Five of the Most Common Reasons Why People Need to Use Self Storage
We all need self storage in our life at some point or another, they’re cheap, reliable, and most importantly, they’re safe. Not many of us have the luxury of being able to store all of our worldly belongings in our attics or basements, especially if you have a tendency for buying larger items that fill up space fast. Here are the five most common reasons that people use self storage, and why you should too.
Nothing says ‘emotional whirlwind’ quite like university move-in day for first-year students and their parents alike. While it may seem like a daunting, flustered process of heavy lifting and room organisation, there are a few things you can do in preparation for the big move to ensure everyone involved feels a little less agitated and overwhelmed throughout the whole process. After all, your move to university is supposed to be one of the most exciting times of your life; you don’t have to allow it to be clouded by stress.
Anyone at uni will testify just how annoying it is to lug your belongings half way across the country every time you go back home at the end of the year or when you’re moving between one of many student accommodations.
One great way to save yourself a lot of hassle is to place your belongings in student storage, where they’ll remain safe and sound until you need to pick them up again.
Whether you need to store your things for just a few days or even for a whole semester while on a year abroad, there are many reasonably priced options available to students.
The Freight Transport Association is a very special trade association for a number of reasons. Not only is it one of the largest associations, whichever way you may choose to measure it – number of members, number of employees, range of services etc. – but it is also special in that it takes care of such an important function necessary within almost every business operation, namely the need to deliver the goods to the customer as economically and efficiently as possible.
At Matthew James Removals we take great pride in our work. A recent relocation from a multi-million pound property in Kent necessitated a full export wrapping service for all furniture items being removed, which took our team 5 days to complete.
We only use the best quality wrapping materials available to us; the bubble wrap used to package these chairs has a tissue-paper lining that protects the varnished wood and leather from sweating and a tough, plastic coating to stop the bubble wrap from tearing.
At Matthew James Removals we believe in supporting and promoting our staff to become the best they possibly can be. Jack Brown joined our company in 2014 as a porter and van driver. It quickly became clear that Jack had just the right personality traits to become a truly dedicated Matthew James removal man and had a great deal more to offer than just van driving (although he was very good at that). In 2015 we invested in Jack’s future and funded his category C driving licence. That’s a licence to drive a rigid lorry of unlimited size, for those that were wondering. Jack passed his category C licence on the first attempt and has since proven to be a natural-born lorry driver, travelling the length and breadth of the UK as well as several European countries.
