Using Storage Temporarily During Renovations & More

storage units

Moving is very exciting but also very stressful. Downsizing or other changes in life may push you to consider different self-storage options. This is where temporary self-storage can come into place.

There are many reasons someone will move out of there current home into another. Regardless of the reason, it is likely that you may not have anywhere to store your things. Self-storage is a great option during and after a move to give you added space and reduce your stress levels. You can secure a storage unit on the spot where you stop in at our location, or if you decide to rent online through our website. If you know you will be moving and living somewhere temporarily until your new home is ready, its best to rent a self-storage unit a month or two in advance. Doing so will give you enough time to go through your things and decide what you would like to take with you. Sometimes you may not have much notice, in times like that you can rent a storage unit and move in same day in most cases. The best thing about self-storage is that it is a month to month lease, no long-term commitments.

You may end up living in a place where all your possessions no longer fit. If you are downsizing from a four-bedroom, two story house to a fourth floor apartment at a retirement community, in that case a storage unit will definitely come in handy to help relieve the stress of cleaning and decluttering. If you rent a self-storage unit you can clean out all the things in your house without having to throw anything away.

If you are staging your house for sale, removing extra items will give prospective buyers the ability to picture themselves living in your house without the clutter or your personal items all over the house. Self-storage offers an affordable way to make extra space in your home without having to permanently get rid of anything. Again, making it easier and less stressful once your home sells. For example: You can minimize by going down a sofa or a coffee table. You can also get rid of those DVD shelves and book cases. This also helps your room look larger.

If you are diving into a home renovation, you will want to protect your furniture from damage. Instead of crowding your basement, garage or other area of your home, use a self storage unit to house your belongings instead. You can empty an entire room (or more) into your storage unit to get everything out of the way. This allows you to tear out walls and carpet, repaint, install new floors, hang new lights and so on with ease. There is no worry of damaging anything if nothing is there to damage. You may even decide that some of your items no longer match or fit into the newly renovated area. If this is the case, you can even buy the new furniture, lamps and art and keep it inside your storage unit until the renovations are completed.

Situations such as divorce or a couple splitting up is unfortunate but not uncommon. When a couple separates, each person may want to hold on to furniture or other valuables but do not have the extra space at the moment. They may even move in with other family members who don’t have the space to house all the extra items. Separations are very stressful and a lot of things take place that are out of your control. Self-storage units are a great solution for storing any items suddenly at affordable rates, and helping you gain some of that control back into your life. You can keep your storage unit as long as you need until you find a new home or apartment.
