Why You Should Consider Full Service Storage

Why You Should Consider Full Service Storage

Storage is a massive industry, especially in America, where the average home has over 300,000 items. The self-storage revenue for 2016 was estimated to be around $32.7 billion in 2016, and is predicted to grow 3.5% in five years. That’s a large number for renting space, of all things. Even if that space is secure.

There are many different types of storage, too. From climate controlled personal storage, business storage units, and what is called full-service storage. Each one of these storage solutions geared to helping their clients with their individual needs.

But what does something like “full service storage” mean? And how does it work?

Well, full-service storage is a convenient and affordable way to store belongings, and it usually involves the storage company picking up, storing, and delivering your items on demand. It’s a great solution for temporary and long-term needs. All you, as the customer, have to do is pack up your items at home, labeling them properly. The company will take care of everything else.

Full-service storage is also called “on-demand” storage, or “valet storage.”

So, unlike traditional self-storage, you don’t have to do it all yourself. You don’t have to rent a moving truck, hire moving help, or transport the items to the storage facility yourself. And you don’t have to worry about packing them away, and sorting, either. Full-service saves you time, and potentially money, too.

Another benefit is that with some companies you can keep track of all the items stored, or the teams progress, online. The items can be stored in an online account, and you can request them back at any time online, or request to add more items, or even more storage space. This is done with a barcode scan for each package before transport to a secure facility.

Now, for security reasons, most full-service storage facilities are closed to the public. You can’t actually visit your unit to get your items, you have to ask for them to be delivered back to you. That can both be a blessing and a curse. You don’t have to deal with storage units, but you have to wait.

Space is a priceless thing, especially in your home. A place to put your possessions, things that hold value or memories that you don’t want to part with. But the truth is that there is a lot less space in your home than you think. According to statistics, 25% of people with two-car garages don’t actually have the ability to park two cars, because they fill the space with their belongings.

That means that 25% of people have a car’s worth of items that they aren’t actively using, but have nowhere else to put it. That’s a lot of space that could be freed up.

And that’s where on-demand storage comes into play.

There are many benefits to having on demand storage for you, or your business. You’ll be able to better prioritize your belongings because they’re one click away and organized in an online catalog. By figuring out what to store, and what to keep in the house, you’ll see what no longer suits you at the time. You should clearly label every box with what’s exactly in it. That will make it easier to sort through at a later date if you need to find something.

Maybe you have decor you’ve held on to for years, or clothes and items you don’t care for and that doesn’t match you anymore. You’ll be able to figure out what to do with them after this point.

You’ll also make your home more livable. Clearing out things like unused bikes, craft supplies, and clothes opens more space for living. You can finally park that second car in the garage, you’ll be able to reorganize and redecorate and enjoy the feeling of having a “new” home.
