New Year is an excellent time to take stock of your life, figure out what’s important and maybe sort out a bit of clutter.
You might have a loft full of classic motoring, yacht or railway magazines, or a spare room packed to the ceiling with a selection of vintage clothing, family heirlooms, unused furniture etc. If you’re struggling to walk past the boxes of stuff piled up in the hallway as the festive season draws to a close, then perhaps it’s time to think about storing some of it away.
London is one of the busiest cities in the world, so if you live and work in the capital, then you’ll know that having a serious de-clutter once in a while is a good idea. We have three storage units located in Wandsworth, Camden and Southwark, all ready to take care of your extra items.
Here’s the ABC Selfstore top three New Year Resolutions to hep with decluttering in 2012:
- Carefully pack all those unused electrical gadgets, like computers, games consoles, phones, monitors, plus associated chargers units and cables. You might want them again one day, or perhaps their value as collectors’ items in the future makes them worth hanging onto? Either way, it’s worth boxing them up – with the instructions if you still have them – and storing them somewhere secure.
- Give your London pad a makeover. Create some extra space by stashing away those old clothes, bulky sports or gym equipment? Perhaps even place a few pieces of furniture in storage so that there’s more room to have a few friends over? Space in an apartment or flat in London can be tight, so free yourself – store that clutter!
- Sort out your own `time capsule.’ So much of our lives is chronicled in old photographs, CDs, USBs and portable hard drives full of digital data. What would happen if your precious photos, personal papers, old exam certificates and more was lost? It’s worth thinking about packing valuable personal records up and storing it under lock and key. ABC Selfstore can provide a lockable, secure unit, at a very competitive cost – we promise to match any written quote.
So whenever you’re ready to make those 2012 Resolutions reality, just give us a call, or email. ABC would love to help. In the meantime, have a fantastic New Year!
