5 reasons why people use a self storage unit

As our lives become busier and increasingly cluttered, there have become more and more reasons to use a self storage unit.

Whether that be moving to a new home, renovating, decluttering, working abroad or requiring a safe place to store your seasonal equipment and furniture — at Wilson Storage, we want to help you through these times by providing a complete suite of services. 

Moving to a new home 

Moving house can be particularly stressful. In a complex property market, selling up or finishing a rental lease and moving into a new location can be far from straightforward — especially if it’s over the course of one day.

Whether it’s planned or unexpected, you could be left in a situation where your belongings are set to go, but your new premises aren’t available yet. Without a fallback option, this is a real dilemma. 

Self storage is the perfect solution for this and the ideal way to hold your items until such time as you’re ready to move them into your new home.

At Wilson Storage, we can manage your entire moving process, every step of the way. Whether it’s late notice, or scheduled months in advance, we can take care of it all for you. We offer home estimation, packing and removal so you can sit back and relax.

Renovating your existing home 

If you’re taking on a home renovation, the last thing you want is damage to your carpets, furniture and appliances, but you may not have enough room in the rest of the house to store them away.

During these times when home improvements are underway, a self storage unit provides a safe temporary shelter for your valued possessions. 

At Wilson Storage, we offer a range of storage solutions and flexible contract lengths to suit your needs. Your items will be placed in your personal Wilson Storage unit, which is monitored around the clock — and if you ever need to retrieve an item, you can access your unit 24/7.  

Home has become too cramped 

You may be in a position where your home has become too cluttered, but you don’t have the money to upsize. It may also be the case that you simply want to do a bit of spring cleaning. 

While doing so, you might come across a lot of things that you would like to throw away. However, there will be a few items that you would prefer not to keep at home and yet, just can’t throw away. In such cases, a self-storage unit can offer a solution. This way, you can clear your home and at the same time, have access to your possessions as and when you need them.

A Wilson Storage unit can provide an economical solution to this predicament. Allowing you to reap the benefits of a decluttered home, while also giving you peace of mind that your belongings are in a safe location — accessible 24/7. 

Working abroad 

A temporary opportunity to work abroad may have just come up. However, if you take it, you have all your belongings sitting at home unprotected or, if you’re in a lease agreement, paying rent just to hold onto them. 

Instead of becoming trapped in a costly rental agreement or worrying about the wellbeing of your valuables while you’re away, why not put them in a storage unit instead? 

We have a range of weekly, monthly and yearly terms to match the length of your new job abroad, as well as different storage sizes to accommodate your belongings.

A safe place for seasonal equipment and furniture

Some items you have at home may be seasonal, like ski equipment, gardening tools or camping gear. But these items tend to take up a lot of space at home, especially if you don’t have large cupboards or a shed. 

During the seasons of the year when you can’t go skiing or need to do the gardening, instead of having them clutter your household, a storage unit can hold these belongings until you need them again. 

The same holds true for garden furniture. As summer gives way to autumn and the days become cooler, it’s time to start putting away the outdoor tables and chairs. You may suddenly realise the shed or garage seems a lot smaller than at the beginning of the summer months, and what are the chances you’ve bought a bigger table this year? 

You’re not going to need these furniture items for some time, so putting them all into a self storage unit leaves you with a bit more space in the garage or shed and also helps protect your garden furniture until the spring.
