Holidays Create Need for Additional Space and Storage at Home

From unexpected guests, to "couldn't resist" purchases, the holidays can create a crowded situation in your home. Make room with a mobile storage container and leave the rest to Zippy Shell so you can relax and enjoy this holiday season.

Washington, D.C. (I-Newswire) December 13, 2012 - For many, the holidays are a season of excess. Overeating, visiting family members, travelling great distances, installing large-scale decorations, outdoor activities scheduled during school breaks and of course, gift giving and receiving. It's fun, but it can create chaos in your house.

Zippy Shell USA, a national mobile self storage franchisor, says that a little planning and extra space can go a long way to creating peace and harmony.

Holiday Decorations Crowd Your Space

Unless one is used to having an 8-10 foot pine tree in their living room, the addition of a Christmas tree to a home's decor forces many into creative furniture positioning. So what if the couch blocks the entrance to the den, right? Zippy Shell suggests that before you start moving heavy furniture all over the house, you consider having a mobile storage container, or "shell" as they call them, delivered to your home. Load all excess furniture into the shell. It will be taken away, out of sight and out of the way, until you need it returned in January.

College Break Forces Room Cleaning

An empty or unused room in a house seems to attract all the "stuff" that no one really knows what to do with, which is fine until the student comes home for the holiday and wants the room back. Suddenly, the excess items have no place in the home. It is then that a self storage container becomes quite handy. Instead of cramming the items into already-full storage areas in the home, items can be placed in a shell, taken away and brought back whenever needed. "We find that these items aren't needed as people originally think," says Phillips, "so, they wind up storing them with us far beyond the college break."

The Family Invasion

The holidays are a time for family visits. Extra people create a situation where all available rooms are used as accommodations. The den, the craft room, and the basement, all become bedrooms with air mattress, cots and sleeping bags. "But many just have just too much stuff to provide an adequate space for overnight visitors," says Phillips. Zippy Shell suggests that before making hotel reservations, people consider storing furniture, boxes and other items so that they can welcome their visitors. "Why turn your visitors away during this giving time of year? Put your items in storage with us and don't worry about it. Once your family and friends are gone, Zippy Shell will bring your items back!"

Hit the Slopes...But What About Those Beach Chairs?

The kids are coming home for the holidays. And that means the annual family ski trip. It's time to bring out the winter clothes, skis, boots, poles and other necessary items for this venture. That creates clutter which is multiplied by the preponderance of summer equipment still laying about the house...beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, beach umbrellas, surfboards and more. The annual trek up and down the basement or attic steps begins. An easier solution would be to have a storage container, but that means loading up a moving truck, unloading it at the site, loading it with the winter gear and then unloading it at home. Mobile self storage cuts that in half, making it much easier and more convenient. How does it work? A storage container arrives at your home; you load it with the summer gear... when winter is over, the container is brought back so you can grab those fair-weather items and send your winter gear off to storage.

A storage container can lessen your stress this season and be the difference between you being a Grinch or as full of the holiday season as Old St. Nick himself.
