Top Reason for Needing a Storage Unit

Self Storage Units have become increasingly popular over the last few years with more and more people turning to them to provide the extra space they need.

Here are the most common reasons why people are using Storage Units:



More and more often people have to move out of their old home before moving into their new home to avoid losing the sale. If that is the case and you have nowhere to store your belongings, a self storage unit is the ideal answer.  If you have decided to downsize but don’t want to throw away or sell some items just yet, a storage unit will help while you decide what to keep and what can go.


No Space at Home

Many people are reluctant to cast aside belongings they no longer use especially when they are in good condition. They want to hang onto things “just in case” or they are planning on passing them on at some point but have run out of storage room at home.




Renovations make a huge mess in your home with contractors in and out and all the supplies needed, so many people move furniture and breakables into storage and out of the way to avoid damage. It also gives the workers more room to do the job properly.



If you are expecting an addition to your family, you may need to convert the spare room into a nursery. You don’t want to get rid of the spare bed and furniture because you will need them in the future so putting everything in storage is a great solution.  It is also a great place to store baby gear you want to save to for your next child.



Seasonal Items

If you are feeling overwhelmed by all your belongings, renting a storage unit is an excellent way to preserve items that are only used for specific season like summer and winter. It also minimizes clutter in your home or garage.
