The process of moving and relocating can be a stressful process as it involves quite a bit of planning. Planning includes deciding the time and date of your move, the number of boxes you’d need to hold your items and decluttering to remove those items that you no longer need. For those who are under such pressure, here are 3 smart tips just for you!


1.Estimate your moving budget and make a checklist.

If you’re on a tight budget, remember to create a comprehensive checklist that includes every single detail you need to note. Start by sorting out and writing down the list of items that should be packed, discarded or donated. Then gauge how many boxes will be needed for packing each room at your current house. By doing this, you can minimise your packing time and items that you’d be bringing over to your new place. It’d also be easier to request for a quote from the moving vendors since you’ve already estimated the scale of your stuff.


2.Getting rid of things and tackle your stuff.

Start by choosing what you’ll be taking and what you’ll be discarding or donating. Start to pack discarded items first and decide how to deal with them. By decluttering your home, you can definitely eliminate a considerable number of items.

Take a good look at your remaining belongings. Time to pack off-season items you rarely use. Start with bulky furniture, books and clothing. Make sure to place heavy items at the bottom and stack up lighter things on top to keep the balance. Once you’ve packed the items into the various boxes, label them by different categories to further ease the moving process.


3.Book moving service as early as possible.

There are moving companies out there, but that doesn’t mean they are always available on your schedule. In order to find the best suitable service for you and to avoid any extra charge incurred, research and compare moving vendors way in advance, if possible. Who knows, you might even score an early-bird booking deal!


4.Arrange large furniture and appliances.

If you’ve hired movers, they might help you to place heavy furniture in the right place. The best scenario here is if you already have a layout in your mind to direct them where to place right after unloading. Moving items like fridge, wardrobe and bed are best left to the pros as they are not easy to move by yourself and very prone to scratching your wall and floor.


5.Unpack the necessities first.

Have you packed your daily essentials such as toiletries, kitchen stuff and pyjamas separately? Unpacking these boxes first ensures that all your necessities are fast in place. Once in your new home, there’s no need to rush to empty all your boxes at once, as you’ll likely be overwhelmed by the clutter from your old house. Just unpack the necessary things first and then take your time with the rest of the home.


If you’re looking for a space where you can store moving items on a short-term basis (we welcome long-term storage as well!), consider using self-storage. Extra Space offers flexible storage period from as short as 2 weeks to as long as required. You’ll able to choose unit ranging from 1.5 to 40 square metres as well. On top of this, all of our storage facilities are 24/7 air-conditioned and dehumidified, keeping your storage unit conditions optimal all-day long. Call us today at 1899-8708 to find out more!


The festive Christmas season is back again! However, as the pandemic is still lingering on, most of this season’s joyful events or parties are cancelled. What’s worse, organising a home gathering itself is not so easy as there are a lot of restrictions on it. So, more people are looking for small group home parties, instead of going out to a special venue. If you’re one of them, read on for some tips on how to host a ‘safe home party’.


1.Minimise the number of guests

A Christmas home party in 2020 means a little bit different from the previous years. In terms of the party size, you shouldn’t invite all of your friends and let them mingle at the same place! It’s recommended that we have a smaller gathering of less than five to ensure that there is minimal contact.


2.Make sure everyone is in good health

As a party host, you’ll need to confirm that every guest is in good health. Before the party, contact your guests to check in on their health conditions in advance. If someone is not feeling well or having a fever, it’d be better for that guest to stay home instead. For family members who are not living together but thinking of gathering for a Christmas home party, you should do temperature check at the entrance of your house before they enter your home.

Remember that the must-have party item this year is a thermometer.


3.Divide food portions in individual plates

If your food comes in a large portion, it’d be encouraged to divide them into smaller portions and serve in individual plates and cutlery. It might be hard to control social distancing at home, but we can try to follow the basic guidelines to reduce shared contact points. Eating together, yet practising some social distancing. 🙂


4.Take care of your personal hygiene

On top of having a thermometer, the hand sanitiser is considered as another essential for home parties in 2020. Put your hand sanitiser where customers can easily access, such as next to the main door, bathroom, and on the table in the living room. Also, before your guests arrive, remember to do a quick check to see if your hand wash is enough.


5.Make enough space for everyone

Allocating a larger space is ideal for any party, especially this year. Arrange your chairs a bit further from each other and try to make enough space as much as possible. If you’ve too many things at home to make that happen, consider using a self-storage unit short-term. It’ll help you declutter as well as secure extra space. Self-storage Companies like Extra Space offer flexible rental periods from as short as 2 weeks, with 24-hour access and security features. Call 1899-8708 to find out more!



