Life Changes and How Storage Can Help

Written on: November 18th, 2021

People use storage for a variety of reasons throughout their life. When going through life changes such as moving, marriage, getting a new job or downsizing, you may need temporary or long-term storage to store your belongings. Here are 5 life changes you may experience and how storage can help with each transition:

Moving Homes

Moving to a new home can be both stressful and exciting. There is a lot of planning that goes into your move including packing, deciding whether to use movers and deciding what items to bring to your new home. For those who are moving into a smaller home or going from a home with a garage to one without a garage, you should consider self-storage as an option. Think of it as an extension of your new home where you can store your extra belongings in a clean and secure environment. There are heated self-storage options as well as a variety of sizes to meet your needs, all ground level.

Getting a New Job

Congratulations, you have finally scored that promotion or got the dream job you have been after for years. However, sometimes your job may need you to relocate temporarily to another location. Self-storage can help if you need a temporary or permanent solution in Calgary to store your extra belongings. Keep the belongings important to you in a small or medium storage unit. With 24 hours CCTV surveillance, mobile security patrols, and pest control on-site, you can ensure your belongings are taken care of.

Getting Married

Getting married is an extremely exciting event. If you and your partner were living in 2 separate households, you likely need extra space for some of your stuff. Removing the excess clutter and putting the extra belongings in self-storage is the ideal solution. You can start with a large storage unit and organize what you want to keep and what you want to sell. You can downsize to a medium or small storage unit when after deciding what to keep. Marriage is a long-term commitment; self-storage is a short-term commitment where you can change unit sizes as needed and the flexibility can be very helpful to newlyweds.

Seniors Downsizing

Seniors downsize homes for many reasons including saving money, wanting to travel, or having lots of unused space in their home. When downsizing you may have an attachment to some of your belongings. You may not be ready to let go of certain items. Self-storage is a great solution for seniors as it gives them secure space to store their valuables which they no longer have room for. With card access, you have access to your belongings whenever needed. Check out our article on storage tips for seniors downsizing.

Becoming a New Parent

One of the greatest joys in life is bringing a new child into to the world. This is a very exciting time as you are going to become a parent. However, you may now need to free up room in your home for your baby’s new room. Self-storage can remove any stress as we have small and medium storage units available to free up space for the baby. All units are ground-level, meaning it is easy to put things in and take things out as you need.

Whether you’re moving, getting married, becoming a new parent, downsizing, getting a new job or going through another transition, self-storage can help remove any stress.
