The days are getting shorter and darker, it seems like that there’s not enough time in the day to do anything. But us at Blue Box Storage – Doncaster Self-Storage have put together a list on how you can prepare your home this Christmas/winter. It’s time to say goodbye to the Summer clothes you’ve been holding on to for months, don’t worry you can get them out again soon!
Self-Storage: Store Summer Items in
Most people have limited space, so their garage can only get them so far, as you’ll probably be storing a car too. Now that summer is over, you don’t want to leave your grill, parasol or patio furniture outside all winter; after all, the cold and wet weather is sure to damage your possessions and render them useless for next summer.
So, what’s a homeowner to do if they don’t want to throw anything away but don’t have space to store their summer items, well that’s where we come in…. It’s time to pop over to Blue Box to use one of our Self-Storage.
Always rely on Storage boxes, but make sure that your unused items are kept in good condition by wrapping them up safely and securely – our service team offers flexible terms from two weeks onwards and as long as you need, easy-to-access units, no reservation fees, alarms and 24-hour security.
It’s time to bring out the Winter Attire
Self-Storage will also help you if you’re simply looking to make some extra room in your room for the bulkier and heavier winter clothes and items such as, blankets or portable heaters. At Blue Box, we keep all your other items safe and sound at all times, and you won’t have to worry about the issues such as humidity and strange smells. Oh, and we also provide boxes that you could possibly need, as well as bubble wrap and tape.
Your Home needs to be Properly Insulated
The best way to keep the heat in, while still saving money on the electric bill is to have a good insulation. So, make sure you assess how you can best insulate your home before it gets too cold – as it is going to get even colder next week (December 2019).
Make All the Repairs that You Need
When your to-do list scares you, it can be very tempting to just procrastinate and leave some tasks for a later time. Repairs are usually one of these tasks – but it pays to make a few essential home checks. Look at your guttering for cracks and blockages to ensure that wet weather doesn’t lead to streams of water pouring down the side of your home and causing water damage. If you have one, get the chimney inspected and cleaned now before you set a winter fire roaring. And, when spring comes around again, you’ll be pleased you repaired the lawnmower or dealt with a bicycle that needs new wheels before you put them into storage.
