Christmas Time – Hide The Presents!

November 26, 2018 by Andrew Kirkham

At the time of writing this blog, there is just 29 days to Christmas and it is around this time of year that certain kind of savvy storage customer appears – the one that wants to hide their presents and gifts!

A storage unit has become one of the best ways to hold those special items, whether it is of an awkward size or cannot be wrapped up neatly and needs to be hidden until the 25th. The storage unit can give you the ultimate peace of mind for almost anything as everything can be kept secure until needed with the knowledge that only you have the access code and key to the unit. Classic examples are children bikes, a special furniture item and items that are unusually large that would be easily identified if found!

Often these items are ordered and delivered online now and one of the benefits of a storage unit at Kennards Self storage is the Parcel drop off and pick up service available at any site. This allows you to use the physical address of the storage centre for the courier delivery and the teams will text you when the item has been delivered so you can drop down and put it in your existing storage unit or you commence your rental on courier delivery date – renting a storage unit is very flexible with no minimum rental period needed and while rental is charged monthly in advance, we always pro rata a refund back for the time not used so this is a very cost effective option to consider.

Remember storage units start from the smallest one cubic meter locker right up to the standard 18 metres square typical car like garage or bigger for that extra special gift, or even larger, so I would be surprised if there is not a storage unit available for any gift idea.

So next time you are out Christmas shopping or online and think, I would love to get that for someone however where do I hide it, have no worries, store it at Kennards Self Storage.
