5 Reasons Why People Might Need Storage

There are many different reasons why people may need to use storage on a short or long term basis, here are 5 reasons why people might need storage when moving home.


If you have to move into a smaller home quickly, you might not be able to sort through all your belongings promptly. Instead of making hasty decisions you might regret later, put the excess into a storage unit to sort through once the move is over.

Preparing a home for sale.

Have children or pets?

You might have a lot of things in your home that don’t necessarily look ready for a a quick sale.

We suggest renting a small storage unit to keep some clunky items off-site during the time your house is for sale.

Closing date pushed back

If you need to be out of your home by February 28, but your closing date won’t happen until March 15, a storage unit is going to relieve a lot of stress.

It may involve two moves, but at least you know your possessions will be kept safe and secure in the meantime.

A transient job with no permanent residence

If you are travelling or working overseas, having a storage unit with your home base items might be worth consideration.

Once you are in a better position to put down some longer term roots, the storage unit can be replaced with a longer-term home.

Consolidating homes

This process can happen when a couple first move in together or when an elderly parent moves in with a child. In either situation, there is likely to be a lot of excess stuff.

A storage unit can give you and your family time to get through the transition.
