Running a business from home is a
simple option if you don’t need a rented or owned premises. Not every type of
business can be easily operated from home as some require business storage. Working
from home is common for people who only need a small office space, who mainly
work on their computers or spend most of their time on their client’s premises.
Working from home may not be ideal if
it significantly changes the use of your home or affects your local area. For
example, if you rent your home and receive lots of visitors, your licence or
lease may include some restrictions. While more people are running
a business from home, is it really for you?
We know first-hand the stresses and
worries when moving house as sometimes there is just too much to remember. From
packing glassware and crockery to furniture, clothing and important documents,
you need to be prepared. While moving can be a stressful time, it should also be
exciting for the entire family looking forward to a future in their new home.
There’s no denying that moving into
a new house is a big job and packing is unfortunately one of the things you cannot
leave until the last minute. Look at moving and packing as an opportunity to consider
what you actually need, what must be thrown out or put into self storage.
To avoid last minute packing and
forgetting half your stuff, think about what you can pack in advance. You can start
clearing your wardrobe, shelves and cupboards of anything that you don’t often
use and pack some of it ahead of time. While there are many things to remember
when moving, packing glassware and crockery is among the most important. Not only
in terms of value but also the sheer amount of time it takes.
As the demand for self storage increases so does the need for additional premises. While our facilities in Bristol, Stroud and Gloucester provide excellent coverage, this expansion provides our customers with even more options. It’s been in the pipeline for some time but at last, Space Centre Self Storage Stonehouse could open late Spring.
