1. When it comes to antiques or family heirlooms, storing irreplaceable items at home puts them at risk to depreciate in value. Because these are not common household items with every day uses, most people find it difficult to find the space in their homes to store these beloved pieces. The garage or attic is no place for these delicate items where extreme temperatures and dust can severely damage or destroy the items. In this case, climate controlled Houston self storage unit is a must.
2. Having a storage unit will increase the size of the living areas in your home. By renting a storage unit near your home, you can transfer all of your seasonal items there, while still having it nearby for quick, easy access. Maybe you have bicycles lined up in a hallway, guest bedding filling up your linen closet, or seasonal decorations that take the place of your second car in the garage. If this sounds familiar, investing in self storage will give you the flexibility to take full advantage of the space in your home for living, not for storing!
3. Top storage facilities can actually provide more security than your home. Modern-day, tech savvy storage facilities will include state-of-the-art security measures that few individuals even have in their own homes. Some Houston self storage companies offer 24/7 color cameras recording, limited gate access, and alarms on every unit door. Their customers feel so confident in the security that some have even stored valuables in their storage unit while they away on vacation.
1. On the other hand, some Houston self storage facilities lack adequate security measures. Theft can be common at storage facilities that fall short in security measures. If you store with a company that does not prioritize security, you might visit your unit one day to find everything gone. If you do choose to get a storage unit, make sure there are cameras recording on the property and that each unit has an individual door alarm.
2. Paying for a storage unit is an avoidable expense. Instead of hanging on to your belongings, try selling them, giving them to charity, or passing them down in the family. Garage sales can be effective as can online sites like eBay or Craigslist. If you haven't needed the items in your unit for over a year and they're don't represent any significant memory or person, you are throwing money down the drain.
