Most households have those items at home that are useful but are so big or bulky that they are tempted to throw them out. But just because there is not enough space to store them at home, consider using a self storage facility to store them instead of getting rid of them. This way they will be available for those times that you do need them, even if it is only a few times a year.

Most of us own so much stuff that it seems to be taking over our homes. Many of these items are not needed every day. Some may only be needed seasonally during the summer or winter, while others a couple of times a month. These may be things of value to you, but you have nowhere to keep them at your home. A self storage facility offers the perfect solution to this problem in that your goods will be safe at all times but will be accessible to you when you need them.

Here are some of those items that you can move and store in your self storage unit in order to make more space at home.

  1. Old or excess furniture.

    If you find your attic or garage full of furniture that is not being used, consider moving it into a storage unit. You may have inherited furniture from your parents and want to keep it for your kids for when they finally move on and get their own homes, but whatever the reason, you have items that you don’t really need but that you are not ready to part with.

    You may wish to convert your attic into an extra living space in which case you will need to clear it out. Sorting through the contents of your attic, throwing away the stuff you really no longer need, and placing the other items in storage, will allow you to regain valuable space.

    You may also want to reclaim your garage to house your car or use it as a workshop, but this isn’t possible if it is full of furniture and other items that you seldom use. Placing these items in storage will keep them safe and out of the way until the next person needs them.

  2. Outdoor Equipment and Patio Furniture.

    This includes your lawnmower, other garden equipment such as chippers, wheelbarrows, long ladders, and anything else that is a must-have for the summer months, but that needs to be stored for the rest of the year. Not everyone has a garden shed to keep these bulky items, so consider keeping them in your storage unit when they are not in use. Leaving them outside is not an option as they will quickly rust and disintegrate. Outdoor furniture also needs careful storage so that it doesn’t discolour and crack. Keeping these in your storage unit means that they will be in good condition when you need them for when the weather warms up.

  3. Seasonal Clothing.

    Not many of us have the luxury of enough closet space to keep our clothing year-round. So instead of stuffing these away where they may get ruined, rather pack your winter coats, boots, pullovers, and jackets away into a self storage unit. If packed carefully, your clothes will keep in good shape. You can use clothes racks and temporary shelving in your unit to organise your clothes and accessories. This is the perfect way to make space at home for the next season’s clothing.

  4. Sports Equipment.

    Where do you keep your golf clubs when they are not in use? Or your kayak? Or your skiing equipment? These are bulky items that cost a lot of money to replace so they need to be stored carefully. If you keep them in your garage they could be stolen as most garages are not secure. If you keep them in your home they will take up a lot of space and may end up being damaged by other stuff being placed on top of them. So consider keeping them in your self storage unit. They will not only be safe from theft and damage, but they will be available to you at any time.

  5. Baby Paraphernalia.

    Baby gear such as the crib, stroller, playpen, high chair, compactum, and everything else that is needed for a baby takes up loads of space. If you are thinking of adding to your family in the future and you don’t want to get rid of these items only to have to replace them later, pack them up and put them into a self storage facility. You can keep them safely in your unit until you need them again.
