Should You Get a Storage Unit?

It’s a common conundrum: should you trash your treasures or arrange for an extra storage unit? The answer to this question is deeply personal because it depends on your circumstance and preferences. However, we’ve noticed a few trends among those who go with a storage unit – and those who don’t.

Here’s what the people who choose storage units over the dumpster have in common:

  • They don’t want to give up their space-consuming hobbies.
  • They’re making a temporary move or are in a transitional period.
  • They’re concerned about cluttering the landfill.
  • They ran out of room for cherished seasonal or sentimental items.
  • They were overpaying for retail or commercial warehousing space.

If any of these statements ring true for you, then the answer is clear: you should definitely get extra storage space.

What a storage unit can do for you

Leasing a storage unit can provide the extra space you need for your life, interests, and circumstances. Securing extra storage means that:

You won’t have to give up your space-consuming hobbies.

Hobbies such as arts and crafts, DIY projects, photography, music, and camping can come with a lot of space-consuming gear. But a lack of storage doesn’t mean you have to give them up. With help from extra storage, you can safely and securely store everything you need to keep your heart happy.

You’ll have a safe space for your stuff while you’re moving or transitioning.

Moving comes with many hassles but finding a home for your belongings during transition is the easy part. With clean, safe, and climate-controlled storage units with flexible month-to-month terms, you can pick up where you left off as soon as you’re settled.

You’re doing your part for the environment.

When you’re downsizing or decluttering things can get overwhelming quickly. It might be tempting to dump most of your unwanted items or have a hauling company take them away. Storage units provide an eco-friendly alternative to dumping your items in the landfill. They also provide a cost-friendly alternative to the often high price tag from junk hauling companies.

You can save your cherished seasonal and sentimental items.

The first step to any clutter-free home is removing the things you don’t use regularly. But what does that mean for your cherished seasonal and sentimental items, like décor, photos, or yearbooks? Extra storage space lets you have it all – the things you love and a clutter-free home.

You can save money on retail and commercial warehouse space.

Self-storage is an economical way to reduce or eliminate your reliance on expensive retail or commercial warehouse space. Affordable storage units provide the extra space you need to keep your business on track – without breaking the bank.
