One of our most popular road signs is A storage unit can save a marriage.
We get honked, people come into our office to laugh - it’s all in good fun. But there is an undercurrent of…truth!
We’ve seen so many couples move in over the years and they have jokingly told us that their self storage unit keeps them sane and gives them both some space.
It’s true, clutter can make you stressed out. What’s even more true, is when the clutter isn’t even yours, it can make you crazy. But we all need our own space, and our own things because that’s what keeps us interesting and interested.
When people come to us for self-storage rentals and storage advice in general, we tell them to look at what they are looking to store. If they are storing things they will never use, then we suggest that they make the hard decision to donate or sell these items. But for everything they love, plan to use or cannot bear to part with, and don’t have the space at home to store, a self storage unit is a great place to keep these things. It’s private, it’s quiet, and it’s secure.
What’s nice about a storage unit for a couple, is that they are rectangles and squares, which makes them pretty easy to divide into two. Each of you gets your own place for your things, and those things aren’t underfoot every second of every day in your home (which can cause a simple tiff or a full-blown argument). It also gives you both a common place to be. Many marriages are made stronger as they re-organize their storage unit.
One thing we tell couples is that if they are both storing belongings in the unit, please sign up together on the rental agreement so you’re both protected. And make sure you both have a key to the lock on the unit! Everything else is up to you.
Our favourite married couple? They decided they didn’t want to share a unit, so they have side-by-side units. It’s pretty funny (and heartwarming) that they visit the storage facility together, spend hours in their own unit, and leave together happy Their visits always put a smile on our face.
