Why do I need Self Storage this Christmas?

Why do I need Self Storage this Christmas?

If you are wondering ‘why do I need self storage this Christmas?’ Boylin’s Self Store is the answer!

Put simply, self storage will make your Christmas smooth and stress free!

Up and down the country, Christmas decorations are being put up and at any given minute someone, somewhere, will be asking themselves, “Where the heck am I going to put this tree?” It’s an unavoidable fact that no matter how large and comfortable your home is, at Christmas there always seems to be too much furniture and/or too many people, and hiding gifts effectively becomes near impossible.

Christmas can be a notoriously stressful and overwhelming time, with family squashed into your house, present debris everywhere and a million and one things to do before the big day! Therefore, at Boylin’s Self Store we believe that storage should not be something you need to stress about over the Christmas period. We want to provide you and yours with the most useful, accessible and affordable self storage this Christmas!

It’s all well and good to store excess items, gifts, and stock in a garage, shed, or attic; but many people with smaller properties do not benefit from these privileges.

Therefore, we encourage you not to suffer in a cluttered, crammed home this Christmas. We want you to be able to focus on the joy of the festive season rather than be stressed about where everyone/everything will fit in your home.

Invest in a self storage unit to ease your anxiety and gain more space during the Christmas season!

Without self storage your home will become cramped and disorganised during the Christmas period, causing you and your family unnecessary stress. Read on to discover all the ways you can utilise a self storage unit during the Christmas period!

1. Hide Your Presents in a Boylin’s Self Store Unit

If you have small children, their gifts will probably be large and awkwardly shaped and there is no way they will not be spotted before the big day, wherever you hide them in the house.

If you have older children, their gifts will be small so they’ll be easier to hide, but there are fewer places where those children can’t reach…

Ultimately, keeping gifts in the house is impractical: the shed is too cold and prone to damp; the loft is scary; under the bed is home to many dust bunnies and gifts placed on top of the wardrobe are too precarious.

You’re left with the spare room, if you have one, but you’ll probably need that before Christmas to store other ‘things’ — like your parents or visiting friends.

Solve all your storage woes by putting your gifts into self storage.

Our self-storage units will afford you extra security from theft as every single one of our 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.

Moreover, our containers are conveniently ground floor accessible, so you can drive directly up to your container to offload or pick up your items, on the very same day (as our containers are available instantly), hassle free, saving you time and stress during the festive season.

Our units would also make a great place to wrap up your gifts in peace, safe from being walked in on or disturbed by prying family members. This will also help you to avoid the last-minute Christmas eve stress wrapping as it ensure you set aside time to go and wrap all of your gifts in an organised manner.

2. Storing Furniture and Seasonal Goods is Stress Free with Boylins.

If you have ever unloaded a 6’ pine tree from the back of your car and wrestled it into the house you will know that quite difficult to accommodate a Christmas tree without moving a few key items of furniture.

The key is prioritising — obviously, the sofa and the TV will have to stay, but do you need the extra side tables or the bookcase over Christmas?

As well as making it easier for people to move without falling over things, placing a few items of furniture into self storage over the Christmas holidays will make your house look larger, tidier, and more inviting.

You could also move your non-seasonal goods (like camping gear and sporting equipment) into your self storage unit and replace them with the presents.

Boylin’s facilities are great for storing large furniture items such as: desks, sofas, chairs to give you more room in your home to cram in decorations, a big Christmas tree, family members, or new items and gifts.

You can also use your storage unit to store smaller items such as clutter and an excess of children’s toys to free up as much space in your home as possible, making your festive period spacious and stress free.

3. Reclaim Your Spare Room with Boylin’s Self Store.

If you are fortunate enough to have a spare room, it probably becomes a bit of a dumping ground during the year when it is not being used to accommodate guests. Then Christmas rolls around and suddenly you are faced with finding somewhere for friends and family to lay their head.

If you need to sort out your spare room to give your guests a bedroom over the Christmas holidays, you can easily put the things you store in the spare room into your self storage unit.

Whether you decide to reclaim them and return them to the spare room when everyone has gone home or keep them in your unit for the longer term is up to you.

4. Seasonal Stock Storage for Online Sellers!

Small business owners can store their stock easily during busy Christmas season with Boylin’s Self Store.

If you have extra seasonal stock lined up to sell in the run-up to Christmas or over the January Sales, you can store it in your self storage unit where it will be kept clean, safe and dry until you need it.

Do not struggle and stress over stowing your stock in your already crowded home this Christmas.

This way your business will not infringe upon your family Christmas; and prying, messy children’s hands will not damage your valuable stock!

Our storage units are perfect for storing seasonal stock just for the Christmas period or year round, as we provide a variety of flexible contracts! This means our containers are ideal for eBay, Depop, Vinted and Esty sellers or small online business’s to keep your stock safe and sound ready to be shipped at any time!

Our units are also useful for a tradesman looking for an accessible and safe location to store your tools and equipment over the festive period, as these tools could be a hazard during the crowded Christmas seasons with children running around the house!

Overall, self storage is a beneficial investment for your business not just during the festive period but year-round as demonstrated by our previous article.

5. Decorations are Kept Safe and Sound Post-Christmas thanks to Boylin’ Self Store

Christmas decorations are all fun and games when they are up and adorning your home, making it feel festive and jolly.

But when the holiday is over, they can cause havoc as they are bulky, sometimes fragile and valuable and are therefore difficult to store safely in your already crowded home.

With the New Year comes the chance to take everything down again and have a good clean and organise.

Storing your decorations in your self storage unit until they are next needed will keep them safe and easy to access for next year. A self storage unit is the best place to store your Christmas items such as a big bulky Christmas tree, delicate baubles, and valuable heirlooms as they are externally stored and not cluttering your home as well as guaranteed to be secure in our protected storage units.

Make your life easier and invest in self storage this Christmas.

6. Self Storage = Perfect Solution for Small Home Owners in Search of Space this Christmas

Post covid, many people have been working from home or spending much more time in their houses than usual. Hence, many people use self storage units in order to make room for their home office, home school or just to make their property seem more spacious and less claustrophobic.

This has caused a big boom in the self storage industry which we believe is extremely beneficial as people are getting the most out of the space available to them leading to a better quality of life!

Moreover, as house prices soar, many people are forced to remain in smaller properties that do not accommodate for their needs. Consequently, many people have been investing in external self storage in order to maximise their space within their small property.

This tactic could be especially useful during the Christmas period!

If you are a small home owner, do not suffer in a cramped, crowded house this Christmas. With friends and family piling into your home over the festive season it is easy to become overwhelmed and forget that this is a joyful occasion.

But don’t fret, Boylin’s Self Store we are here to lend a helping hand this Christmas!
