Why You Should Consider Self-Storage and What to Look For

Self-storage units are popping up all over major cities and are making their way to smaller towns. What is the self-storage craze about, and how can self-storage benefit you?

Who Uses Self-Storage?

There are many reasons someone might want to use self-storage.

Moving

Whether moving down the street or across the country, relocation timelines don’t always align. You may be stuck in temporary housing, but self-storage keeps all your possessions safely in one place until you find your new home.

Decluttering

You don’t have to be sentimental to accumulate many possessions over a lifetime. But sometimes those possessions can clutter your everyday living space. Self-storage is an excellent way to save the possessions you cherish while having a clean and clutter-free living space.

Life Changes

Self-storage can help with many sudden or planned life changes.

  • Divorce: You may temporarily need to store your possessions while you find a new home
  • Retirement: You may want to travel more or downsize to a smaller living space
  • Inheriting an estate: You may suddenly inherit many possessions and need time to sort through them.

Vehicle Storage

One of the biggest risks to owning additional vehicles is where to store them. With self-storage, you can store just about any vehicle! Boats, RVs, cars, trailers, and motorcycles can all fit in a vehicle storage unit.

Apartment or College Living

You may be in a smaller living space and temporarily need extra space for your possessions. Or perhaps you are studying abroad for a semester and need to store your items. Self-storage is the perfect solution!

Home Renovation

Renovations can be excruciating and slow. They push furniture and decorations from a room or two and clutter the whole house. Rather than fight the chaos, use temporary storage to make living with renovations easier!

Military Living

Deployment and relocation can occur several times a year for active military families. Self-storage helps keep their possessions all in one spot.

What to Look For in Self-Storage

With so many self-storage units available, how can you spot a quality self-storage unit over an average (or poor!) one?

Security

Security is top of the list because you want to ensure your items will not be stolen, lost, or damaged. Surveillance cameras, adequate lighting, and quality locks and gates are essential.

Location

Location is next because if you don’t have easy access to your possessions, you won’t use them! Choose a location that is near your home.

Cleanliness

Self-storage facilities that take pride in the cleanliness of their units are a good indication that your possessions will remain in their original condition.

Price

Prices can vary depending on amenities and the size of the unit. Be cautious of cheap self-storage and aim for average pricing.

Customer Service

Quality customer service is key to ensuring your possessions are safe and secure.
