How a Storage Unit Can Help You Achieve Your NYE Goals
Everybody wants to put 2020 behind them as quickly as possible, which makes your 2021 New Year’s Eve goals the most important to date. Every year, there are Top 10 lists that rank some of the most popular resolutions—but did you know that renting a storage unit right now can help you achieve them? Here’s how.
One of the top NYE resolutions is always to save money. So, how can renting a storage unit help you achieve this goal? It’s simple. Most people don’t have a lot of extra storage in their home. They use up space, like garages and spare bedrooms, that could be better served in other ways (and save money in the process). This is unique for every person, but for example, a cleared-out garage could make way for an at-home gym. This allows you to ditch those monthly gym memberships, the commute (and related expense) going to the gym, and even keep you healthier by reducing the amount of time you spend not socially distancing. That last one (health) is a bonus, since that’s always a top NYE resolution, too.
Another popular resolution is to increase peace and calm. That’s pretty tough to do when your home is full of clutter that you don’t use all the time, but you don’t want to throw out or donate. Cultivating mental and emotional health is largely driven by our environment. We can’t control everything, but we can control how clean and serene our surroundings are. By de-cluttering and moving items to storage, you’re creating a calm and tranquil environment. That will increase your own internal calm in the process.
However, not just any storage unit will do. It’s going to be a challenge to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your items are safely tucked away when you’re not 100 percent sure about just how protected they are. Overall, a storage facility is safer than a home. Break-ins are rare, and when they do occur they’re in storage facilities that aren’t up to snuff with safety measures.
Look for storage facilities with state-of-the-art camera systems and a solid gated entry. Ask about their security measures, and also check to see if temperature-controlled units are available. Temperature fluctuations can cause damage to some commonly stored items, such as furniture. You’ll also want to be aware of how often staff members are on-site, the processes for accessing units after hours, and how they stay on top of pest control.
Choosing a storage unit can be a great way to segue into the New Year. You can achieve a number of resolutions with a single decision. Plus, when you choose the right storage unit, it’s a decision that keeps on giving. Whether you need a unit for a short-term or life-long commitment, we have the right option for you at Oquirrh View Storage.
