Why Self-Storage Is Better Than Your Garage


Some people use their garage to store a lot of their belongings that they don't want inside or don't have room for in the house. Many of these people end up finding that storing those things in the garage wasn't the best idea after all. They can find this out for numerous reasons. If you have things you need to store, and you are considering putting them in your garage, then you should consider the information here. It can help you to understand why a self-storage unit would be a much better environment for the things you have to store. 

Self-Storage Offers Climate-Control

The majority of garages aren't connected to the HVAC system that goes through the rest of the home. If your garage isn't connected to your HVAC system, then this means there will be nothing stopping the garage from getting very cold in the winter, and extremely hot and humid in the summer. A lot of things you are storing may be susceptible to damage due to these things. 

A self-storage unit that's climate-controlled will keep them protected from the heat, cold, and humidity, ensuring that they stay in the condition they are in when you store them. 

Self-Storage Gives You a Protected Place to Store Your Items

You might feel that your garage is as protected as the rest of your home. However, a lot of criminals target garages specifically because they aren't as protected as the home is. The garage is often on the side of the house that's away from the bedrooms, so the family won't hear anything happening if there were a break-in. Also, it can generally be accessed very quickly. Garages aren't sealed up as well as the rest of the home either, increasing the possibility of pest infestations. 

Storage units are constantly monitored, and access to the units is restricted to only those renting them. This decreases the possibility of your things being stolen. Also, the climate-controlled self-storage units are sealed tightly, so the contents will be safer from pests. 

Self-Storage Gives You the Room You Need

If you have a lot of things to store, then you may not be able to store them in your garage without giving up space that you would be able to use for parking your car or for other reasons. 

You can rent a self-storage unit in the size you need for the things that you have to store. You will also be able to free up all that space in your garage. This gives you the ability to use the garage for whatever else you want.
