4 Tips To Declutter Your Home In 2017

Every New Year we make resolutions to improve our lives. Some promise to go to the gym more, while others swear they will give up chocolate. Of course, one of the greatest and most achievable things we can do is to declutter our homes. We all accumulate items we don’t need or find hard to let go. Decluttering your home is one of the most rewarding and effective ways we know to mentally prepare for the New Year ahead. And while it may seem daunting, we have four helpful tips to get you started. So put some music on and get ready to clear away!

Make a room plan

As Mark Twain said, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.” So why not make a list of all the rooms in your home. A great place to start is usually where people visit the most while visiting your house, like the kitchen or bathroom.

Set Aside 30 Minutes A Day

We all live demanding lives. After dropping the kids at school, going to work, picking the kids up and returning home, the last thing we feel like doing is decluttering. When you do decide to declutter, don’t try to do it all at once! Setting aside 30 minutes everyday will allow you to see improvements in no time.

Store Seasonal or Excess Items

Placing some seasonal items in storage like winter blankets, clothes, Christmas lights, ornaments and all the rest will keep them out of the way until you need them next. You could also store some items that you may not want to throw and save for later; like a couch you love or extra pots and pans from the kitchen. Keeping them out of sight and out of your home will allow for extra room in the house and will help open the space in your living areas to make them look bigger!

Think about donating!

If your unwanted items are in good condition, reach out to a charity that resonates well with your values. By donating your clothes and household items, you can be sure that they will go to good use by supporting a cause you care about. As the saying goes, “one persons trash is another ones treasure”!

How to take the stress out of moving house!

Buying a new home can be one of the most exciting things we do. Perhaps the kids have left home or you're beginning a new job. You might even be moving to the beach and making that sea change you have been talking about for the past decade! Whatever the reason, purchasing a new home will undoubtedly change the course of your life and this is can be incredibly inspiring. However, while buying a new home can be thrilling, figuring out where to store your furniture while in-between houses can be a real headache. 
Check out our top 3 facts on how we can help take the stress out of moving house, especially over the holiday season.
Fortunately for you, Storage King is just around the corner. We know what an imposition it can be to ask those who love us the most to help us while we move. Whether it be family or friends, often times they simply don’t have the space in the their homes or the time in their days to assist in such a mammoth task!
Fact 1
It doesn’t matter if you want to store a bedside table for a couple of days or half the house for six months, storage can help take a load off your shoulders.  Our spaces begin at one square metre and only increase from there. In fact, we take great pride in our comprehensive range of storage sites because they have solutions to suit all needs and budgets, no matter what they are!
Fact 2
We want to work with you to ensure you have the smoothest transition possible. If you wake up one day and decide that a purple couch in storage is much more agreeable than the olive couch currently on the back deck, we understand! Life is unpredictable and chaotic, and we can cater to your needs while you find the right fit.
Fact 3
When you let Storage King help you with your storage needs, you trust your belongings to the best in the business. We value your stuff as much as you do and this is why our security measures are not only comprehensive, they’re second to none. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to rest each night knowing your belongings that you cherish the most are being looked after and cared for.

So instead of worrying your friends and family to help you with a move, drop into your local Storage King and we can discuss how we can make your move as simple as possible!

How Storage King Can Save You Time Waiting For Deliveries

If there is one thing Storage King prides itself on it’s our ability to work with clients, simplifying their operations, improving efficiency and reducing costs. Nowhere, in our experience, is this more noticeable than in the time lost while our clients wait for deliveries. At Storage King, we understand time management, which means we have a solution for you.

When a company has to guess the time their products will be delivered, or worse, when those deliveries don’t show up at all, those companies lose money. A major component of running a profitable, successful company involves the accurate and timely distribution of the products they are selling. This is why, at Storage King, we provide delivery notifications with receipt and dispatch of goods.

Clients have expressed on numerous occasions how grateful they are to work with a company that stays true to their word. They tell me that our trusted dispatch system has freed up workers to concentrate on alternative business opportunities, which has increased the profitability of the business. But even more than this, they tell me about the increased morale amongst the staff. And I understand that. Because who likes waiting on a company for a product that is never going to show up? No one.

When you choose Storage King, you are choosing the lead experts in the industry. We promise accurate delivery notifications so you and your staff can focus on the real business at hand.
