When You Run Out of Room for the Remodel, Portable Self Storage Might Help

Portable storage

When I was younger my father had a collection of very old board games, baseball cards, and collectibles. He kept them on the top shelf of his closet, but over time they overran the closet. Then they overran the bedroom. The day finally came when it was time to sell all of those items and we had to look into portable self storage just to have enough room to sort through everything. Suffice to say, the rest of the house had a clutter issue as well.

After having made use of these pods, which can conveniently be located on your own property, I have to say that there are two very big reasons that they are perfect for any clutter, or remodeling event. If you are weighing your options between offsite self storage facilities, and onsite self storage pods, the pods are an excellent choice for reasons of both safety and convenience.

  • Safety.
  • Many people find themselves playing host to a relative or a friend going through a hard time. Many people then also find that they do not have enough room to accommodate all of the personal items that come with their relative or friend. Having onsite, temporary storage, can be an ideal situation to hosting your temporary housemate and also keeping your house free of hazards. Trip and fall, fire, and allergy hazards abound when you get surrounded by stuff. You should also consider the safety of your collectibles. Having a safe place to store them is important to maintaining their value.

  • Convenience.
  • If you are doing a remodel, keep in mind that offsite facilities will not be very useful. If you need to have odd hour, and inconsistent access to your household items, then the pods are perfect as they can keep your goods secure, dry, and close to hand. Any big organizing, clean up, or remodeling project will be easier with a portable unit that you can go and access at any time.

Self storage facilities are a huge business in the United States, with approximately 48,500 facilities in existence towards the end of 2012. Worldwide, there are about 59,500 of these facilities, making the United States a great place to have a lot of clutter and too little space. Having the option of storing your furniture or collectibles in pods close to your house is particularly useful for issues of safety and convenience. Read more like this.
