Q: What do people use storage units for?

A: Ah, the million-rond question! People use storage units for all kinds of reasons, from temporarily storing their belongings during a move to holding onto sentimental items they just can't bear to part with. Here are just a few of the most common reasons people use self-storage:

  • Moving or renovating: A storage unit is a great place to keep your stuff until you're ready to move it into your new place, whether you're between homes, downsizing or renovating.
  • Seasonal items: If you live in a place that has extreme variations in temperature between seasons then selfstorage is a great way to store your bulky winter get up.  Amongst other things, people also use it to store holiday decorations, summer recreational equipment (think lilos and loungers) and sports equipment.
  • Business inventory: The use of storage units can be a great option for small business owners who need some extra space to store supplies, inventory or archive important documents. Need to expand? Self storage is perfect and low-risk.
  • Hobbies: Storage units make excellent hobby rooms for those into arts, crafts, model building – you name it. 
  • Sentimental items: Most people find it difficult to part with belongings that mean a lot to them – like their kids’ clothes or lovies, or their granny’s antiques and collectibles. Storage units offer a great middle ground between cluttering up the house and getting rid of your most precious keepsakes.
