Christmas tree with presents

The holiday season is one of the best times of the year to invest in a short term storage unit.  Renting a storage unit gives you the extra space needed during the holiday season.

A spacious and organized home makes it easier to enjoy the holiday season with loved ones. If you are feeling cramped in your home, a storage unit is an easy and affordable storage solution. Here are a few benefits of renting a self storage unit over the holidays.

Hide Your Presents

No matter how great you think you may be at hiding your presents, there’s always a chance they may be found, especially if you have snoopers in your household.  Unfortunately, this is very common and it’s almost impossible to prevent.

As Christmas approaches, your hiding spots may be overflowing with gifts.  Renting a self storage unit is a great solution to house all of your gifts.  It will keep them safe and secure and impossible find.  Not only can you hide your presents in a storage unit, you can also use it to do all of your wrapping.

Make A Guest Room

The holiday season is a time that brings house guests. Making sure your guests are comfortable and have ample room will make their visit a great one. The more comfortable they are, the more stress free it will be for everyone.

Renting a self storage unit would be cheaper than paying for a hotel for a weekend. Save your money and rent a self storage unit with convenient access that is safe and secure.

Make Room In Your House

If you are throwing a holiday party or dinner, clear out the clutter from your home by renting a storage unit. You can get that extra furniture out of the way to free up space for all your holiday décor and Christmas tree.  Make sure you give yourself and your guests plenty of room to be comfortable and make your event the best it can be.

Store Your Seasonal Items

Seasonal items can take up a lot of much needed space. These items won’t be used again for months, so why not rent a storage unit? Free up the space in your closets, garage, and utility room for the items you use more regularly. Not only will renting a storage unit free up space during the holidays, it will do so all year round.

Store Your Christmas Decorations When The Holidays Are Over

Sadly, eventually, the holidays will be over, and life and your home will go back to normal. Store your Christmas decorations away in a self storage unit so they won’t get in your way for the remainder of the year. This way, when the holidays roll around next year, everything will be in one place and ready to go.

Location is very important when it comes to self storage. You will want to find a storage facility that is fairly close to home, so it is easy to access.

Climate Controlled Storage Units

Certain items do not hold up in cold temperatures. If you have sensitive items, such as art, antiques, musical instruments or electronics, a climate-controlled storage unit will keep them safe and secure. They cost a little bit more, but are worth the investment to protect your valuable items.

Drive-Up Access Storage Units

Unheated, drive-up access storage units are extremely convenient. You drive your vehicle right up to the door of the storage unit for easy loading and unloading of your belongings. These are especially good if you have large or heavy items and plan to access your storage unit regularly.
