Rent A Storage Unit If Your Clothing Collection Exceeds Your Storage Space At Home

One of the best things about a self-storage unit is that you can rent it specifically for your unique purposes. Whereas someone might rent the unit to store a fishing boat, you can rent space to provide a venue for your clothing. If you have enough clothing that you're constantly switching your wardrobe with each changing season, the space at the storage center can come in handy. Here are some specific reasons why you should consider this form of off-site storage for your clothing.

Easier To See What You Have

When you have a sizable collection of clothing for each season, your closets and dressers can get cluttered. This can make it difficult to take stock of what you actually have, which can mean that you end up wasting time looking for a certain item or even forgetting that you owned a certain something. A solution is to rent a small storage unit and transport your clothing to the unit for storage at the end of each season. For example, when winter approaches, you can take all your summer attire and light fall attire to the storage unit until the spring.

Ability To Store Items More Efficiently

If you're already in the habit of removing items from your closet each season and storing them, they likely end up getting folded, stuffed in a box and placed in the basement or attic. This can be a labor-intensive process, as when it's time to get these garments back out again, you'll need to spend a significant amount of time ironing them. In some cases, the creases might be significant enough that you need to wash and dry the garments. Instead, equip your storage unit with some hanging bars and you'll be able to place your items in garment bags and hang them properly. This will ensure that they're in perfect condition when you retrieve them to wear.

Opportunity To Have A Clothing Sale

If you ever reach a point that you want to sell some of your clothing, your self-storage unit will provide the perfect venue. Instead of having strangers enter your garage or even your home to peruse your items, you can amass the apparel that you wish to sell at the storage center. Then, you can advertise the sale in the community — the storage center might even have an annual day in which numerous tenants have sales — and then have people tour your space.
