Storing up your New Year’s Resolutions

Written by on December 22, 2017

So, Christmas is done for another year – hope it was a good one? Sure there’s still plenty of leftover turkey and Quality Street to keep you feeling festive for a few more days!

But now our thoughts start to turn towards the next big event – new year! And we all know what that means – resolutions! Apparently last year the top three resolutions were to lose weight, exercise more and eat more healthily. In fact, most of the top 10 involved becoming healthier, or taking on a new challenge, or getting a better balance in life. Good stuff!

However, are we the only ones who start the new year with a list of jobs to do in the house? Whether it’s planning a move, getting serious about that extension or kitchen you’ve been talking about, or even just having a good old clear out to make space for the million and one new things you need to find a home for thanks to Santa’s generosity, the turning of the calendar into January seems to bring it all into focus and make you want to set a plan!

If your resolutions are of the home improvement variety, we are on hand to offer any advice you might need on how self storage can help you achieve your goals! Looking at doing some work and need to empty a room? Why not hire a self storage unit at one of our centres in Harrogate, Leeds or Wakefield, and move your furniture into there so you’re not worrying about anything getting dirty or damaged? Contracts can start from as little as £6 a week, and for a minimum of just six weeks. You can gain access as and when you need it, and your belongings are kept safe and secure – and out of your way!

Maybe you’re going to treat yourself in the January sale to a new bed or sofa or dining table. Or all of them! And perhaps your old items are going to be sold, or be given to someone else, who isn’t quite ready for them. Why not self store?

Or perhaps you’re planning a move in 2018? Why not get in touch to find out more about the removals and packings services we can offer – and don’t forget, self storage can be your best friend when you’re trying to declutter ahead of putting your house on the market. Everyone loves the minimalist look to make your rooms look huge – plus it helps massively with keeping on top of the cleaning for all those viewings.

Maybe you’re a business owner and your office is bursting at the seams – you’re not sure you can have a positive start to 2018 surrounded by all that mess! We can provide both business self storage and also archiving and document management services, so you can hand us all your paperwork to keep safe and secure, but you can still gain access as and when you need it. And don’t forget we can offer shredding services to quickly and easily clear your desk of any unwanted paperwork which needs to be confidentially destroyed.

Our Christmas opening hours for our Wakefield, Leeds and Harrogate self storage centres can be found here – and of course we’re back to normal from the 2nd January. We look forward to helping you make your 2018 dreams a reality!


Great service from start to finish. From signing up to the refund of the deposit at the end. We will certainly recommend and use again if needed. The offer we got initially was great and when we cancelled as we no longer needed it, we were offered a little more time too. very good indeed.

Great service from the storage department. Helped me find the right unit and it was a smooth transaction. Would recommend them highly

Would have liked more information in print regarding the actual pricing structure particularly all the 'added' extras - insurance, cleaning, deposit, padlock - rather than just the price quoted on-line! Also details regarding access times - as there seems to be an additional charge for longer / 24-hour access, only standard office opening hours covered by the charge.

Staff very pleasant and helpful!
