Get Organized: 5 Reasons Why You Need a Rental Storage Unit
09 Oct 2017

“I don’t need extra space in my house”, said no one ever. There always comes a point in life where we all start feeling the need for more space in our houses. From our clothes to furniture, to household appliances and old books, there is always some stuff that you don’t have the space for, but at the same time, don’t want to get rid of.

This is when the rental storage facilities come into play. Rental storage are paid for spaces, garages or other portable containers to store additional stuff. You might especially need one if you’re in one of the following situations:

1. You Travel a Lot

Whether it is a business trip or you’re traveling for leisure, if you’re one of those people who travel a lot, renting a storage facility/space is a blessing for you. Rental storage units will store your stuff, save you house rent costs, and keep your luggage secure and free of damage.

It is impossible for one to bring along many of the house items, if your job calls for changing cities often, so make the most out of this facility while you can. I found quite a few storage units in San Antonio that are reasonably priced.

2. You’re a Student

We can totally relate to how you’re always on a budget during your entire student life. So why not prioritize your expenses? Since most of you are probably living in a shared apartment, you will only have so much space to place your things.

Instead of cluttering your space with unwanted stuff, you can rent a storage unit to keep important stuff safe and secure. That in no way means you have any less access to your luggage than you would, if it were right there. Rental storage units have flexible packages that allow you to access your belongings a certain number of times.

3. You Want to Cut Accommodation Costs

If you’re looking for a smaller apartment and are worried about managing your household stuff, then you’ve got one concern shrugged off.

Pack away all the stuff that you will not be needing on an immediate basis and save yourself some space and lots of money. Getting a smaller apartment is no more an issue with the rental storage units that allow you to freely access your belongings at all times.

See for yourself after you do a cost benefit analysis of the apartment rent versus storage unit affordability.

4. You Need Additional Storage Space

Almost half of our belongings comprise of items that we won’t be using in the near future, but occupy the lion’s share of space. If you’re a shopaholic, you can totally relate to the need for additional space at all times.

One tip to fix this is packing away seasonal things and renting a storage unit for the time being. This way, you have nothing to worry about and can simply do the same for the next season too. Whether its the wooden furniture you purchased in 2002, or mattresses you’ve kept for when guests come over, store anything and everything in these units without giving a care in the world.

5. You Are Renovating Your House

While some renovations may take up a few days, other may last months. Depending upon the time span of your house renovation, get a rental storage unit plan that suits you best.

Instead of moving everything to one or two rooms, which is almost impossible, you can pack the furniture up and store it in a rental storage facility for as long as you desire.

No space? No worries. Find a storage facility close to your house and pack away your stuff alongside your worries.

  1. These are great tips! I was also going to add that a storage unit is a good idea if you’re trying to declutter your house to get ready to sell it. Better than putting a pod in your driveway!

  2. Thanks, it is quite informative
