- Moving house. The number one reason people use self-storage is because they are moving to a new home. Selling your house and then relocating can be quite a complicated process with delays occurring often. Having somewhere to store your possessions is necessary in a case like this.
- Renovating your home. If you are renovating and re-decorating whole rooms in your house, you’ll need somewhere safe to put your furniture and belongings. This is another reason self-storage is so useful.
- If you need a safe place for your vehicles or equipment. If you don’t have a garage, a self-storage unit can be a great help. Even if you have a garage it can be useful if you need the extra space. I know several people whose garages are so full of things, that they have a self-storage unit as well to put their vehicles in for example.
- Ending a relationship. If a couple who were cohabiting end their relationship and one needs to move out, a self-storage unit can provide a safe place for belongings that can’t be moved immediately.
- You travel a lot. For those who are always in transit and living in short-term accommodation, having a consistent and secure place to store valuables and belongings they don’t necessarily need when travelling can be beneficial.
