easyStorage Scotland’s Seven Steps to Help with Cost of Living

As the cost of living rises, easyStorage Scotland is doing what it can to ease some of the burden.

Housing costs rising at over 8%. Consumer Prices Index inflation over 10%. All of the UK, including Scotland, is feeling the pinch. Shop prices rose by a record 5.1% in August as the war in Ukraine raised costs for farmers, while fresh food prices also rose by 10.5%.

Cost of living hikes. Fuel hikes. Interest rate hikes. Things are simply getting more expensive, and more cost hikes are expected.

In true easyStorage Scotland style, the team has looked at what they can realistically do to help people, be they individuals or businesses (whilst still stay solvent themselves, of course!):

1.       Cheaper storage

If you are with an existing self-storage service, there is every chance that you are paying too much. easyStorage prices come in at around half the price of traditional self-storage, and will even collect from your existing storage unit, free of charge.

(Other offers do still apply on top of this.)

2.       12 WEEKS at 50% OFF for all new customers

As if the easyStorage offer wasn’t already great across the board easyStorage Scotland has brought in half price storage for the first 12 weeks.

3.       Additional discounts for long term storage

If you need longer term storage, additional discounts can be made available.

4.       Freebies

·         FREE transportation crew to take things into storage

·         FREE fuel for transportation into storage

·         FREE security seals

·         FREE access to your storage pod

5.       Key worker discounts

All of the following key workers, the people who keep us safe and well, people we consider everyday heroes, are entitled to a further easyStorage Scotland discount as a thank you for the work supporting communities across Scotland:

·         NHS workers

·         Blue light workers: Police, fire and ambulance personnel

·         Care sector workers: home carers, care unit staff

·         Armed forces (Navy, Army, Airforce, MoD and Reserves)

·         Council employees

6.       Students

easyStorage Scotland is proud of the service it offers students, and goes the extra mile with collection and deliveries at Universities and colleges across Scotland.

7.       Pensioners

A State pension is barely enough to exist on in the current climate, and with winter looming the price of heating properties looks frightening.

easyStorage Scotland offers a pensioner discount.

These links may also help, by the way:

·         Every year, millions of pounds of benefits go unclaimed by older people in Scotland. Age UK wants to change that and is running some free benefits workshops, online.

·         easyStorage recently answered a couple’s question about turning space into money:  Can space mean money?

When not tapping at a keyboard she can be found renovating an old cottage, despite having inherited a complete lack of DIY skills from her father. She has two children, now grown up, and a dopey, loving Vizler (dog), Chester, who steadfastly refuses to do the same. She claims he’s her soulmate!
