Many people love to collect toys, figures, wine, shoes/sneakers or even books. Some people will also go the extra mile to find that one piece missing to complete the whole collection. Some would even spend a fortune on their toy collection. However, as much as these collectors love to collect and expand their collections, they might face the issue of lack of space at home.
To resolve this space limitation issue, one solution that commonly gets overlooked is the option of storing in a self-storage facility. Here are three benefits you can enjoy when using a self-storage for your precious collection.
Extra space to grow your personal collection
By renting a self-storage, you will be able to expand your personal collection to your heart’s content. With the flexibility to upsize your storage unit at any time, you can choose to rent a storage unit based on your current needs and upsize at a later time when needed. This way, it will be a cost-effective storage solution as you will only be paying a storage rent based on the space you rented and not more.
Free up space in your home for other purposes
Most of us are either staying in a small home (it’s never big enough!) or in a shared living space. This is why the use of self-storage can also go beyond just using for our collection. If you need to store some seasonal items or items that your family no longer need, you can also rent a bigger storage unit to store all of these items. This way, we will be able to enjoy extra space at home.
Here’s a storage tip to maximise your current storage unit:
You can always purchase a shelf from Extra Space Asia’s Box Shop and place it in your storage unit. In this case, it will also be more organised, and you can further optimise the storage unit in terms of the width and height of the storage unit. With a shelf, you can also split the racks for either your personal collection use or for your family storage use.
24-Hour Access with your personal PIN Code
In Hong Kong, we will usually choose to rent a storage unit that is close to our home for convenience. As such, having a mini storage unit is like an extension of our home space. With Extra Space Asia, you can access your storage units 24 hours any time, any day you prefer, with your very own customised PIN code. Unlike other storage providers, which require you to purchase a storage access card, you will receive a complimentary PIN code when you rent a storage unit at Extra Space Asia.
By having a PIN code, it will also be more convenient as you no longer have to worry about losing your storage access card. Remembering your PIN is the only thing you need to access your storage unit.
