The holidays are crazy. Obvious statement, but true nonetheless. And in Harwood, Maryland, odds are you’re going to be doing quite a bit of traveling during this time of year. There are all sorts of things that can make the holidays easier, but we bet you haven’t thought of this one: self storage. Yep, believe it or not, self storage can do a lot to bring back the merry, and Self Storage Services is going to explain exactly how.
#1 – Safe Travels
Folks in and around Harwood will be braving the weather, getting on planes, jumping in cars or even hitching a ride on the bus to go see family for the holidays. While they’re gone, they’re valuables are up for grabs by thieves. There are certain things you can fit in a safe, like jewelry or money, but what about larger items that have financial and sentimental value? That’s where storage comes in. Renting a unit in nearby Upper Marlboro will keep your items safe and your mind at ease, knowing they’re tucked in your locked unit, monitored 24/7 on a well-lit site.
#2 – Family Visits
Maybe you lucked out this year and you don’t have to fight the frost. This year, the family is coming to you. And that’s great, until you realize you have exactly nowhere to put them. You could clear out space in the spare bedroom, but where are all of those things going to go? We know: self storage. Renting a unit to fit your overflowing space is the perfect solution. You can pack it all up and temporarily store it until you are ready to bring it back. Aunt Bernice will have no complaints with all the space she gets!
#3 – Sneaky Santa
You’re a smart shopper, meaning you don’t go frantically rushing around on Christmas Eve for all of your gifts. You start a little early, but that ultimately means a higher chance of getting caught. Snoopy kids, accidental exposure and more are threatening to ruin your secret Santa surprise. That’s not a problem if you rent a self storage unit to hide your gifts until the big day. Even a small unit may be all you need, so check out your options using our handy storage sizing guide.
#4 – Post-Holiday Space Saver
Once the holidays are over, you quickly realized you just about doubled in items around your home. More toys, new television, and all those gift cards that will buy even more are threatening to overwhelm your space. Remember that storage unit you got for safe travels, family visits and sneaky Santa? Well it’s still there, and it’s even more valuable than ever. For now it’s out with the old, and in with the new. Once the weather becomes sane again, you can head to your unit and figure out exactly how to price each item for a garage sale or to sell online. And in the meantime, you’re still clutter-free.
So what you are waiting for? Make it much merrier this year with a storage unit. After all, it truly is the gift that keeps on giving … space!
