Decluttering Tips Before Christmas and New Year in Bath

Christmas is fast approaching, and you might be looking around your home, wondering where you’ll find extra space before the holidays start. Whether you’re hosting or joining a bubble with other families, there’s plenty of good reasons to get rid of things you no longer use. Is it too late to start organising your home and decluttering?

Even though Christmas is just around there corner, there’s still plenty of time to get things in shape for the festive season. One way you can do this is by renting a self storage unit from Thomas Firbank. You’ll be able to create lots of space so you can enjoy a more organised home. And we have the best storage facilities in Bath and Somerset, offering storage options to suit everyone’s budget and requirements. 

Getting the Most from Your Living Spaces this Festive Season –

For anyone who wants to spend Christmas day with their family, the government is providing a brief lifting of restrictions. An extension of your family bubble allows you to do this, which you can read more on here. You’ll need to stay up to date with any alerts, just in case this provision changes and a stricter lockdown takes its place.

Christmas is within touching distance, so you’ll need to be sharp if you want to organise and declutter before the holidays start. You can apply the three Rs – recycle, reuse, repurpose. And it’s possible to do this in an environmentally smart way as well. But you’ll have to act quickly to catch the local tip and also charity shops.

Thomas Firbank team can pass on tips because we do this for customers who no longer want certain items. Storage is the best option to create space in your home before Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It’s an affordable and easy process to initiate; all it takes is a phone call or email, and we’ll begin our assessment process. We can have you set-up with a storage unit, ready in time for the Christmas festivities.

Decluttering with Zero Time to Waste –

With Christmas fast approaching, you’re running out of time if you need to free up some space before Christmas day. Self storage is the best option for this task because you’re packing up boxes and removing them from your home. There’s no better way of tackling this, giving you more room to enjoy the festive season. But time isn’t on your side, so it’s time to act.

Create a timeline – you’ll need to get this done in a week or less to have everything ready by Christmas. So, get in touch with Thomas Firbank, rent a self storage unit and have a plan of action ready by the end of today. Then set some tasks to complete for each day.

Use a home inventory app – download one now and start getting used to its features. A good home inventory app can save you lots of time when you need to locate an item. It splits everything per room with images of each object, and there are plenty of free apps available.

Set room goals – have a plan for each room, possibly concentrating on one per day. Monday – declutter and pack up the spare room. Tuesday, it’s time to sort the loft and shed out, and so on. You’ll likely have work and family duties to work around, so don’t take any days off. Don’t put off something for tomorrow you can do today.

End bad hoarding habits – be brave, be bold, and prepare to get rid. If you’re guilty of being a hoarder, then it’s a good idea to get someone to save you from yourself. Check that you’re doing your due diligence by undertaking regular monthly decluttering to make sure you don’t regress into bad habits.

Open Up Space with Self Storage –

Self storage has a plethora of benefits, but the higher level of protection it provides is without question hard to match. Storage offers you unbeatable security measures and modern surveillance equipment at our branch. Nothing gets in or out without the green light from our staff, who all have vigilance training. You can have the assurance your possessions are in safe hands.

While our storage packages have set functions, there’s also room for flexibility if you have unique specifications. We’ll do whatever we can to accommodate your requirements, which we’ll discuss with you during an assessment meeting. There’s no minimum contract to worry about – it’s a store as you need to deal. We often find that people usually keep their unit after holidays because of convenience.

Thomas Firbank has the most extensive storage facilities in Bath, and we work with households and businesses from all over Somerset. Every week, we help people reclaim rooms in their home they haven’t had the use of in months, sometimes years. With a basic 100-sq-ft unit, you can empty the equivalent of a whole flat’s worth of items in less than one day. Now think about how much room this would create for the festive season.

Is Container Storage More Suitable for Longer Periods?

At Thomas Firbank, we always gauge each inquiry for storage on its own merits. That means we apply a thorough assessment process to make sure you receive the correct service. For people who need a long-term storage option, container storage tends to be more suitable. It’s the more affordable storage package with prices starting from £14 per week.

This is how our Container Storage service is set up. We bring the empty container to your house or workplace. Then we’ll go through a checklist to ensure everything is ready before we start loading. Our team will pack everything professionally & take an inventory of your belongings. Then we seal and transport your unit back to our secure warehouse.

Thomas Firbank has top-notch security measures in place, such as complete CCTV coverage and alarm systems. Nothing gets in or out of our depot without permission, and our staff have security and vigilance training. There’s no safer or more secure way to store your possessions than our container storage units.

Emergency Removal Services Available –

The Thomas Firbank team is well aware that a sudden change in circumstances can derail anyone. This is something a lot of businesses in Bath learned the hard way during the first lockdown. Many found it impossible to pay the rent, and emergency relocations were frequently happening. In this scenario, there’s no time to hesitate, and you have to organise a removal straight away.

Luckily, we have the capacity to accept last-minute relocations and will do everything in our power to accommodate you. The Thomas Firbank team will assess your requirements to see how urgent your situation is, which includes a free, no-obligation quote. Then we’ll discuss our range of removals options and any additional services.

The main thing to remember here is to contact us as soon as possible, even if you’re still working out a plan. We can arrange an emergency removals job within twenty-four hours, less if things are really urgent. Our removals and storage packages interlink to provide an overall seamless service, which is essential for last-minute relocations.

Other Tips on Staying Safe this Christmas –

If you’re planning on extending your family bubble, it’s crucial you understand the guidance. Additionally, it would help if you keep up with the latest updates and information on Covid-19, especially ones that are relevant to Bath and Somerset. Remember, you should only reshare information from credible sources that are factually correct. For practical advice on how to best avoid contracting the virus, you can check out the WHO and NHS websites.

Please keep up to date with advice on preventative measures, such as using face masks, hand sanitiser and soap. Social distancing is vital to preventing the spread of this coronavirus. You must try to keep a safe distance from other people if you have to leave your home. Furthermore, try and limit your outings to once a week and consider options for things like home deliveries.

Covid-19 transmits via respiratory droplets, often within a distance of six feet between people. This is why social distancing is so effective, in addition to wearing masks. However, there’s evidence to suggest it remains viable for many hours on surfaces as well. You should regularly clean surfaces and objects in your home, especially ones where multiple people come into contact with. Think along the lines of doorknobs, countertops, keyboards, toys, mobile phones, and bank cards.
