Clearing the Clutter? Self Storage is the Answer

Every year, people move into the Lakeland, FL area to enjoy the great weather and location. When people move from other parts of the country and start unpacking, they sometimes realize that a lot of their belongings used to be stored in the basement and their new home doesn’t have one. Longtime residents look around and would like to simplify their home environment. It’s a fact of life that belongings seem to breed and storage space shrinks.

Is It Time to Clear the Clutter?

Has clearing the clutter finally reached the top spot on your “to-do” list?

  • Do you own a lot of great stuff, but just have too much of it?
  • Did you have a yard sale or two and still have a lot of stuff left over?
  • Did the kids move out or go on to college and leave a lot of stuff behind, but you’d like to turn their old room into an office?
  • Are you downsizing to a smaller home?
  • Are you moving and need a place to store things for a while?
  • Are you remodeling and need temporary storage while the work is being done?
  • Do you need a place to store your RV, boat or trailer, preferably with an electric outlet available when needed?

What to Look for in a Self Storage Facility

Rent the right size storage unit. A small 5’x5′ storage unit is about the size of a walk-in closet. It’s a great place to store extra clothing or small items. Larger units are available in various sizes up to 20’x20′ or 400 sq. ft. This is large enough to store a small vehicle, boat on a trailer, large furniture and moving boxes. Talk to the staff about what you need to store in order to rent the best unit for you.

Security. Security cameras, 24-hour video surveillance, gates and fences are essential.

Climate-control. Cold isn’t a problem in Lakeland, but it’s better not to expose valuable possessions to Florida’s heat for extended periods. Climate-controlled storage units protect those things you care about.

Pest control. A routine pest control program provides another level of protection for your belongings.

Wide access aisles: When it’s time to load and unload, you need room for large moving trucks.
