Why Should Event Planners Utilise Self Storage

As an events planner, being organised and staying on top of things is essential to pulling off an unforgettable experience. However, ensuring all your invoices and decorations are in order can be extremely difficult, especially if you work from home. That’s where self storage comes in. With a secure storage unit, events planners can easily store all their dazzling decor and access it in an instant. 

Here’s how Storage World’s services make event planning and management super simple and stress free. 

Free up space at home

One of the drawbacks of running an events company is that you often have to store equipment in your garage or home before or after big events. This can take up valuable space and result in damaged or lost equipment along the way. With a self storage unit, you can create a boundary between work and home and free up much-needed space. 

Easily store bulky items 

From archways and seating to delicate decor and props, there’s a lot of equipment needed to run a successful events business. Storage World’s easily accessible facility and convenient drive-up units allow events planners to store all their bulky equipment and decor with ease. 

Secure extra space nearby 

Running an events company means that you often have to be in multiple places at once with not a minute to spare. With three centrally located stores in Greater Manchester, your decor and equipment will always be nearby.

Event Planning Tips to Stay Organised

Organisation and multi-tasking are two essential skills as an events planner. A truly spectacular event requires everything from award-winning dishes to jaw-dropping decor, and this can be a lot to juggle.

To ensure you’re always one step ahead, keep these tips in mind. 

Diarise all dates

As an events planner, you might have multiple events happening all in the same week. To ensure you don’t forget to collect an order or arrange a venue, keep track of all major dates in your mobile calendar and set reminders.

Take note of the details

Clients have high expectations and it’s the planner’s job to make them a reality. Make sure that you tick all your client’s boxes by taking note of every detail during your consultation. 

Keep all receipts and invoices

Sometimes a decor item might not fit the theme or your client can cancel last minute. When this happens, it is crucial to have all your invoices and documents neatly filed so that you can cancel bookings or rentals without losing money. 

Categorise decor 

When storing your decor, be sure to organise the boxes according to the category. Store all wedding furniture in one area and kids party decor in another to save time and energy when searching for your items.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Alex Jones

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
