Spring cleaning season has arrived, and if you’re like many people, it’s not just the inside of your home that could use a little tidying. If your garage is cluttered, spring is a great time of year to secure a bit of extra storage. Storage units that are temperature-controlled, humidity-controlled, and pest-controlled will prevent damage to your belongings while freeing up space in your garage. Here are 5 benefits of renting a storage unit for extra storage.

1. Extra Storage Allows You to Declutter

A cluttered garage makes it difficult to find the tools, the sporting equipment, and the lawn and garden furnishings you need to enjoy the spring and summer. By putting items that you don’t use regularly in your storage unit, you can free up space in your garage to use as you see fit. For example, you may be able to set up a workspace for building, or a studio for artwork.  You may create an exercise area in the garage that you can use. When you declutter your garage with extra storage you may find hobbies you never even knew you had. 

2. Storing Seasonal Items Keeps Your Garage Tidier

Many people who rent storage facilities choose to store seasonal items in their units.  After all, you only need your Christmas decorations once a year. Conversely, you aren’t likely to need your skis or snowboard in July.  During the winter you can put your lawnmower, edgers, and hoses in your storage unit to keep your garage tidy.

3. Renting a Personal Storage Unit Increases Your Home’s Square Footage

A personal storage unit creates extra space akin to adding on to your home but without the cost, disruption, and construction. Rather than filling your garage to the ceiling, or renovating your home, items that you want to keep but don’t have room for, can be safely stored in a dedicated space, thereby creating extra square feet for your belongings.

4. Climate-Controlled Storage Offers Better Protection for Valuable Belongings

Treasured or valued belongings are subject to the elements where they are kept. So if you’ve been keeping family heirlooms in your garage or shed, it’s very possible that they can become damaged due to the weather. Humidity can damage materials ranging from wood to fabric and metal to paper. Items made from these materials are best stored in a storage unit offering both climate control and humidity control.  

5. Storage Facilities with Enhanced Security Keep Your Items Safe

Garages and sheds may be at greater risk of burglary than a storage facility that offers enhanced security. So, when looking to create extra storage, you should be sure to select a facility that offers superior security features. Security features such as a perimeter fence, surveillance cameras, gated entry, onsite management, and alarms on storage units can ensure that your belongings stay safe when in storage.
