Many people across the country now have the opportunity to rent self-storage containers they can keep on their property. These mobile self-storage containers provide opportunities for people to store items at their leisure and access them without leaving their homes. While you may not have considered them before, these are some of the benefits of having self-storage containers on your property.
Meet Your Seasonal Storage Needs
These types of containers are great for homes that need an extra place to store seasonal items when not in season. It allows you to free interior storage spaces for more practical purposes and spares you a drive to the nearest storage facility to retrieve seasonal items such as:
- Patio furniture
- Holiday decorations
- Swimming pool accessories.
- Snowboards and skiing equipment
- Life jackets and boating equipment
These are all things that won't necessarily be damaged by storing them in the elements when not in use but that can easily get in the way if you try to store them in your home or garage.
Prepare to Move on Your Timetable
Many people rent self-storage containers on their properties as they prepare to move. It allows them to pack away items they do not use as frequently without experiencing the same mad rush as moving day approaches. This includes things like infrequently used serving dishes, seasonal household items, etc.
Even better, you can scale your storage options up as your moving day approaches with additional self-storage containers. Then all that remains on the big day is that these containers are loaded onto trucks and transported to your new home — or a storage facility off the property until you are ready for them.
Store Personal Possessions While Renovating Your Home
You probably don't want to have to drive across town if you need access to your personal possessions during a home renovation. Self-storage containers allow you to store your items as needed during your home renovation, providing easy access to your possessions. It makes it much easier to do room-by-room renovations of your home, moving things in and out of your container as you complete one project and begin the next.
In the United States, there are between 45,000 and 60,000 self-storage facilities serving approximately 9.4 percent of the population. With mobile self-storage containers, you no longer need to live near one of those facilities to enjoy easy access to your storage unit or the treasures it holds for your family.
