If you’ve got the stuff, we have the space! But we suppose the question is, do you have the stuff?
Trying to decide whether it’s time to rent a self-storage unit can be tough, which is why we’ve already written a couple of blog posts on the subject, like “To Store, or Not to Store?” and “Ask Yourself These Questions Before Storing.” But it seems like it’s about time to touch base on the subject again before it’s time to store summer away for the fall.
When is Enough Actually Enough to Go for Self-Storage?
The answer to this question is different for everyone, so if you’ve read our other blog posts on the subject and don’t think you’re ready for self-storage even if we say you are, then you’re probably right! Self-storage is not the answer for everyone and our goal is not to scare you into renting a storage unit. There isn’t a big bad monster called Boxahemoth that wanders around your house leaving dust-bunnies, cobwebs, and spiders in its wake until you rent a unit … that’s just silly … right?
Our goal is to give you the information and questions that could help you figure out what is best for you. So when is enough, enough?
It might be when you have so much clothing that you’ve got multiple boxes for every season, which is, in actuality, around two in Southern California. When you start hating your clothes because there are so many, but you don’t want to give any away, it may be time to rent a storage unit. You would have very convenient access if that unit was at STORBOX by the way … just saying.
Maybe “enough” has to do with something bigger. Did you maybe buy new furniture but haven’t been able to sell the old furniture? Or maybe you don’t want to because they have sentimental value? We would go for a self-storage unit instead of a portable tent in the backyard where you keep all your old furniture that will sit there for years.
Or maybe you just have so many knick-knacks and small pieces of furniture that it is difficult to walk through your own house. It is true that the “enough” level is different for everyone, but if you have to walk through your place like it is a maze … and it’s not just because you have a small, quaint house/apartment … then it’s time for either a yard sale or a self-storage unit.
