Decluttering SPARKS JOY. Isn't it?

You know how difficult it is to move around efficiently if you've ever lived, worked, or even just passed through a congested space. Because you're always at risk of treading on or knocking over something valuable, you have to be extra careful with your steps. Furthermore, clutter in any location has the tendency to shrink large routes into small, narrow entrances that can only be passed through by one person at a time.

When should you use a temporary storage facility?

Answering a few easy questions will help you figure out when it's time to get some extra storage space: Is it safe to wander around the grounds without worrying about hitting something or bumping into someone? Would you think the place was clean and tidy if you were a visitor? If you answered no to both of these questions, your office may be in need of some decluttering.

When it comes to office clutter, the most common problem is retaining stuff that the company doesn't need right now. In that instance, it's easier to toss out items that are no longer useful, such as empty cartons and other similar materials. In most cases, however, these artifacts are either valuable or hold sensitive information. At the very least, there may be a variety of practical reasons to avoid getting rid of them right away. Some of them could include the following:

  • Hefty pieces of furniture

  • Machines and networking hardware

  • Appliances for the kitchen and/or seasonal items (e.g. props, folding tables & chairs)

Putting these goods in a better location, such as a temporary storage facility, is the best method to clear your office for objects like these that still have value to the company. Temporary storage units are a superb, low-cost storage option that provides more flexibility, scalability, and quick deployment.

In Singapore, temporary warehouse solutions can be created and ready for use in a week or less, can sustain long-term use, and can be demolished when no longer needed. They're also much less expensive than building a permanent warehouse from the ground up in the office compound, given cost savings on labor, site services, foundations, design services, and other supplies.

All of these factors, as well as others, illustrate why temporary storage can be an excellent long-term business solution for companies with changing storage requirements.

What are your strategies for utilizing temporary storage?

While moving belongings into a temporary storage facility may appear to be a simple process, there are a few measures to follow to ensure that the process goes as easily and as efficiently as possible. The first order of business is to conduct inventory, which entails listing all gadgets, equipment, and any other non-essential items such as a copier machine.

After that, declutter with the team and talk about categorizing the objects they use into groups like those they use the most, those they might use in the future, and the rest they don't think they'll use. Also, attempt to reach an agreement with them about any personal goods they may have brought to work and ask them to return them all, except for the items they require or that are generally discreet, such as desk decorations. Finally, set a deadline for when they should finish cleaning up in order to get them moving.

All objects that are only used sometimes but may still be useful in the future or that the company cannot stand to part with are great candidates for temporary storage. Everything else should be thrown away or sold if it still has value.


Though determining which items to keep and which to discard can be stressful and unsure, remember that the goal is to create a cleaner, tidier, and more peaceful work environment.

Fortunately, Nanyang Inc provides temporary storage leasing for any business that needs it, allowing products that would otherwise be thrown out to be saved for future use, which is ideal for materials that still have some value.
