Having extra space is something you don’t think about until you really need it. Sometimes you don’t even think of it then. You just keep filling up closets and ramming things into any unused corner. Wouldn’t you like to actually use your garage for your car and your closet for your clothes? Read below for a glimpse into some personal and business related life transitions that prompt the need for extra space. Instead of an expensive, time consuming, frustrating home addition project, think storage – your new home addition.
Picture this. You’re looking around at the clutter, and pondering where you’re going to put everything when:
- you have to make room for a new baby,
- you have to make room for another person’s possessions because you’re getting married,
- you have to make room for the junk your kids are bringing home from college,
- you have to make room for the extra stuff in your home because you’re trying to sell it (the home, not the stuff),
- you have to make room for all of the debris your kids left at home when they finally moved out at the age of 36,
- you have to make room for your broken heart during a divorce and at least half of this garbage has to go somewhere,
- you have to make room for items your parents can’t take to the senior living facility, and
- sadly, you have to make room for the possessions left after the death of an elderly loved one.
Now, let’s look at this picture from a business rather than a personal angle. You may own a business or maybe you’re involved with a community organization or you have a very messy hobby. Again, you’re brain is trying to wrap itself around the situation, and you’re wondering where you’re going to put everything when:
- You have to make room for the paraphernalia you need to run your small business because it’s slowly consuming your living space,
- You have to make room for a backhoe because your HOA frowns on keeping it on the front lawn,
- You have to make room for the pharmaceuticals that you sell because your company doesn’t approve of you storing them in your trunk,
- You have to make room for extra retail inventory because your small brick and mortar store is already overcrowded,
- You have to make room for school and/or sports equipment because you’re the person in charge of the stuff, and
- You have to make room for your antiques/hobby clutter because your friends are beginning to think you’re a hoarder.
Self storage is the affordable solution to these and many more problems, but just like any great idea, it doesn’t occur to you until you really need it. To learn more about your storage options, check personal storage and business storage. Make life easy for yourself and rent an affordable, secure storage unit. It’s way less expensive than a home addition.
