December is upon us and Christmas day is fast approaching. That means only one thing: behind the scenes, the elves are out, busy making plans and packing presents for Christmas!
Now these wise elves know a thing or two about getting ready for the big day. And they also understand just how handy self storage can be over the Christmas period, to help free up extra space at home or even in the workplace at this busy time of year.
So, if you are hoping to be ultra-organised this December, here is some Elf Advice on why people use self storage at Christmas and the magical way that self storage can help you, and even your business.
Santa’s Secret Storage Space for Christmas Presents
Self storage can be transformed into Santa’s Grotto, a secret (and safe) place to hide away those Christmas presents from prying eyes, ready for sleigh collection and distribution on 24th December. We all know, the larger the present, the more difficult this becomes.
Choose the size of storage room to suit your needs, for as long or little time as you require. They make an ideal place for the elves to do some secret wrapping and with a little GPS assistance, Santa knows exactly how and when to collect them! Plus, if you need us to, one of our Extra Room Christmas elves can even accept online orders on your behalf and put them safely in your room.
A Safe Place to Store Seasonal Business Stock
Christmas can be the busiest time of year for many retailers. Self storage is the perfect solution for storing seasonal stock, whether you trade from a shop or are an online retailer.
Creating extra space in stock rooms can really boost productivity and efficiencies, delivering greater customer satisfaction. Having goods stored in purpose-built facilities also means they are less prone to damage rather being stacked to the rafters, and a potential health and safety risk in the stock room.
Flexible terms mean your goods can stay in storage for as long, or as short, as you like, and you are not burdened with any long-term commitment. You also have the reassurance that your goods are being stored in safe and secure facilities with 24/7 security.
Extra Room Self Storage rooms are temperature and humidity controlled too, making them suitable for storing items such as clothes or electrical goods. Shelving can be provided if required. We will even accept deliveries on your behalf so you can concentrate on running your business.
Make Space for Grandma!
Now, when we say, ‘make space for Grandma’, we are certainly not inferring that you put her in self storage! Christmas is a time of year when many families come together and that means accommodating relatives and friends in the home. Yes, it can be a squeeze!
Using self storage to temporarily make space in a spare bedroom when guests come to stay can make life a lot easier, and a lot more comfortable for all concerned. Don’t forget to empty guest wardrobes and drawers so they can put clothes away, and you may even want to free your dining room of excess clutter.
We offer 20 different sizes of storage rooms from a locker or wardrobe size unit for storing boxes, to a double garage and beyond for furniture storage.
Storage for Christmas Decorations
Twelfth night soon comes around and it’s time to take down the Christmas decorations.
Why not consider self storage to safely store your Christmas decorations and any other seasonal items or things you don’t need every day?
Get organised and get some extra room in the new year for your home or workplace.
State-of-the-art ‘Santa-Cam’ for added Storage Security!
Tracking Santa on his North Pole journey may be one thing, but we also use our Santa-Cams to deter unwelcome guests!
Our customers’ security is something we take very seriously at Extra Room Self Storage. We have made a significant investment in the latest security systems, including around the clock CCTV surveillance which monitors the entire site – not just at Christmas, but 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day. Our intruder and smoke alarms are linked directly to the emergency services.
Ample Parking for Reindeer, Sleighs and Other Elf Transport
A very important aspect of our self storage service, for both business and personal users! Our self storage facilities have spacious free car parking onsite, as well as covered unloading and loading bays to protect against the snow!
There’s plenty of room for Father Christmas (and all his reindeer) to load presents into the sleigh and we’re certainly not short of elf parking. Being centrally located by the A5, makes us the ideal distribution centre for present delivery to Nuneaton, Tamworth, Hinckley and surrounding areas.
Last Minute requests for Christmas Self Storage
It is not always easy to plan ahead, so if you find yourself needing some extra storage space at short notice, there is usually ‘Room at the Inn’ at Extra Room Self Storage, even for last minute reservations.
With thousands of storage rooms in dozens of sizes, it really isn’t a problem. If you urgently need additional storage space please get in touch and we’ll be flexible for however long or shorter time you need to stay with us.
Self Storage isn’t just for Christmas!
So, a final piece of Elf Advice is to remember, “storage isn’t just for Christmas!”. Kick-off the new year with a resolution to give yourself some extra room in which to work and live. A great start to a happier and healthier new year.
