The Perks of Using a Self-storage Unit While Traveling

Storage Corner | November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

When you plan a trip, most of the time you think about the things you want to take with you.

But what about the things you are leaving at home? Of course there are options.

You can leave them with a friend or relative, but sometimes that can be uncomfortable and awkward, especially if you are not sure how long you will be gone or if you are going away for more than a few weeks. A safe bet is to consider keeping your belongings in a storage unit.

This will give you peace of mind and make it a lot easier if you suddenly have a change of plans and need to stay away for longer.

It might be the best choice available for you, and here we will explain why.

Your belongings will stay safe ❤️

One major concern while traveling is to leave behind things that are expensive or have sentimental value.

Self- storage units can help you keep your things protected from external factors like weather, termites, or mice.

You will also feel at ease knowing where everything is, nothing will be misplaced or get lost, you will be sure your things are right where you left them.

You also have the option of choosing a gated storage facility that provides you with a personal security code so you can have access 24/7.

Travel for as long as you like 👍🏼

Time goes by fast when you are enjoying yourself! If you’re planning to be away longer than expected, you do not need to worry about anything, as you can easily extend your rental period with the storage facility.

Renting a storage unit is the best way to avoid the feelings of uncertainty and awkwardness you could have when you leave your things behind with a friend or family member and have to let them know that your things will overstay their welcome.

Get insurance for your valuable items 🔑

The last thing you want when returning from your trip is to find out your valuable items have gone up in smoke! If you want to take it one step further with the safety of your belongings, there are some self-storage facilities that offer contents insurance as part of the rental period, which can be a great add-on to get if you have expensive things to protect.

As with any policy, make sure to check what is and isn't covered before you sign anything.

Of course this is rarely required, but if needed, it will give you the peace of mind you are looking for.

Don’t limit yourself 🗄

You might wonder “what exactly can I store in a storage unit?” Well, let’s just say you can store from very small things to very big ones, like your car! If you are traveling far away, you are probably not going to drive all the way over there. To keep your car from being damaged by weather conditions like sunny or windy days or even the rain, you can safely keep it in a storage unit.

Everything from your desk or even your living room, can be stored and kept away from dust for as long as you need it.

So don’t limit yourself to just a couple of objects, you can really go big on this one.

So there you have it, keep your things safe while traveling wherever you want, whenever you want.
