Most people are unaware of the Storage Industry and the concept of renting a storage unit is not yet part of their lifestyle. At Montreal Mini-Storage, we believe that investing in Self-Storage, for both long-term and short-term contracts, is a wise and, oftentimes, necessary decision. If you still need convincing, here are the top 5 reasons why you should consider signing a self-storage lease.
As many studies have shown, a cluttered and messy living or working space not only negatively impacts your day-to-day life, but also has long-term consequences to your mental and physical health. A tidy home is a happy home. We know that having too much stuff is less than ideal, but getting rid of it can be harder than we realise. A storage unit can give you all the time you need to organize and sort through your personal belongings and choose which ones bring you happiness or toss out those that no longer do.
Moving to a brand new home is no easy feat, especially during the Coronavirus crisis. It can cause stress, anxiety and things do not always go as planned. Maybe your home’s construction has been delayed. Maybe you are still unsure of which items and large furniture to keep. Maybe you need to make multiple moves from house to house, and you simply cannot afford the moving services at the moment. Whatever the reason, having a storage unit for a few months before or even after your move can alleviate a lot of the hassles that come with it.
Commercial real-estate is getting more and more expensive as time goes by. Fewer businesses can afford the high rents and frequent rental hikes of retail spaces. Furthermore, as the Covid-19 crisis forced many employees to work from home, the demand for commercial office spaces has dwindled exponentially. Not only do storage spaces offer cheaper rent and a more flexible contract, it can also help you organize your inventory, files and office supplies, and will give you all the time you need to re-evaluate your business structure all-together.
Winters in Montreal are brutal. The freezing winds and piles of snow discourage many Montrealers to not only drive their vehicle, but make it a real hassle for them to park on the street. The best and safest way to commute in Montreal during the winter is to use the city’s public transportation services. In the mean-time, you can store your car, motorcycle or scooter at a trusted storage facility. It will keep it safe and ready to use for the much anticipated Spring and Summer months.
If the world continues to change the way that it is, we believe that, at some point in the near future, most households will most likely have a storage unit. Future generations will unfortunately never be able to afford a 2-storey house with a pool in the suburbs like their parents and grandparents once did. And as our population keeps growing, most people will be forced to live in smaller spaces, especially in the city. No longer will city-dwellers have attics and basements to store their belongings in. In these circumstances, a storage unit is, not only handy, but will be essential to have.
Before it becomes the newest trend, before your ideal facility runs out of storage units altogether, before supply cannot possibly meet demand, it is important to make self-storage a part of your lifestyle today.
At Montreal Mini-Storage, we believe that a storage unit is an extension of your home or business and, as such, should be treated like a long-term and serious investment.
