Whether you’re moving house in the not too distant future or just trying to declutter your home, you can never have enough space for all your belongings. That is why we see many people make use of self storage.
Take a look at some of the most common items we have found in a storage unit.
We see a lot of different furniture being stored, from dining tables to chest of drawers, however the most common we see is sofas. Whether you have a new sofa and are storing the old one until you sell it, or perhaps you’re decorating or renovating and are keeping the sofa out of the way. Just to stop paint from finding it’s way onto your lovely suite.
This day and age, technology is always changing, and there is always something newer and better coming out. The main issue is when you buy your new TV or computer, where are you going to keep the old one? You may not want to get rid just yet as it could come in handy in future. That’s why storage is seen as the perfect place to keep electronics.
3) Kitchen Appliances
Much like electronics, you will need somewhere safe and dry to store perfectly good and useful appliances.
Perhaps you’re having a new kitchen installed and have purchased some new appliances, but aren’t quite ready to be installed. A dry self storage unit will keep your fridge or oven safe and secure until they are needed.
4) Archive documents and paperwork
Whether for business or personal use, we find a lot of people storing their important documents and paperwork. Self storage is ideal for keeping stuff well protected from condensation and mould.
5) Seasonal Items
Christmas and Halloween decorations are always an exciting thought, and a fun time of year. However they can also take up a lot of space that could be better utilised in the warmer seasons. That’s why you’ll often find decorations and other seasonal items among the most common items found in self storage.
6) Artwork and antiques
Perhaps it’s an heirloom that has been passed down generation to generation. Or perhaps it’s an old painting of yours that you don’t want to throw away. Whatever the reason, artwork and antiques often find themselves resting in self storage
DVD’s and old CD’s, video tapes and records are all often found being kept in storage. Perhaps you have some old family videos with some good memories that you don’t want to get rid of.
Or maybe you still have some records that have some sentimental value from your childhood. Whatever your reason to store, you can guarantee that your various media is kept safe and secure in a lock-up.
Books are often considered very valuable. For students, researchers, writers and professor, as well as the casual reader.
Chucking out old books seems near impossible to imagine, but you may not have enough room in your house to keep them all. A storage unit could be a great option to keep all your old books, hence why they are one of the most common items found in storage.
There are also many other kinds of items we see stored in units, from tools and equipment to business stock. Storage units are built to last and can keep almost all items storage in them well protected.
