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.

Reasons For Using A Self Storage Facility


Self-storage units come in many shapes and styles. They can be very small, about the size of a large closet, or they can be extremely large and even large enough to store motorhomes and more. They can be upstairs or downstairs, inside or outside, and even climate-controlled. There are a lot of reasons people rent self-storage units, and here are some examples of what some of those reasons can include: 

Temporary storage during a transition

Storage units are most commonly used when people are in a temporary state of transition, such as when they are moving from one place to another one and there is a gap between the time they have to be out and they can move into the new place. They won't have a place to keep all of their household belongings until they can move them in and a storage unit can keep everything together and safe for them for as short or as long of a period of time they need. 

Sudden ownership of many items

Someone can find themselves suddenly owning a lot of new items at once. This can happen when someone in their life passes on and the person's belongings have been left to them. They may not have a place to bring everything to. A storage unit gives them somewhere to keep everything while they decide what they are going to do with it. They can go to the unit and sort through everything while deciding what is going to go where. 

Removal of furniture while a home is being remodeled

Furniture can really get in the way during certain types of work being done in a home, such as a remodel. For example, if someone is having their guest bedroom extended, then there will need to be room for the crew to move around. There will also be tools and materials that will need to be brought in. Plus, this type of work can stir up dust and other particles that can get into the furniture. The items in the room can even create a work hazard when the crew needs to move around them while they work. However, there may not be anywhere else in the home where they can be kept. In a situation like this, a storage unit can really help because all of the furniture that would get in the way can be kept there until the work has been completed.
