You may have heard that the Government has decided to introduce VAT on self-storage. As of the 1st October 2012 unfortunately the self-storage industry will have to start charging VAT to all their customers who rent self-storage spaces. In order to assist our customers and provide you with all the relevant information we have devised a number of FAQ’s to ensure you are clued up on the new VAT legislation.
So Why Has It Been Introduced?
Good Question! Whether it’s a tax on pasties or self-storage there needs to be a valid reason behind it, so what does the Government have to say about it? Well they believe by bringing in the VAT they are bringing equality throughout the self-storage industry, this may well be a factor. Another factor is basically that it’s another tax to collect and another way to aid the reduction of the deficit.Storage | Tagged storage in Shirley | Leave a comment September 12, 2012
Self-storage can be the perfect way to move, relocate, or simply keep a selection of your belongings for a period of time. Whatever your reason for taking advantage of storage facilities, you need to know you’re personal effects are going somewhere safe and secure, somewhere that provides the full package, from a comprehensive unit to legendary, memorable customer service. Here at Arden Self Storage, we’ve made doubly sure we tick all the boxes on your storage check list, and to help you get started, here are our top tips to get your matter moving!
First of all, like every seemingly complex task, your best bet is to plan, plan ahead and know exactly what you’re going to do when the time comes to get your stuff in storage. Make a list of the things you need the most and highlight the things you’re going to keep toward the front, whilst also noting the bulkier items you can keep at the back! Not only will this help with things going in, it will make unloading easier too!
Remember to protect your belongings. Cover up furniture with sheets, and put smaller items such as CD’s and DVD’s inside shelving units or the fridge, just don’t forget they’re there! This will optimise your available space whilst also helping to ensure everything stays looking great, even if it’s in storage for long periods of time!
Speaking of space optimization, always remember to think vertical when packing. This will make the most of your space and with careful planning will allow you to stack the safer, bulkier items, making more room at the front of your unit for access to the things you need!
Try to leave room to get by, squashing everything together should only be done if absolutely necessary – leaving space will make getting about inside when you need to much easier!
Here at Arden Self Storage, we’re committed to bringing you a storage service you’ll love, in our controlled environment, whether it’s commercial or domestic storage, you’ll find everything you need from us: safety, security and peace of mind, with top quality storage units, access and a dedication to meeting your needs that is simply unrivalled.

More and more people are turning to growing their own vegetables and it’s easy to see why, as your putting your own food on your own table, cutting down on costs, learning, exercising and above all – having a whole lot of fun in the process! Growing veg is also about community and a wholesome lifestyle, and no more so than when using a patch in allotments, surrounded by like-minded people all inside a hive of ideas and inspiration. But how do you get from the seed, through to the roots and onto the table? Here at Arden Self-Grow, we have put together some helpful top tips.
When to start Growing
It’s always a great time to start growing your own vegetables; however it is definitely best to start in Autumn or Early Winter, as it means that all of your crops will begin to flourish in the New Year. Meaning that there couldn’t be a better time to get your own allotment here at Arden Self Grow, as Autumn is just around the corner and you can spend the time in between setting everything up. (Although our service ensures that each new customer’s plot will be thoroughly prepared and ready to plant on – with free farm manure able to be supplied).
Get Inventive when Fighting the Pests
There’s no need to employ an exterminator as you will want to keep things natural when tending to your allotment and staving off the pests, because after all, one of the best thing about growing vegetables is knowing that they are free of pesticides and any chemicals. To shoo away snails set up a beer trap and to avoid birds snacking on your precious parsnips or pumpkins, get even more inventive by hanging CD’s from high bamboo sticks (the constantly reflecting light should keep them at bay!)
Having your own allotment should be all about having fun, and at Arden Self-Grow we know that this is the best place for it, as everything is tailored to your needs such as having the ability to drive right up to your plot and rent it starting from just £2.00 a week. Give us a call and get started!
