Self Storage Can Ease the Stress of Life-Changing Events

Over the course of a lifetime, you experience all sorts of stressful life events—some good, some bad, some planned and others unplanned—and any of these could leave you wondering what to do with your stuff. Self storage offers the perfect solution for easing the stress of all types of life events. Here we discuss the most common stressful life events and self storage can ease the transition.


Divorce is stressful on so many levels. Divvying up belongings, and perhaps moving out of a shared household space, is especially difficult. Self storage alleviates some of the uncertainty by offering a safe and accessible place to store your belongings on a short- or long-term basis as you relocate. With the right self storage solution, you’ll only pay for the storage time you actually need without being locked into a long-term lease.

Sending a Child to College

Sending your child away to college is a bittersweet moment filled with both excitement and sadness. But with a self storage unit, you can ease some of the stress with by using it as a secure place to store childhood belongings. With so much to prepare for, you may not have enough time to sort through furniture, books, clothing and memorabilia. Having these items close at hand in your self storage unit enables them to be easily retrieved for transport to a dorm room or off-campus housing. Self storage provides a convenient storage space for college furniture and other items during summer breaks so your house doesn’t become cluttered with extra stuff!

Empty Nest

As children leave the family home permanently, parents enter a new phase of life. Many empty nesters decide to downsize their homes or use their children’s former bedrooms for other purposes. As a result, heirlooms and other important items may not fit in a smaller apartment or home—or you may need a place to store items you’d like to keep but don’t have room for anymore. Self storage is the perfect place for items you may wish to pass along to your children or bring back to your home in the future.

Work Relocation

It’s never easy being uprooted for a job transfer. In addition to finding a new home and a school for your children, household belongings often have to be hastily packed up. Self storage can ease a work relocation by offering an affordable, secure place to store your possessions while your current home is being staged for sale and until you find a new home in your new city.

Starting a Family

Nothing is more exciting than starting a family—or adding to it. But preparing for a new child can also be extremely stressful. Furniture may need to be cleared out of your home to create space for a nursery or play room. Some toys and baby items may not be needed until the child is older. And if you’re planning on future children, you’ll need space to store hand-me-downs. Self storage offers the perfect solution for growing a family!
