Did You Buy a Fixer Upper?

Inside a home being remodeled with text " did you buy a fixer upper?"

Many people today are looking for their perfect house or that “dream home” where they can live for several years. Others are searching for a fixer upper that they can turn into their dream home, and the cost of a house that needs some TLC can be a bit more friendly on the bank account. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we’ve helped many people who were working on renovating a house, and if you’re in the middle of a remodel, we’d love to help you find the ideal self-storage solution.

No Place for Your Stuff

dreamstime_xxl_22448188Depending on the state of the fixer upper you purchased, you may not be able to live there. Instead, you’re living in an apartment while you work on the house, and if you moved from another house to the apartment, you may not have enough storage space for your stuff. You’re still a few months away from being able to move into your new house, and that’s where a storage unit can be helpful. Our monthly storage leases make it easy to store things for the short term or the long term, and you won’t have to worry about having too much clutter in your small living space.

Working On Your House

Even though your goal is to finish updating your house in few months’ time, you may only be able to work on it in the evening after you leave your full-time job. You may also need a place to store lumber, tools, and other construction supplies. Leaving everything in the house may not be the safest option, but you also don’t want to haul everything back to your apartment each night. With a storage space at one of our St. Louis locations, you can potentially store everything halfway between your apartment and your fixer upper, and with access hours until 9:00pm every day, you can drop things off after you’re done working for the night. You can also get into your unit on the weekends, so when you’re spending Saturday and Sunday trying to get the drywall finished, you can access all your supplies.

Once You’re Moved In

Our team will always help you find a smaller unit for those few boxes or pieces of furniture that you don’t want to store in your new home, and if you don’t need storage any longer, that’s where our monthly leases come in handy. You won’t have to worry about moving into your house in July and paying for storage until December!
