With the cost of real estate at an all-time high, affording a house with enough room to store everything you own is extremely difficult. It isn't uncommon for homeowners or renters to source out storage separate from their place of residency.
What To Put In A Storage Unit
There isn't a setlist of what to put in a storage locker and what to leave out. Although, if you can permanently store items in a self-storage locker, the chances are you probably don't need it and should consider getting rid of it.
The best way to reduce the clutter at your house is to store seasonal items. For example, keep your yard tools and summer tires in storage in the winter. The same goes for your clothing. If you are short on closet space, consider packing up your off-season clothes and putting them in a storage locker until the season changes.
Packing Up Your Seasonal Toys
Spring in the Okanagan is one of the most fruitful times for those that love the outdoors. The season allows people to ski, golf, hike, paddleboard — all in one day! It is best practice to leave frequently used items at the front of your storage unit so that you can grab n go. A mobile storage unit might be the best option, especially if you live close to the ski hill or the beach. Store your toys close to home to use them every day.
There are many different storage options available to you for storing seasonal items. If you have sensitive items, it's best to contact a storage facility near you to inquire about a temperature-controlled storage unit. Luckily, at Space Centre Storage, we have an easy-to-use storage estimator tool that will help you find the perfect fit for your needs.
