Whether you’re a college student or live in Boston year round, chances are that you have more stuff than space. It happens – Boston is one of the most expensive cities to live in, and things like spacious closets and access to attic or basement storage aren’t something everyone has. That’s where storage units come in.
Think of your storage unit as a seasonal off-site closet. During the summer, your Boston storage unit can hold your winter wardrobe, your ski gear, your heavy blankets, your snow shovels, and that sort of thing. When winter rolls around, as it inevitably does, your Boston storage unit can hold all of your summer gear, the kids’ outdoor toys, bicycles, the barbecue grill and other items you won’t need when it’s cold outside.
Storage units come in a variety of sizes. Some families prefer to contain costs by securing a large storage unit and storing everyone’s things in there. However, for some families, particularly those with older or adult children living at home, it may make more sense to rent multiple smaller storage units and divide them logically. Choose a storage facility that allows you 24/7 access to your possessions: this can be important in case you decide at the last minute you really do need the barbecue grill or your bikini.
Another reason people in Boston rent storage units is because they have a home business. Storing excess inventory, raw materials, and packing supplies can make your home uncomfortably crowded. Renting a storage unit is a smart way to keep the items you’ll need, easily accessible, at a regular, predicted cost, and still have room in your home for your family and friends!
