The Top 5 Reasons Why It’s Good To Have a Self-Storage Unit


A common misconception of self-storage is that people are storing things they no longer need. In reality, wise business owners and homeowners make use of these units to keep valuable belongings such as furniture, appliances, and home decorations safe. If you need somewhere to store your things without having to worry about theft or damage, then getting a personal self-storage unit might interest you. But what are the benefits to getting one?


While the fear of having your belongings kept outside your home is understandable, make sure when choosing a self-storage unit that everything is kept safe. Ideally, you want to find a place where every individual unit door is alarmed and monitored by an independent monitoring service. These units are equipped with tight and secure locks that only you have access to. Premium self-storage centers even have color cameras digitally record on all properties 24 hours a day to improve the safety of the units, with daily lock checks on all spaces by property managers. You also want to make sure that the storage units you choose have automatic lighting throughout hallways for 100% visibility after dark, and an intercom communication system throughout hallways to contact associates in the retail center during business hours if you need help for any reason, at any time.

For Business

Wise business owners make use of available space to keep stocks of their products at a secure location. Storage units can be used for those with business establishments like shops nearby, making reaching for additional stocks of a product easy instead of having a customer wait for a couple of days. On top of that, business owners can even keep older furniture, files, and display items that are no longer in use but are still valuable.

A Home That Is Up for Sale

Getting your home ready for sale is easier said than done. It’s hard to clear out everything especially if you have a lot of furniture. But getting a self-storage unit makes packing easier since you get to have a place to keep all your belongings safe and sound. This clears out your old home and makes it ready for viewing for any potential buyers.


Moving to a New Home

If you’re moving to a new home, it can be a headache coordinating your belongings for the move. Movers might not be able to take your furniture in their trucks and bring it over to the new home on the best day possible. But with a self-storage unit, you can prepare your belongings for the move and even get the movers to get your things from your storage unit instead of your old home.

Managing A Home Renovation

Renovating your home can be a nightmare with all the clutter around the house. Even with the right tools such as corded power drills or hammers available for a home renovation, the job will be harder if furniture serves as an obstacle for you. This makes self-storage a valuable asset in clearing out a home if you’re planning a home renovation. This makes painting the house or making repairs indoors more convenient and efficient.


Self-storage units are a convenient way to keep your belongings with safety and security in mind. If you’re looking for a place for your furniture or appliances that you’re no longer using, then they can be extremely useful. It’s also built for those who are about to move to a new home, for business owners, or those who still want to keep sentimental objects but don’t have enough space at home.

    Having a storage unit sounds like a great idea. We are actually moving in the near future, and storing our stuff in a unit until the movers can pick it up would be awesome. That would save us all of the coordinating pains we were anticipating, since we’re leaving on a Sunday.

    My husband and I are getting ready to move out of our apartment, but the problem is that our new place won’t be ready when we have to be out. I like how you pointed out that when it comes to using a storage facility that it will be a good way to prepare our belongings and make sure that everything is where it needs to be. This is good to know so that we will be able to find one right away.

    I can see why we might need a storage unit in the future. We’re hoping to remodel our entire kitchen and living room in the near future. Like you said, the clutter in those areas will make it hard, so maybe we should store it away for a while.

    My husband and I have been wanting to sell our house, and we never considered getting a storage unit to hold all of our belongings until we sell the house. It would be really nice to clear out our house better for potential buyers! It would make it a lot less cluttered. Thank you for the suggestion!

    I’m moving to New York next year for my new job and I wanted to be sure that I prepare as best as I can for the move. I agree that buying a storage space would be a good idea so I can have a safe space to leave the stuff I can’t yet take with me. Be sure to not cram everything in there though, sell what you really don’t need or even donate them to charity.

    I like that you mention that storage units are a great option for those getting ready to move or sell their home. It can take care of the extra stuff that you have so that your home looks more presentable to potential buys. My husband and I are getting ready to move soon, so getting a storage unit seems like a good choice for us.

    My wife and I are thinking about using a storage unit while moving, but we aren’t sure if it’s worth it or not. I like your point about how there is usually 24-hour surveillance cameras and daily lock checks though. This would make me feel much better about leaving my valuables there.

    I thought you made a good point how using a self storage unit during a home renovation could be helpful. You mentioned that this helps reduce clutter which can make your project go quicker. I’ll definitely consider this since I’m looking at getting my kitchen renovated soon.

    I appreciate how you mentioned that people store things that they need and use in a self-storage unit. Having a unit that has some kind of self-storage CCTV monitoring system would probably be good. We’ll have to be sure to do that when we store our son’s stuff when he comes home from college.

    I really like how you list many of the benefits of using a self-storage unit. What you mentioned about managing a home renovation is a genius idea. I think my wife and I should really do that because we are thinking of remodeling our home and we don’t know where to put all of our furniture. Storing it in a storage unit while we get it remodeled would be a good idea.

    I think that the use of a storage building while having your home up for sale. We find that people sell their homes faster with out all of the extra stuff, bonus that a lot of items are already boxed up and ready to move after the sale.

    I liked that you mentioned it would be a good idea to have less clutter in your home by having a self storage unit during a renovation. I never really thought about using a storage unit quite like that. It would be a really good idea, especially since we will be renovating a couple rooms next month.

    I like how you point out that it’s convenient to have a self storage unit when you’re getting your home ready to sell. My sister and her husband are moving next month, and they have a lot of clutter and random things in their house. It’s a great idea for them to store some things in a storage unit for a while so that they can start showing their home to potential buyers.

    These are some great tips for storage. I like how you said that moving into a new home is grounds to rent one. We’re moving soon, and I think we’ll need some extra storage space for a while, so I’ll look into this.

    My dad has a lot of supplies for his business and it’s taking up space at home. It was suggested here to have a storage facility to keep the stocks of the products. Furthermore, it’s advisable to go to a trusted storage facility for quality service.

    Thanks for pointing out that you can use a storage unit when moving to a new home to avoid scheduling conflicts with the moving company. My husband and I are going to move a few cities down to shorten his commute, and I’ve been brainstorming ways to make the move as easy as possible. I like the idea of preparing everything beforehand and having the movers pick it up from the unit, so thanks for suggesting it!

    I liked what you said about how business owners can use storage units to keep additional stock of product nearby that can’t be stored onsite. My cousin is running a small business and the store doesn’t have any storage space for the holiday product lines, so he’s considering other places to put it. Thank you for the information about how he can put older items and furniture there to make space or put the product in an easily accessible place.
