Christmas is always a time for rejoicing but let’s not kid ourselves; we need self-storage to make our lives easier. Families big and small know the troubles of hiding gifts, storing decorations and even moving the home around for guests staying over.

This blog will be your guide to navigating Christmas with handy storage tips and outlining how a self-storage unit could be your saving grace.

Self-Storing Your Christmas Decorations

For many years, the go-to for storing Christmas decorations has been to shove them in the garage or attic. Avoid the allergy-ridden fears of your ornaments gathering dust with a self-storage unit! With most facilities offering daily access, you can come to grab or drop off decorations as you please.

You can undertake a few tips to ensure security when storing your decorations. For example, use egg cartons to store the large ornaments and baubles. This will give them an added layer of protection as they could smash if crowded in a large box.

Finally, let’s not forget the Christmas lights. The bane of everyone’s existence during December. Save your time by winding the lights up on a clothes hanger – this will allow you to unwind them without losing your patience. SafeGuard Storage offers an extensive range of units, big or small. Perfect for storing seasonal goods and precious items and heirlooms.

Use Your Storage Unit as Santa’s Workshop

Are you struggling to find that secret spot away from the kids to wrap presents? Well, a self-storage unit is your ticket to secrecy. These units make the perfect all-around solution for Christmas present wrapping and storage.

Sadly, Christmas time can be when burglaries and theft can increase. Storing your wrapped presents in a storage facility will protect them from the worst-case scenario. A storage facility with round-the-clock security and CCTV will give you all the comfort in the world.

Also, let’s not forget that some kids can get very curious during Christmas. What better way to eliminate the questions than keeping the gifts out of the house until the special day. Self-storage is the perfect solution for keeping stress levels low and aligned for the entire holiday period.

Family Coming To Stay For a Few Weeks?

Christmas is a time for reconnection. Particularly in this year of COVID hardship, gathering and coming together is more important than ever. If you need to clear out a room for guests, a self-storage unit will be your best friend.

End-of-Year House Cleaning

Once the festivities are over, many families like to do an annual clean over the summer. This is the ideal situation to use a self-storage unit further. Families coming over from all across the country or world can mean you need to prepare furniture or appliances – once they’ve left, you’re going to need somewhere to store these items.

Several family-fun items and equipment are a great option to keep in storage until Christmas. Kayaks, jet skis, inflatables, tents, cricket sets, and so much more. Save room around your house by keeping the outdoor items sheltered away from winter.

These annual cleans don’t have to be a permanent solution to stuffing things away – it can be a temporary fix. Thanks to around-the-clock access to self-storage facilities, you’ll be free to come as you please. The beauty of owning many items is that you have an endless selection of decorations and features for your home.
