Self storage is Better than the Basement

Do you feel like your home is bursting at the seams? This is an all too common complaint for homeowners, especially those who have lived in one place for a long period of time. Clutter develops not because of poor organization, but because we are constantly accumulating more things. Often, seldom used belongings end up stowed away in a basement or attic. Not only does this make your home feel smaller, but it makes finding the things you actually need more difficult. The best solution for long-term storage is seeking space at a self storage facility. This approach is better than keeping your belongings in a box in the basement.

Not all storage items are created equal. Some items such as seasonal clothing and holiday decorations need to be relatively accessible in your home. However, old furniture or boxes of keepsakes do not. A storage facility can be used as a long-term option for belongings that you want to keep but do not need in arm's reach all the time. By sorting these out, you make more space in your home for the things that matter - and, they are easier to access. Storage facilities offer secure 24 hour access; your belongings are still available on short notice if you need them.

Most basements are not ideal for storing important items. Dark and damp conditions cause the all-too-familiar musty odor that accompanies things that have been stored for long periods of time downstairs. A storage facility that is dry and climate-controlled is ideal for storage of documents, books, clothing, and other items that are especially susceptible to the poor conditions of a basement. If you are ready to re-gain control of the things you have saved in your home, we can help. Contact us to learn about affordable storage facility options that best suit your needs.
