It’s a huge step in any relationship. But after countless kisses, cuddles, and surviving a vacation together, you and your significant other want to take it to the next level. If you’re not ready to start sharing a toilet by officially “living” together, then why not start combining your stuff? In a self-storage unit, that is!
Yours, Mine, and Ours
Everybody could use some extra space, and at STORBOX Self-Storage in Pasadena, sharing your storage with your partner is convenient and cost-effective! So when you’re ready to take that step with your winter clothes and his (or her!) hand-me-down furniture from Grandma, remember this advice:
- Have an agreement. Who’s going to pay each month? What kind of things can be stored? Does anyone else have access to your storage? Write up an agreement settling down the terms of sharing your storage space. Who pays what and when, and what happens in case there’s a problem. Better a little caution beforehand than dealing with a tricky situation later. The storage experts at STORBOX should know exactly what kind of issues might come up, and be able to guide you.
- Divide the space evenly. Be respectful of the other person’s things. This promotes fairness and keeps all your items organized. You won’t become frustrated with your partner just because you can’t find your special something hiding under a pile of clothes!
- Don’t forget to talk! Open communication is important for relationships. Be just as clear about what’s going on in your shared storage space.
This is going to be great practice for taking your relationship up a notch. Treat your loved one’s items with just as much respect as you want shown to your own, and everything should be fine. You can even swing by together to drop more stuff and make a date night of it!
What Not to Mix…Yet!
Before you’re completely committed to your significant other, it’s important to protect yourself and keep all private or financial information away from your shared space. And as we said before, make sure you know who will have access to the unit. If you want to store some “fun” underwear, be sure his mom won’t be dropping by to pick up those photo albums she loaned him!
Whatever your storage needs, STORBOX can help. So grab your sweetie and pack the truck (if you don’t have a truck, we provide one for you depending on the size of your unit!) and start “storing together.” Our units are available to customers 358 days of the year, since we only take 7 holidays! Call (626) 407-3439 today to see why self-storage is right for you.
