Everybody loves Christmas. The land is white, the cookies are yummy, and the house… the house gets unusually crowded for the holidays. Between presents, trees and decorations (not to mention relatives!), you barely have space to breathe, let alone put your feet up. Because of this, what’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year ends up being the most stressful.
Big Blue Squirrel, a self-storage service in Essex, provides the solution: why clutter up your house, when you can use self-storage, instead?
What are the benefits of self-storage for Christmas?
1. Ideal for presents
As any parent will know (and not only), finding good places to hide your Christmas presents year in, year out, can get tricky. Well, this is where a self-storage unit can come in handy. It’s natural for people to get a little snoopy around the holidays, and over time, they’ve probably learned all your go-to hiding holes.
Well, worry not, for your family won’t think to look here for their presents, and you’ll have all the space you need to put together an awesome Christmas haul. They will be safe and dry, so you don’t have to worry about your loved ones’ gifts becoming damaged as they wait to be opened.
Even better, if you’re ordering the presents online, you can have them delivered directly to the self-storage space, so that you don’t need to go back and forth with a trunk-load of goodies.
2. Decoration Time? Not yet
We all love a nice Christmas Tree or even a full house of decorations. However, the trouble with Christmas decorating is that when it’s not Christmas, you have to worry about a whole lot of decorations that your house just doesn’t have space for. The more baubles, and wrappings, and ornaments you gather, the harder it becomes to store them all in your home.
So why not put them in self-storage? A storage unit can keep all of your Christmas decorations safe and dry, so that you no longer have to worry about them becoming crushed under other items, shattered baubles, or other common concerns. And you get to free up your home, so it’s a win-win.
3. You can put furniture here
As you gear up for the holidays, you may have to move some things around to make room for people, a Christmas Tree, or other decorations. But where are you going to put them? Sure, it’s a bit uncomfortable to move your coffee table to and from storage, but it’s very convenient.
4. Business-owner? Self-storage is for you
Self-storage can also be a great idea if you are a business owner and are preparing for January sales, or other seasonal offers. Putting new or on-sale merchandise in storage might be just what the doctor ordered, to keep your business running, but also hold on to your peace of mind.
At the end of the day, self-storage is a great idea all year, but most of all, at Christmas.
