What’s in Those Boxes?

Grandparents with children in living room with banner text "What's in those boxes?"

Most of us have boxes in our attic, basement, or closets that we haven’t gone through years. They’re labeled with random words such as “Bedroom,” “Toys,” or “Kitchen,” and half of those labels have been crossed out or written over each time you moved to a new place. You might also have a box of childhood mementos that you haven’t looked in for decades, and you’ve forgotten what’s in there.

At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you store those special boxes, or we can provide a space for all those things that you decide to keep once you go through the random boxes in your house. Visit one of our metro-area locations today to get started!


Treasured Memories

One of the best things about going through boxes that have been sitting for years is discovering lost treasures that were packed away. You can come across old photos, old toys, and other items that remind you of your childhood or family members who have passed. You might find something you thought you’d lost or given away.

Once you’ve sorted through these treasured memories, you might have some items that you want to put into storage so that they’ll stay safe for the future. If you have items that are worth some money, then self-storage can be a great option. It can also be good for those items in which you have a sentimental attachment.

A Chance to Give

Going through old boxes also gives you a chance to show your children or grandchildren the things you had when you were their age. There might be some mementos or heirlooms that you want to give to them, and now could be the perfect time to do so.

There may also be some items that you want to give them, but at a later date. They may not have anywhere safe to store everything, and that’s where self-storage comes in. By putting certain things into storage, you can safeguard them until you’re ready to pass them down to the next generation.

Condensing Your Belongings

After you open up those old boxes that have sat untouched for years, you might find that some of them are full of things you don’t need any more. By getting rid of the excess, you can condense your belongings into one or two boxes and place them in your storage unit. If you’re giving things to your children or grandchildren, then you can take what’s left, condense it into a few boxes, and store the boxes for as long as you need.

There are some items that we want to hold onto for as long as we can. We want our family to have them once we’re gone, or we want to keep them around to remind us of earlier years. Whatever the case may be, renting a self-storage unit can be a great way to protect your keepsakes. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we’re here to help you find the ideal storage space.
