Benefits of a Self Storage Room to more efficient living
Have you noticed how your home has shrunk since you first moved into it? You nodded wisely when the estate agent described the “three generous bedrooms”, “room for a growing family” and “ample storage space”. He probably couldn’t have known that “exponential expansion” would have been the description of your future reality.
A PERFECT, IF IMPLAUSIBLE, SOLUTION
Whilst children, rightly, have complete faith in the Tooth Fairy, wouldn’t it be just as wonderful to be able to genuinely believe in a “Declutter Wizard”. One wave of his wand and everything would magically reduce in size and store itself neatly away until you needed it. Then it would magically reform and present itself for use. To be fair, even Mary Poppins would probably have trouble managing that!
MEANWHILE, IN THE REAL WORLD…
When travelling into Manchester have you ever noticed the big yellow building at the City Centre end of Ashton Old Road? It’s home to FLEXiSPACE.com and they are a company who provide storage solutions in the regrettable absence of our “wizard”.
They find that there are five key reasons why people rent one of their self-storage units. The first is where folk have simply run out of space. Perhaps what started off as a “spare room” has now happily been renamed “nursery”. Another key need is often temporary extra space whilst in the process of moving home (or, on a more permanent basis, when downsizing). It’s equally useful to temporarily clear out everything that the experts say make your home less likely to sell.
Occasionally people are going abroad for a period and like to make sure valuable pieces of furniture and treasured possessions are securely stored. It’s also a terrific temporary solution to protect items from stray hammers or paint stains when home improvement or redecoration projects are being undertaken.
Finally, if a teenager or two is off to university it can be a place to keep the mountain of stuff they have acquired over the years. Alternatively, you could try Les Dawson’s legendary solution of: “Sending them out for chips and moving house”.
SPACE – THE FINAL FRONTIER
Wouldn’t it be great to rediscover the wall you never thought you’d see again, or the cupboard where you can actually once more hang your coats?
So, if you are up to your ears in, well, whatever you are up to your ears in, isn’t it great to know there is such a convenient solution? www.flexispace.com or call 0161 274 4777
