The Top 5 Reasons for Renting a Self-Storage Unit

There are plenty of reasons to rent a self-storage unit, but listing them all would fill several pages. Instead, we’ve decided to list the top five:

1. Office Space is Expensive

Leased office space is expensive, so it makes little sense to store products or extra office furniture in work areas that can generate revenue. Self storage lets you safely store the following items until you need them:

  • Business supplies
  • Office furniture
  • File cabinets
  • Cubicle dividers
  • Equipment and appliances

And when your self-storage provider offers extended hours, drive up units, and first-floor access, accessing your storage inventory is a piece of cake.

2. Decluttering is All the Rage

We’re not saying you should follow every new trend, but downsizing is one trend that makes sense. Ever since Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, was published, more and more people have realized the mental and physical benefits of decluttering. Self storage helps you declutter by offering a secure—but out-of-the-way—place to store keepsakes and family heirlooms you may want to pass along to a loved one someday.

3. Seasonal Items Need a Home

Everyone enjoys celebrating the holidays by decorating their home. But although they’re in use for just a short time each year, those holiday decorations take up precious space the rest of the year. Self storage gives your decorations and other seasonal items like rakes, camping gear, and sports equipment, a home until you need them. 

4. Self Storage Eases Transitions

A divorce, move, or loss of a family member is stressful. On top of the dealing with the unexpected, you may have the added stress of figuring out what to do with extra stuff. Self storage helps ease the difficulty of storing these items so you can transition gracefully.

5. Self Storage Offers Flexibility

One thing is certain: change is a constant. Self storage offers the flexibility you need when things change. Self-storage units come in a variety of sizes so you can store a wide range of personal and business items, including:

  • Excess office equipment and inventory
  • Furniture and appliances
  • Clothing and uniforms
  • Tools, inventory and equipment

Finding a self-storage provider that offers month-to-month leases means you’ll never be stuck in a long-term contract.

These are some of the most common reasons for renting a self-storage unit. What’s your reason?
