Why more and more people are using self-storage units?

Downsizing is the main reason people use self storage, followed by moving. There are a lot of contexts when people turn to self storage, but downsizing is the main reason Americans rent it, followed by moving (downsizing excluded) and needing more storage space at home.

Renting a self-storage is a great solution for downsizing for example, if you have to move into a smaller home quickly, you might not be able to sort through all your belongings promptly. Instead of making hasty decisions you might regret later, put the excess into a storage unit to sort through once the move is over.

Moving can be hard on precious valuables. Any good moving company will guarantee the safety of your most fragile belongings, but with a self storage unit you can take it a step further. By moving your special things into your storage unit, you can get them out of the way ahead of moving day. Once everything else is in place and you know where they’ll go, you can take your time moving these precious items in.

And finally, those that need more space because of many different reasons regarding life style changes as move in with a partner, having a child, declutter a second bedroom for summer guest or turn it to a home office. 

Many different reasons and one great solution is renting a self-storage unit.
