Many people don't know whether or not it's time to rent a storage unit. Self storage units are pretty inexpensive and are available to fit exactly what you need so you can live your life with a little less mess and a little more clarity. Here are 8 signs it may be time for you to get a storage unit.
1. Your car is out on the driveway because it can’t fit in the garage
The definition of a garage is ‘a shed for housing a motor vehicle.’ If your car is sitting in the beating sunlight or enduring the rain and hail while you’re boxes are sitting safely in your garage. It’s time to get a storage unit.
2. Baby is on the way and your spare room is used for storage
Whether it’s a baby or a need for a guest room, if you have a full sized room packed with boxes, get a storage unit. Not only will you have room for the newcomer, you’ll feel much more organized in your own home.
3. You’re moving to a new home
Whether you’re upgrading or downsizing, a storage unit can help you ease the transition no matter the situation. You can move things out slowly and also unpack at your own pace. Downsizing to a smaller home also means you need to downsize your stuff.
4. You or a loved one attends college and is returning home for the summer
Whether it’s across town or across the country, instead of bringing all their belongings with them to store in your garage or paying a housing lease to be unlived in. Renting a storage unit near their dorm/apartment can save so much time and money. Many facilities also give student discounts.
5. You own a small business
Whether it’s for tools, documentation, a lawn mower or display materials exhibitions. The list can go on forever.
