Five ways self storage can benefit your life

Have you ever had one of those moments when you looked around your home and wished you had just a little more room? Perhaps it was the time you had to struggle to open an overstuffed kitchen drawer? Or when you opened your closet, and half of your clothes tumbled out as you tried to get ready for work?


Whether you’re tired of living in a home of cluttered chaos or hate not having enough room in your garage, the need for self storage is everywhere. If you’re unsure if self storage is for you, these are the top five ways self storage can benefit your life.



  1. Self storage helps you stay organised

Unless you’re Marie Kondo or a minimalist ninja, clutter is just another part of everyday life. The key to preventing clutter from taking over your home is organisation and removing unnecessary items. A personal self storage unit allows you to free up valuable household space while still keeping those unessential items safe and nearby when you need them.


  1. Self storage promotes healthier living

From tiny homes to a general downsizing, the minimalist lifestyle has proven mental health benefits. Studies have shown that living in a cluttered home triggers anxiety. This anxiety can negatively impact your mood, sleep cycle and overall mental health. Storing your additional furniture, kitchen appliances, seasonal clothes, and knick-knacks away from your personal space allows you to create a calming environment without giving up your treasured belongings.


  1. Self storage is great for those ‘life happens’ moments

Let’s face it, life happens. Between university, marriage, babies, a sudden loss, or a big move, your life is constantly changing. A self storage unit provides all the space you need as you transition from one life chapter to the next. Are you moving your parents into your home? Pop extra items into your unit. Getting ready for university? Securely store your possessions between semesters. Planning to move home? There’s no need to trip over boxes when you have self storage.  


  1. Self storage provides a secure space for valuable items

Do you have expensive gym equipment smooshed into a corner of your garage? Or valuable sports equipment eating up the limited free space in your home? You’re not alone. While many assume self storage is best for families moving home, smaller units are great for securely storing valuable items you use on a semi-regular basis.


  1. Self storage is a convenient household extension

Free space is a hot commodity, and more often than not, a garage is not enough. If you’re tired of looking at your cramped garage or have a boat taking up the majority of your driveway or yard, self storage is your solution. The best part of self storage is that it allows you to move the excess out of your home entirely, giving you back the space you need to live in comfort.
