5 Reasons You Need a Storage Unit

posted by Chris Valentine

Have you caught a glimpse or two around your home recently? If so, are you not all that happy with what you see?

For some homeowners and renters, their residence can be an utter nightmare. From not enough space to begin with, and then coupled by the fact they simply have to much stuff, happiness in the home goes south.


In the event you find your situation similar as to that described above, are you planning on doing something about it?

For many Americans, turning to storage units ends up being the solution they have been looking for.

By renting a storage unit, you can get your residence in a calmer state, allowing you to avoid filling every nook and cranny possible.

So, are you ready to learn more as to why a storage unit might be the solution for your space issues at home?

Clean Out First and Foremost

If you are considering putting items in a storage unit, be sure to clean out prior to signing a rental lease.

The reason or reasons for cleaning out should be obvious, notably that you do not want to transport what is essentially “junk” to a storage center. Given you will be paying each month to rent that unit; don’t pay to have it house items that you really have no need for.

Once you have cleaned out, you can then see what really is needed to go to storage.

In many instances, it may be extra furniture, items from your past that you just are not ready to part, perhaps even files that are taking up space around the home.

With that in mind, you should be ready to rent a unit.

Good Reasons to Rent a Unit

Among the reasons you will want to rent a storage unit:

  1. Space – First and foremost, you might be running out of room at home with all you have. Remember, after you do a notable cleaning, you still might need a storage unit for a short or possibly longer period of time. The last thing you want at home is a place that reminders people of TV shows revolving around hoarders;
  2. Time – By renting a storage unit, it gives you more time to consider what you want to keep over time. Instead of feeling as if you have to make snap judgments on certain items, take a little more time to see what items are truly worth keeping;
  3. Moving – If you may be moving in the near future (or have recently moved), a nearby storage unit allows you to get and keep a number of items out of the way. Unless you are planning on a long-distance move, rentinghonda atv parts from a local storage facility is not a bad idea;
  4. Family – In the event you have a child or children getting ready to go off to college, perhaps even get married, a storage unit can come in handy. This allows you to put some of their stuff away for the time-being, allowing them to get it when they will have the extra space necessary to accommodate each and every item;
  5. Business – Lastly, are you in the process of starting a home business? For the countless Americans running such operations out of their homes, space can be at a premium in some cases. Instead of literally tripping over yourself at each and every turn, having a rental unit allows you to stock up on office supplies and other such needs. If you plan on having clients to your home, you want to convey a professional setting, not want of clutter and being unorganized.

Is it Time to Rent That Unit?

Even though your money situation may be a little tight, there are good storage unit rental deals out there if you know where to look.

Whether you rent or bought your current residence, it doesn’t take long for items to accumulate around the home.

With that in mind, renting a storage unit may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

I used to work for a storage company and unless you have to get a unit you absolutely should not.

1. Most insurance doesn’t cover pest damage. So if your stuff is destroyed by rodents or infested by cockroaches because the person renting next to you left food in storage then your stuff is just gone.

2. Storage companies constantly raise rents. You can sometimes make a deal to lock in a rate for a certain amount of time but eventually it’s going up and up forcing you to move all your stuff to another facility to start the process all over again.

3. Miss payments and lose your stuff. I have seen a lot of good people fall on hard times and had there items sold in auction. It’s a part of the business that needs to be done but it can happen to you.

Seriously if you really need storage you can do your homework and find the best place to rent but you should never elect storage just to declutter
