Self Storage For Hoarders In Burton On Trent
Over the past few weeks I’ve been intrigued watching the new TV series Obsessive compulsive cleaners on channel 4. Not only does it make me realise how clean my house actually is compared to some of the atrocious homes on there, but it also gives me the motivation and mind set to get up and give my kitchen, bathroom etc a good old clean, especially with bleach!
I’d love the job of going into someone’s house that collects absolutely everything and making it look like a different house at the end of it! Most of this comes down to de-cluttering or having a massive clear out as some would say. It is however easier said than done when you’re in the position of that home owner that is otherwise known as a hoarder!
Our self storage facility in Burton on Trent offers the perfect solution for many people who may well be in this situation or just in fact an epic collector.
For me the most annoying thing about watching this programme isn’t when they make them clear their houses but how that actually happens.
The amount of money’s worth of stuff that gets throw away is painful for me to watch let alone the poor person that been collecting it for all those years!
So here’s my thought on this – when clearing out a house which is rammed to the brim, make 4 piles which should include:
1. Keep (small pile though)
2. Throw away (stuff that you couldn’t give away)
3. Charity shop (items that you don’t want but will be wanted by others)
4. Self Storage (to sort through and store whilst waiting for buyers)
This way you get to keep the most important possessions in your home, you will be helping the local charity shops and organisations by donating, all the junk will be cleared via skip and no longer collecting dust and most importantly all the valuable items (sometimes thousands of pounds worth) can be kept in a secure unit and out of your hair whilst waiting for potential buyers.
MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL YOU’RE HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT!
All of the units at premier Self storage are fully alarmed and connected to the police. Bringing your items here will give you that much needed time and space to sort through and valuate them. Once you become a self storage client you will also have full 24 hour access 7 days a week to your unit which means you are not just restricted to entering your room within office hours which really helps people that work during the week.
