Reasons For Self Storage

Home owners and renters are using self storage units to store extra things that they have no place at home for or for when life unexpectedly changes.  Need a place to store your belongings when your house sells and you have not found the perfect home yet?  Has your small business inventory taken over your home?  Whether it's for a home renovation or for holding extra things, a storage unit may be the answer for you.

Self-storage provides space and protection to store your valuables, here are other ways a self storage rental can help:

1)  MOVING TO A NEW HOME OR DOWNSIZING

Whether you are decluttering your home to sell, storing your belongings while in between homes or downsizing for retirement; renting a self storage unit can help ease the stress of moving.

2)  HOME RENOVATIONS

Renovating or remodelling your house can be exciting but stressful.  Not sure what to do with all your stuff so it's not in the way?  A Self Storage rental will keep your belongings protected and out of the way.

3)  TRAVELLING THE WORLD/SNOWBIRD

Travelling for an extended period of time?  Instead of worrying about your belongings and your vacant house getting broken into; a self storage unit gives you the peace of mind knowing your belongings are safe. 

4)  SEASONAL ITEMS

Avoid cluttering your garage or shed with stuff you don't need throughout the year.  A Self Storage unit is an affordable and convenient option to store all your seasonal items.  As the seasons change, rotate the items you store.

5)  A GROWING FAMILY

Babies require alot of preparation.  Self storage is perfect for storing furniture you may not need if converting an existing bedroom into a nursery.   Planning on having more than one baby?  Self Storage is great for storing cribs, play pens, baby chairs, bassinets, or car seats until you have additional children.

6)  CHANGES IN LIVING ARRANGEMENTS

Newly married or moving in together and merging two households?  A storage unit is great for storing those treasured items that you just don't have room for when merging two households.

7)  PASSING OF A LOVED ONE OR DIVORCE

Divorce and passing of a loved one are unfortunately things we must face which can be painful and traumatic experiences.  In case of a loss, you now are faced with having to go through belongings and figure out what to do with them.  Self Storage gives you a place to store these items so that you can go through them when you are emotionally ready.  

8)  BUSINESS RECORDS/INVENTORY

No place to store your business records, inventory or seasonal furniture?  Self Storage can be an affordable option instead of renting additional office or warehouse space for these items.

9)  STUDENTS

Moving home for the summer and have too much stuff to store at home?  Renting a storage unit over the summer is a great short term storage option.

10)  SIMPLY RUNNING OUT OF SPACE

Have you accumulated too much stuff over the years?  Consider decluttering your house and renting a storage unit for all your valuable items you can't live without.
