An ExtraSpaceCares initiative

Based on the Department of Statistics Singapore, as at end June 2019, the proportion of residents aged 65 years and above has increased from 8.8% in 2009 to 14.4% in 2019. This has led to the old age support ratio in Singapore (where residents aged 20-24 years per resident aged 65 years and above) to be 4.5% in 2019. With the growing numbers over the years, Extra Space Asia feels that it is imperative for us to find ways within our means to lend a helping hand to our elderly community. In 2019, we partnered with Society for the Aged Sick (SAS) and celebrated Christmas with our elderly friends at Gardens by the Bay Singapore.

SAS is a non-profit nursing home that provides residential and respite services to people in need of daily skilled nursing care and/or assistance in daily living activities, and who cannot be cared for at home, particularly the less privileged.

Through this CSR initiative, we were able to bring our elderly friends out of their home to bask in the Christmas festive spirit within the picturesque nature at Gardens by the Bay’s Poinsettia Wishes floral display, located in the Flower Dome. Since it was their first time to the Poinsettia Wishes floral display, it warms our hearts and brings us great satisfaction knowing that we were able to bring smiles and laughter to everyone during this festive and joyous period.

Here’s how our meaningful day went by with our friends at SAS.

Valet Storage is an alternative storage solution that provides a hassle-free, end-to-end storage solution. With this service, you can now store and retrieve your items from the comfort of your home or office while enjoying all the extra space! Valet storage is a good storage option for those who do not need a large amount of storage space but would like to store seasonal and not frequently used items.

At Extra Space Asia, we call this box storage service, E-Valet Storage. Enjoy these 4 key benefits with E-Valet Storage.

1. Lower cost for extra space

Compared to the self-storage rental payment schemes where you pay for the size of the storage space and duration, our E-Valet Storage only costs only $5 per box per month. This way, you’ll only be paying the number of boxes you rented multiplied by the number of months of usage – if you only have a few boxes of items and do not require frequent access to them, this option is the best in value!

2. Free packing boxes for all your items

Forget about the hassles of buying your own storage boxes. With Extra Space Asia E-Valet service, you’ll receive free high-quality industrial-grade boxes every time you need to store something.

These E-Valet boxes are made of high-quality, durable plastic with a secure seal to ensure that your items are not tampered with after you hand them to our staff. Simple, seamless, safe in good hands.

3. Convenience at your fingertips

 

Does your packing list include big bulky items? If yes, you’ll most likely be thinking of engaging a mover. That’s more expenses on top of your storage rental, plus all that time spent coordinating and scheduling.

Now you can skip these hassles. When you engage our E-Valet Storage service, it’s like engaging a mover company and storage company all in one!

Simply go through these 5 steps to enjoy more space in no time!

  1. Register for an account and place your order for boxes via our web app.
  2. Boxes will be delivered to you within 2 business days.
