Introduction to Mini Storage


Yau Tong is located in the south-eastern part of Kowloon and is administratively part of the Kwun Tong district. The northern part of Yau Tong is a residential area with mainly public housing and Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) flats, while the southern part of Yau Tong is still an industrial development area, but part of it has been planned as a private residential area. As a result, there is a considerable supply of housing in Yau Tong, so we at One Storage are ready to show you more about living in Yau Tong!



District Introduction - Yau Tong

Before 1940, Yau Tong was actually a suburban area with no special development. It was only in the 1960s that a public housing area was designated along Lei Yue Mun Road, and later on, Yau Tong Estate and Ko Chiu Road Estate were built and an industrial area was established along the coast.


Yau Tong has always been regarded as a relatively remote area, probably because it is relatively far from the centre of urban development in Kowloon. Even when the MTR Kwun Tong Line was opened, there were no plans for Yau Tong to be built. However, with the opening of the Eastern Harbour Crossing and the Tseung Kwan O Line, Yau Tong became more accessible and large housing estates and private residential developments began to be built.


The early public housing estates in Yau Tong were demolished and redeveloped around the 1990s, and industrial buildings were left vacant due to the decline of Hong Kong's manufacturing industry. As a result, there are now many more residential areas in Yau Tong.


There is an interesting story about the origin of the name of Yau Tong, which was formerly known as Yau Tong. In fact, in the earliest official documents, Yau Tong was referred to by the English name Yau Tong, so it is difficult to know whether it was Yau Tong or Yutong.


It is also said that the construction of an oil depot in Cha Kwo Ling began in 1947, and that the depot was expanded in 1954, so the name 'Yau Tong' was gradually changed to 'Yau Tong'.


According to some old photographs and film clips, most of the bus routes in the Yau Tong area in the 1960s started as "Yau Tong", but when the MTR Tseung Kwan O Line was opened in 2002, "Yau Tong" station became the official station name. Therefore, it can be proved that both names are or have been used, only that most people now use the name "Yau Tong".

Points to note on renovation works
When you want to move into a new place, you have to start the renovation process after you have purchased the flat. There are some important points you should pay attention to!



Renovation point 1 - Understand the diagrams

To ensure that the renovation project is exactly what you want it to be, you should communicate clearly with the renovation company and the master when understanding the plans.



Point 2 - Construction specifications

You should ask the renovation company to set out in detail the specifications and standards of construction, such as the angle and spacing of flooring, the standard of waterproofing, the condition of aluminium window edges, etc.



Point 3 - Identify the dimensions

It is important to check with the decorator and the contractor the dimensions of various materials, such as the size of the aluminium windows, the thickness of the glass, the size of the bricks, etc., to avoid future disputes over the size of the items and even the progress of the project.



Key point 4 - Understand the characteristics of materials
The characteristics and nature of different materials will produce different effects. For example, art paints are painted differently from ordinary paints, so if you do not understand the characteristics of the materials, you may not be able to achieve the desired effect.


Points to note during the moving process
Your new home is finished and you are ready to settle in! No, we still have to move! I'm sure you don't move around a lot, so there may be some things you should be aware of when you move, but don't worry, we've got tips for you!



Tips for moving house 1 - Pay attention to the lucky day and time

Many people who believe in feng shui and fortune telling may need to pay attention to auspicious dates and times, but in reality, they also need to match the moving company's schedule with their own, so it is important to check and explain the moving schedule in advance so that it can match the auspicious dates and realistic factors at the same time!


Note 2 - Get to know the environment of your new home first

You should know the surroundings of your new home in advance, and inform the removal company of all the things you need to pay attention to.


Note 3 - Remember to pack your keys

If you don't have a key for your new home, you should make sure you have one in advance to avoid not being able to open the door until the removal company has completed the move.
