3 Creative Uses for Your Local Storage Unit

Local storage units might be boxes, but that doesn’t mean you have to think inside the box when using them. Here are a few creative uses for self storage.

3 Creative Uses for Your Local Storage Unit

1. As An Extra Closet

Have too many clothes for your current setup? Your best friend might tell you it’s time to Marie Kondo your closet, but what if everything in there “sparks joy”?¬†Store your extra clothes in your local storage unit until you need them again.

Or what if you have several children and their hand-me-downs are really cramping your style and filling up every nook and cranny in your home? You don’t want to throw the extra clothing out only to have to buy more later as the younger kids grow. Self storage units give you options. Use one to store the too small clothing until the next kid grows into it.

2. For Your Small Business

It’s not usually a good idea (or even legal) to run a business from a local storage unit. But that doesn’t mean self storage can’t help you run your small business.

An online retail business, for instance, might need a safe place to store inventory. An artist could use a storage unit to store art pieces between gallery openings. And a building contractor might use a unit to store tools and supplies.

3. For Vehicle Storage

Think self storage units are just for clothes, furniture, and smaller items? Think again! Your extra vehicles could benefit from a local storage unit as well.

Consider this scenario. You purchased an RV for your summer adventures, but your Homeowner’s Association forbids you from parking it in your driveway. What are you supposed to do? Thankfully, many self storage companies offer vehicle storage units or lots for just such these situations.

At Party Barn RV and Boat Storage, for instance, we offer storage options for RVs, cars, boats, and motorcycles.
