What’s The One Thing You’ll Never Get Rid Of?

Room filled with boxes and containers filled with personal items and text "What's the one thing you'll never get rid of?"

At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we understand that there are some belongings that you never plan to get rid of, no matter how old or used they become. You may have a family heirloom that was passed down to you by a parent or grandparent, or you may have purchased a rare item that can no longer be found in a store or on the internet. Whatever the case may be, if you have something that you’ll never get rid of, then a self-storage unit could be the best option for keeping it safe.

Putting It in Your Will

dreamstime_xxl_75876373Family heirlooms often occupy a special place in your heart, since you likely tie a certain memory to a certain person through the heirloom. It might be a piece of furniture or a piece of jewelry, but whatever it is, your plan is to put the item in your will so that it is passed on to the next generation of your family. You can also leave instructions that the item is never to be sold or given away, and you can impress upon your family the importance of the heirloom and why it’s so special. You kept it for several decades, and you’re hoping that your family will do the same.

Putting in Your Sweat Equity

You may have a belonging or piece of property, such as a vintage car or motorcycle, that you restored from the ground up. You put a lot of sweat equity into it, and now you plan on enjoying it for the rest of your life. Classic car restoration may be your choice of how you’re going to spend your retirement, and you have no plans to sell the vehicles that you bring back to life. Having a storage unit will allow you to protect a vehicle that is complete, while you work on another one in your garage.


Protecting Your Investment

Perhaps you purchased a piece of artwork or a one-of-a-kind item several years ago that has now increased greatly in value. You knew that your purchase would be a solid investment, but you knew that the payoff wouldn’t be as large as possible until many decades had passed. You have no plans of selling the item now, but you do want your children or grandchildren to sell it when the time is right. You’re planning for the future and one of the best ways to protect your investment for the future, especially when it comes to physical property, is to put the item into storage. Doing so can reduce the risk of damage, and with a climate-controlled space, you won’t have to worry about any fragile or sensitive materials breaking down over time.

At EZ Storage®, our team is always ready to help you find the right self-storage unit for that one item that you never plan to get rid of. With four locations across the greater Philadelphia area, you can find a space that’s close to your home or office. Once you’ve rented a space, you can access it on any day of the year.
