5 Benefits of Using Self-storage or Mobile Storage Units When Renovating

Learn more about the top benefits of storing your items in a storage unit while renovating your home or office.

 

1. It’s convenient

Renting a mobile storage container is a convenient way to store your things during a renovation. Storage service companies can deliver a leak-proof and weather-proof container right to your home or office. You can even keep it in your driveway or parking lot while the construction takes place. This allows you to have easy access to your belongings whenever you need them.


2. It ensures your valuables are safe

A renovation project can be chaotic. A variety of workers, such as plumbers, electricians and construction workers, will be coming and going daily. This can make it difficult to keep track of who’s in your home or office, and it increases the risk that something might go missing or get damaged. Storing your valuables in a locked, secure unit will give you peace of mind.


3. It keeps your things clean

Construction projects are notoriously messy. Drywall and concrete dust as well as paint and other materials can stain or damage furniture. This can be costly for a business, or there’s a risk of losing items in your home that have sentimental value. Therefore, it’s best to get everything out of the way until the work is done.


4. It facilitates organization and reduces clutter

It’s difficult to keep your home or office organized and clutter-free during a renovation project. Renting a storage space can help you keep track of items and ensure they’re easily accessible. This can make it easier to maintain a sense of normalcy at home or keep your business on track during a renovation.


5. It gives you extra space

Without a mobile storage unit, you may need to stack boxes and furniture in a bedroom, office or garage, taking up valuable space. Having a container on your property gives you extra room at a time when part of your home or office is already inaccessible.
