When you think of a storage unit, do you automatically think of a bunch of junk thrown into a unit that you’ll never see again? Storage units can actually be beneficial when used correctly and thoughtfully. Here are some reasons that you might want to rent a storage unit. 

Large Items

Sometimes you love to go out outside and play, but you don’t always have the room for your toys at your house. Whether you have jet skis, a boat or even a 4-wheeler, a storage unit is a great place to store them when you can’t. You’ll still have easy access to your things, and you won’t have your neighbors calling and complaining about you parking your boat on your front lawn. Make sure you check that your insurance will cover any potential problems that happen to your things while in storage. You might find that you need to increase your policy while you’re storing them.

In-Between Places

When you have to be out of one place, and the other one is ready yet, you need somewhere to store your things. A public storage facility Petaluma is an excellent option for that. You don’t have to worry about getting sucked into lengthy contracts for units, as most places let you rent the unit for as little as one month. Plus, many facilities open early and close late, so you can access your things whenever you need them. 

Too Many Things

If you love the holidays and always go all out when decorating, you should consider renting a storage unit. You probably already took over the garage, the attic, and any other empty space in your home with all of your decorations. When you rent a storage unit, you can have your home back. 

When organizing your storage unit, stack all of the boxes for one holiday together and label them clearly. That way, you can easily find which boxes you need for the upcoming holiday and don’t have to pull everything out to find what you’re looking for.
