Self storage can solve a lot of problems.

It’s helpful for storing holiday decorations, off-season clothing, antiques you’re not currently using, collections, and many other things. Not sure if you need self storage? Keep reading for three sure-fire signs that you can benefit from self storage in your life.

3 Signs You Need a Self Storage Unit

Clutter has a way of creeping up on you—without you even realizing it. If any of the following three statements describe you, it may be time to take action.

1. Your Surroundings Distract You

Is it hard to focus in your own home? Do you feel a constant sense of unease? It could be the clutter that’s getting you down. Research shows that clutter not only causes stress, it also distracts and overwhelms us.

If that sounds familiar, it’s probably time to tackle the issue. Unfortunately, all the decluttering in the world may not solve your problem, which is where self storage comes in.

2. You Can’t Use Your Treadmill

Are you storing cushions from your outdoor furniture on your treadmill for the winter? Do you keep extra shoes in your pantry? Are suitcases stashed in the baby’s room? Items stored in unexpected places is a sure sign that you’re simply running out of room. If you can’t use it now, you won’t use it later.

3. Your Car is Parked in Your Driveway

It’s a lot of fun to own a bike, a snowmobile, and maybe even a boat. But when you can’t park your car in your garage anymore, it’s not so fun, especially on rainy or snowy days. Renting a self storage unit allows you to have the best of both worlds. You can store your snowmobile in self storage—and park your car in your own garage.
