Self-Storage Guide: A Fun And Lighthearted Guide

Oh, self-storage. This magical place is where we store our excess stuff when our homes are overflowing. Like a vacation but without the postcards check this out. Let’s take a look at this strange world and find out more about it.

First of all, choosing the right storage place is like dating. You don’t want to be too far away so that visiting your grandmother feels like a trip. But you also don’t want it so close you have to drive there. Like in dating, the way you look is important. You wouldn’t keep your valuable comic book collection in just any place, would you? You’ll need somewhere that is clean, dry and does not look like something out of a horror flick.

Let’s discuss climate control. The goal is not to be fancy. It’s to prevent your vinyl record from melting or your antique furniture from becoming home for mold. Spend the extra money on climate control when storing things that are susceptible to damage from temperature changes. You can think of it as an insurance policy for your items.

Oh, boy! It’s a big deal. You want your high-school yearbook to be safe, right? Search for areas with adequate lighting, cameras all over (really, everywhere) and gates that lock. You get extra points if there are security guards, or at least an intimidating cat.

Here’s the interesting part: sustainability. Yeah, you heard me right. How green can you get with all the boxes piling up in town or out of town? Some storage units are installing solar panels and LED lights on their roofs. However, they are usually not occupied because no one is there on a Friday evening.

Don’t forget why you’re here. Life is full of curveballs, wrapped in packing tape. Perhaps you are moving home (again), and your spare room, aka “your personal museum”, needs to be cleared out. When we are faced with the “Oh no, what do I do?” moment, storage units allow us to breathe.

For those looking to think outside of the box, such as musicians who need a space where they can jam out without provoking their neighbors or artists who want to find solace in canvas and paint, storage units are often surprisingly versatile.

Here’s a look at the crazy world of self-storage, where memories can be safely stored until you are ready to relive or replace them with new ones. It’s important to choose the right location. Treat your things like they are on holiday. You could also stop by from time to time; I’m sure they miss you.

In essence, (because abruptly ending things isn’t really my style), sorting through piles in the home can lead to an unexpected decision of renting storage–a choice that combines practicality with sentimentality. The unpredictable nature of life is reflected in these treasures, which are protected by metal. They are called back into action.

You can also keep inflatable dinosaur costumes in self-storage. Get comfortable with the basics.
