Four Reasons People Use Self Storage Units

Self storage is a great option for those who are looking for some extra space to store away items. Perhaps you’re running out of space at home or need somewhere to store away items that you no longer use. For businesses and homes alike, self storage units can be an ideal way to free up some space and to ensure that your items are stored away safely and securely. Below we list just four situations in which self storage could hugely benefit you.

When your child goes to university

If your child is flying the nest and going off to university, self storage is ideal for storing items that they are not taking with them. While a pre-university clear out is good to get rid of unused items, there are simply some things that you, or they, are going to want to keep. Instead of keeping these items in your home and taking up unnecessary space, it is wise to consider moving them into storage for the duration of their university years. They will be safely stored and out of the way, but retrievable at any time. Plus, you can free up a bedroom to use for guests.

When you run out of space in your home

Sometimes, we simply run out of space. There may be some items in your home that you do not use but do not want to throw away; perhaps you’ll need them in the future or want to save them for your children. Whether it’s an antique bookcase, an expensive bike or a sentimental piece of furniture, considering storage is a wise option. Clearing out your home and putting items that you do not use into storage will free up space and make your home feel less cluttered.

 When you are renovating

 During large renovations, builders will often take over areas of your home. For example, if you are installing a new conservatory or extension off of your living room, this area may be out of bounds for a while. To save your precious furniture and expensive rugs from the mess that can be produced when building, consider using self storage. You can easily and safely store your furniture away while certain rooms are undergoing renovations, ensuring that they are protected and out of the way. Once the renovation is over, you can of course retrieve them at any time.

When you need to store tools away

If you are a decorator, gardener, builder or painter, self storage can be an ideal option for storing away your tools. Sometimes, leaving expensive tools and equipment in your van overnight can put them at risk. Perhaps your trusty garden shed is simply not big enough to house all of your tools. Renting out a self storage unit can eliminate any worries you may have. As you have full access to your unit, you can pick up your tools in the morning and drop them off at the end of the day, resting easy that they are safe and secure overnight.
