A New Year brings a new dawn, and if you haven’t already made a New Year Resolution, then perhaps you should consider renting a self-storage unit as this year’s resolution.

Whether you are a homeowner wanting to start the year with a decluttered house or a business needing to create a cost-effective way of holding stock or equipment, a self-storage unit can help.

But that’s only scratching the surface. A self-storage unit is a versatile space solution that can be put to a multitude of uses. Here are just a few of the multitude of ways that a self-storage unit can help you in 2022.

1 Spring Cleaning

The festivities are over for another year, and the guests have left. It is always a good time of year to give homes a thorough spring cleaning from top to bottom. A self-storage unit is the perfect cleaning assistant.

Not only does it allow you to declutter the house and store rarely used items (including all those Christmas decorations). But it also allows you to move bulky items out of the way whilst the carpets and floors are being cleaned.

Self-storage units can be rented for as short or long a time as you require and are available for as little as a few Euros a week.

2 A Stock room for your business

Premises can be expensive – rents or mortgages, business rates, maintenance, and insurances, it all soon adds up to a major outlay of capital. Understandably, many businesses make do with whatever space they’ve got rather than deal with the expense and hassle of new premises.

But a self-storage unit is different and could be the perfect solution. Clean, dry, and highly secure, self-storage units are available in a wide range of sizes to perfectly fit all needs. That’s just the start; with one affordable rental payment, you can wave goodbye to expensive maintenance and other costs normally associated with premises.

Access isn’t a worry either, at U Store It, all our units are open during normal business hours, and access outside these can be easily arranged.

3 Renovations and Decorating

If 2022 is a year that you plan to have a decorating spree or even some renovations, then a self-storage unit is the perfect solution to help the task run more smoothly.

Furniture and other belongings spend most of the time being shuffled from room to room when homes are being decorated, and the situation is much the same, if not worse, when it comes to renovations. This can lead to damaged or paint splashed belongings and slows down the task in hand at the same time.

A self-storage unit allows you to clear unnecessary items completely out of the way during the work and allows all those renovations or decorating to run more smoothly.

All our self-storage units have covered loading bays and plenty of parking, so moving your stuff into a unit is a complete breeze.

4 Seasonal Business Storage

Many business types are faced with the difficulty of seasonal swings in the amount of storage they need. For example, landscape gardeners will require lawnmowers and other bulky equipment throughout the summer months but rarely in the winter.

Once again, self-storage can come to the rescue. Because they can be rented on an “as needed” basis, businesses only need to pay for storage for the exact time they require it for and no more.

So, whether you run adventure tours in the summer, or a firewood company in the winter, a self-storage unit can help you with all your storage needs during the off-season.

5 Seasonal storage for the home

Not only businesses suffer from seasonal variations in storage requirements, many householders have the same problem.

A self-storage unit can help you keep valuables like bikes, camping equipment, fishing gear, skis, Christmas decorations and much more, in tip-top condition right through until they are needed again.

At U Store It, our clean, dry and well-maintained will keep all that valuable equipment safe and secure when it is not in use.

6 Selling your home

Keeping your home in perfect condition and looking at its very best is essential when it is up for sale. Uncluttering it means it looks more appealing to potential buyers and is easier to keep clean and tidy for viewings.

A self-storage unit can help you sell your home faster by enabling you to move all non-essential items out of the home when it is on the market. Because our units can be rented for a flexible period, it also means you don’t have to worry about your goods until your property is sold.

7 Running a business from home

Running a business from home is a great way to keep business expenses to a minimum. But it can also put a strain on home-living by taking up all the available storage space.

A self-storage unit is a perfect answer. If your business has outgrown your home, then it can provide a cost-effective way of keeping your business running efficiently without cluttering up your living space.

It is also a scalable solution. If your business outgrows your storage unit, no problem, at U Store It, we will always make sure your storage needs are met.

8 Moving Home

A self-storage unit can help take much of the stress from the hassle of moving home. Whether you need it for temporary storage when you are in-between homes, use it to store unneeded furniture, or simply as a holding bay whilst you get everything organised, a self-storage unit can do all this and more.

Moving home is one of the most stressful situations that we ever face, and a self-storage unit can help make the process far less of a strain.

9 For the hobbyist

If your hobby has outgrown your home, then a self-storage unit can ease the burden by allowing you to continue expanding your hobby without contracting the space you live in!

Whether you are a model railway enthusiast or have a houseful of fishing gear, a self-storage unit could be the answer you are looking for. With convenient access and sites throughout Ireland, a U Store It unit can help you with your hobby.
