A Guide To Storing Your Treasures

Hello, my name is Pete Stone. Over the years, I have met a lot of interesting people and we have exchanged gifts. Many of these gifts are very unique and irreplaceable, with some being custom-made or created by the gift giver himself or herself. The problem is that I live in an apartment that is not very large. My only solution to this problem is to purchase storage space. There is an art to using a self-storage unit that I have discovered. With the right storage techniques, your belongings will last. Because I have learned so much, I have decided to create this blog to share my knowledge with anyone who needs it.

Ways That A Church Can Use A Self-Storage Unit


If you hold a leadership role in your local church, it can be worthwhile to assess the church's storage needs. While larger churches may have ample storage room in the basement or even in a separate building, this isn't always the case for older churches. The result can be a basement that is cluttered, cramped, and not as usable as you might like. You can address this problem by considering renting space at a self-storage facility near the church. Renting the right size of storage unit will allow for the short- or long-term storage of items in this space, thus freeing up more space in the basement. Here are some ways that your church can use this unit.

Storage Of Decorations

Many churches put up elaborate decorations at certain times of the year. An issue with doing so, however, is the storage of these decorations when they're not in use. For example, after taking down the decorations after Christmas, there may be a significant number of large boxes that need to be stored. Instead of taking up valuable on-site space, especially when you won't need to retrieve the boxes for another 11 months or so, you can load them in a truck, transport them to your storage unit, and keep them where they won't constantly be in the way.

Storage Of Furniture

It's also common for churches to store a lot of furniture. For example, your church may have a sizable assortment of folding tables and chairs that are used at certain times of the year. When you have a church-sponsored garage sale, outdoor potluck, or other such events, volunteers will carry these items up from the basement and set up them in the church parking lot or perhaps even a local park. When not in use, these pieces of furniture can take up significant storage space in the basement. Given that you may only need them a handful of times per year, keeping them in a nearby storage unit makes sense.

Help For Church Members

Occasionally, one of the members of your church will go through a challenging time that you may be able to help. For example, if someone is going through a divorce and turns to you for assistance, one way that the church can help is by providing storage space for this person's possessions while he or she gets living arrangements figured out. Instead of the person having to take care of the expense of renting storage space at a time that can be financially challenge, you can provide space in your unit for this church member.
