Taking on a home improvement project is no easy task. Whether you are doing a minor renovation or a complete remodel, things tend to get crowded when you start moving them around in your home. You need to make room for the tools, equipment, and workers who will temporarily be taking over your space. While you can do your best to protect your belongings and stay organized, it can be quite challenging when you have contractors trekking in and out of your house. Renting a portable storage unit can ease the burden and help keep your belongings safe during a home improvement project. Here are just a few of the ways a storage unit can help.


Store Furniture Out of the Way

Home improvement projects require a great deal of space so there is no doubt you will need to move furniture out of the way during the remodel. Instead of cramming everything into the hallway and the spare bedroom, consider moving it into a portable storage unit. Here, it will remain safe from damage while also freeing up space in your home. This will also make it easier for workers to get in and out of your home. Home improvement projects can be stressful enough so don’t add to that stress by crowding your space with extra furniture.


Keep Household Items Organized

Things are constantly getting moved around during a home renovation and it’s easy for these items to get lost, misplaced, or even broken. A portable storage unit allows you to keep your belongings neatly organized and out of the way so you can easily find what you are looking for. Personal items like jewelry, clothing, and toiletries as well as household goods including kitchen supplies and electronics are perfect examples of items that need to be kept organized.


Protect Your Belongings from Damage

No matter how well you cover your furniture and move items out of the way, your belongings are susceptible to damage during a home renovation. In order to protect your items from dirt, dust, debris, and paint, it is best to store them in a portable storage unit where they are completely separate from the work area.


Keep Valuables Safe from Theft

While you can do your best to protect your valuables from theft during a home renovation, you cannot always be home to keep a watchful eye on things. A portable storage unit is a great place to store your valuable so you can be sure they will remain safe and secure throughout your home improvement project.
