Across Exeter and the Southwest, Christmas decorations are being dragged out of broken boxes and put up and people will realise again, they have no room for the tree! It is a common truth that no matter how large and comfortable your home is, at Christmas there always seems to be too much furniture and too many people. So, if your home has reached bursting point, or if your seasonal business stock is stacked as high as legally allowed, read about the ways in which others use self-storage for extra space at this festive time of year.
Hiding The Christmas Presents
If you have small kids, the presents will possibly be large and awkwardly shaped and there is no way they will not be spotted before the big day, wherever they are hidden. If you have older children, the gifts will be small in size so they should be easier to hide – hopefully.
Solve all your storage woes by putting your Christmas gifts into self-storage. They will be kept safer and drier in your indoor unit thanks to our self-storage’s CCTV and alarm coverage. Depending on the size of your unit, you might even decide to use it as a space to wrap your gifts without fear of anyone barging in!
Storing Your Christmas Stock
Business owners and local online retailers can stop panicking! If you have lots of extra stock ready to sell on Black Friday, 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 actually need it or for when you need to dispatch it.
Storing Furniture For Christmas
Have you ever taken a 6-foot-tall pine tree from the back of a car and wrestled it into your house, then you will know that it is surprisingly difficult without moving most of the furniture around your living room? Obviously, the sofa and the telly will have to stay, and that coffee table is pretty useful for the Christmas nibbles and wine glasses, but do you need the extra side tables or the bookcase over Christmas? Placing a few items of furniture into self-storage over the festive period will make your house look larger, tidier and more inviting to your guests.
Taking Down The Christmas Decorations
So, we come to the new year and that time – yes taking down the decorations. They are suddenly not a novelty; they are just taking up space and gathering annoying dust. The new year gives us the chance to take everything down again and have a good clean and organise the home again. Self-storing your Christmas decorations in your self-storage unit until they are next needed will keep them safe and easy to access for next year – and out of harm’s way.
Think we agree that Christmas is a big enough challenge without having to spend a lot of time figuring out where to put everything or banging your shins on furniture that does not belong in the room. Have a think about making life easier by using self-storage this Christmas.
