Christmas tree in lounge by fire place

Getting ready for Christmas with the help of self storage

Christmas is right around the corner, and after last year’s disappointment it seems fair to say that we all want it to be extra special this year. 

We want the Christmas tree (a real one obviously) to be up and the decks to be hung around the house as soon as possible. But all this decorating can make the house feel a little crowded. And we don’t even want to think about how chaotic it can feel once all those presents are opened and the guests have arrived. 

So why not do a little decluttering now and let Hogleaze Storage help you out this festive period. 

Create an away from home wine cellar with our wine storage

The kitchen is crammed with all that delicious festive food. So, where do you store the Christmas drinks? 

You may not have a dedicated wine cellar in the house, but why not use one of our units for wine storage, and have an away from home, festive period wine cellar. 

Your alcohol will be safe in our Dorchester self storage units or our Weymouth self storage units,  thanks to our exceptional security features, and consistent temperatures. 

Our Dorchester site is open 24/7 meaning you can pop over to pick up another bottle, or two, whenever you like. 

Pro tip: if you are busting out those additional wine glasses for your guests but don’t have much space for them, why not try hanging a wire stemware rack below overhead cabinets. 

Where is the Christmas tree going to go?

A big question asked in most homes is “where are we going to put the christmas tree?”

It can’t go there because the coffee table is in the way, or the footstool, or the pile of the kids toys. Sometimes a little bit of rearranging is necessary, but even then things don’t always fit.

Our Dorset storage units might be the perfect answer. Our small storage units go up to 25 Sq Ft and would be great to store the coffee table, or a few of those toys that probably won’t get a look in once the christmas presents have been unwrapped.

Alternatively, if you are looking to store a slightly larger piece of furniture, so that your christmas tree can take pride of place, we have larger furniture storage units, which can go up to 190 Sq Ft at both our Dorchester and Weymouth storage facilities.

Get that spare room guest ready

We know, it is so easy to just think “oh this can just go in the spare room while I figure out what to do with it”. Then we forget about it and before we know it the room is filled with random things and there is no chance that anyone can sleep on the bed.

Maybe it is time to go through all of those things, on the other hand there are far more important things to get sorted before Christmas.

Our medium self storage units are suitable for storing a wide range of your belongings, whether that be sports equipment left over from the active summer you have had, or your holiday wardrobe that is yet to be put away.

Pro tip: instead of thinking of this as a mammoth task, try spending just 20 minutes a day clearing it out, that way it will feel more manageable and less overwhelming.

Interested in getting organised with us?

Our Dorchester self storage site and Weymouth self storage site could be the simple answer to help you have your extra special Christmas.

Our small and medium size self storage units are a great solution to temporarily store furniture that has been replaced by the Christmas tree, or clutter that has been hiding in that spare room.

For Weymouth self-storage call our Weymouth team on 01305 830000, and for Dorchester self storage call our Dorchester team on 01305 889777. If you are wanting vehicle storage, please call our Dorchester branch on 01305 889777.

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I would recommend this facility.

Have you seen some of our other articles?

Christmas definitely means that summer is over, so why not check out our article on packing away your summer belongings.

This time of year can really make us reflect on how much stuff we have in our homes, read our article on the telltale signs that you need a storage unit to find out if one of our self storage units could help you.

Hogleaze provides excellent facilities and service

We are emailing you to inform you that we have sold our motorhome and will no longer require the pitch. Should we buy another van, we will of course come back if you have availability.

You provide excellent facilities and service.

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
