Top 3 Ways Self-Storage Can Save You Money
While it’s always important to focus on saving money, it’s even more important to do so during times when the economy may be headed for a recession! You’ve likely noticed rising prices everywhere—from the gas station to the grocery store—and you may be wondering how on earth you can save money these days.
There are, of course, the traditional ways: eating out less, driving less, and examining your budget for areas you can cut back. However, we’ve got a solution you may not have thought of— storage units!
These are three of the top ways that a storage unit can save you money:
- You can stock up on bulk items and store them. However, it is very important to remember that you are prohibited from storing perishable items or things like seeds or nuts or similar items that might attract pests to your self storage unit. If you do, and an infestation occurs, you will be charged for dealing with the infestation! If you have any doubt about what you can put in a self storage unit, please contact Abacus and we will be pleased to help you get clear on this matter.
- You can save on rent or mortgage payments because you’ll need less space in your residence.
- You can save on moving expenses.
At Abacus Self Storage, we offer storage units conveniently located near Markham that are temperature controlled and offer excellent security.
You Can Stock Up on Bulk Items and Store Them
A storage unit in or close to Markham can save you money by providing a place to store bulk purchases. If you see things that are non-perishable and store well (such as toilet paper and canned goods) on sale and want to take advantage of an excellent deal, you aren’t limited to buying only what you can store in your house or apartment. Instead, you can purchase as much as you want and keep the excess in your storage unit until you’re ready to use it.
One of the best times to buy an item for a deep discount is just after it’s out of season. Whether that’s wrapping paper after Christmas or a barbecue as we head into winter, you can get great deals if you’re willing to shop in the off-season! Then, you just store your items in your storage unit until you’re ready to use them.
You Can Save on Rent or Mortgage Payments
Whether you’re buying a house or a condo or renting an apartment, there’s one thing that’s always consistent: the bigger your house or condo or apartment, the more it’s going to cost you.
You don’t want to spend extra money just because you need to buy a bigger place to store your excess stuff. Instead, you can rent a storage unit to keep items that you may need from time to time or on a seasonable basis, but which you don’t need right now.
Your things will stay safe in your storage unit, where you can access them whenever you need them. As well, if you find you haven’t bothered getting some items after they’ve been in your storage unit for a while, that may be a sign it’s time to get rid of them, and downsizing your self storage unit.
You Can Save on Moving Expenses
Moving can be an overwhelming and exhausting experience—not to mention expensive. Renting a storage unit can help you save on moving expenses and potentially avoid hiring movers.
With a storage unit, you can temporarily store items you won’t need immediately before or after you move, such as Christmas decorations and seasonal items like skis or pool toys. This cuts down on the amount of stuff that actually needs to be taken care of on moving day. In turn, this reduces the items you need to pay professionals to move or enables you to move without professional help.
