Making Space for House Guests or Roommates

If you love having people stay with you, you want to be sure they’re comfortable the entire time they’re in your home. Friends and relatives might come to stay for a few days, but if you have long-term house guests who need to stay for a few months or you’ve found a new roommate who’s moving in soon, you may need to make more space than originally planned. That may mean clearing out a spare bedroom and closet, or rearranging the living room to make room for their furniture. Whatever the case may be, EZ Storage® in St. Louis is here to provide affordable self-storage when you need it most!

Long-Term House Guests

dreamstime_xxl_53536602Life can throw changes at all of us, and if you have a friend or relative who doesn’t have anywhere to live, you may open your house to them. You want to do all you can to help them get back on their feet, and letting them live with you for a few months might be the best option. If you’re clearing out the guest bedroom and need to put some boxes or furniture in storage, our St. Louis metro area facilities have plenty of options available. Our monthly leases make it easy to pay for the time you need, and when your long-term house guest has moved out, you can take your belongings out of storage. Until that time, we’ll keep everything safe and sound.

A New Roommate

dreamstime_xxl_34164463If you live alone at the moment, but have been actively searching for a new roommate, it’s important to be ready once you find one. They may be able to move in right away, and if the house or apartment is filled with your stuff, you’ll have to do a quick job of packing and organizing. You may not have the closet or storage space for all of your extra belongings, and renting a small storage unit can take the stress out of keeping everything safe. If your new roommate has some things they want to store, you can rent a slightly larger unit and split the cost! If you know you’re going to have a roommate in the near future, putting things in storage now can save you from having to reorganize and rearrange things when they move in with you.

An Affordable and Convenient Solution

Even if you love having house guests and roommates, it can put a bit of a burden on your shoulders. A long-term house guest may offer to pay some rent or cover their own grocery bill, and obviously a roommate is on the lease and pays rent every month, but if you’re worried about the cost of self-storage, we can help. We offer a variety of unit sizes at affordable rates, and our convenient facility locations means you aren’t spending a fortune in gas to visit your storage space. Our goal is to make your storage experience as stress free as possible, and no matter how long you need to rent a space, we’re here to help however we can.
