The Real Value of a Self-Storage Company

Are you finding yourself looking around your home or business thinking, “OMG, there is so much stuff in here and it’s taking up too much space!“ Following this, your heart starts to beat a little faster and pound a little harder, and an unsettling overwhelming feeling takes over?

You’re not alone. Studies have revealed that living in constant clutter and disorganization is not good for your overall health.

If this is your situation, it may be time to get help from a self-storage company. 

We’re serious.

We know that when people first think of self-storage (also called public storage or mini storage), they often view it as just renting space. Plus, thanks to movies, television and books, self-storage facilities are often depicted as dark, scary, isolated places, filled with odd characters lurking about. This is definitely not true at Storage Solutions' Milton and Woodstock facilities and other reputable self-storage companies.

A self-storage company does so much more than just rent you space. They also give a person or business the opportunity to reclaim control that has been lost to clutter and ‘stuff’ and help open the door to new possibilities or opportunities as they are no longer weighed down mentally and feel emotionally drained. The real value of a self-storage company is the overall impact it can have on quality of life and well-being, including:

  • Organization
  • Calmness
  • A clearer mental state
  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Increased efficiency
  • Improved function

Plus, because it often makes your home or business seem bigger (and cleaner), you can gain a new outlook on the space you have and how to use it differently. If you’re a business, this can put you in a better position to grow or improve your day-to-day operations.

Two big concerns and stresses about a self-storage company are price and safety of your stored items while not under your watchful eye. The good news is that self-storage can be affordable and secure:

  • Affordability: Storage units come in a wide range of sizes, and most facilities offer very flexible contract lengths, as little as one month. So, you can find a unit that fits your needs for as long or as little as you like, keeping your costs down. Renting a storage unit is much cheaper than buying a bigger house or warehouse!
  • Safety & Security: Reputable storage facilities often employ security measures such as fencing, gated access, alarm systems, lighting, and monitored video surveillance to ensure your belongings are kept safe. Many homes and businesses don’t have this level of security, so you can feel at ease knowing that your personal items are safe and secure.

It’s true that not all storage companies are the same, so to help take the stress out of finding a reputable self-storage company that meets your needs, here are 8 essential questions to ask each facility you vet.

When you invest in self-storage you’re actually making a personal investment in yourself, family or business. So, the next time you’re at home or work and you find yourself overwhelmed in your surroundings because stuff has taken over, we hope you’ll consider self-storage.

Your friend in self-storage,

Very reliable storage. A good solution to park your car and keeping it protected from all weather conditions. Although a bit remote location.. but the price and the service was worth it.

I went in to find out some information on storage units for when I move in a couple weeks and was happily surprised by the customer service I received. I had looked at a few other storage facilities in Woodstock but their customer service was terrible compared to Jared's from Storage Solutions. He was professional and understanding of my needs and was ready to help anywhere he could. I will definitely be spreading the word to any of my friends looking for units!

Great rates for a clean, secure, well lit place. Really good staff and a company that cares. New facility and the competitors are pretty tired looking and charging the same rates (if not a bit more).

My husband and I recently relocated from the US and needed a place to store all of our belongings while we secured a new home. The folks at Storage Solutions advised us on the right size unit for our needs, at the right price. They were kind and helpful with all of our "first-timer" questions. We were very confident in the security of the place, and had absolutely no issues. I would highly recommend and use them again if needed.
