If you are moving, chances are the number of items that were cluttering your home is overwhelming you. Rather than cram everything into your new home, you may be wondering what to do with the excess items.
The answer is simple: Self-storage.
Below we review four benefits self-storage units provide movers.
1. Create Extra Room in Your New Home
Keep your new home uncluttered. When moving in, don’t try to make room for everything. Create open spaces and store the items that you don’t know need right now. When you redecorate, switch your current items out for stored ones to create a new look and feel to your home.
If you’re upgrading furniture and appliances, consider storing the old ones if you plan to use them in the future. This will keep them in good condition until you pass them onto your kids or donate them to a good cause.
2. Keep Items In Climate-Controlled Surroundings
Your belongings are precious to you, which means you care about their longevity. Climate can affect their health. It’s nice when friends or family offer to store items in their garage or basement, but you don’t have control over the conditions that can cause damage.
Look for self-storage facilities that offer climate-controlled units to prolong their use. These units keep your items out of extreme temperatures and humidity. For example, they protect electronics from overheating or wooden furniture from warping.
3. Easily Access Belongings
Select a self-storage facility that provides 24-hour accessibility. This will allow you to obtain items after work, on weekends or whenever is most convenient.
You can easily store and swap seasonal items, such as shovels, snow blowers, patio furniture and grills. It’s also great for your holiday decorations. Keep them out of the way in the offseason, and pull them out when you need them.
4. Enjoy Unique Amenities
Renting a self-storage unit not only helps after you move, but during as well. For example, Security Self Storage offers amenities to make your transition easier. One way is by providing customers with a free valet moving truck (certain restriction apply). We will come to your home and allow you to pack up items for your storage unit.
