Renting a storage unit isn’t just an option for storing excess things. Here are four examples of how a storage unit can make life easier.

1. Home Improvement

A kitchen and bath remodel or upgrading flooring can be daunting for many homeowners. Most decide to live in a designated area of their home while these projects take place. Taking advantage of a storage unit during this time will protect belongings from construction debris, increase living space, and help keep items secure.

2. College Students

Living away from home for the first time can be an exciting time. It can also be a headache for students living in dorms or shared housing. Most campus housing now requires students to move out between semesters and for summer break. It can be costly and inconvenient at best. However, storing belongings in a storage unit reduces the need to transport belongings back and forth. It also allows the student to have access to important belongings that will not fit or be safe in student housing.

3. Vacation Rental

Many homeowners are taking advantage of popular home rental websites and apps. There has been no better time tomake extra cash by renting out a room or even a whole house. Some homeowners are even saving money by avoiding high lodging costs and swapping homes with another traveler instead. Either way, using a storage unit gives homeowners access to necessary belongings while their home is rented. A unit is also great for storing items that are only needed for select renters, like toys and baby furniture for a family.

Making a strong first impression is key to a quick and successful sale. For this reason, many homeowners are taking advice from the pros by decluttering, staging, and having their home ready for viewing at a moment’s notice. Begin the moving process and achieve a show-ready home by putting excess items in a storage unit.

Work smart and not hard by getting a storage unit for long or short-term use.
