Struggling with Working from Home? Self Storage to the Rescue!

Are you struggling with working from home due to your house being cramped and cluttered? To optimise your home and thus your work space in this post-pandemic, ‘WFH’ world you need self storage. You deserve the space to work efficiently and comfortably.

Invest in space and productivity with Boylin’s Self Store.

It is believed that this demand for self storage will continue as people have grown accustomed during the pandemic to having extra external space for their belongings.

Therefore, now is the perfect time for you to reflect on whether a self storage unit could benefit you during this time.

Self storage is an excellent investment and Boylin’s Self Store is here to outline just how a self storage unit can benefit you as a remote worker post-pandemic!

How can Self Storage Benefit You as a Remote Worker?

Below you will find the five most important reasons why you should consider an investment in self storage if you work form home.

1. Declutter Your Home to Optimise Your WFH SpaceDeclutter Your Home to Optimise Your WFH Space

If you’re struggling to work remotely from your home due to the visual noise and stress of clutter surrounding you on every side, self storage could help you carve out a calming and productive work space in your home.

Choose a corner of your home which could be a dedicated work space; this could be in a spare room, your bedroom, the cupboard under the stairs, in the kitchen or perhaps even in a garage.

Next you need to sort through all clutter that is in the vicitinity of your designated work space. Divide all the items into five piles:

  • to keep,
  • to recycle,
  • to donate,
  • to sell,
  • for self storage.

Don’t be tempted to leave the stuff hanging around as it will worm its way back, invading your now tidy and calming work space.

Take your recycling straight to the tip, your donations to the charity shop and start listing your items to sell on eBay, Depop, Vinted, or Facebook Marketplace.

Then take your excess items that you cannot part with to your nearest Boylin’s Self Store location and invest in cost-effective, external self storage. We have many accessible locations, such as: Barnsley, Bradford, Leeds, Rotherham, Sheffield, Swinton and Wakefield. Our sites are available during our usual convenient hours 06:00 – 18:30 Monday – Friday, 08:00 – 16:00 Saturdays, and 08:00 – 14:00 Sundays.

Now you have an organised and free work space to ensure that you are in the zone for your work day, even when you’re at home.

2. Self Storage Units are a Multipurpose InvestmentSelf Storage Units are a Multipurpose Investment

If you’ve grown accustomed to working from home, ensure your home office is practical and uncluttered thus allowing you to focus on your work while in the comfort of your own home but storing excess items in self storage. But a self storage unit can be used for storing many other items for many different purposes such as:

Alternatively, You could use Your Storage Space as a Home Office

Working from home can be distracting, particularly if you live with more than 1 or 2 people. You can use a self-storage unit as a mini home office throughout the day if you wish.

Renting a unit makes it easier for you to be able to separate home and work. It would be quiet, organised and a dedicated space for you to crack on and get some work done.

3. Self Storage Units are very Affordable!

Self storage units tend to be budget-friendly; it would be a lot cheaper to rent a storage unit the time that you are remote working rather than forking out to renovate and add an extension or another room to your home just to create a work space in your home.

At Boylin’s Self Store, we know the past 2 years has been a financial struggle for many, what with the pandemic and now the cost-of-living crisis. Therefore, we want to make your life as easy as possible with our accessible and affordable containers.

4. Safely Store Work Stock and Equipment

It is not only office workers who benefit from using self-storage units, but a lot of businesses can also benefit.

Even if you do not use your self-storage unit as a home office, why not use it as a place to store any extra work stock or equipment?

This will save you from taking up space in your own home and help to foster a healthy work/life boundary that many self-employed entrepreneurs often struggle First - Safely Store Work Stock and Equipment

Self storage containers are often used for business purposes such as inventory storage for eBay and Depop sellers, accounting records, business documents or tradesman tools. You can store your products, tools or documents in your unit, simultaneously freeing up space in your home and keeping your inventory safe.

For example, if you run a maintenance type of business e.g., joinery, plumbing, gas engineer, this type of work requires a lot of equipment. If you are just a start-up business too then you will need somewhere to be able to store your equipment.

With the security of a self-storage unit, this will probably be the best place to keep your work equipment anyway. Indeed, every single one of Boylin’s Self Store’s containers are wind and water tight as well as completely secure. All of our sites benefit from state-of-the-art CCTV and barrier controls which are only accessible through individual key or fob. Therefore, by investing in a self storage unit you are investing in the guaranteed safety of anything you store in your container.

5. Self Storage gives You Room to Grow

Renting a cheap self-storage unit leaves your business room to grow. It gives you the chance to utilise a storage space without having to commit to renting a warehouse or an office space which leaves you the opportunity to work from home if you wish, which means you can keep your stock in the unit and come and go as you please.

Indeed, to invest in a self storage unit is an extremely practical investment! As you can see, our containers can be used for a myriad of items, but not only this you are guaranteed to get a lot of use out of your storage unit as our sites are so accessible – meaning you get great value for money!
