So after a three-month ride on the ‘Coronacoaster’, we’re slowly starting to see a return to some sort of normality.
Families are reconnecting, people are returning to work, even the Premier League is due back very soon. But let’s be honest, things aren’t going to be the same as they were for some time … if, in fact, ever again.
The question really is ‘are you thinking about change?’ If you are, you should be talking to us at QStore.
Recent events have undoubtedly created a change in attitude and it’s widely believed that when we’re given space and time, we start to think about the changes we’d like to make to improve our lives. We do it on holiday, we do it at weekends and we’ve definitely done it during the lockdown.
It may be anecdotal but here at QStore in Saltash we’ve had an unexpected flurry of enquiries from customers that want to make positive changes to their lives and self-storage is strangely an important part of that.
It seems that people have spent the last three months locked indoors staring at the same furniture, fixtures and fittings, day in, day out and as we step out of the doldrums, one of the first things that customers are looking to do is put a load of those pieces in storage.
People don’t always like disposing of precious things with their many memories, because they know that certain items, especially furniture, can either come back in to fashion or just increase in value over time. The most cost-effective way of dealing with these pieces is to put them in self-storage and that’s why people are picking up the phone to us at QStore.
We’re also often seen as a short-term solution for storage needs. People may be redecorating, rearranging, moving or merely trying something new … all of which have started to increase recently.
In addition, we operate a completely confidential shredding and data disposal service, so whether you need to dispose of personal or business data for yourself, your business or your clients, our specialist QDataShred team can handle your needs safely, quickly and most importantly compliantly. We offer a full service including lockable office bins, secure and regular collections and a guaranteed safe disposal service.
Rather than just closing down temporarily during these difficult times and waiting to see what happens, here at QStore we’ve made a real effort to make the business ready for the ‘new normal’ as we understand that people need us right now. We’ve brought in any number of new, efficient ways of working that are safe for both you the customer as well as our staff.
We’re sanitizing everything, social distancing everywhere (with signage to explain) and now have an appointment-based system that works seamlessly well, along with friendly staff that are still on hand to help in the very same way they were before. Customers have full access to storage facilities with only slightly reduced operating hours and our location is easily accessed from the A38 in Saltash which makes us perfectly placed for customers in Cornwall and Devon alike.
So as we move away from that strange time when toilet rolls were valued higher than crude oil, let’s embrace the fact that the lockdown will have undoubtedly made people think about ‘change’. That could be as simple as a rearrangement of the house, a redecoration or in fact a completely new house altogether … all of which self-storage can help you with.
If you are interested to hear how we at QStore and QDataShred can help you with those self-storage and data disposal needs, then please call us on 01752 841900 or email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
