You don’t typically wake up in the morning and say to yourself, “I think I’ll go shopping for a self storage unit today. I may not need it now, but maybe I’ll use it someday.” It doesn’t work that way. Extra storage is something you don’t think about until you need it. Life tends to sneak up on you when you least expect it. By the time you start to notice that you need more space, it’s almost too late. Don’t stress. It’s never too late with Handy Storage.

When you need extra space, whatever the reason, Handy Storage is your easy, affordable self storage solution.
As your due date draws near, you’re thinking about a sweet space for your new little bundle of joy. If this is your first child, you’re thrilled, but clueless. You don’t yet know that you’ll need warehouse-sized space for baby’s needs. That tiny baby will need truckloads of diapers, wipes, and clothes, not to mention strollers, car seats and toys. Unfortunately, your only extra room is already filled to capacity with junk, and you need a solution. It’s time to think about a safe, secure self storage unit. You can get that room ready for baby, and decide what to do with the rest of your stuff later (or maybe after the next baby).
Trying to combine the belongings of two very different people doesn’t always work well. He may have an “unusual” art collection. She may have built a shoe collection that would be more than enough footwear for a third world country. That first apartment will probably be too crowded for the belongings of one person, let alone two. Don’t ruin your marital bliss with an argument; it doesn’t last that long anyway. Rent a storage space with us. You can visit your shoes and fine art(???) 24 hours a day, every day.
Remodeling can be one of the most stressful, anxiety-inducing, exhausting events that you’ll ever face. People have been known to build a new home because it was less stressful than a remodel. Don’t make it even worse by trying to live with boxes, extra furniture, and appliances in your living room, dining room, or master bath. Add kids and pets to this mix, and you’ll be ready for the nearest psychiatric ward. A self-storage unit is the perfect temporary space for your belongings. With flexible month-to-month leasing, you don’t have to make a long-term commitment. And, maybe you’ll end up keeping that unit for the next remodel (or the move).
This falls into the same category as remodeling – anxiety producing. Not only do you have to sell your home and find a new one, you have to be subject to the whims of buyers who think HGTV is the real world. You have to make your home more appealing to potential buyers by “staging” it to look trendy and expensive. It would be nice if buyers had the foresight to look past furnishings that aren’t included in the sale of the home. But, they just can’t seem to wrap their brains around that. In the interest of selling your home more quickly, rent a storage unit for your furniture, and stage the place to look like Pottery Barn.
Until you’ve lived through the trauma of moving a child to and from college every year, for four or many more years, you have no concept of the enormity of this task. Ask yourself if you really want all of that furniture, decor, books, and just plain junk in your garage? You will find strange and unfamiliar things (some of them may be alive) in the dresser drawers. Lease a storage unit near the school so that you don’t have to move this stuff every year. After graduation (which you hope comes sooner rather than later), they can deal with this garbage themselves.
It’s hard to leave the home where you’ve made memories with your family. We know that you’ll miss 50 years worth of accumulated clutter and the worry, sleepless nights, and financial ruin that come with parenting. But the time has come. Donate the “Big Wheels” to Goodwill and throw away the Barbie doll that looks like she just took the “walk of shame.” The kids don’t want them. For the debris that you just cannot part with, rent a secure self-storage unit. Friendly tip: store the extra furniture. You may decide that the condo is too small and want to move back into that huge house.
We’ve all been faced with difficult situations in which we’re forced to downsize due to a financial downturn. When that happens, you don’t want to sell all of your furniture and belongings. Life will get better, and you’ll want your things to be waiting for you. Convenient, affordable self storage is your lifesaver in this situation. When the economy improves, you can pick up your items and get back on track. Things will be so good that your self storage unit will come in handy for all of the extras that you’re able to buy!
Unfortunately, a very high percentage of marriages end in divorce. This means that one or both people end up in an apartment that is probably much smaller than the previous home. It’s challenging to find the needed space, especially when you’re dealing with so many other distressing issues. You don’t want to discard furniture; who knows where you’ll go and what you’ll need. Self-storage becomes the solution by providing the time and space needed to sort through possessions and fight over who gets what. “His and Hers” storage units are a good idea in this situation. You can hide stuff. We’ll never tell.
There comes a time when your elderly loved ones cannot or do not want to stay in their home. They will either move in with you or to a retirement home. This is a difficult time for the entire family on many levels. Your loved ones try to give away their belongings to family who do not want or cannot use them. This results in hard feelings on both sides. A self storage unit can solve this problem. You can store those precious memories and examine them at your leisure. If possible, involve your family in deciding how they can best be donated or disposed of.
