Why You Might Need Self Storage
There are plenty of reasons a person might need to take advantage of self storage, though the most common one is a simple lack of space. We run through a few other common reasons you might need self storage below.
Home Renovations or Remodeling
One reason you may need self-storage is during a home remodeling project. You might need to move the furniture and appliances out of a certain room, and instead of trying to cram everything into the garage or the basement, you can give yourself some breathing room with a spacious storage unit.
Staging Your Home for Sale
If you’re looking to move, the first thing you have to do is sell your home. And creating an open, uncluttered feeling will make it easier for potential buyers to picture the space as their own. But where should you put all of your extra stuff? A personal storage unit can be ideal in this situation, and you can rent it on a month-to-month basis for as long as it takes to sell your home.
Downsizing or Relocating
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!
Making Space for New Family Members or Family Members Moving Out
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.
When you sign up for service in the armed forces, chances are you’ll be away from home for months at a time — and you may have to depart sooner than you anticipated. Instead of leaving the burden of finding a place for your things on your friends and family, you can place them in a storage unit at one of our convenient and accessible facilities. We understand that military service can take you anywhere in the world at any time, and that’s why EZ Storage takes the worry out of storing your property while you’re away on military deployment.
