This happens to all
of us, you find this amazing new place to move in to and it has all the space
you have been looking for. Week by week you’re filling every nook and cranny
with your beloved items. Then it just happens, one day you look around and
there is no more space. Renting a storage unit is one way to store your
belongings if you have limited space, or simply too much stuff. Here are five
signs you need to rent a storage unit.
Yes, using your
garage to store items is fine, but with it now overflowing with boxes, tools,
and a bunch of things you ordered online, it may be time to rent a storage
unit. There are many advantages to keeping your car in the garage, including
preserving the exterior and interior and theft prevention. It also keeps you
from having to brave the inclement weather on those rough days
If you’re carving
out walls, adding a room extension, or reconstructing a leaky roof, the last
thing you’ll need on your carpets, furniture, and appliances is an added layer
of dust or building debris. During those times when home or office improvements
are underway, a self-storage unit provides a safe temporary shelter for your
valued movable items. Once the work is complete, you then have the option of
removing your belongings from storage and restoring them to their original
positions or taking the opportunity to re-plan your interiors.
To a certain extent,
we’re all collectors of something, whether it’s photographs, tickets to
ballgames, kids’ artwork, or the more serious collector of stamps, baseball
cards, books, or a million other things. Some people collect these items for
fun, possibly to relive nostalgic memories, or because they are a fan. Others
collect as a way of growing their social lives through going to swap meets and
garage sales to engage with similar-minded people. But all this collecting
comes at the cost of a loss room in the home, garage, attic, or basement.
Downsizing to a
smaller home can make your life much simpler and more organized and may reduce
your monthly rent or mortgage payments. However, downsizing can be difficult
when it comes to deciding what to keep and what to throw away. You can utilize
a storage unit to keep important documents, keepsakes, furniture, and other
items you don’t need to have with you in your new home.
Many homeowners find
themselves needing short-term storage units when they need to move and are
trying to sell their homes. Sellers must make their homes presentable to
potential buyers. The home should look spacious enough for potential buyers to
walk through, as well as visualize the possibilities of what they could bring
into the home. This means you need to remove a lot of your own belongings from
your home to make it look more presentable!
