Chances are at one point you’ve had to move. Remember how expensive that was? The national average cost of moving is about $1,500. Renting a storage unit before you move can help you organize and reduce stress. By renting a storage unit, you can begin packing early and take your time during the packing process. Many storage facilities also provide you with a moving truck and other helpful amenities like dollies, moving boxes, and protective covers for your furniture. So rather than simply renting a moving truck, rent a storage unit, pack at your leisure, and take advantage of all the self-storage amenities!
2. Storing inventory
Instead of renting out an expensive office space for your company’s overflow, try renting out a self storage unit instead. The average self storage unit costs half the price of renting out a business space—they also do not require lengthy contracts. Have a small home-based business? Renting out a self storage unit is the best way to continue to grow while making sure your home office doesn’t get overrun with excess inventory.
3. Winter boat storage
Instead of paying thousands to store your boat at a boatyard with a dock slip—try storing your boat at a self storage facility. But before you do, make sure to winterize it. And check what type of storage the facility offers. Outdoor boat storage is one of the most popular boat storage options since it is very affordable. Covered outdoor boat storage is another option that you should consider if you live in a climate with extreme weather fluctuations throughout the year. There are also indoor storage options for boats that offer the most protection.
4. Exercise equipment
Treadmills and rowing machines are great in the winter but who needs a treadmill in the summer? No one—go outside and get some vitamin D! Exercise equipment is bulky and can take up a lot of space in your house. Why throw away thousands of dollars that you spent on your equipment just to save space in your home when you know you will want to use the equipment in a couple of months? Renting self storage is a great option for those who want to save space in the summer but create a home gym in the winter.
5. Collectors’ items
Storage units are a great option for collectors who often find their homes overcrowded with collectible items. Whether you collect baseball cards, antiques, or furniture, self storage units are a great place to store your collectibles so they stay in mint condition. Climate-controlled storage and 24/7 security help protect your investment, saving you money in the long run.
Now that you know all the ways self storage can help save you money, put them to work at Secure Self Storage. The premier self storage facility in the Northeast, Secure Self Storage offers a wide range of storage unit sizes at an affordable price to meet all your storage needs.
