How Can Self Storage Help You Declutter Your Home?
June 30, 2017

At a time when space is at a premium across Australia, self-storage is a more relevant solution than ever. A lot of homeowners report an abundance of clutter in their homes. With the average house size decreasing and apartment living on the rise, storage solutions around your home are probably more limited than ever. Shelves, cupboards and other such storage solutions can only go so far. At some point, you simply need more space. But how can you get more space? Self storage units are the perfect answer to this question and they are rapidly rising in popularity.

Storing Items That you Don’t use Often

Things that you don’t use often aren’t necessarily redundant. Almost everyone has things in their home that only come out a few times every year. Whether you use them for a special occasion or even nostalgia’s sake, these items are still important. So storing them is a must, but without enough space it gets tricky. Most people simply resign themselves to a life surrounded by clutter. Fortunately, this needn’t be the case. By hiring a self storage unit, you can effectively declutter your home with ease. You won’t have to worry about devising new and inventive ways to store your heirlooms. Simply pack them away in a self storage unit, and you can retrieve them at a moment’s notice.

Restore Order to your Home with Self Storage

Self storage is the best solution when it comes to decluttering your home. But what are its precise advantages? There are many advantages to self storage, and here at All Size Sheds we take pride in equipping our clients with all these advantages and more.

Self Storage is Affordable

The primary appeal of self storage is its price. You can get a spacious and well kept self storage unit for a very low price. Normally, the alternative to self storage is buying a bigger house, or renovating your current one to suit your needs. No doubt you would be aware that these are very costly solutions. Property is unaffordable for most, and renovations are similarly as costly. Not only this, but they also carry no guarantee of actually solving your storage issues. Self storage, on the other hand, is far more affordable. For a small price, you can gain extra space in your current home, as well as a secure storage site for your less frequently used belongings.

Self Storage is Easy

If you were to move into a bigger home, or renovate your current one, you face the arduous task of moving all of your belongings around. Even fitting new storage solutions such as shelving or cupboards in your current home is not possible without a lot of effort. Self storage is much easier. All you need to do is collect the items in your home that don’t see much use. There is no need to move all your possessions, nor do you have to spend your weekend undertaking a complicated DIY project. Simply pack a few items, and move them to your storage unit.

Self Storage is Secure

Finally, self storage offers a fantastic level of security. In the constant battle to declutter your home, you might have gone in search of extra storage space around your property. Whether it is under the house or in the garden shed, this can compromise the security of your items. As soon as they leave the protection of your home, they are at a greater risk of being stolen or damaged. With self storage, however, you have protection from the weather and potential theft.
