For decades, the borough of Croydon was characterised by having a large percentage of low-grade commercial accommodation and by being over-reliant on the public sector. However, things have changed significantly in a relatively short period of time, since Croydon has diversified its economy and made important infrastructure improvements, thus attracting a wide variety of start-ups and established firms. A recent Financial Times report revealed that Croydon has become a highly sought-after destination for entrepreneurs and investors as it has become a very desirable business location, mainly thanks to its excellent transportation links with central London and to the affordable prices of commercial real estate. According to the report, more than 13,000 new companies were registered in Croydon over a period of three years. As an increasing number of businesses are launched or relocate to Croydon, the need for adequate storage space becomes more pressing.

In a number of situations, that can mean employees relocating to a new residence near the business’ new location. Graeme Brown of the Birmingham Post said such may be the case for banking conglomerate HSBC, which is preparing to set up the U.K. headquarters of its personal and business banking divisions in the city after years at the global HQ in London’s Canary Wharf. The relocation can give businesses in Croydon, South London, some ideas about a change in location in the borough or a full transfer, in light of current conditions in the area. The borough is eagerly awaiting the plans of election candidates Gavin Barwell and Sarah Jones to aid local businesses if either of them represented Croydon Central after the upcoming elections.

Some U.K. citizens may have ideas about living elsewhere in the Commonwealth and work hard to achieve that dream. One place worth giving a shot may be on the other side of the planet: New Zealand.

The idea of starting a new chapter of your life in the Land of Kiwis and the All-Blacks may be enticing to Britons who seek different pastures.

When moving from one place to another, you might find there are things you can’t take with you just yet. You may still be in the process of re-designing your space, and you need a place to store them for some time until you have decided what to do with them.

Some people opt to go for self-storage where they travel to move or retrieve some of their stuff in a lock-and-key storage unit. This might seem a practical way of doing it, but if you have planned beforehand what you can take with you and what can be stored away in the meantime, right then you can have your removal company pick them up and haul them away for safekeeping in specialist storage units.

If you have a pet, however, just stop and think for a second.
