A Storage Unit Can Save a Marriage

It’s true! We’ve seen it before – a self-storage unit can save a marriage. We all have limited space in our house, our garage, our car, our cottage, and we seem to acquire more and more stuff that fills up that space. As the years go on, we have more stuff, less room, and feel disorganized. Soon, it’s tough to access all of the stuff you have, which isn’t great, because then you know you have a tool for this specific job, or you already bought a Christmas wreath last year, but you can’t get to it!

We posted “a storage unit can save a marriage” on our road sign and have had so many people come in, chuckling to themselves, and then seriously say, “yes, it really did save mine!”, so we know it’s the truth.

Here are some ideas for storing as a couple:

  • The Even Steven: Get a medium sized self-storage unit at our Milton facility, which is an 8’x20’ unit, and split it down the middle.
  • His and Hers: Get two small sized self-storage units, 8’x8’s, right next to each other and keep your “stuff” separate. This works for the couples that have different interests and hobbies, like the wife who sews probably doesn’t want her machine and materials mingling with her husband’s tools and woodworking equipment.
  • The “Secret”: One spouse gets a storage unit to keep the peace. If we’re being honest, this is almost always the husband and it’s usually all of us stuff that is preventing a car from being parked in a garage. But, in theory, it could be the wife storing her gardening equipment in the winter, or her snowmobile in the summer!

What’s great about Storage Solutions? Many things! The best thing is that our storage units are all drive-up with lots of room for you to unload a truck or trailer – no elevators, no long hallways. We also rent month-to-month, so you commitment is very minimal. We are also a family business and our reputation is on the line with our service so we work hard to maintain a clean and secure facility every day.
