If you look around your home and garage and all you see is piles of stuff everywhere, the time has come to make a very important decision. Is it time for you to use containerized storage or do you just need to declutter your home? For most of us, this is not likely to be an easy question to answer as we tend to like to hang on to everything. But the reality for most of us is that buried in all those stacks of junk is likely to be a lot of things we no longer need to hang on to. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before when considering storage solutions.
How Much Stuff Do You Really Need to Store
If your house has reached the point where the clutter has you considering storage to help you cope with the mess, it might be time to consider downsizing. This is a great time to have a yard sale and get rid of as much of the clutter as you can bear to part with. Even though you may still need to a storage solution, you may find you can get away with less. You can use the money you raise to help pay the cost of storage.
Will Using a Storage Building Be Cost Effective?
Cost is always something you should consider when thinking about renting some form of storage. Do you have enough stuff to justify a storage unit or do you really need to declutter your home? Chances are good that even after you declutter you may still need to rent some form of storage, but by downsizing the amount you plan to store, you can cut your costs. Containerized storage offers the most customizable solution possible, so you only pay for what you need.
How Long Do You Need Storage?
Are you looking towards long-term storage for a lot of items or do you just need a place to store your seasonal clothing and other items? If you have looked into renting a storage building but were discouraged, containerized storage can be used to store things like snow skis and heavy winter clothing during the summer months and that inflatable pool and your jet skis in the winter. You may find doing this can free up a lot of space in your closets and out in the garage. Containerized storage can be used to group items in a way that makes sense.
Are You Selling Your Home?
One of the most important steps you can take when putting your house up for sale is to declutter it. Realtors will tell you to “de-personalize” your home by removing clutter, taking down family photos, and getting rid of excess furniture. You can’t simply move these items out to the garage; you must remove them from the property. Many think a storage building is the only option for getting your home ready to sell. But containerized storage can be delivered to your home to be packed there, then stored before delivery to your new home. Using a storage building means packing and unpacking twice.
