The ending of the Daylight saving time is an indication that Winter Is Here!

The vintage cars that we own are very sensitive to the changing atmosphere – they can begin to lose their charm in this cold weather; and storing recreational vehicles, like trailers, yachts, and canoes, in our garage can take up a lot of space and make it less accessible. This winter, you can consider renting out a seasonal storage unit, where –

  • You can securely store your vintage vehicles without worrying about them getting damaged in the cold.
  • You have flexible term conditions, that is, you can rent the unit on a monthly basis.
  • You can use the unit to store all forms of vehicles, along with their accessories.
  • You can store your vehicles at affordable rates.

So, if you are thinking about storing your vehicles, come over at Hanover Storage Inc. where you can access our seasonal storage units, and keep your vehicles safe affordably. Moreover, this winter we are also offering you outdoor trailer/ RV storage from October – April 15, 2020 at our Walkerton facility!

As a small business owner, you face a lot of stress during the initial setup process, operations and execution of business. One of the most crucial and early decision made by small business owners is deciding the storage method. Most people associate self-storage for personal use; moving, downsizing, but self-storage has so much more to offer:

Space

Not every business can afford a massive business site from the get go to allow for storage. Using a self unit storage can alleviate the problems of storing inventory and non-important documents, off site. Common businesses using self storage are contractors, restaurants, retail stores and realtors.

Cost

Did you know that self storage unit is 60% cheaper than commercial spaces? Self storage is perfect for businesses that are going through a transition phase like de-cluttering, but also trying to avoid the high cost of renting a commercial space for storage. At self storage facilities you are not paying additional costs to keep your items safe. As your business grows also, having access to cheaper space is great for your business.

Flexibility

Using a self-storage unit allows for more flexibility which is key to any emerging business. A good self storage provider will be willing to be flexible with you and the context of your business. For example, you might need more room on your business site to venture into seasonal trends. Hanover storage offers seasonal storage unit that allows your needs to be accommodated.

Security

Your business site might not be the most secure location for your assets and self storage becomes useful in this area. Security is important for anyone’s belongings and Hanover offers safe secure to store materials such as tools, documents, supplies and so much more. Small business owners are guaranteed safe keeping of their assets

Convenience

Having a secure local self unit storage, is more convenient that storing them at a warehouse that is not easily accessible. Business owners can find a self storage in a location nearby which can be reached anytime of the day

 

 

Recycling to de-clutter your home

One great way to maximize space in your home is consistent recycling. The process of recycling can be extremely overwhelming if done all at once. There’s a lot that can be recycled in every room, with the right guidance. Room by room, here are our favorite ways to make that extra space through recycle.

Bedroom

  • Recycling in the bedroom is the easiest to figure out. Start with old linens that no longer serve its purpose. Does your bedding still work or is it starting to feel old and shabby? Recycle or donate
  • With clothes, the “if you haven’t worn it in 12 months, you don’t need it” approach works best. Donate items that can still be worn and recycle anything that cant be donated.
  • Accessories and other items such as toys, games and books usually in the bedroom should be considered for recycling if no longer useful

 

Kitchen

  • Pay attention to smaller appliances that no longer function properly. Items like blender, coffee machine, hot plate, egg beater are better off recycled than attempting to repair.
  • If there are utensils you haven’t used in a year, donate. Pots that can not be used, such as pots without lids, can also be recycled.
  • In addition, to maintain a recycling standard be sure to have recycling bins in your kitchen. An organic bin for plastics, bottles to return for deposit refund and paper.

 

Bathroom

  • Recycling in the bathroom is all about creating storage space.
  • Items like shampoo, pill and medicine containers,body wash and mouthwash bottles should be recycled.
  • In addition old, unused personal care items such as electric toothbrush and dryers can be recycled.

Other household items, that can surprisingly be recycled include:

  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • CDs, DVDs and gaming discs
  • Eye glasses, dental toiletries, etc.

 

Recycling can be a rewarding task; giving you space you need while helping to protect the planet. For items that cannot be donated, recycled and you do want to keep? Consider a secure self storage unit.

Quick tips on making home look more spacious

You might have de-cluttered, moved furniture around and even utilized a self storage unit but still find it hard to achieve your desired space. There’s a limit to how much space we can create without compromising our convenience. This is where these tips come in.

One easy way to give a “space” feel to your room is making use of furniture, such as arm chairs and sofas, that are raised on legs. Raised furniture allows for easier movement of light into the room. This effectively creates an illusion of having more space.

The use of transparent furniture like glass tables and plastic chairs, is another great way to make your room look spacious. Furniture pieces that are transparent allows you to see the walls and floor, giving the illusion of more space than there actually is. Where as, opaque furniture, completely blocks off space from view, giving your room the illusion of being smaller than it actually is.living room space with yellow arm chair and glass table

 

When buying curtains, be sure to get sheer curtains that can help elongate your room. Sheer curtains block minimal light, allowing the room to look and feel more open. Avoid the curtains touching the floor, so you utilize all the length and height of the room.

If you are a book lover, floor-to-ceiling bookcase is the best choice for your living space. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases gives an illusion of a higher ceiling. The symmetry and of the bookcase draws the eye upwards systematically, emphasizing the height of your ceiling.
