Self-Storage: A Modern Garage, Attic, and Basement in One

If you are living with family members and have been residing in a place for a long period, you probably have accumulated a lot of stuff, occupying maybe almost every space in your house, including the garage, attic, and basement.

A growing family means an increasing number of items. Let me give you some usual scenarios. Seasonal clothes start piling up. If your children are into sports, various sports equipment begin to cram up your place. Old books from previous school years start stacking up. Shoes. OOTDs. Appliances. Gardening tools. Camping materials. A lot of stuff. Imagine that! If it's you, where are you going to keep all of them?

Garage, attic, and basement are the common places we automatically think of when we plan on keeping our items. Sometimes, even without knowing that our items might get damaged. Imagine the conditions of these places. They are not just right and fit for items needed to be stored in a climate-controlled environment.

Self-storage is the modern storage solution available today that can help you address problems with your growing items at home. Let’s face the fact that not all of us have been blessed with enough spaces to store unused, seasonal, and old valuables. So, I believe, self-storage is the perfect modern garage, attic, and basement for all of us.

We at easyStorage are ready to provide you the best solution for your storage needs. All of our facilities are climate-controlled and monitored by CCTV systems 24/7. These are the features you cannot get out of the traditional garage, basement, and attic. So, before I give you further details on the promising services that we can offer, let me first break down the common items that people tend to house in the traditional storage or the garage, basement, and attic.

Attic as Storage

The attic is one of our go-to spaces when it comes to storing extra stuff. However, if we forget our items being kept up there for a while, they might accumulate spider webs, dust, and rust. Worse, they might get damaged. Below are some of the items we tend to store in our attics.

• Holiday decorations

• Suitcases and travel bags

• Old books and magazines

• Kitchen supplies

• Old photos

• Seasonal clothes

Those items are quite pricey and might hold sentimental values. I guess you need to think twice before storing them up in the attic.  

Basement as Storage

The basement is commonly spacious compared to attics. Thus, some of our large items such as washers and dryers are being stored down there. But this part of the house is most susceptible to pests and leaks that might damage your stuff. Below are the items we should avoid storing in the basement for a long time as they are prone to damage.

• Furniture

• Delicate fabrics

• Family heirlooms

• Unused gym equipment

Garage as Storage

The garage is one of the most accessible storage places in the house since you don’t have to go up or down the stairs just to get there. However, the garage area is most likely prone to extreme heat and cold, giving you an idea not to store items that can be easily damaged by extreme temperature. Garages are also prone to moisture, humidity, dirt, and dust since they are located mostly outside of the house. Below are common items we store in our garages.

• Extra refrigerator or freezer

• Wooden furniture

• Sports equipment

• Electronics

Since we have these extra spaces available, we sometimes tend to store whichever fits in them just to free up more spaces in our house, neglecting the possible damage they can pose on our items. We always tend to think of the additional cost of renting a self-storage. Thus, we cram those items in our attic, basement, and garage. But why so? Here at easyStorage, we offer 50% cheaper pricing with no hidden charges. Our pricing never increases. Self-storage is not that expensive than most people thought of. It is still possible to enjoy the benefits without the need to pay for too much. If you have too many items to store, don’t you think it’s time to consider self-storage as your modern storage solution?
