Storage for Videography and Film Production Companies in Central London

Any business owner that operates in London will know that it’s difficult to find an affordable workspace. That’s why many companies use their homes to work and store their equipment. It reduces the overheads from renting a commercial warehouse or office, which are extremely pricey in London. However, depending on the type of business you run, this can put your equipment at risk.

For videography and film production companies, the value of each piece of equipment is costlier than most SMEs in other sectors. One high-quality camera can cost thousands, making it vital that they don’t sustain any damage or theft. Although most companies will have some level of contents insurance, it doesn’t always provide the cover people expect.

Getting the Most Out of Limited Living Spaces in St. Johns Wood

Properties in certain parts of London are very sought-after. And St. John’s Wood is always at the top of everyone’s wish list for the ideal place to live in the capital. It’s a place that went against the original trend of terraced houses, instead opting for semi-detached villas and blocks of mansion apartments.

 

For those lucky Londoners who have one of the luxury apartments in St. John’s Wood, there’s also a slight drawback. There isn’t much additional space for things like storage, and you need to limit your possessions a bit. It’s also not easy to entertain more than one or two guests at one time.

Best Places to Visit in St. John’s Wood –

Abbey Road & Abbey Road Studios – if you’re entertaining guests in St. John’s Wood, be sure to take them to Abbey Road. The studio is still operating so it’s not open to visitors, but the gift shop has memorabilia that can’t be found anywhere else. You can do what everyone does when they visit Abbey Road and take your own Beatles homage picture. If you want to know about all things music, you can go on the Rock Tour of London.

St. John’s Wood High Street – this is one of the best places to visit in London. St. John’s Wood High Street has a bit of everything. If you want quality meat, you’ll find non-better than Sheepdrove Organic Family Butchers. James Worrall Antiques offers some of the best finds for those who collect. If you’re looking for the latest in designer clothing, LK Bennett is one of London’s favourite fashion haunts. If you just want to relax with a coffee after a busy day, head to the Ivy Café.

The Duke of York Pub – known as one of London’s best gastropubs, a visit to St John’s Wood wouldn’t be proper without a visit. The Duke of York has been serving happy punters since 1826 and provides excellent food and drink throughout the day and evening. Its staff are friendly, and it’s right around the corner from Lord’s, so it’s a regular for cricket fans.

Hampstead Heath – Hampstead Heath is one of London’s most famous green space. You can get a spectacular view of London’s Skyline from Parliament Hill at any time of the day or evening. There are ponds where you can swim to cool off in the summer sun, and it’s a great place to bring the family or relax with friends.

Increase Living Spaces with Self Storage –

For people with limited space, renting a self storage unit can add the equivalent area of a small room. This may not sound like a massive amount of space, but if you have a one or two-bed apartment, it starts to sound vast. If you have a lot of possessions that are stuffed into and under every available space, you’ll be able to organise everything with self storage.

For people who have expensive or irreplaceable possessions, then self storage becomes even more relevant. The truth about any storage space at home is that houses and apartments weren’t built to keep out all the elements. One of the leading causes of damage to property in the home isn’t through fire or theft; it’s from water damage. And it’s not always from leaks through the roof or a burst pipe. More often than not, it’s from damp that seeps in through the ceiling or wall, and slowly warps or causes mould.

One of the best aspects of using self storage is that you get the same level of access as you would if you had a garage. Most reputable storage providers offer convenient  access hours, making it possible to get things in and out of your storage unit with minimal fuss. Self storage is the ideal solution for inner-city apartments with few to no storage spaces. You’ll be able to keep your apartment clutter free without having to get rid of the things you love.
