You may have ended up with a large range of possessions over the years and, with more time on your hands now you are newly retired, you might be unsure of what to do with them all. There are a number of reasons why self-storage could be the perfect option for you. Here are just a couple to consider if you are a retiree:
One of the reasons why many retirees hire out self-storage is due to downsizing. As you grow older, you may be worried about having to maintain or even get around a large property. That’s why many retirees choose to downsize their property to a smaller bungalow or apartment. Of course, you may have to get rid of a few personal belongings, so you have enough space within your new home without too much clutter.
Such items you might be looking to store temporarily or long term include large furniture pieces or personal possessions which you cannot bear to part with. Knowing that you can access these items whenever you desire allows for peace of mind. All items will be locked securely, in a temperature-controlled unit for preservation purposes. Hiring a unit is extremely good value for money when considering you may need to replace thrown away items in the near future – adding a greater expense than hiring storage in the first place.
2. Moving abroad
Many retirees decide to move abroad to enjoy a new life in the sun. Having to sell off personal possessions can be distressing and tedious when there are other important aspects to plan. One of the great benefits of self-storage is that personal items can be accessed whenever you desire – perfect if you are not yet sure how long you will stay abroad. Self-storage is cost-effective in the sense that you won’t have to pay for relocation expenses to fly your items halfway across the world. You can pick and choose what you would like to take with you and leave the rest in safe hands.
