Use Smartbox During Reno

Warmer weather is upon us and that means it’s the perfect time for a home renovation project. Many people choose to begin home renovations in the spring so they can enjoy their new home during the summer months. While renovations are certainly fun and exciting, they can also be stressful.  Depending on the extent of your project, you might be giving up a significant amount of space in your home temporarily.  This can certainly cause frustration.  However, if you are planning to begin a home renovation project, consider renting a portable storage unit to maximize space and make the entire process less stressful.  Here are just a few of the ways a portable storage unit can help you maximize space during a renovation.



Renovations require a lot of tools and materials and this takes up a great deal of space in your home. Before you begin a home renovation it is important to declutter so you can make room for the additional materials. With a portable storage unit you can easily remove unwanted clutter and store it inside until the project is complete. 


Storing Furniture

You will have to move large pieces of furniture and bulky items out of the way during a renovation.  Many people end up storing these items in hallways, closets, or bedrooms during the renovation.  Unfortunately, this makes for very crowded spaces and it can be difficult to move freely about your home. Free up space in your home by storing your furniture and accessories in a portable storage unit during the renovation.  Not only will this maximize space in your home, but it will ensure your belongings are safe from damage during the renovation.


Storing Tools and Materials

Whether you are hiring professionals or completing the job yourself, your home is going to be filled with plenty of tools and materials during a renovation.  This can take up a great deal of space in your home.  A portable storage unit is the perfect solution for storing tools and materials on-site and out of the way.


Storing Your Belongings

Depending on the room that is being renovated, there will be lots of belongings that have to be moved to a new spot temporarily.  Kitchen renovations, for example, require moving all of your food items, utensils, cookware, plates, and cups to another room while the kitchen is being remodeled.  Instead of cramping other spaces in your home with all of these items you can store them in a portable storage unit where they will be out of your way but still easily accessible.
