Free Up Space at Home or at Work by Using a Self Storage Unit
It is a common problem to run out of storage space as we acquire more and more stuff, and we find that we have nowhere to keep it. Modern homes and apartments tend to be smaller and more compact, so it is easy to outgrow our space. This is why hiring a self storage unit at a facility such as Stop & Store Fareham has become a popular solution to our storage woes. It is the smart way to store our excess belongings so that we can improve our personal and working lives by staying organised and not being swamped by our possessions.
The reasons why people love and make use of self storage are varied and many. Here are some of the more common ones.
Running out of space at home.
You may have collected a lot of stuff over the years, but you are reluctant to get rid of anything that is in good condition. You may wish to pass them onto your children at some stage, but they may not have reached the stage of owning their own place. In other words, they are not ready to take them on. Setting up a home can be really expensive so they will need any help that they can get when the time is right. So, storing this furniture in preparation for this eventuality makes sense. It may consist of valuable antiques and other heirlooms that have been handed down through a few generations and holds sentimental value to you, which makes it all the more important to find a safe place to store them.
Setting up a home office.
Many of us still work from home as a result of the covid epidemic and the subsequent lockdowns we experienced over the past few years. This has necessitated turning a space in your home, for example an extra bedroom, into your home office, but the problem that needs solving is what to do with your stuff that is already in the room. It is not always advisable to get rid of it because what if you need to turn the room back into a bedroom at some stage in the future. Keeping this extra furniture in your self storage unit will get it out of the way until you need it again.
Relocating to a new address.
Selling your old home and moving to a new address is a stressful time for you. If the dates do not coincide you may be left with a few weeks before you can move into your new home, and this is where self storage can be so useful. Our facility is flexible in that you can store a houseful of belongings even if it is for the short term, until you are ready to move on to your next property.
What to do with your belongings and furniture while carrying out extensive home renovations is a problem that you will need to solve. Whatever steps you take to keep your belongings safe and free from damage while you are busy with your renovations will probably be in vain. Your furniture is bound to be damaged by dust and become scratched and dented with contractors and workmen in your home even if they are careful. You will be doing yourself a favour by placing your furniture into a storage unit and your builders will also thank you. Now they can get on with the job on hand without spending time worrying about damaging your belongings.
Camping and sports equipment.
These leisure activities need equipment, and some of it is very bulky. These may include cycling, kayaking, skiing, golf, and other sports which may be seasonal, and the equipment is only needed a few hours a week. Camping gear may only be used in the summer, and a place is needed to store it for the rest of the year. Renting a self storage unit near to where you live will enable you to collect your equipment as and when you need it. This will also mean that you do not need to find space for it at home. This type of equipment is pricey, so secure storage is essential. It will be safe in a storage unit such as Stop & Store Fareham as the security of your goods that you have put in our care, is our top priority.
Storing your seasonal items.
The colder weather is on its way, and it is time to give your lawn one last mow. The patio furniture needs to be put away for the next few months. If you have run out of space in your shed for your lawn mower, garden equipment, and garden furniture, now is the time to consider hiring a storage unit to keep them safely out of the way where they won’t clutter up your home.
Death or divorce in the family.
Either of these life changing events may necessitate your house to be cleared quickly. But during these sad and stressful times it is not ideal to make snap decisions. Many people who find themselves in either of these emotional situations choose to place their household belongings in a self storage unit. This gives them the time and space to deal with these matters with no added pressure.
