Why Rent a Storage Unit?

Several antique coins in a box and on table with text "Why rent a storage unit?"

At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we’ve helped countless people find the perfect self-storage solutions. We’ve provided storage for precious mementos and collectibles, and we’ve helped people protect a valuable vehicle or piece of artwork. When it comes to storage, you may be wondering if you need it, but more so, you may be wondering why you need it. In this post, we’ll look at three reasons why renting a storage unit can be beneficial.

Create More Living Space

You can pack up those items that you don’t use on a regular basis, as well as any furniture that you want out of the way, and put them in your unit. By minimizing the stuff in your house, you can have more room to move and create more living space in every room.

Keep Things Safe

There are many people out there who collect things, from sports memorabilia and rare coins to artwork and roadside souvenirs. If you have a valuable collection, then you may not have the space at home to keep everything safe. As you collect more items, you’ll need to have somewhere where you can keep everything safe, and a storage unit can often be the best option. We have a variety of sizes to choose from, and you can rent a climate-controlled unit for those items that need to be kept at a certain temperature.

Deal With Life Change

dreamstime_xxl_20256494Life comes with changes, and if you need to unexpectedly move, change jobs, or help out a friend or family member, then you could find yourself needing self-storage. These unexpected circumstances can leave you reeling, but knowing that you have somewhere to store those extra belongings can provide you with peace of mind. You may only need a unit for a short period of time, which is where our month-to-month leases come in handy. You may need to store some boxes or park a vehicle for two or three months, and with EZ Storage®, those two or three months are all you’ll pay for!

There are other reasons why renting a storage unit can be a good idea, but these three are the ones that we encounter the most. At our Pittsburgh-area storage facilities, you’ll find a great selection of unit sizes, as well as staff members and resident managers who are more than happy to help you make the best decision. If you need a way to transport your belongings to your unit, then be sure to ask about our free* local move-in truck

We’re proud to serve the people of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area, and with three locations, you’ll be able to find a unit that’s near your home.
