Handle With Care - Top Ten Self Storage Tips - Leeds

You have secured a self storage container, have a lock and have ensured that your items will be safe in a self storage Leeds facility - what next?

It is important to think about the finer details of self storage because it will make a difference as to whether your items stay in good condition or not.

Here are some tips:
  1. Pack everything away in boxes. It helps when you are moving things, as well as when you are packing things in your self storage container in Leeds.
  2. Don't pack away anything in airtight plastic bags or containers - they will accumulate moisture and get ruined. Instead use breathable paper.
  3. Make sure that you leave some charcoal in the container before you close it up - charcoal is very effective in absorbing moisture.
  4. Dismantle furniture whenever possible - it makes it much easier to move.
  5. Make sure that you secure the right vehicle in advance of your move. It may sound like an easy task, but it can be hard to come across a pickup or a van at the last minute. Some moving companies have vehicles that you can hire.
  6. If you will be storing appliances make sure that you drain all liquid out - it prevents them from rusting.
  7. Make sure that all boxes are properly labeled - it helps during retrieval. You should also leave space between rows of boxes big enough for you to fit.
  8. Any fragile items should be wrapped in bubble wrap and newspapers before being boxed and then stacked at the very top of the container - it reduces the risk of damage.
  9. If you will be storing furniture such as sofas and beds make sure to get covers for them so that they don't accumulate dust over time.
  10. Make a detailed list of everything that you have so that you don't have to rack your brain wondering whether something is in self storage or not.
You may do all these things, but if you don't choose the right storage facility in Leeds your items will get damaged.

That is why it is important to go with a reputable storage facility like Boylin's Self Store.

They are one of the most secure self store Leeds facilities and their self storage containers are weatherproof.

They come in different sizes, so if you have more items to store in the future you can rent a bigger one.

Creating the Perfect Space for Working from Home in Rotherham

As more and more people choose to work from home you may be considering turning a room in your Rotherham home into an office so that you can do the same. Dont forget to factor in ample storage solutions where required.

It is important that you create a space that is not only functional but also one that is comfortable and aesthetic.

Here are some valuable tips to guide you as you create your home office:
  • Browse online for your ideal 'look and feel'. Unless you are perfectly sure of what you want your office to look like you may find yourself grasping for ideas. Fortunately there are many websites that can provide you with wonderful ideas that you can put into use. Websites like Pintrest and others are a good place to start.
  • Ergonomics should be at the top of your priority list too. You want an office that is comfortable so that you can work for as long as you need to without tiring.
  • Buy the right kind of chair and desk and make sure that your computer or laptop is in the right position.
  • Put light front and centre. When creating a home office the natural instinct is to try and recreate the office cubicle. You can do much better than that - put your desk near the windows so that you can get as much natural light as possible. Not only will your office look unique, you will also be able to work for longer without tiring.
  • However much natural light you can get you still need lamps so that you can work evenings and nights. Choose a table lamp that has a soft glow as well as a couple more for the corners.
  • Storage is very important in a home office or business. You should choose storage that is big enough and that takes the long term into consideration, but has enough flexibility for short term storage solutions as well. We allways recommend inhouse and external solutions such as self storage containers from Boylin's in Rotherham.
  • Your home office should blend in with the rest of your furniture.
  • You could add a few shelves for books and vases.
  • You need to create a space where you can have meetings with your visitors. Buy a small conference table and 3 or 4 chairs that you can place in the corner of the room.
  • Personalise your home office - it gives it character. Buy a few items that express who you are and what you like and make sure that they are prominently displayed.
These tips should help you create a great home office for your Rotherham home.

Could You Live In Self Storage Unit in Rotherham?

The short answer is yes, you can live in a self storage unit in Rotherham but it comes with a number of problems.

The first problem is that it is illegal - if the police find you living there you will potentially face fines or worse. Some people assume that this would only happen if the storage unit was in a facility but that is not the case. Even living in a self storage unit in Rotherham that is in a residential area, such as the back of a home, is not allowed by zoning laws and if your local authorities find you living there you will be reported to the police.

Self storage units in Rotherham are a fire hazard, which is another reason why it is not a good idea to live in one. You will not be able to cook in there because there is no way for moisture from boiling food to get out and of the unit and it will get very hot especially in the summer time. Self storage units also have no water or plumbing - you will have to find a different place to wash or shower and use the bathroom.

Keep in mind that if you have children and you decide to live in a self storage unit in Rotherham with them you could potentially lose them to the 'system' if you are discovered by the authorities.

That said, there are many people who live in self storage units because they don't have a choice.
Since the economic downturn many people lost their homes and since they had nowhere else to go they rented out units that they sleep in at night.

There are charities that have been set up to help such individuals so if you or anyone you know is homeless and sleeping in a self storage unit you should find assistance from one of them - they will help and they can help those individuals find alternative housing.

There are some counties in Asia where self storage units are combined to create great living spaces.
These, however, have water and plumbing and come with a small kitchen area and a bedroom as well as a living room area. They are also insulated so that they are comfortable in extreme weather and they have air conditioning. This is obviously an expensive venture that cannot be afforded by the homeless, but if you find yourself thinking about it talk to the zoning authorities in your area before you get started on any such project.

Need Help Storing Your SORN Car in Sheffield?

Your SORN car is important - you want to hang on to it until you can get a high resale value, or you may even want to pass it down to someone in the family.

Storing it, however, can prove to be a challenge - you use your garage for your everyday car and you may not have enough room in there for 2 cars.

Storing it on the driveway is out of the question since it will affect its value.

One good option is to rent a self storage container from Boylin's Self Store in Sheffield for it. Many people are turning to self storage containers in Sheffield as a reliable form of storage once they run out of space in their homes or businesses.

Your SORN car is expensive so you should not go with the first self storage container facility that you come across. You should make sure that the facility is highly secure - the best ones have 24 hour CCTV surveillance as well as access barriers on all self storage containers, allowing only you to access your car as do ours at all Boylin's Self Stores.

Find out whether there is an employee at the facility during the day and a night guard - it deters intruders.

Make sure that you choose a self storage facility in Sheffield that has weatherproof containers. If you store your car in just any container condensation will form and car parts will start to rust. These can be hard or even impossible to replace on a SORN car. There are, however, facilities that invest in slef storage containers that keep cars in good condition regardless of weather as do all ours. The self storage containers should be cleaned from top to bottom before you put your car in it - you don't want to take any chances.

Many container self storage facilities operate with stacked containers, while this may be okay when you are storing small items they may not be such a good idea when you are storing a car - driving it in or out alongside a ramp is an unnecessary risk and inconvenience.

Instead, find a Self Store facility like ours in Sheffield that has all self storage containers at ground level and enough room so that you can drive your car right in or out. All ours are on ground level.

Find out how long for you are able to rent the space for - some facilities only do short term rentals, while there are others that are happy to provide storage for as long as is required as do we.

Lastly, make sure that you service and test your car from time to time - your insurance company will want to know whether it works as it should, and regular testing also keeps everything in good order.
