Hints & Help
There are hundreds of reasons why people use self storage, and moving home is only of them.
Do you have excess furniture you don’t want to throw away? Sports equipment you rarely use? Too many clothes for the wardrobe? Children’s toys and collectibles you want to store safely somewhere? It’s easy to make space in your life by decluttering your home.
Many people think of self storage as an extension of their homes – the extra room around the corner that they can access any day of the year. The room that happens to be highly secure and monitored by 24-hour CCTV…
If you are thinking about decluttering, a simple first step is to audit your environment – take a good look at what is in the way! Some items may suit short term self storage while others, for example furniture, may require long term storage. Make a list of everything you don’t need to use or access very often – things you could do without on a day-to-day basis, but you don’t want to throw away.
Your list will probably contain some of the following:
- Furniture such as tables, chairs, sofas, beds etc.
- Filing cabinets
- Clothes such as wedding dresses, children’s clothes, winter or summer wardrobes
- Garden tools and equipment
- Sports equipment
- Musical instruments
- Books and files
- Collectibles and memorabilia
- Computer hardware and software
- Electrical equipment – fridges, televisions
Wouldn’t it be comforting to know that you can store all of these safely, and access them when it suits you?
