REDUCE OFFICE RENT AND INCREASE SPACE EFFICIENCY WITH A VIRTUAL CUPBOARD SPACE

Valet Self-Storage that comes to you provides a virtual cupboard space that is both convenient and commercially sensible for organizations that are looking to maximise their investment in office space.  With the off-site storage of items that do not contribute directly to revenue on a daily basis and are infrequently utilised, organisations can reduce their rental spend and improve the working environment for employees without sacrificing control over, or convenient access to, their items.

EXPENSIVE OFFICE SPACE

Hong Kong office space is some of the most expensive in the world.  For most Hong Kong organisations, it is the single biggest fixed monthly outgoing.  So it is to be expected that we want the office space we do rent to be productive.

INEFFICIENT USE OF AVAILABLE SPACE

BUT in Hong Kong it is not uncommon to find Grade A Office space filled with

o   Old office files that are seldom accessed

o   Marketing Materials, that are needed on mass occasionally – but purchased and stored in bulk

o   Marketing Merchandise, that are needed on mass occasionally – but purchased and stored in bulk

o   Stock Samples that are used at trade shows and seldom used between shows.

o   Trade show banners and stands that are used only at trade shows

When you look at how we make use of our office space, our rental costs are much higher than they need to be.  We should not have to pay premium office rental prices for office storage.  However for convenient and reliable access to our stuff – this is what we have indeed had to do.

STORAGE AS A SERVICE

With a professional Valet Storage Service provider that provides their service by the box or the item, the inconvenience traditionally associated with off-site storage is eradicated.  Businesses can use this to regain precious and expensive office space for their employees and other direct income earning resources and effectively reduce the cost to store their business items, while simultaneously improving the efficiency of their office space.

EXAMPLE USE CASES

Trade Show Exhibit Accessories

The banners and signs used at the trade show are absolutely necessary in order to get your message across effectively.  However, between shows – these items take up valuable space and can be cumbersome to move from the office to the next trade show.

With valet storage, your trade show accessories are stored off site and bought to you where and when you need them, and collected again.

Marketing Merchandise

We all have it.  The customer gifts with our brands clearly and prominently displayed.  These are great publicity, and most customers appreciate them.

However our suppliers usually require us to buy these items in bulk.  Meaning we need to purchase multiple boxes, and then find somewhere to store them.

With a Valet Storage partner, businesses have their Marketing Merchandise stored off-site - then have the quantity of marketing materials you require for you next event delivered directly to you WHEN and WHERE you want them – even internationally.

Once the inconvenience of off-site self-storage is taken out of the equation – then it starts to make perfect commercial sense for all types of organisations.  Big or small.

Seasonal Self-Storage tips that will de-stress you

Every season brings with it its own unique characteristics and dictates what we wear and what we need in our homes.  Whether it be decorations, clothing, heating or cooling appliances, or home maintenance needs – our seasons have a big impact on our lives. Yet the small environments that we are required to live-in in Hong Kong can have a limiting impact on how we embrace each season, and we can easily be left with a cluttered living environment.

Let’s face it – our apartments will never be big enough to store all the items – both essential and non-essential – that we want. 

With every new season we keep adding new items or clothes to our collection and increase the pressure on our already limited storage facilities.  We get faced with the dilemma of having to discard the stuff that we categorize as non-essential – even though we may still have a need or desire for the items that we are about to discard.  There is clearly a desire for additional storage space in Hong Kong – and this is where valet self-storage can be of great assistance to our lives in Hong Kong.  By following some simple storage ideas – combined with the adoption of valet self-storage services – we can greatly improve our living conditions and our lives.

Summer Self-Storage – With the end of summer season, we need to store all the items that can take a lot of space in our homes. Popular summer items like water toys, pool inflatables, life vests and other water sport related items can be stored with a valet self-storage service. Other summer products like outdoor tents, bbq grills, bicycles, the market umbrella, cushions and patio furniture can be stored away until next year. Clearing these items for the duration of the winter period will help to de-clutter your home and your life.  And help to encourage a more relaxing home environment leading to less stress.

Winter Self-Storage –winters in Hong Kong can be very cold.  The clothing we wear becomes bulky.  We need to make use of heaters to keep the apartment warm.  Thick heavy duvets get laid on the bed.  All of this takes up space.  With the end of winter these items get put to the back of the cupboard until next year – but they take up much needed space.  Why not clear this seasonal stuff out of the home and allow for more space throughout the summer period.  It is important to store all of your items in a storehouse that provides climate control and maintain stable humidity to keep your belongings in great condition.

Seasonal Holiday Storage – Hong Kong people love their holidays.  And why not!  We live in such a small geographical area that is severely limited in providing seasonal outdoor sporting type activities such as skiing and mountain bike riding.  As our winter sets in, many families flock to other countries in search of snow fields and a snow adventure.  We pack up all our bulky clothing and equipment and setup to the snow fields of Japan, Europe or Canada.  We have a wonderful time, and upon returning to Hong Kong we put our holiday equipment away for an entire year.  And for the rest of the year that snow equipment takes up space that we could use for something else – so why not make use of valet self-storage and store the holiday equipment (including bulky suitcases) in a virtual cupboard and have it returned to you only when you need it.

Make space for your growing family with Valet Self-Storage


With a growing family, our homes can quickly accumulate a great deal of stuff. When it comes to planning for the arrival of a new born baby – space can quickly become a pressing issue for expectant parents.  New born babies require their own bedding, change tables, toys and accessories – all of which can be not only very expensive – but also demanding of our limited space.

As new born’s become infants – the equipment, toys and accessories required by parents also change. The cost associated with raising a child increase and parents find ourselves with increased space pressures as the items we accumulate just keep mounting up.  We parents are faced with difficult choices in order to gain a bit more living space. Do we sell those expensive new-born items now that our child is no longer an infant?  But what if we are planning to have another child?  Do we look for larger accommodation at inflated prices?

As an infant becomes a toddler, we parents are again confronted with the need for new equipment, toys and accessories.  Faced with the same dilemmas as before – parents must make difficult decisions and compromises relating to what we keep and what must be disposed of.

This cycle continues throughout the duration of our children’s lives and the expansion of our families, and will constantly generate space constraint issues.
