Whether you’re thinking of living on
a houseboat or going on holiday, you should always keep secure storage in mind.
Packing for holiday is pretty simple when you are staying at a hotel or Airbnb
but it’s more challenging for a boating holiday.
There is only so much storage space but
how do you know what to pack? You should only focus on taking the essentials (and
a bit more) which is often tricky in itself. So let’s have a look at this
simple guide for a happy boating holiday and a few secure storage tips.
If you live in a small house or flat, you know exactly what we’re referring to. Let’s be honest, bicycles are awkward to store and you need somewhere safe and secure. You need a space big enough where they won’t get damaged and somewhere they can be kept clean. Unless you’ve decluttered, don’t just throw them into the shed or garage as it may already be full of other stuff. You also don’t want to risk driving over your bicycle’s wheels if it’s just lying on the garage floor.
Whether you need to make space at
home or find another way, there are several things you could consider. Here are
some safe and suitable bicycle storage tips for everyone.
Increasingly, more people are going
away for extended holidays but what about all the important belongings? Unless
you can ask friends or family to look after your house or check in from time to
time, secure self storage may be the best option.
Car storage is an interesting topic
of conversation especially for those who collect and restore classic cars. For
the most part, people drive these collector’s items only a few times each year,
especially in summer, and require a safe and convenient location. On the other hand,
many people also store their cars when going away on holiday or extended business
Besides your house, your car is likely
the next most expensive asset and needs to be looked after properly. If you barely
drive your car, why risk leaving it parked in the driveway or on the street?
Not only does it tempt would-be car thieves but it also leaves your car exposed
to the elements. In this article, we take
a look at the benefits of car storage and how to prepare your car.
We may not like talking about it but
the sad fact is that many people will inherit a home with everything in it following
the death of family member. You may be lucky enough to be able to hold on to
the house and contents, but for many, distributing the inheritance or paying
costs means the house will need to be sold. After a family bereavement, secure
storage may not be high priority but what do you do with the contents?
Following a bereavement, there is
often outstanding debt, inheritance tax or other bills to pay. Some of the
belongings in the house may be valuable and could help financially but others
will have sentimental value. Don’t add to the traumatic experience by using a house
clearance company just yet; opt for secure self storage instead. Whilst selling
the house might be challenging, parting with a loved one’s belongings can be an
emotional experience. So why not do it right?
