Self-storage units are often seen as a waste of money because why would you store things away from your home and pay monthly to leave them there? Well, there are quite a few reasons why someone would benefit from paying for a self-storage unit every month. Here are a few:
Moving into a smaller place temporarily – Paying for a self-storage unit is not something you want to be paying for long term. However, if you are moving into a small apartment or renting out a room in a home for a year or less, you should get a self-storage unit. This will allow you to keep all your belongings that you don’t need in your temporary home but will need in your new home.
The cost of the items is high – If the cost of rebuying the items you are storing is much higher than the price of the storage unit per month, you should get the storage. The times when a self-storage unit doesn’t make sense are when the items you are storing are cheap and easy to replace later.
Temporary storage through the summer – College students could benefit from renting self-storage for the summer if they are transferring to a different dorm or apartment in the fall but going home for the summer. Getting a self-storage unit would save them time because they wouldn’t have to drag all their stuff home for a couple of months, just to bring it back for the fall semester.
