There are many advantages to living in an apartment. You get panoramic views, short commutes and top restaurants at your doorstep. But there’s one problem – space. Most apartments are the size of a postage stamp, which means you barely have enough room for your book collection, much less a growing family. But you don’t have to part with your valuables to enjoy the perks of apartment living. Read on to discover why self-storage is your best friend when you’re living in an apartment or flat.
Self-storage reduces apartment clutter
When you move into an apartment, finding enough space for all your belongings can be a challenge. One option is to sell or donate non-essential items. But how do you decide what’s essential and what isn’t? If you don’t want to make that decision yet, consider storing your excess belongings in a self-storage facility. They’ll remain clean, secure and moisture-free – and you won’t clutter up your new apartment. And what if you need to make space for a baby or visitor? The solution is simple. You relocate the items to a self-storage unit until your visitor leaves or your child grows up.
Self-storage provides easy access
Self-storage can help with organisation by providing an exclusive space to store your items that are no longer in use. As mentioned earlier, clutter can leave your apartment messy which can lead to chaos. Storing your possessions in a self-storage unit helps in keeping your apartment tidy and neat. Having everything you don't need in your day-to-day life in one place enables you to easily access them when the need arises.
Self-storage provides flexibility
There are no lock-in contracts when it comes to self-storage. As a result, you have the flexibility to upgrade or downgrade as you need. For example, if you start a business and you don’t have room to run it from home, you can rent a larger unit to store products, packing materials and even a desk. You can even take advantage of business storage facilities, such a dispatch of goods, forklift services and meeting room hire. On the other hand, if you decide to move to a bigger place and no longer need storage, all you have to do is end your contract with 30 days’ notice – no questions asked.
Self-storage can makes or save you money
If you have antiques, paintings or collectibles, don’t give them away just because you can’t fit them in your new apartment. These items can accrue in value, so keep them in a climate-controlled unit until you’re ready to sell them – or move to a bigger place. Alternatively, if you’ve got excess white goods or furniture as a result of consolidating two households, instead of giving them away, keep them in a storage unit in case the old one breaks or conks out. You’ll save yourself hundreds in replacement costs. What’s more, if your living arrangement doesn’t work out, you’ve got everything you need for your new place!
