03 Feb Avoid Clutter with Storage Containers
Storage Containers Offer a Remedy for Clutter in Your Home
Despite the difficulties posed by lockdown, most South Africans who celebrated Christmas will have dutifully removed their decorations on or before 12th Night. In the process, many will have done their level best to squeeze these, together with the innumerable other items they use only on rare occasions, into whichever nooks and crannies still have sufficient space to accommodate them. That said, some of those who have become impatient with clutter in their homes now choose to consign their baubles and garlands to storage containers.
Often, without even realising it, we can allow ourselves to become almost overwhelmed by the sheer volume of our possessions. We live in an age of rampant consumerism, and the temptation to buy is ever-present, fuelled by the advertising media and a desire to be in vogue. There is certainly no shame in buying a kayak, a jet ski, scuba gear or an extra bed or two for when college friends come to visit. However, finding the space to stow these items until you need them can pose problems that only storage containers can solve.
The garage is intended as a safe haven for the family car, an option that, sadly, has become increasingly necessary in recent years. Unfortunately, many vehicle owners must now leave theirs standing in their driveway where it is exposed to the elements and at risk from opportunistic thieves. Instead, their garages are packed to the brim with smaller but valuable items for which they have no other space. It would undoubtedly make more sense to allocate those infrequently used valuables to a secure storage container and, by doing so, free up the garage for its intended purpose.
If your need is for a permanent or sufficiently long-term solution, the best option may be to purchase a unit. The units are available in lengths of either 6 metres or 12 metres and are both durable and watertight. If you feel you need extra security, they can be fitted with an additional lock. Finally, if you decide to move to a new house at some stage, it is a relatively simple matter to arrange transport for storage containers, and you will not even need to unpack them.
In some cases, of course, you may only require the extra space temporarily. For example, you may need somewhere to keep some of your more valuable furniture safe for a month or two, while the builders are busy with renovations. To cater for such contingencies, it is often possible to rent a unit. Whether buying or renting, Absolute Containers can offer you a choice of top quality storage containers at highly competitive prices.
