Securing your stock over the holiday period

Did you know – 1.3 million people sell full time on eBay? That’s a lot of people with a lot of stock currently being stored in their personal property.

If you’re one of them, then spare a thought for what you’re going to do over the festive season if you’re going away… It seems this year it’s not just Santa Claus who could be coming down your chimney. According to The Guardian Crime Figures, burglaries are already up 14% on last year.

If you don’t want to let thieves fill their stocking with your stock, then why not consider putting it in temporary self storage over Christmas with Big Yellow Self Storage?

One of the benefits of Big Yellow Self Storage is the flexibility. You can store from as little as seven days and you only pay for the space you need. There are no long term complicated leases to sign and no business rates or VAT to pay. The storage rooms range from lockers and 10 sq.ft. rooms up to 400 sq.ft. rooms and above. And if you want to change room size, it’s easy and hassle free.

If you’re planning on leaving your house over Christmas, security should be front of mind. At Big Yellow Self Storage, customers are given their own unique PIN to access the storage building. The stores have perimeter fencing, secure coded electronic gates and further security comes from 24 hr digital CCTV. Plus Big Yellow staff are on site seven days a week and every storage room is individually alarmed.

So don’t leave it to chance this year, make sure you see in the 2012 with all your precious eBay stock safe and sound and hopefully you’ll be ready to be the next eBay millionaire like Matt and Amanda Clarkson who made a massive £8 million from their eBay sales! Have a Happy Christmas and a prosperous new year!
