Chances are, if you’re reading this article, that you are having issues with storage space in your house. It’s amazing how a house that seemed so big and spacious a few years ago is suddenly swimming in “stuff” — every closet filled and every cupboard a mess.
Whether it’s because you added members to your family, took on a new vocation that requires more belongings, or have simply accumulated random things here and there and in every room — sometimes we just need a break from it all!
There are five times that every person could use a self-storage unit to help them get control of their things, without having to completely purge wanted things.
This one is probably pretty obvious, but a self-storage unit can be a life-saver during a major home renovation. Instead of stuffing all of the furniture and belongings into whatever rooms are not being worked on, load it all up quickly and neatly into a clean and climate-controlled storage unit for as long as you need to!
Going through a renovation is already stressful enough–no need to add to that stress by having the rest of your home feel cramped and out of sorts.
Garage Sale Time!
With the weather getting cooler, yard work coming to an end, and the winter months approaching, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about throwing a really great garage sale next spring, or participating in a big consignment sale.
Sometimes we have a lot of stuff that’s valuable, but we don’t need it anymore, and we keep hanging onto it for “one day”. Well, start preparing for that day, today! If you don’t have a lot of extra space for long-term storage of garage sale items, rent a self-storage unit! You can pre-price and organize your items slowly, room by room, before storing in the unit, and the work will already be done for you when the sale day comes!
Selling Your Home
With the housing market picking up in many places across the U.S., the selling of your home can be a big deal–but many people aren’t sure what they can do to help get the top price for their home. Many experts agree that staging a home is a sure-fire way to garner a lot of attention and offers.
There are lots of companies that would gladly stage your home, for a hefty price, but it’s easy to DIY the process with a storage unit. Clear out some furniture to give the home a more spacious look. Pack away your off-season clothes to make the closets appear more roomy and empty. Clear the garage of off-season decor or tools to give it a clean appearance. And the best part is–some of the packing is already done for you when moving day comes!
Many of us are honored and privileged to be caretakers for elderly parents or relatives, a loved one with medical needs, or out-of-town, long-term guests. When this need arises, it can sometimes seem daunting to fit another person or two and their things into our already cramped living areas. Consider a storage unit to free up some bedrooms, without having to get rid of anything long-term.
For the Baby and Kid Years
Like it or not, babies and kids come with a lot of stuff. Many baby gear items are necessary (like car seats), and it seems like the more kids you have, the more stuff you need to make sure everyone is cared for and happy.
Baby and kid gear can be a big investment, and if you’re not ready to get rid of all the baby stuff, but want some free space in your house now that you’re past a certain stage, a storage unit would be a great place to keep it all organized and out of your hair, before deciding if you’re ready to pass it on to friends or sell it.
All of these situations could be stressful or chaotic on their own, but a self-storage unit can help relieve some of that so you can focus your energy on other, more important, issues! Let the folks at Self Assured Storage help you find calm and organization during all your seasons of life. Give them a call today!
