Feeling Cramped in London? How Storage Can Improve Living Spaces

By: | November 30, 2016 9:55 am

We’re all guilty of it – a suitcase jammed under the bed, plastic storage boxes on top of the wardrobes, several tool boxes in the garage, rarely used electrical items in the loft, kept on the off-chance that we may need them, and sooner or later, it dawns on us that we’ve lost the use of an entire room or part of our house or apartment.

Worried About Space During Renovations? Temporary Self Storage Can Help

By: | October 30, 2016 10:19 am

If you’re considering renovating your home, then you may also be wondering how you are going to create enough space to work in without your valuable items getting damaged.

Depending on the scale of work involved you may require a little or a lot of extra space to store things like furniture and breakables out of harm’s way. For example, if you decide you want to create a combined kitchen and dining room and knock out a dividing wall, you are guaranteed to see a lot of dust and mess.

Knocking out walls is a messy business and while you may be able to move a few items of furniture such as a dining table into another room, this will soon end up cluttering the space.

If you are fitting a kitchen as well then you might also need extra room for all the fixtures fitting and appliances that come along with it. Fitted kitchens generally come flat packed in many different sized boxes making it difficult to store them for any length of time.
The solution to all this is to find somewhere to stop your furniture and other items that might get in the way in self-storage. This will not only make the process less stressful but also protect your items from any damage cause by workers walking in and out or dust.

Concerned About Self-Storage Costs?

By: | October 22, 2016 10:18 am

Self-storage is a cost effective way of providing a safe secure home for your valuable items, but sometimes costs can end up being more than you had anticipated. For example, a temporary relocation abroad may turn into something more long term, or perhaps the move from University into a home of your own hasn’t quite gone to plan.

There can be all sorts of reasons why you may need to look at storage costs and seeking advice from the people managing your self-storage can be a good first step in managing your self-storage in a way that doesn’t end up costing you more than it should.

Self-storage customers are often surprised at the extra space they can free up in their units just with a bit of reorganisation. Advice on stacking and racking can reveal some surprisingly simple ways to better use space.

If you already have your storage space used up to the max, then it may be time to look at what you are storing. If you have some items that you’re not going to use, because they have been replaced with newer items, then there may be little sense in hoarding them.

If your unit is too full and disorganised, then it is likely to forget what you are storing! The key to good self-storage management is to only pay for the storage you need whether it’s for the long or short term.

Struggling With Seasonal Clothes Storage?

By: | October 11, 2016 10:17 am

The turn of the seasons often means taking stock of your wardrobe. You may have limited space and if you’re not one of those super organised people, it may be difficult to find anything different to wear when clothes get buried on top of each other.

So what’s the solution to the struggle for space in your wardrobe? Well as painful as it might be, the best thing to do is empty everything out and sort through the clothing you need and don’t need.

Some items you may never wear again and in these cases it’s best to take them to a clothes bank or a charity shop if they are in good condition. You could even sell them on ebay if you need the cash.

Once you have narrowed everything down to what you need, it should then be relatively straightforward to separate your summer clothes from your winter clothing. At this time of year you will want to make your winter clothes easily accessible towards the front and fine somewhere to store your summer clothes away until next year.

If you still happen to have a large wardrobe full of clothes bursting at the seams, then it may be time to consider a small self-storage unit which can be available at reasonable prices. Be sure to inspect your unit to make sure it is suitable.
