More and more people earn some extra money through a sideline, and a lot of sidelines involve selling gift items, crafts and decorations for Christmas. Some people sell items they make themselves, while others retail stock they purchase from a supplier. But all of them need a place to keep this stock in the run-up to their prime sales time. And no one really wants to turn over their home to this, especially when are also trying to find space for the presents they will be giving.
Some people will need to order large amounts of their raw materials to make crafts such as Christmas wreath or ornaments, but can’t store all of it at home. A short-term storage solution that can hold some of the raw materials and completed product is ideal. That way, you can bring home just the supplies you can manage while still getting the advantage of the savings when you buy in bulk.
Finding temporary storage can solve the problem. It means your goods are in a safe space without cluttering up your home. But finding the right storage solution can be tricky. Not all storage units are equal: it’s key to find a unit that meets your real needs without costing a fortune. After all, the goal of a sideline is to turn a profit, so it’s important to find a temporary storage unit that is affordable and convenient. Consider the pros and cons of the options near you.
Some criteria are universal. Any storage unit should be secure and insured against fire and theft. Hired storage should offer real protection from the elements. Good value is important too. Beyond that, people have a wide range of needs. Even different crafters will have different requirements. Someone making small Christmas tree ornaments is not going to have the same storage needs as someone making Christmas wreaths or someone making larger wooden toys or furniture.
Size does matter when it comes to storage. What if you just have a box or two of jewellery you make and sell? If you live in a small house or apartment, even a box or two can make your living space uncomfortably crowded, but renting a whole storage unit isn’t affordable either. Short term storage companies such as Buska offer alternative solutions such as a storage by the box plan, which can be the ideal middle-ground for people who don’t need a whole unit. Instead of paying for a big unit, these plans allow you to pay per box. However, if you need more space, in addition to their storage by the box Buska also offers by the square foot or even wardrobe boxes rental, specifically for clothing.
In a city like Dublin, not everyone owns a car or drives, and for those who do, traffic is often a headache. While some might want storage they can personally access, others prefer to avoid going back and forth themselves. Buska will deliver storage boxes right to you and collect them when you’ve filled them up. We’ll take them to our secure storage facility, and you can let us know when you want your items delivered to you. The time you save not battling traffic is time you can spend making more crafts to sell or just relaxing and enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones.
