5 Reasons You Need Off-Site Storage

There are many reasons you would need off-site storage for your home or business. Whether for short-term or long-term requirements, you may benefit from off-site storage when doing home remodeling and repairs, when selling your house or if you have limited storage space in your existing home.

Off-site storage is just what it sounds like: storage that is provided off site and not at your home or place of business. Here are five reasons you would want to take advantage of off-site storage.

1.    You’re Selling Your Home

If you have decided to list your home for sale, you may face the need for de-cluttering first. This helps for two reasons. It makes it easier to maneuver around your house and pack it all up during a chaotic time. It also helps you save money by not having to pay movers to haul stuff you don’t really need right now. If your new home will be relatively close by, having your extra furniture and other items placed in off-site storage can free up space and make your move much easier.

2.    You Want to Declutter Your Home

Even if you don’t plan on selling your house, it’s always nice to have a neat, organized home. During the de-cluttering process, you will come across a lot of items that you don’t really need right now but that you don’t necessarily want to get rid of either. Off-site storage can provide you with the peace of mind you need to clear your home of clutter.

3.    You Are Clearing Out an Estate

If your parents have recently passed on and you were tasked with clearing out and selling their estate, you will need off-site storage to place all the items you couldn’t take for your own home.

This will give you the time and space you need to make more clear-headed decisions about what to sell later on or keep for mementoes. It can be really stressful and chaotic when your parents die, leaving you and your siblings to sort through the furniture, clothing and appliances left behind. You need somewhere to store all that stuff so you can take your time liquidating the estate.

4.    Your College Student Needs Dorm Storage

If you have a child in college and they will be coming home for the summer, you can use off-site storage for all their furniture and appliances. Students can have a lot of stuff to bring back home for the summer and it may not all fit in your house. You don’t want to deal with a cluttered space all summer, so why not just send it all to off-site storage? Then they can get their stuff back when it’s time to head back in the fall.

5.    You Have Seasonal Overflow

If you own a retail business, you likely have seasonal overflow that you need storage for in the off-season. In order to save space on site for things like holiday décor that you only need for the month of December, you can use off-site storage for the remaining 11 months. Now you can free up space that can be put to better use, such as additional space on the sales floor to sell products.

You also save on storage clutter in the back rooms when you are able to bring most of it to an off-site location. And remember, you can access that off-site storage whenever you need it.
