Self-storage is increasing in popularity for many reasons. Using self-storage for a few items or the contents of an entire house gives peace of mind and keeps costs down. There are other compelling reasons to use a self-storage facility.
Here are some of the signs that show you self-storage is the answer.
1. You’ve Run Out of Space
Your home is officially overrun with possessions. You don’t use everything every day, but there are some things you just don’t want to get rid of. You may be holding onto furniture to pass onto your children. Or you have bulky sports equipment you only use once a year. Or you don’t want to part with items because you never know when you might need them again. If you want a streamlined home but you aren’t ready for a belongings purge, use self-storage. It gives you more space and you don’t have to say a permanent goodbye to your stuff.
2. You’re in the Middle of a House Sale
You can’t let the sale of your house go, even when you don’t yet have a property to move into. Move your possessions into storage after you’ve sold your house and stay in rented or temporary accommodation until you’ve found your dream place. With a competitive property market, it pays to be as mobile as possible.
3. You’re Downsizing
Moving to a smaller home? Maybe you haven’t had time to figure out what stays and what goes. You know you need to get rid of clutter but you can’t make up your mind about certain things. Secure them in a self-storage unit and if you haven’t missed them or thought about them in a few months, chances are it’s safe to throw them out.
4. You’re Renovating
Use self-storage to move furniture and ornaments out of your living room while builders construct a new conservatory or extend your property. You won’t need to worry about accidental damage and you’ll have peace of mind that your valuables are secure.
5. You’re Expecting a Baby
Is your family going to grow? You’re moving furniture around and making the spare bedroom into a nursery. But where do you put the spare bed and your guest furniture? If you don’t want to sell or recycle these things because you love them or you’ll need them again, think about self-storage. You can also use a unit when your baby outgrows bulky items like a highchair or cot, but you want to keep them for another child in the future.
6. You Have Tools for Work
Take advantage of a self-storage unit if you use tools for work but don’t have a garage or shed to store them at home. The bonus of storage units is your equipment is totally secure, unlike a shed which is a prime target for break-ins.
When looking for storage Gloucester families rely on safe, professional and accessible premises for their possessions. Check out the range of self-storage facilities to meet your needs, whatever stage you are at in life.
