Storing Items… Making Space

When you need to free up space at your home, self-storage is the best solution. There are items that you are not ready to part with, but they are taking up necessary space. Instead of throwing those items out, purchase a storage unit for long or short-term use. You can think of the unit as an extra bedroom in your home, even though it may be a few miles away.

Before You Store

You will need to do some research on storage rental facilities before you sign a contract or make any type of commitment. You know the items you want to store, but the facility has the final say. There are certain items that these companies will not accept. You need to go over the rules and regulations of the storage facility before signing an agreement. Do not sneak items into a facility, because you run the risk of losing those items due to breach of contract.

Top Items to Store

If you are having trouble deciding what you should place into storage, here are some of the best items to store that could free up space around your home:

  • Seasonal Items

  • Furniture

  • MonarchAntique
  • Books

  • Appliances

  • Artwork

  • Heirlooms

  • Antiques

Christmas, Halloween, and other holidays come once a year, which is why they are the best items to self-store. If you have tons and tons of decorations, they are more than likely cluttering your basement or the closets in your home. You can place these items into a self-storage unit until the next holiday.

Electronics and appliances are the top items to store away. Even though the items are no longer being used around the home, they may still work and could be used later on down the road. For instance, if your microwave goes out, you could go to your storage unit and grab the extra microwave to use at home.

You may have downsized your home, but there is furniture that you do not want to part with. Thanks to self-storage, you don’t have to. You put the furniture in storage and free up some space in your home. If you move into a larger house in the future, you can remove your furniture from the storage unit and use it in your new home.


Be sure to purchase insurance for the items you store inside of your unit. If any of the items are lost, stolen, or damaged, your insurance provider will typically replace them. These items still hold value, even though they are being moved out of the home to free up space.
