Mostly As:
Organising Ninja. You're born to declutter and make any home you inhabit a sparkly and organised space. You thrive on situations which call for systematic and strategic organisation—why, you have tons of bins and organisers at your disposal. Friends turn to you for their organising woes, and guests gush over your clutter-free and clean home. Congratulations!

Mostly Bs: Mr. or Miss Minimalist. You want your home to be spotless, devoid of unnecessary things that contribute to clutter. Clean and clear surfaces are your pride and joy—you just can't explain the happiness you feel seeing your desk shine in its sparsity. But then, even the most minimalist of houses encounters obstacles, like the presence of a furniture piece that does not fit your interior theme but cannot be thrown away. Enter Work+Store, which stores furniture, appliances, or other items that you do not currently want to have at your home. Work+Store does valet storage, so you can simply pack your stuff for them to pick up. Easy and hassle-free!

Mostly Cs: Kickass Collector. Your home is a repository of all things you hold dear, so your organising requirement is simple: you must have enough shelves and cabinets to accommodate them all. It frustrates you to no end, knowing that you are slowly running out of places to store your collectibles. Here's how you can address this problem: Get the people of Work+Store to pick up some stuff at your home to allow more space for your collections. No need to part with your most prized Fender guitars or Hello Kitty toys; just store something else—your old trophies and luggage, perhaps?

Mostly Ds: Happy Hoarder. Face it: You just love having pretty things. Keeping them at home is a kind of therapy—it banishes your stresses and cheers you up immensely. Your space enshrines eclectic pieces, quirky accessories, and other treasures gathered from your numerous shopping expeditions and travels. However, your concern is you are running out of space to hold all these wondrous and curious things. Ditching them sounds like a disservice to yourself, so why not just keep some of your purchases in Work+Store? Keep them there temporarily until you score a place big enough to shelter everything.

Mostly Es: Sweet and Sentimental. The way you organise your home is a testament to how much you love your family. Every display shelf proudly features your kids' accomplishments, every wall intimates memories you and your family have shared. You cannot absolutely part with your kids' old stuff, from their dollhouses to their first bicycles. But then again, you need to make room for newer family mementos, so why not stash some of them in Work+Store? Work+Store will take care of your family's precious possessions, so you don't have to worry about saying goodbye to them for good.

"You Pack, We Pick Up"—this is the concept behind Work+Store Valet Storage service. They provide temporary storage, plus transportation to pick up your items to be stored. No need to leave the comforts of your home!

Whatever your organisation personality is, you can count on Work+Storage to address all your storage needs.
