If you are running behind in your bills and you have a spare room in your home one way you can make a bit more each week or month is to rent it out.
The problem, however, is that most people use the spare room in the home for storage.
That is more or less a waste of space because there is another storage option that works even better – a self storage container in Leeds.
Using a self storage storage container in Leeds will mean that you don’t have to part with your possessions – they will be safe and you will be able to get in a new lodger any time you like.
It may sound complicated but the process is very simple.
Start by identifying a self storage Leeds facility that you can work with – more on this later.
Once you have the self storage container the next thing is to sort everything – you want to get rid of items that you don’t need and keep the ones that you do.
Go around the room and identify items that you haven’t used for a while, and that are not precious to you.
You can sell these in a garage sale to pay for some of your self storage costs, or you can donate them to a charity of your choice.
The next step is to box everything up.
Buy sturdy boxes of different sizes and if there are any precious items make sure that they are securely wrapped in newspaper and bubble wrap. Tape each box at the top and bottom and then label it with whatever it contains – it makes for easy retrieval.
Next is to find a vehicle to transport the boxes to the self storage facility in Leeds.
It is important that you buy a strong lock for your container – although some facilities provide the locks there are some that don’t and you don’t want to take any risks.
As for choosing a self storage Leeds facility, it is important that you choose one that has a reputation for safety – strong lock or not you need to know that your items will be safe for however long you need them in self storage.
The self store facility should have 24 hour CCTV to monitor who comes and goes and they should also have an employee present to guide and help clients.
They have an excellent self store container facility in Leeds that is safe at all times and their containers are all weather proof and on ground level for easy access around the clock and year.
