5 Ways To Use Self-Storage to Your Advantage
There are so many reasons that people use storage lockers, downsizing, business storage, moving, renovations, long-term travel or just too much stuff. Self-storage makes your life a little or a lot easier depending what you are using it for. Below are five ways that our customers use self-storage to their advantage.
1. For you business
Did you know that self storage can actually help you grow your business? Whether you need long-term storage or temporary storage being prepared can help your business for challenging times and times when your business is thriving.
Free up your workspace and declutter your office so that you have more room to grow. Health care organizations can clear out that old filing cabinet with the files that you don’t regularly need access to and transfer them to a temperature controlled storage locker with easy access for when you really need them.
Are you a realtor that needs staging equipment to sell houses? This is a perfect example of how businesses can use self-storage to keep equipment that they don’t want lying around their house or office.
2. Moving, relocating or downsizing
Everyone knows how stressful moving can be especially if it’s across the country. Instead of trying to sort through all of your belongings and have them all moved within a couple days you can use a short-term storage rental to ease the workload. Put your belongings into a storage locker and take your time transitioning your belongings over a few months. This will also give you the opportunity to unpack at a slower pass so that your home can feel more like a home.
3. Home Renovations
Looking to remodel your bathroom, kitchen or rip up the entire flooring in your house? This is a great time to use a short-term storage locker. Instead of tripping over boxes and moving them from room to room or making a dangerously high pile of stuff in your garage, take everything you don’t need during the renovation and put it into a short-term storage locker.
The time has finally come for you to take that 4 month vacation across Europe, but you're not going to be able to fit all of your belongings in your suitcase and you don’t want to have to buy them all again when you get home. Self-storage is a great option for the long-term traveller. Put all your belongings into a storage locker and they will be waiting for you when you get home. Think about all the money you will save by not paying rent during your travels!
5. Seasonal Equipment
Just because you don’t have a big garage doesn’t mean you don’t have a lawn or garden. Keeping your backyard looking pristine takes a lot of tools and tools take up a lot of space. Lawnmowers, trimmers, shovels, snowblowers, none of this equipment is small. Leave your seasonal equipment in a storage locker and keep what you need for the current season on your property.
