Renting a secure, low cost storage unit can not only help you to maximize your current living or working space, but it can also prove to save you money. Read on to learn all the ways that renting a low cost storage unit saves space and money.

1. Downsize Your Office

Many companies have adopted hybrid work models allowing many employees to work from home some of the time. With fewer employees coming to the office, you may be able to save significantly by downsizing to a smaller space. When you downsize, a low cost storage unit can keep your excess office furniture safe, without spending a fortune.  

2. Create Home Office

If you are working from home full-time or part-time, it’s essential to have a designated workspace. A low cost storage unit can help you to declutter your home to make the space you need to do your work efficiently from home. 

3. Save Money Between Moves

Short-term, low-cost storage can save you a fortune if you’re planning a move. For those selling their homes, excess furniture can be placed in the storage unit to stage your home in its most attractive light. Likewise, if you’re buying a home, but need a place to store your belongings temporarily before you close on the home, a cargo shipping container storage unit is a great option for keeping your belongings safe for one month, two months, three months, or longer.

4. Create More Space in Your Home

You may not realize just how much space you have in your home. Decluttering will maximize your living space, without the expense or disruption of a remodel. Storing holiday decorations, seasonal sporting equipment, lawn and garden tools, patio furniture, and more in an affordable storage unit instead of your home, can help you to create more space instantly.

5. Save Money During a Home Renovation

If you are preparing for a home addition, renovation, or remodel, a short-term storage unit rental is the perfect solution.

What to Look for in a Low Cost Storage Unit

To ensure that your storage unit will be cost-effective, make sure that you find a safe, secure facility that offers flexibility in rental agreements. 

Month-to-Month Contracts

The best storage units should offer month-to-month terms. By renting a unit on a month-to-month basis, you’ll ensure that you’re only paying for the storage space when you need it. Look for companies that also prorate move-in and move-out months in case you need to move mid-month.

Security Facility and Units

Be sure that you only store your items in a facility that takes security seriously. Look for a perimeter gate, controlled access, and plenty of security cameras.  As for the storage unit itself, ensure that it is watertight to protect your belongings from rain, sleet, and snow. A storage unit that can only be accessed from the front without access through a wall or ceiling will also keep your belongings safe while in storage.
