Happily Ever After With Self Storage

Have you found yourself in a happily ever after situation? A relationship you just know is going to work out, or you just got married? That's great, but there are still decisions to be made. Storage is one of them as everyone has stuff and combining everyone's stuff when living together can be difficult. Can you really fit all your essential items and your hoarded knick-knacks in your lover's place? They likely have stuff of their own as well, so there definitely does need to be some middle ground worked out in this aspect.

Self Storage

Self storage is the middle ground that you need. It consists of a storage unit that you pay to rent out and have full access to. Self storage provides you with the storage space you need for many of the items that you do not need out, but do not want to throw out either. A self storage space is a great idea for anyone that has just found their happily ever after living situation. It will prevent a multitude of potential issues in the relationship and it will cut down on general clutter as well.

Self storage does not cost a lot. You can invest in a mini self storage unit for a very low cost. Also, many self storage companies have special offers that will make the investment even more beneficial. For example, some companies will pay for the truck rental costs associated with moving your items to the storage unit. You can check around the various options of rental companies and decide which will offer a unit that suits your needs for an affordable price. There are many options though, so you will have to consider more than just the price of the unit. The location would be another factor that you may want to bring into your decision.

What Do You Need Self Storage For?

You will have to figure out what items will be stored in the unit. This will allow you to get a better idea on the size of unit that you require, which is needed in order to effectively shop around for the best deal. Think about the items that will be stored. You should discuss this with your partner as well. For example, if there is only enough room for one couch in the house then you will have to decide whether yours or your partner's couch will be put in storage.

Some items may be discarded easily. For example, you and your partner both own a microwave but there is no obvious reason to have two in the house so one can easily be placed in storage. You can take this time to think about what items you may want to throw out or use as a donation, instead of just tossing everything into the storage unit. A mini self storage unit is sufficient if you do not have too much stuff, but when dealing with space-takers such as a furniture you may have to look for a larger sized unit.
