2023 is just around the corner, and, for many of us, that means making a New Year’s Resolution. While we can’t help you with things like quitting smoking or losing weight, if you’re looking to start a new business, take your side hustle to the next level, or declutter your home or office, the Weston Center Business Hub might be just the thing for you.
In this article, we’ll look at four popular New Year’s Resolutions that can be enhanced with a bespoke storage solution:
Renovating or redecorating your home
With interest rates at a record high and the housing market in decline, there’s never been a worse time to move house. However, the flipside of that is that there’s never been a better time to make the most of the home you currently own. Whether you want to make some major changes or just give everywhere a new lease of life with some fresh paint and wallpaper, we can help.
Instead of moving your belongings from room to room as you do up your property, why not lease a personal storage unit? You can put everything from a given room into storage while you handle any repairs, renovations, redecorating, or upgrades without filling up the rest of the house. Once one room is done, you can pick up your items and move on to the next. It’s a great way to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the size of the project, and all your items will be safe and secure while you do so.
Capitalise on your side hustle
Many of us have a side hustle—something that we do in our spare time to earn a little extra cash. Whether you’re making and selling handmade items on Etsy, buying used clothes to resell on Vinted, or buying wholesale to sell on eBay, now is the time to take things to the next level. Once you've had a little success and some good feedback from your customers, you’ll find yourself more in demand, but you can’t do it all from your home office or garage. With a storage unit, you can build up a greater supply of stock ready for sale and dispatch. Having the space gives you the opportunity to buy in volume and benefit from bulk discounts, lowering your overhead per item. Not only that, but you can set up space for packing and labelling your goods, freeing up much needed room at home.
Start a hobby
While some hobbies don’t need much room, others require space that you might not have at home. Maybe you’ve decided to put together a local sports team and need somewhere to store kits and equipment. Perhaps you’re starting an amateur dramatic troupe but have nowhere to keep scenery and outfits. Maybe you want to take up canoeing, but... you get the idea. If your home isn’t big enough to accommodate your latest passion, then a personal storage unit is just the thing for you.
Start a new business
This is the big one. If you’ve ever had a dream of going solo, a new year is a great time to try it. In addition to commercial storage units for stock and supplies, we also have trade units available for setting up equipment and machinery or office units for more administrative-type work. With competitive rates and flexible contracts, there’s no safer way to take the plunge and see what you’re capable of.
