Not Your Average Storage Facility!

Ever wanted your storage company to resemble a day spa? At Storage King, we might not give you massages and saunas but we are committed to going the extra mile to help you in anyway possible. It’s 2017 and we’ve decided everyone could do with a little more kindness in their lives. That’s why we like to think of ourselves of the kings of storage, moving and more. What we’re saying is that we care. We’re ready to go the extra step. So open your hearts and let in the love.
When you choose Storage King as your storage provider, we want you to know that hugs are included in our prices too. We understand how tough it can be moving house, putting old memories and keepsakes in boxes in 40-degree heat. So if you need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to chew, we’re here! If you’re feeling drained and mildly heat stroked, come lie down! We’ll put a fresh, cold towel on your forehead and find you an iced coffee in no time flat. Heck, we’ll even provide rash cream for those who suffer dust allergies! If you choose the right person they might even apply it for you too.
At Storage King, we want you to think of us as that neighbour who brings you carrot cake when you’re trying to make carrot cake yourself except you have run out of sugar. We appreciate you choosing us as your storage provider and we want to give something back. After all, it’s you who gives us a reason to get out of bed in the morning. So, tell your friends. Tell your family. We can’t wait to see you soon. And if you ask really nicely we’ll see about getting some saunas installed on site as well.

Temporary Storage Is A Renovators Dream

Redesigning a home can be an incredibly rewarding experience. However, when completing large construction jobs that require changing the walls and floors of a home, temporary storage can be a renovator’s dream. No one likes working in cramped spaces, and damaging furniture and personal belongings is even worse. Home improvement is stressful enough, so why make it harder for yourself?
We can see it now. You’re painting the living room roof and your grandmother’s fine china, while covered, is at risk of being knocked over. Or perhaps you’re worried about the art you acquired from your last visit to Spain being damaged. Maybe you’ve had a rough month and you have some general security issues about the strangers in your house and what to do about your valuables. Even if you’re doing all the renovations yourself – which is challenging and hard enough! – finding the space for tools, materials and other items can seem overwhelming. Whatever the reason, take the stress out of your day and focus on making your home your castle with temporary storage.
Regardless of the size or timeframe of your renovation job, temporary storage can assist in managing the process from beginning to the end, with facilities to suit every need. After you’ve experienced the ease and benefits of temporary storage, you’ll wonder why you didn’t use it earlier!

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!
