Clutter is insidious — it creeps in over time and before you know it you don’t have enough space to store everything and it’s difficult to find anything. Decluttering may be hard work, but it’s liberating and can even be therapeutic (at least, if you follow Marie Kondo’s advice).

The trouble most people have with the task of decluttering is that they don’t want to get rid of belongings that might prove useful one day. The idea of giving away, selling or throwing out things you own can be too difficult to face.

Self storage can help you to declutter without the pain of parting with possessions that you like and may need to use again one day.

Declutter with Safestore

You can put almost anything into a clean, dry, secure self storage unit for as long as you like and you can purchase packaging/protectors to help protect your things.

For example:
  • If your wardrobes are overflowing, consider using self storage to store out-of-season clothing until you next need it.
  • Christmas decorations can take up a huge amount of space in your home and you only use them for perhaps four weeks a year. Store them with us and free up some space.
  • Camping and sports equipment are only needed occasionally, and perhaps not at all over the winter months. Store them with us and take them out whenever you need to use them.
  • If your bookshelves are overflowing but the idea of getting rid of your favourites is unbearable, consider storing some with us. You can always swap them out whenever you feel like it.
  • If you'd like to reclaim your spare room and turn it into a more useful space.
