Whether you are preparing in advance for the holidays, celebrating a birthday, or looking for a gift of appreciation, finding the perfect gift for your friend, colleague, or loved one can prove challenging. While it’s common place to send a gift basket of fruits or to invest in the latest tech gadget, these gifts are gone or outdated within a few weeks or months.
For those individuals looking to gift something outside of the box, self-storage units are perfect for anyone who needs a little extra space.
Self-Storage Units are the Perfect Gift
While you can’t tie a bow around it, gifting a self-storage unit has many advantages. Some advantages to gifting a self-storage unit include:
The gift that keeps giving, a self-storage unit keeps on giving month after month. Unlike other gifts, your self-storage unit won't break, age, expire or go out of style.
Self-storage units provide a flexible gift option. Month-to-month lease options allow you to control the length of time you pay for your rental. One month, six months, or a year - the choice is up to you.
A veritable gift, self-storage units can be used to store many items. From storing excess furniture and office equipment to storing art, antiques, and seasonal items, your loved one can decide how to best use their storage unit.
No need to leave your home, you can shop for the best storage unit and right size from the comforts of your home. However, if you’d rather see the unit in person, you can visit the facility for a unit tour.
Who Needs Self Storage?
While self-storage is not a common gift, it can benefit so many people, in so many different ways. Here are some great examples of people on your gift list who could benefit from self-storage.
Small business owners in need of extra space to store their office files and equipment while they expand.
Someone who has recently moved into a new home and requires time to unpack and settle.
Any individual looking to travel for a long period of time.
Individuals who are planning to remodel their home.
Any individual who owns a large or valuable collection of art or antiques.
Any individual who recently has lost a loved one and needs extra space to store their household items.
College or university students looking to store their items until they return home.
Outdoor enthusiasts who need space to store their items during the offseason.
What Storage Company is Best for You?
Like many other gifts, not all self-storage units are the same! Whether you are gifting self-storage to someone else or searching for yourself, you need to ensure you’re renting from a reputable and safe storage company.
The location of your storage facility is very important. Not only should it be conveniently located for easy access, it should also be in a safe and secure area. One of the benefits of a self-storage unit is the ability to access your belongings whenever you need them. If you have to drive a great distance, this may deter you from visiting or using your unit.
It's also important to ask what security measures a potential storage facility has in place. For example, are there security guards, motion-detected lights, smoke alarms, security cameras, or a high-tech security monitoring system onsite? These security features not only protect your belongings but they also protect you personally when you visit the unit.
Be sure to visit the self-storage unit in person before signing a contract. Typically, what you see is what you get. Always ask to inspect the facility and individual units. Pay attention to the various amenities the storage facility offers such as an office or showroom, access gates, security cameras, etc. An onsite visit will also allow you to inspect the property to determine whether the current owner is keeping up with repairs or if the facility has some neglected maintenance.
