Whether you were born in a big city, or like most people, move to one later on in life, cities are an exciting place to live. However, one of the biggest complaints about it is that space can be limited. More people means less space. But you don’t need to downsize your life to enjoy the fast-paced and exciting lifestyle of a big city. Having a storage unit can avoid a lot of potential issues when it’s come to living in a smaller space in the city!
Here are some ways a storage unit can make living in the city easier.
Since homes and apartments tend to be smaller in the city, sometimes you need to consider yourself lucky to have a closet, let alone two! So instead of getting rid of all your clothes and rebuying with each season, a storage unit is perfect for storing your garments, footwear and accessories. This way your closet is not bursting with clothes but rather organized and civilized.
Helps When You Need to Move
Your average person new to a large city will move about three times within the first five years. With different unique neighbourhoods, possible roommate changes or relocating for a new job opportunity, moving around is common until you find the right place. By using self-storage, you don’t have to worry about closing dates to match up or having to move all at once. Self-storage allows you to move at your own pace.
Parking is limited in the city and permits can be expensive. Not to mention that it’s hard to justify having a car when most large cities have a convenient transit system. However, if you own a car, you probably don’t want to get rid of it. With grocery shopping, road trips and going back to your hometown for visits, it can be handy to have a car. By renting a parking spot at a storage unit, you can rest assured your car/van/truck will be safe and secure and you can use it when you need.
Small Space? No Problem
Just because you live in the city, doesn’t mean you need to live a minimalist lifestyle. But by storing away your holiday or seasonal items, larger furniture or items you are not in constant need of, a storage unit is perfect for when you don’t want to part with things you don’t use all the time. It frees up space in your home and gives you the peace of mind that they will be there for when you need.
Using a bicycle is steadily becoming a favourite mode of transportation in the city. Its fast, environmentally friendly and best of all, FREE! However, it’s safe to say that in most, if not all cities in Canada, there are snowy months were cycling is not an ideal way of getting from point A to point B. This is where having a storage unit not only keeps your bike safe during the snowy months, and it also protects it against the harsh weather.
City living doesn’t mean you need to change your lifestyle completely. There are so many perks about living in a city, using self-storage can be one of them!
