Imagine you’re the proud owner of a taxidermy collection. But your mother-in-law is a card-carrying member of that most enthusiastic of animal rights organizations—PETA. You once made the mistake of joking, “PETA, huh? Doesn’t that mean People Eating Tasty Animals?” at a family brunch and were subjected to a 45-minute lecture on the merits of veganism. So now that she’s coming to visit your private residence, you have a definite problem: your lovingly stuffed animal heads.
The same conundrum could jump up at you no matter what you collect: antiques, porcelain dolls, or sports memorabilia—the possibility of offending someone is very high. There are times, in order to keep the peace, when you just have to hide stuff. Other times, it’s common politeness. If your Lakers beat that someone’s Warriors in a hotly-contested basketball game—be kind; don’t rub salt in the wound! Put it away for another day. And those clown dolls don’t belong around children. Make them disappear.
Self-storage is ideal for this purpose. It’s quick and low-commitment (most units are month-to-month) and convenient, too. Units can be as big as you need and STORBOX, for example, provides “professional storage counselors” armed with moving supplies to help you set up your space. Depending on your situation, they let you borrow a moving truck. For free.
You may even find that you like keeping your collection apart, in its own domain. Self-storage is a place free from judgment—lots of people keep overflow there, in their private-storage lives. Mountains of unused furniture, things-we’ll-unpack-after-we-finish-moving, complete sets of outfits from the 1970s, etc. Your collection is in good company. Once you’re ready, take it back out, and close it out. Or put something else in. Simple.
STORBOX is a “green” facility, so you can drop that little bit of information nonchalantly into conversation with the mother-in-law. Or appreciate its sustainable nature for your own sake. Having a go-to space can be a peacemaker—or a life-safer, if the Dodgers fans want to start something. Though you can’t hide just anything in self-storage, you can hide most everything else!
