Lucinda studied building and surveying and has been running the family owned Space Centre Self Storage business with husband Mark since January 2008. Although the storage side of the business was established in 1995, the Dangerfield family started in the industry in 1900, when removal company J H Dangerfield & Son was founded. This means that not only can Space Centre provide you with storage facilities and solutions but also with good practical knowledge and advice too.
Moving house can often be chaotic and stressful where forgetting important
things is common. There are some preventative measures such as using experienced
movers and doing a final walk-through. Doing so will not only save you time and
money but also help avoid a difficult situation. This especially refers to making
sure you pack important medication and cell phone charger before handing over
Packing is part and parcel of moving
house and can be a challenging ordeal, particularly if you have a large house
or loads of storage space. We all know how quickly things pile up and get
shoved into all corners of the house. This is where that all-important question
comes in when moving house: “Did I forget something?”
If you’re new to self storage, the
first thing most people do is search online for the nearest facility and what self
storage costs. Besides finding out how much space you need, self storage fees
are high up on the list of important questions. Whenever you buy or hire something,
cost is often a primary consideration. If it’s too expensive, we tend to shop
around and when it’s cheap, we seem more content to take the plunge.
When we talk about self storage costs, it’s about more than just the unit itself. In fact, there are several add-ons many people don’t even think about such as insurance, travel costs, access charges and security deposits among others. Pricing is even more important when renting a self storage unit for long periods of time. Be sure to shop around for the best price while taking into consideration a few other requirements.
When you think of self storage, what comes to mind first? For some, it is a safe place to keep valuables, a safety net during a life altering transition, while others simply see it as a junkyard for people who hoard things. Whatever your perception, we felt it was time to bust some self storage myths wide open. Allow us to reveal the truth about why more people are using self storage and for what purpose.
As 2019 gets underway, Christmas is
already a distant memory with all the focus on the year ahead. Perhaps you’ve
just had a declutter and realised there are several unwanted Christmas gifts
lying around. While some presents may seem useful, let’s face it, you’re not
likely to really use any of them. Instead of stuffing them into drawers and cupboards
you have just cleared out, why not put them to good use?
For starters, you could donate your
unwanted Christmas gifts to a good charity that will find a use for them.
Homeless shelters are always looking for hats, gloves and toiletries while food
banks eagerly await food items and also toiletries. There are also many other charitable organisations that
provide things for people who are struggling.
Did you know that three out of five people receive unwanted Christmas gifts? With that in mind, please consider less fortunate people before you simply throw anything away.
With only a few days left before bidding 2018 farewell, have you given any thought to your New Year goals? Many of us start a new year with the best intentions to effect change but we often fail miserably. One of the main reasons this happens is setting unachievable goals or putting too much unnecessary pressure on ourselves.
Let’s face it, change is difficult and we’re not talking about painting a room baby blue instead of cream. Many New Year goals involve losing weight, quit smoking, getting a better job or making more of an effort to see certain people. Whatever your goals are for 2019, make sure they are small and achievable. Perhaps we can help prepare you for a better 2019 with some simple, yet effective goal setting tips. Continue reading →
