Top Reasons for Using Self Storage

Top Reasons for Using Self Storage

You may not know it, but you too can benefit from renting a unit or series of units in a self storage facility. Many who utilize this popular option for gaining just a little extra space do so for a variety of reasons, both big and small, and for both personal and business uses. While your space may feel cluttered now, and you may have almost forgotten what it feels like to not be hedged in by so much stuff, a self storage unit can free up your valuable square footage and help give you room to organize your home or business.

Popular Uses of Self Storage

Whether you ascribe to the trend of minimalism or not, many people enjoy the benefits of decluttering their space when they use a self storage facility. By removing what is not immediately necessary in their homes, be it family heirlooms, holiday decorations, or seasonal sporting equipment, storage unit renters find themselves regaining a bedroom, a garage, or even the curbside appeal of their house. For businesses, a self storage unit can help better manage inventory or overstock, or even safely store business vehicles when they are not in use. Other popular uses of self storage include RV storage over the winter, or storing personal and household items during extended travel, when between residences, or during large home remodel projects.

The Benefits of Self Storage

When you have a surplus of things in a too-small space, it can be very difficult to keep your things organized. Self storage units provide the opportunity to create an ordered system of your things and to maintain the quality of an inventory. This benefit is essential to businesses, but can also be helpful to any person with a collection or valuable seasonal items, like fishing gear or ornaments, that tend to become damaged or broken when inappropriately stored. Self storage can benefit seasonal or infrequently used items in another way: they provide flexibility of access. Many storage facilities provide year-round, 24 hour access so you can retrieve your storage items whenever you need, or store them for only a short duration if you need. In addition to easy-access, renters can expect reliable self storage security. With locks on the units only the renter can access, gated facilities with code entry, substantial lighting and security cameras, and staff on-hand to handle issues or questions, in many ways, self storage units are more secure than most homes and businesses.

If self storage sounds like the solution you’ve been looking for, it’s time to do your research to find the facility that fits your needs. Be sure to consider the convenience of its location to you, the level of security and staffing you are comfortable with, and the variety of unit sizes that can accommodate your growing or diminishing storage needs.

Storing your Summer Toys

Summer is coming and it is time to get outside and play. The water, mountains, and roads connecting you to your next adventure are waiting for you. It’s a great time to get your gear ready, update it, and maybe make a few new purchases.  It is also a good time to think about where all your summer toys can fit.  Self-storage facilities provide terrific storage options for RVs and boats, in addition to climate-controlled indoor storage for gear, kayaks, and skis/snowboards.

RV storage

Finding a place for your RV can be tough. A friend will always offer to let you store it at their place, but the logistics never quite work out. Other options include expensive lots, and of course, the driveway. That’s the short list. Did you know that self-storage facilities also include RV storage options?

Storing your RV at a self-storage facility is extremely convenient and available at a low price. Features could include covered parking with a paved concrete pad, service areas for washing your RV, dump stations, and gated access with video surveillance.

Boat storage

Boats are cumbersome out of the water. They do not fit easily in most places, including driveways. Often the choice is between using up multiple functional spaces or boat storage. Alternatively, you can look to self-storage as a way to store your boat year round. You can store boats up to 40 feet in a space that is easily accessible and safer than at home or another unsecured property.

Kayaks & Outdoor Gear

Everyone who has adopted an outdoor activity quickly realizes the astonishing amount of equipment available to facilitate every aspect of that activity. While you may not need the most collapsible, lightweight product in every scenario, gear makes many outdoor activities accessible. From backpacks for hiking to fishing equipment to kayaks for water exploration, gear lets you do the activities you love the most. It also takes up a lot of space.

Stop dealing with unorganized gear all over the place and get your gear organized in a storage facility. Self-storage spaces are large enough to fit all of your gear easily and in an organized manner.  It makes it so much easier to prepare for weekend getaways when you know where everything is, and it is easily accessible. Get out and adventure more by storing your gear in self-storage.  Contact Abba Self & RV Storage today to learn about the variety of storage options we have available meet your needs.