Are you a sports fanatic who loves different seasonal sports? If your workout schedule includes various outdoor activities such as golf sessions in autumn, surfing during summer and skiing during winter, it’s understandable for you to face space issues at home storing these bulky sports equipment. To solve this problem, here are three effective ways to store these sports equipment well.


1. Hang your equipment on empty walls and ceiling

Time to get creative! Look how much space these large items are taking up on the floor. If you think that utilising the floor space is the only way to store your sports equipment, think again. Especially for those living in a small apartment, you can explore hanging your sports gear such as bikes and surfboards from the wall or ceiling hooks. This will definitely free up your floor space while using your sports as a part of your home décor. How cool is that!


2.Shelve them together with your books

Besides finding a space to store all your sports equipment, you might also need some space to store smaller sports gears like golf balls, rackets, helmets and knee pads. One practical way to organise would be to place these small items on your shelf. This idea allows you to find each item quickly and easily when you need them. By placing this shelf space next to your large sports equipment, you can save time when packing an


3.Rotate the items according to the season

One of the easiest ways to not mess things up is placing those frequently-used items in the most accessible area. For example, during the summer season, you can store your ski equipment away and organise your water sports equipment somewhere within easy reach. When winter comes, simply switch this arrangement around!


For those who don’t have enough space to store equipment at home, why not consider storing these items at self-storage space such as Extra Space? With 24-hour accessibility, you’ll be able to store and retrieve your items any time, any day.

Travelling overseas or going to the beach are the most popular things to do for the summer holidays. However, people are now changing their summer trip plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More people are choosing camping trips that respect social distancing. If you are keen on going on a camping trip as well, check out these three essential tips.


  1. Prepare your camping gear using a checklist

This list should include: a tent, sleeping bags, folding chairs, lighting and a first-aid kit. Since the camping site is far away from the city, bringing the right equipment is very important and having a checklist will definitely help you remember the important items.


  1. Choosing a camping site

A good camping site for beginners is a town nearby with good facilities and amenities. Go online to check out campsites in your area, and you will realise that there are so many options to choose from. If you have pets, you need to check in advance to find out if pets are allowed. On the campsite, try to find a flat, clean and even ground to set up your tent. Beware of any sharp rocks or debris, as an uneven ground may damage your tent and affect the comfort of your sleep.


  1. Bring a quilt and some extra clothes

Camping is an outdoor activity that is impacted by the weather conditions, and you might experience cold at night as the temperature drops. So bringing waterproofing items, extra clothes and a quilt to the campsite is highly recommended – add them to your checklist!

Camping gear is bulky and takes up space. If you are running out of space to store your camping gear, maybe Extra Space can help. Here, you can enjoy the freedom to access your belongings 24/7 any time, any day. Storage spaces ranging from 1.5 to 40 square-metres are available, with rental periods from as short as two weeks to as long as required. Call 1899-8708 today to find out more.

Using steel material partition instead of urethane

Fires in a warehouse pose huge problems and risks and lead to an immeasurable loss of life and property, especially when building partitions are made of urethane material. Urethane foam has excellent insulation, explaining its popularity amongst many warehouse facilities. However, as it is not a fire-resistant material, this material causes fire breakouts to spread quickly.


In an attempt to safeguard the Extra Space facilities and to minimise the risk of fire, we have committed to only using partitions made from steel that has passed stringent safety inspections. Safety has always been our utmost priority, and we strive to provide a safe and secure facility that all our customers can rely on.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, South Korea has started to teach students online. As this is a relatively new initiative, many parents are worried about creating a conducive study environment at home. Here are some tips to make the ideal study room for our kids.


  1. Remove distractions

Kids are very easily distracted, especially during the “Homeschooling” period as they will be staying at home all day. Therefore, if you want your child to focus on studying during the e-learning, remove all possible distractions from the kid’s room.


  1. Keep the study space organised

One of the most effective ways to make your child focus on learning at home is to maintain a tidy room. Organise school materials such as textbooks, notes and school supplies near the desk. And make sure all study items are placed at a designated area on the desk or in the drawer. You can also consider labelling the items to guide kids on how to organise each item themselves after use.


  1. Lighting

Dim settings never fail to make us sleepy. So think about adding a small lamp on the desk for a well-lit study space. But, remember choose a light source that is not too bright or straining on the eyes!


  1. Space

Not enough space to create a study room for kids at home? You can easily make space by storing things at a self-storage facility like Extra Space. Here, you can have the flexibility to store things as short as 14 days to as long as required (with spaces ranging from 1.5 to 40 square metres). Once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, simply bring your things back home as usual.
