According to the Self-Storage Association, there are approximately 50,000 self-storage facilities throughout the United States. There are also several reasons for using a self-storage unit. Here are the top 4 reasons why!
We all have feelings, some of course more than others. So when it comes to sentimental items whether it’s an old crumpled note or a giant patched up teddy bear we as people can’t help but feel an emotional attachment. So after a full house cleaning, we tend to find a lot of things that we would likely toss away. However, there might be a few incidences that we find sentimental items that we don’t want to toss away but also would prefer not to have around the house. If this is the case, a self-storage unit can be a great solution. This way, you can have a clean clutter-free home all the while keeping your sentimental valuables. It’s a win-win in my book!
You know that saying “A home isn’t a Home unless you’re there?”, or at least something along the lines of that. Well, this rings true when we’re moving to a new home. Often times when we make a move, we’d like to go by the saying “out with the old and in with the new.” But sometimes that crusty old couch or chipped dining table holds sentimental memories of your family and without them, it just wouldn’t feel the same. That’s where a self-storage unit comes in! A storage unit is perfect for the in-between phase during a move. For example, there may be times where we might have to leave our current home for a particular reason while the new home is not yet in a position for a move in. Many of us during this in between moving phase may live with relatives, friends or in a temporary living space. However, moving all your furniture and bulkier belongings with you may prove to be difficult or near impossible. Which is why a self-storage unit would be a great solution to this sort of predicament.
Hobbies are an intricate part of life for a lot of people. Whether it’s painting, playing an instrument or playing sports, hobbies are an important building block for our identity. That’s precisely why it’s important to have our equipment properly secured and stored when it comes time to indulge ourselves in our craft. Especially if you’ve got gallons of paint lying around the house or snowboards and skis taking up half of the garage. A climate controlled storage unit would be the most ideal unit for storing your most precious equipment.
Everyone has their specific interests, likes and dislikes. So when you amplify these likes and interests you’re generally left with what society calls “a hoarder.” Whether you’re hoarding as a hobby or for something that peaks your happiness, collecting and surrounding yourself with things that make you happy is a good thing. If collecting decorative socks or bottle caps bring you happiness all the more power to you. Though you may be labeled as a hoarder I think the happiness you receive from your decorative sock collection can easily outweigh the stigma associated with the term “hoarder”. So now you have shelves and shelves of mint-condition socks all around your house and you’re slowly running out of space to shelve them. So do you do now? Well, one solution is a storage unit. Declutter and free up some space around the house to make more room for shelves! Who doesn’t like to have shelves of socks all around their house!? Word of advice, if you’re hoarding collection is around the house I think it may be a sign to store them at a storage facility. Not only will it look more organized and securely kept in the storage unit, but nobody will know that you’re a hoarder!
