Personal storage units are becoming increasingly popular across the country as individuals realize how helpful and versatile they can be. Here are a few situations in which a storage unit may be a good option for you.
If You’re Moving
Storage units can be a lifesaver for individuals and families going through a move. There are a number of ways this resource can come in handy for people moving to a new home, which includes:
- Moving out of a college dorm: Leaving for the summer months but planning on being back in September? Avoid the hassle of having to ship all of your belongings home by placing them in short-term storage until you return.
- Moving out of the country: Many individuals’ career or education pursuits end up taking them abroad for a period of time, which makes keeping furniture, sentimental items and other belongings challenging. Keep your items in a storage unit while you’re out of the country, and take them out again when you return.
- Moving to a smaller home: If you’re downsizing, it can be hard to fit all of your belongings into your new, smaller space. Renting a storage unit makes the process easier to deal with, and you can keep the items you want to while having an easy way to sort through those you may not want to.
- Moving in with a gap: Oftentimes, closing dates work out in a way that there may be a short period of time between leaving your old house and moving into your new one. You can easily store your belongings in a storage unit in this in-between gap until your new home is ready for you.
If You Need Extra Space
Is your home feeling extra cluttered lately? Maybe you have guests staying with you and you need to clear out a guest room for some extra space. Maybe you want to redecorate your home, but avoid getting rid of current furniture, decoration, or other items that have sentimental value.
A storage unit is a great way to move items out of your home, clear up space, and declutter your living space. You can then keep your belongings safe in storage until you want them again, or have a secondary location to go through the sorting process.
If You Have Seasonal Items
The age-old dilemma: Christmas is over and it’s time for the decorations to come down, but you don’t have a good place to store them until next year. A personal storage unit is a perfect solution!
Storage units are a safe, organized, and accessible space to store seasonal items such as holiday decor and winter gear as well as things you only use in the summer months such as tents and camping equipment, pool toys, kayaks, bikes, and more. Keep your belongings out of the way until you need them again.
If You Run a Business
Many individuals these days run small businesses out of their homes. However, unless you have a dedicated office and inventory space (and even then!), business-related items and inventory can easily start to take up your whole home.
Investing in a storage unit for your small business provides you with an affordable, customizable space to store tools, equipment, inventory, or other supplies in a safe, secure, and out-of-the-way space. It’s also a great way to stay organized, which as every business owner knows is extremely important.
