Self Storage During Transitions
Life transitions almost always bring about changes in our living situation and our available space. Whether you’re tying the knot, welcoming a new addition to the family, or downsizing now that the nest is empty, any big change in your life means a change in what you need around the house, how much space you have, and more.
Fortunately, self-storage in Missouri and Kansas can help you through all manner of life events, from the happiest of occasions to those that are more unexpected. Want to learn more? We’ve assembled a list of five of the most common life transitions that people experience every day and how self-storage in Kansas and Missouri can give you much-needed space to navigate each one.
New additions. When your home and family grow, it is always a joyous occasion, but it can also be a lot to get used to. Are you getting married? Moving in together? If you’re combining two families that already have children, that’s a big change to everyone’s living arrangements. If you’re welcoming a new baby or adopting a child, you’ll need lots of additional space that you didn’t need before. If one of your parents is moving in with you, they’ll need space, and you may need special accommodations if they have limited mobility. Whatever the case, you can make some extra room around the house with self-storage in Missouri or Kansas.
Downsizing. Just as changes come with new additions to the household, your situation may change when the nest is empty and all of a sudden that house seems too big for you. If you’re moving into a smaller home, you may want to rent a self-storage unit so that you have a place for all your old furniture, décor items, and everything else that you don’t have space for in the new home but aren’t yet willing to let go of.
Relocating. Moving is both exciting and stressful. Whether you’re moving because of a new job, a military reassignment, or any other reason, self-storage can help make the entire moving process go a lot more smoothly. Whether you need to purchase moving and packing supplies or you’re looking for a secure space to keep your stuff until you get settled in your new home, we’ve got you covered.
Children leaving home. When the kids go off to college or move out on their own, you’ll probably want to reclaim their old rooms for that sewing room you’ve always wanted, a guest bedroom, or some other purpose. That doesn’t mean that you want to get rid of all their stuff, however. A storage unit provides a safe, clean, out-of-the-way spot to keep everything until they need it again.
Difficult transitions. Of course, not every life change is joyous—or expected. All kinds of things can happen in life that may put you into a stressful and uncomfortable situation. Job loss, divorce, separation, or even a death in the family are all stressful enough on their own without the added worry about where you’re going to put everything until stuff settles down. Fortunately, a little extra space can provide a lot of peace of mind.
