Why You need Self Storage around Christmas Time

Running up to and during Christmas, you are likely to find your home filling up with gifts, purchases and guests. The holidays mean rearranging furniture, putting up decorations and making sure the children’s gifts are out of the way of prying eyes. Your home is going to become more and more cramped for space with all your secret stash. Moreover you have to make room for guests in the spare room. Besides the struggle to find that perfect gift for your loved ones and the desire to make sure your guests feel comfortable during Christmas and the pressure to put up a Michelin star worthy Christmas menu, the last thing you need is clutter in the way. Self-storage is a good option to consider any time of the year, but it’s especially handy this time of the year.

Besides making room for expected guests, here are some other benefits that come with using self-storage during the holiday season.

Who doesn’t enjoy a surprise? You may have good gift hiding skills but you just can’t match up to the curiosity and hunting skills of a child. Trying to hide presents from your kids may seem like mission impossible to many parents. It doesn’t help that there are sites that actually guide kids about all the places they’re likely to find their presents. If you don’t want to run the risk of your children finding their presents and ruin the surprise, then consider renting a self-storage unit. This way the presents will be tucked safely inside a self-storage unit until Christmas and you need not worry about the kids finding them.

During the holidays, many of us play host to guests traveling from across the nation. If you will be having 2, 3 or 10 guests arriving at your doorstep around this time, chances are you will definitely need some extra space. However long they stay, they will be carrying a host of bags and belongings and you need to find somewhere for them to sit or put their things away. Having a self-storage unit to temporarily store all unneeded items can go a long way in helping you clear up space for your guests. If you live in a small home, this is even more important.

The spare room in your house is where most people normally store their extra Christmas goods. But if you have been using the same space all year to store things that you only use from time to time then it would be wise to de-clutter in the build up to Christmas. A small self-storage unit is what you will need to move all your non-essential items to help create some much-needed space in your home. And when the festive season draws to a close, you can bring your things back home or keep them in the unit for a New Year clean out.

When you bring home a Christmas tree that takes up most of the living room, you are left thinking that it didn’t seem that big in the store! Most of us need to rearrange furniture to make space for the Christmas tree and decorations. In a small home this can be a real challenge. Moving the surplus furniture to another room is not an option, especially if you have family coming to stay. However, renting a self-storage unit will open space in your home that you need. You can also store furniture and extra items there until the holidays are over.

Self-storage can be a real blessing for small businesses around this time of the year. Your business could do with some extra storage space just for the holidays so that you can carry extra stock and inventory. Or, if your business will be quieter over the winter months you may need to store away tools and equipment until the weather clears up again. If you need extra room to store items, stock, placards, signage, etc. for your business, then consider self-storage.
