Getting the House Ready for Christmas in Surrey

With the festive season just around the corner, you might be putting some ideas together for Christmas Day lunch and New Year’s Eve. It’s typically a busy time for everyone, but even more so for those brave souls who plan on having overnight guests staying. That’s when most people start to realise several storage containers and cardboard boxes already occupy the spare room.

Before you start planning on where you can redistribute everything, don’t panic; WH Cox & Son is here to help. Storage is an excellent way to create more space at home this festive season, without resorting to jamming everything in the loft or garage. You can even stash presents in your storage unit there to keep them away from prying eyes.

Preparing Your Home for Guests –

If you’re having guests over for Christmas, you need to make as much space as possible. However, this doesn’t mean moving the storage containers from the spare room and piling them into the garage or loft. The best way to reclaim the spare room is to rent a storage unit from WH Cox and Son. By doing this, you’ll have plenty of space for guests and extra presents.

If you have any children or pets to contend with, you might need to childproof any plugs and box in exposed electrical points. Additionally, it’s probably a good idea if you move any fragile things away from the bustling crowd to avoid breakages. Box the smaller pieces up and make sure you put plenty of packaging inside, just in case. Label everything, so you have an easier job when the festivities come to an end.

It’s also vital that you give yourself more time by ordering the food for your Christmas lunch or dinner in advance. You can store any non-perishables in your storage unit to keep space free. Similarly, you can discuss the fresher produce like meat with your butcher so they can set some aside for you to collect on the 23rd or 24th.
