5 Reasons Why Getting a Self Storage Unit is a Good Investment

The Value of Self Storage

1.) Storing Valuable Items at Home Risks Their Depreciation in Value

Items like antique furniture, fine art, or china are treasured items that are usually very sentimental and are often valuable. They are also items that most people keep over a lifetime and pass down from generation to generation. Because these are not “everyday” household items; however, most people find it difficult to find space in their homes to store these beloved pieces. The garage or attic is no place for these delicate items where extreme temperatures and dust can severely damage or destroy the items. In this case, climate controlled self storage is a must.

2.) Top Storage Facilities Can Provide More Security Than a Home 
Modern-day, tech savvy storage facilities will include top-notch security measures that few individuals even have in their homes. I’ve never known of an average suburban resident installing color cameras that digitally record 24/7. While having alarms on every unit door is becoming an industry standard, cameras and a third party monitoring service is not a self storage industry standard. Those who do offer these security features (like us!) are leading the industry and are committed to providing the best security possible. Some customers have even stored valuables in their storage unit while they are out of town.
3.) Having a Storage Unit Increases the Size of Your Living Space

By getting a storage unit near your home, you can transfer all of your seasonal items there, while still having it close at hand for easy access. Maybe you have bicycles lined up in a hallway, guest bedding filling up your linen closet, or seasonal decorations that take the place of your second car in the garage. If this sounds familiar, investing in self storage will give you the flexibility to take full advantage of the space in your home for living, not to storing!
4.) Utilizing Storage During a Transition Reduces Stress

According to 2011 Census data, the average person will move 11.7 times in his or her lifetime.  With month-to-month contracts, having a storage unit for overflow or staging during your move is a great idea, and no requires no long term commitment!
5.) Self Storage is an Investment in Peace of Mind

Have you heard? Clutter and lack of organization in our homes can actually stress us out. When you compare the cost of renting a storage unit to the cost of vacations, spa visits, massages, and other expensive things most people do to relax, it’s a no-brainer that the smart thing to do is to make your everyday living space into a peaceful place with a little help from your local storage facility.
