Plan Your Life Journey with Self Storage at Big Orange
It is said that one comes from dust and returns to the earth with naught. Most of us, however, journey through life with the accumulation of at least some material possessions.
Growing up as a child, one receives and keeps certain items of childish pleasure, such as favorite books or toys. In our adolescent years, our collection of 'must-keep' items may see new additions of mementoes of puppy love and romance, or equipment being the result of fervent pursuits in the arts, musical or sporting fields. As adults, our stockpile of treasured possessions may shift to an accumulation of designer handbags, shoes or clothes, cars, books and other vocational or academic materials as well as all sorts of other imaginable accoutrements. Any Hong Kongan is well aware that each transition from a school to another level of education and from one job to another career causes much upheaval. Even after marriage, our collection of personal belongings continues to expand. Prudence in fact dictates that we keep costly investments such as baby prams, cots, walkers and the like, rather than divest ourselves of them and repurchase similar items with each new arrival to the family. What, then, do we do with all this belongings that cannot be simply dumped (without heartache and regret)?
At Big Orange, we believe in the need to preserve some remnants of various phases and special events of our lives through keeping the few special, selected belongings. And that is why our mission is to provide easy, affordable and reliable storage options to provide the optimum solution for your storage needs, whichever stage of life you may be at. Whether you need a private garage for your three sports cars or vintage Chevys, or simply a smaller space for your modest collection of antiques or sports equipment because you are currently not using these (but wish to leave your options open for the future), we are able to provide the suitable storage space for you. Storage with Big Orange furthermore enables you to clear up your daily living space simply for tidiness and aesthetic comfort, or to accommodate more family members in the home. You can also avoid hearing loved ones constantly complain that you 'hoard stuff' excessively.
We understand that moving – be it for reasons such as moving out of your parents’ house as an adult, settling into Hong Kong as a newly-arrived expatriate, creating a new matrimonial home with your spouse, or ‘upgrading’ your housing in order to accommodate a growing family – can be most demanding and stressful. Hence, we ensure that using our storage facilities will be a smooth and hassle-free process. We offer friendly advice on how you may pack, move and stack your belongings for maximum efficiency and island-wide storage locations. Boxes, packing materials and moving services are also readily available from us at your request. Furthermore, once you have deposited your belongings with us, you can be assured of the security and safety of your belongings. No active kids running around the house who may fall on and hurt themselves or damage your belongings; no fearing that prized cars or bicycles kept in your garden or corridor will be stolen or vandalized.
The good news is that notwithstanding our stringent security measures to safeguard your belongings, we do not restrict how often you may visit your storage space during our generous access hours. The minimum storage period is one month and renewals are likewise by the month. You may have to navigate through various phases and experiences as part of your lfie journey but with self storage, you no longer have to discard every memento of special times as you move forward.
Pursuing Your Passions in Life with Self Storage
The young lady who works as a dentist on weekdays, swings around a tennis racket on weekends, wines and dines on weekday nights and has an entire roomful of black and white noir photographs blown up in portrait form. The middle-aged but charismatic and rugged-looking man who hits the golf course with his clients and spends his time in the office like a workhorse pounding away on the keyboard, but derives enjoyment from the simple pleasure of savoring a bottle from his extensive wine collection and a record put on the gramophone. The comely homemaker who loves her yoga and taking care of her family but finds the ultimate thrill in painstakingly crafting terra cotta sculptures (by no means the sculpture material of choice anymore) when everyone is out of the house and either at work or in school.
Ever met any of them?
They are but snapshots of what we all of us look like at various points in our life. To say that each of us have different interests and hobbies would be an understatement: life is hardly about our work, or school, or indeed anything ‘serious’ at all. Relationships and families certainly play a much larger role, and even these are permeated with shared interests, hobbies and various new and different activities and experiences: as a dating couple, as young parents with lively, curious young kids, as a mature couple whose kids have since flown the nest, and finally as doting grandparents entertaining the young ‘uns, or traipsing around the world as a white-haired couple who ‘lasted the years’ and are out there to re-live life all over again. Life is filled with an amalgamation of events, activities and experiences, and to miss out on any of these would be tragic pity.
While we indulge wholeheartedly in our interests and passions and along the way, collect or create various devices or products, space constraints will no doubt start to hamper our crusade somewhat. Is there room enough for the new crate of aged whiskey ordered just last week and due to arrive soon? Is there sufficient corridor left to accommodate yet another shelf for those terra cotta figurines? What if I wished to further expand my collection of vintage baroque mirrors, or to store my records elsewhere other than in my storeroom – already bursting at the seams - while living in my gorgeous but space-limited penthouse apartment?
Living it up and without regard for temporal constraints such as space would be delightful, and self storage with Big Orange is the perfect complement to such a life.

After safekeeping your material belongings with us, you can go out chalk up some mileage in life and get the better of those who say that life is nothing but a grim march to our expiry dates!
So come on down and try us out: whether you are into collecting, creating, or simply accumulating odds and ends evidencing the thrills and spills of your life, Big Orange is your supporter. We only live once, after all. Why not play hard, indulge fully in every whim, fight for every passion and pursue every interest till you achieve excellence and ultimately, joy and growth as a living, breathing, thriving individual? Here at Big Orange, we will wave the pom-poms furiously and provide you with the logistical support to go for your hearts’ desires in life: life is too short for anything but ‘all-out’ living!!
