Storage Units Help with Boomerang “Kids”
Has your college student returned for the summer—indefinitely? Is your adult “child” moving back home in the midst of the pandemic? Oquirrh View Storage offers space-saving solutions for those who have suddenly found their home a little more crowded. While college students moving home for the summer has always been the norm, now they might be staying a little longer as numerous colleges and universities are planning to go fully online for autumn 2020. There’s also a good chance that you or your adult child no longer feel comfortable with their prior living situation, such as living with roommates or in highly impacted areas.
Any time you have more people living in your home (or working from home) space can suddenly become a lot more precious. Maybe you need to clear out a room or two to make way for your new arrangement. Perhaps you’re turning a former play room or media room into an office or study. If you have items you don’t want to part with, storage facilities are the perfect place to keep your treasures safe.
Why We Need More Storage
Increasingly, newer homes don’t have the storage space we used to count on such as finished basements or attics. This is especially true if you live in or near a metro area. Plus, we simply depend on more material items than we used to. This leads to a bottleneck when it comes to finding space. Storage facilities let you keep your items safe in a temperature-controlled environment. You can rest easy knowing the items you don’t want to part with are secure and that you can access them at your convenience.
Many college students come home for the summer (or longer) in a rented truck full of items they procured in the past academic year. Adult children who have been living and working in their own space have even more items. Instead of trying to fit everything into your home, depend on a storage unit so that you and your newly shared space have some breathing room.
Not All Storage Facilities are Equal
Maybe you’ve seen some headlines about burglaries at storage units. Just like homes and businesses, burglars seek out sites where they are unlikely to get caught—storage facilities without proper security measures or cameras are perfect targets. Criminals like this are opportunists, and they’ll quickly move on to an easier target if a storage facility is too secure. That’s why it’s important to choose your storage facility wisely, and you can always count on us to make sure your items are well-secured.
We’re taking extra safety precautions during COVID-19 to make sure your storage move-in, access, or move-out is as smooth as possible including additional sanitation measures. Storage units are available in a variety of sizes and can suit any budget.
