Compared to other options such as renovating an existing building or renting additional rooms, self-storage units provide an economical alternative for people and businesses wishing to keep their assets and belongings in a secure location that’s protected from the environment.

But beyond the financial considerations, there are several reasons why increasing numbers of people are now using a self-storage unit as an extension of their personal or professional space. Here are seven of the main ones.

7 REASONS PEOPLE USE A SELF-STORAGE UNIT

1. Renovating Your Existing Home

If you’re carving out walls, adding a room extension, or reconstructing a leaky roof, the last thing you’ll need on your carpets, furniture, and appliances is an added layer of dust or building debris.

During those times when home or office improvements are underway, a self-storage unit provides a safe temporary shelter for your valued movable items.

Once the work is complete, you then have the option of removing your belongings from storage and restoring them to their original positions or taking the opportunity to re-plan your interiors.

2. Moving to a New Home

In a complex property market, selling up and moving to a new location isn’t always a straightforward process that can be accomplished in a day. Delays often occur, and without a fall-back option you could be left in a real dilemma if your belongings are set to go, but your new premises aren’t yet available.

Self-storage provides a way station for holding your items until such time as you’re ready and able to move them into their new home with the added bonus at Think Secure Storage of being able to access your goods 24-hours a day, 7 days a week!

3. Changes in Relationship Status

When terminating a personal relationship in which cohabitation is involved, it’s often the case that one partner or the other may desire (or even be legally required) to leave the common residence and find alternative accommodation.

On the flip side of the relationship coin, partners forming a new relationship may be in a hurry to leave their existing accommodations and set up house together as quickly as possible.

Either way, a self-storage unit provides a secure resting point for any valued personal items which can’t be relocated immediately.

4. A Safe Place for Equipment or Vehicles

A self-storage unit solves these problems by providing the space and protection necessary for holding items that aren’t required on your travels. And rental contracts may be negotiated for whatever length of time is most convenient for the duration of your trip.

6. Storing Business Inventory or Archives
