Exploring Myths Of Self-Storage

You may have heard people talking negatively about self-storage in the past. Horror stories where items were stolen or returned damaged. Perhaps your parents told you it was too expensive, a waste of time and inaccessible. However, these are all myths of self-storage’s past, as storage facilities and services have significantly improved. So today, let’s set the record straight!

Lack of Security

Using back to base security, self-storage facilities have never been safer. With alarming and security cameras, you can be sure your unit is protected every hour of the day.

Temporary Storage Is A Renovators Dream

Redesigning a home can be an incredibly rewarding experience. However, when completing large construction jobs that require changing the walls and floors of a home, temporary storage can be a renovator’s dream. No one likes working in cramped spaces, and damaging furniture and personal belongings is even worse. Home improvement is stressful enough, so why make it harder for yourself?
We can see it now. You’re painting the living room roof and your grandmother’s fine china, while covered, is at risk of being knocked over. Or perhaps you’re worried about the art you acquired from your last visit to Spain being damaged. Maybe you’ve had a rough month and you have some general security issues about the strangers in your house and what to do about your valuables. Even if you’re doing all the renovations yourself – which is challenging and hard enough! – finding the space for tools, materials and other items can seem overwhelming. Whatever the reason, take the stress out...
