Skeletons and more in the closet
Few of us seem to have enough space these days, especially if you’ve an interest or hobby that means having to store things at home. If you’re into stamp collecting or comics, lack of storage space may not be such an issue but if vintage clothing, models or garden gnomes are your thing, you may have to look elsewhere. Consider the four storage scenarios below.
Building for the future
You are planning on starting up a small business, buying and selling antique garden furniture. You already have a collection of old wrought iron chairs and tables, ornamental lights and other stuff, some of it fairly big. You need somewhere safe and secure to store it all while you’re building up stock. Renting a self storage unit could be the perfect answer, either in the medium to long term, or until you find permanent premises.
Makeover for mum
You want to surprise your mum and do something special to show her you appreciate all she’s done for you. First, you wait until she’s off somewhere for a long weekend – or you treat her to a holiday – and while she’s gone, you clear out the house and get everything put in self-storage for a few days, while you and the team get busy painting and decorating her house – job done. Now all you have to do is hope that she actually likes the changes you’ve made!
Making ends meet
You have some spare room in your central Manchester property that you’d like to rent out to make some extra money, but want to safeguard your antique or valuable furniture in the meantime. Putting precious items in damp-free storage where everything is insured and kept safe makes a lot of sense and, once your cash crisis is over, you can bring your things home again.
Skeletons and secrets
As long as it’s legal, you can store just about anything. People collect all sorts of unusual memorabilia, including skeletons, mannequins, wheelbarrows – you name it and someone is sure to collect it. If your partner doesn’t share your interest, however, or space is a problem, or you’re worried what the neighbours may think, then self-storage could provide the answer.
Whatever scenario you face, if space is an issue then it’s worth speaking to the friendly staff at www.flexispace.com in Manchester. They are less than half a mile from the city centre and are happy to discuss the range of storage options they offer, without obligation.
