At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we help people every day who need to store things for various reasons and for various lengths of time. We know that when you’re looking for a self-storage unit, you might have several reasons for needing one, and you want to find a location that’s affordable, convenient, and secure. When you visit one of our metro-area facilities, you’ll have access to a number of storage unit sizes, and our team will help you choose the one that’s right for you.
In this post, we’ll take a look at three reasons to rent a storage space. We know there are plenty more, and no matter why you want or need to rent a unit, we’re here to help!
1. Create More Room at Home
A popular reason many people rent a storage unit is to create more room at home. You might be organizing your home workspace or renovating the guest bedroom, and you need to move some things out of the way. Instead of piling boxes and furniture in the garage, basement, or attic, you can move everything into a storage space for a few months.
Perhaps you have someone, such as a friend or relative, who’s going to be moving in with you for an extended period of time, and you need to make room for them and their belongings. Putting excess items into storage can help you create the space you need, without having to worry about the house feeling cluttered.
2. Get Ready for a Move
Moving can be one of the most stressful experiences in one’s life. Even if you’ve moved several times, it can be overwhelming to think about all that needs to get done before, during, and after you relocate. You have to sort through your belongings, pack things into boxes and tubs, and arrange to have your items transported to your new home (or transport them yourself).
If you’re moving on short notice or relocating to a smaller place, it can be beneficial to put some boxes and pieces of furniture into storage. You might already have some of these things stored in your current home, and instead of moving them to your new place, why not put them in storage? This will mean less to load and unload on moving day, and these excess items won’t take up valuable space in your new home!
3. Storing a Relative’s Belongings
There are times in life when you might be tasked with storing a relative’s belongings. Your child might be heading off to college or going overseas to study, and while they’re “moving out,” they still have some things that need to be stored. You have no problem with keeping their items safe, but instead of using the garage or basement, you can put some things into storage.
If you’re in charge of managing a loved one’s estate after they pass away, self-storage can be a viable option when it comes to safeguarding heirlooms and your relative’s personal possessions. You might have to clean out their house and garage, and there’s likely no way you can fit everything into your home or property. By renting a storage unit, you can ensure that things are protected until they can be distributed to family members, sold, or donated.
