If you are tired of cramming all of your belongings into closets or frustrated with looking for things that you can’t find, it might be time to look into some additional storage.  Renting a portable storage unit can be an easy and affordable way to store your belongings if you have limited space.  If you still aren’t sure if you need a portable unit, here are 6 signs you might need extra storage. 

Your closets are packed full but you don’t want to get rid of anything.

It might be that your closets are crammed but the contents inside are things that you still want or need.  They could be packed with sentimental keepsakes, holiday décor, sports equipment, or work-related items.  Whatever the reason, there is no need to use of all of your closet space storing these items.  Having additional storage outside of your home will allow you to hold onto your treasures and take back your closets!

You have large items that take up a lot of space.

Things like extra furniture, exercise equipment, and sports equipment can take up a lot of space in your home and garage but maybe you aren’t ready to get rid of these items.  Consider a portable storage unit for these large and bulky items that may have taken over a room in your home.  You will free up so much additional living space.

Your garage is so full you can’t park your car inside.

There is nothing wrong with using your garage for storage but when you garage becomes nothing BUT storage, you might have a problem on your hands. You are missing out on the opportunity to park your car inside and it can be overwhelming to look for items in a garage packed full of boxes.  A portable storage unit allows you to put your belongings in a neat space so you can park your car inside the garage.

You’ve turned a spared bedroom into a storage facility. 

We are all guilty of doing it at some point…shoving those boxes and rarely used items into a spare room and closing the door.  Don’t let your bed become a resting place for dusty books and boxes.  Reclaim your spare bedroom and enjoy having a place for guests by renting a portable storage unit.

You can’t find what you need because you are sorting through so much junk.

If you are constantly searching for something you need but only end up finding everything you don’t need, it might be time for some extra storage.  If your home is in need of de-cluttering but you just don’t have a place for everything, a portable storage unit is just what you need.  You will save a great deal of time and frustration by organizing your belongings and packing up those items you rarely use.

Your attic is packed to the brim and you can’t get inside.

The purpose of your attic is to provide storage, but your belongings should still be accessible.  What good is your attic if it’s so packed full that you can’t take one step inside?  Declutter and reorganize your space by renting a portable storage unit.  This will make it so much easier to get to those holiday decorations when the time comes.
