the fact that our customers don't need to worry about the traditional 'hassle' of storage (moving vans, packing, etc.).

The success of easyStorage shows in the TrustPilot review results – currently over 95% of customers rate us as excellent.

Claire joined the easyStorage family as a blogger in August 2020 and is loving it! Her passions include writing and learning, and with easyStorage she’s learning new things fast. When not tapping at a keyboard she can be found renovating an old cottage, despite having inherited a complete lack of DIY skills from her father. She has two children, now grown up, and a dopey, loving Vizler (dog), Chester, who steadfastly refuses to do the same. She claims he’s her soulmate!
