As we grow older, we learn to cherish small things over expensive stuff. Our first son’s pajamas, old notebooks from when we were at high school, that costume we wore at Halloween many years ago when we gave our first kiss, etc. Material stuff tends to be attached to amazing memories that we want to keep forever, but at the same time has the downside of occupying space, which certainly isn’t limitless in any given home. So, do I need to get rid of all these items that I don’t use anymore to free up some space, even at the expense of losing the treasurable memories they come with? Of course not; there is always a public storage near me.
- How to get all my stuff to the public storage?
Ok, so I have decided to move my belongings to a public storage near me, but how do I get them there in the first place?
Many people know about public storage units, but most of them don’t know that actually there are more than a few companies that, besides storage units, also provide moving services to transport big pieces of furniture from your home to you unit. It is just a matter of asking and comparing all your options.
- How much do they cost?
As it happens with any other product or service, rates vary from company to company. It all depends on how many space you need, which company you chose for renting your storage unit and if you are going to be needing your unit for long periods of time –more than a year- or just a couple months.
- Are they safe?
Public storages are just big, squared rooms with no windows or services that are meant just to store your belongings. While there are several storage units together and anyone can access his own at any time they want, they are considerably safe, since you have the option to provide your own lock. For added security, some companies even have security cameras on the hallways and offer deluxe packages that come with insurance –for an extra fee, of course- if you want to store particularly valuable items.
- But what if I suddenly need my stuff?
As we mentioned before, public storage units are your property as long as you are paying the rent, so you can access whatever you are storing inside them at any time of the day, as many times as you need.
The best thing about them is that there are so many options for public storage out there, that you will definitely find one that is near your home, so the initial transportation of your belongings, the eventual withdrawal –in case you decide to move from the city or anything- and accessing your personal items whenever you need them can be extremely convenient, no matter where you live!
