Why consider self-storage?

Life is filled with transitions, some anticipated, others surprising, and self-storage can be a great help during these important moments. Whether you’re doing a home renovation, planning a cross-country move or emigrating, self-storage solutions provide the flexibility to navigate these transitions. U Can Store has prime and convenient storage locations to cater specifically to your unique needs.

Whether you want to declutter your living or working space, or you’re looking for a seamless storage experience, it all starts here. At U Can Store we will help you navigate the business of self-storage – showing you the benefits, and explain how storing your items at one of our conveniently situated storage facilities could be the best option for you.

Why consider self-storage?

Imagine a move without stress, a home free from the clutter of ongoing and seemingly never-ending renovations, or the ability to securely store your belongings during a move abroad. Our self-storage solutions allow you to plan for these life changes by removing the stress of dealing with your possessions.

Temporary relocation: Self-storage allows for temporary storage of your belongings during unexpected moves or relocations, providing a flexible solution when life throws you a curveball.

Home renovations: During home renovations,  self-storage offers a convenient space to store furniture and belongings temporarily, allowing for a smoother renovation process without clutter.

Downsizing: When downsizing your living space, self-storage gives you time to decide what to keep, sell, or donate, without the pressure of getting rid of cherished belongings immediately.

Emergency situations: In emergencies such as natural disasters or home damage, self-storage offers a secure place to store salvaged belongings while you take care of repairs or find a new place to live.

Seasonal storage: Self-storage allows for the easy rotation of seasonal items such as holiday decorations, sports equipment, or clothing, freeing up space in your home and providing flexibility throughout the year.

Business flexibility: For small business owners or entrepreneurs, self-storage offers flexibility by providing extra space for inventory, equipment, or documents without the need for long-term leases or expensive office rentals.

Family expansion: With the addition of a new family member or growing children, self-storage offers flexibility by providing space for storing baby gear, toys, or outgrown items until they are needed again.

Here’s how to make the most of a storage unit

Turnkey storage solutions
A turnkey storage solution is ideal if you have constraints or limited resources. Evaluate your budget carefully when deciding what’s right for you. Turnkey solutions may have upfront costs, but they often include all-inclusive services. DIY storage might seem cost-effective initially, but expenses can add up when considering transportation, packing materials, and potential setbacks. Compare the total costs to make an informed decision.

Ultimately, the decision between turnkey storage and DIY storage depends on your priorities, resources, and preferences. Read more about the considerations when deciding if a turnkey makes sense for you.
