What Is Self-Storage?
Self-storage is a type of storage solution that can come in handy during a variety of situations and life events.
If you have items, furniture, appliances, seasonal equipment, decorations, etc. that you need extra space for but
still want to keep, self-storage can be a great option for you. Self-storage is the perfect solution to many of
the following scenarios and more:
Settling an Estate
When a loved one moves into assisted living or passes away, you can store their items in a self-storage until
you are ready to divide them among family or have an estate sale.
New Member of Your Home
You may need to utilize self-storage to temporarily store your belongings in order to make space for an
elderly family member that needs full-time care, a nursery for a new baby, a hosted foreign exchange student,
or your college student who has graduated and is returning home while building their future career plans.
Remodeling Your Home
It is much easier to paint, re-carpet, install floors, remodel your living room, etc. when you have an open
space to work in and don’t have to worry about damaging or continuously moving furniture out of the way.
Consider renting a self-storage space to save yourself the hassle!
Family Member Leaving
If you have an adult child that is deploying for the military, moving away for college, or leaving for a few
years on a mission you can easily store their belongings in a self-storage until they return home.
Building a House
It is extremely exciting when you build a house! However, you may have sold your previous house to make the
down payments and are now living with a family or friend. While you wait for the final walk-through and
closing of your newly built home, keep your items safe in self-storage.

If you are a small business owner and need a place for extra inventory, consider renting a self-storage unit.

convenient for many reasons - it frees up more space in your home, and you can get your items back at any time.
