Self storage is a great option for people who need some breathing space from their possessions. If you decide to travel, need to look for a new home some distance away, or just have too much stuff to fit into your current accommodation, self storage gives you options and freedom to do exactly what you need to without calling in a heap of favours from friends and relatives. Better to find a Sheffield Storage Company that can help you save money. So here are a few tips to get you started.
When you decide to rent a self-storage container from a Sheffield Storage Company, there are a number of ways you can save money. Read on for some top money saving tips.
If you are thinking of storing it, ask yourself, do you really need it?
Although it takes time, it does pay to declutter your stuff before you rent a storage unit. You are charged for the space you take up, so the smaller the unit you rent, the more you will save. Work out if it would be cheaper to just buy a new sofa and chairs when you need your furniture again, rather than potentially pay more in storage costs than a new suite would cost.
You can get rid of furniture you do not want by donating it to local authority furniture banks, or by putting it on Free-cycle. Do this with any furniture that you think won’t fit into your new place, or that you are happy to replace in the future.
The AK Sheffield Storage Company Saving You money with just simple advice
Sort through your drawers and throw away papers that you don’t need. Often those ‘important documents’ will be online, so you can just print them off in the future when you need them. By throwing away all the detritus that you have accumulated, you can potentially save yourself a lot of money in storage costs.
Sort things into easily stackable boxes and pile them high inside your container. Just throwing everything into a bin liner is the worst thing you can do.
Think carefully about how you pack, and put large items of furniture in first. Make use of the ‘dead space’ that can be created when doing this by stuffing gaps with smaller boxes, cushions or curtains. You will be amazed how much a storage unit can accommodate using this technique.
