It’s easy to think that storing your extra stuff in the attic is an efficient way to declutter your home. After all, it’s easy access and no one else can use it, right? Wrong!

There are several reasons why using a self-storage facility makes more sense than storing your extra stuff in the attic. Let’s take a look at six of them.

Why Use a Self-Storage Facility Over an Attic for Your Extra Stuff

1. Temperature Control – Attics can get very hot in the summertime and very cold during the winter months. This makes it virtually impossible to store any kind of sensitive items such as furniture, electronics or even photographs safely in the attic. A self-storage facility, on the other hand, offers temperature controlled units that keep your items safe and sound no matter what season it is outside.

2. Security – Self-storage facilities offer 24/7 security with video surveillance so you know that whatever you’re storing is safe and secure from theft or vandalism. Many facilities also offer climate control units which adds another layer of protection against theft. Attics are not typically equipped with these types of security measures so they are much more vulnerable to theft or damage by pests and rodents.

3. Space – Attics can be cramped and cluttered spaces which can make it difficult to find anything you’re looking for when you need it quickly and easily. Self-storage facilities provide plenty of space for you to store all of your extra stuff without having to worry about tripping over things or not being able to find what you need when you need it most.

4. Insurance – Many self-storage facilities offer insurance options so that if something happens to your belongings while they’re in storage, you’ll be covered financially if you ever need to replace them down the road. Attics don’t typically offer this type of protection leaving homeowners at risk for financial loss should something happen to their belongings while stored away.

5. Accessibility – Self-storage facilities are typically open 24 hours a day so you can access your belongings whenever necessary without worrying about someone else having access or intruding on private property (i.e., your home). With an attic, there may be people who have access without permission which could lead to stolen items or worse, a break-in situation at your home if someone knows what is being stored up there!

6 .Organization – With a self-storage facility, you can organize all of your belongings in one place so that they’re easy to find when needed instead of searching through boxes stacked haphazardly in an attic somewhere! Plus, many storage units come with shelving units which make organizing even easier!

The Bottom Line

So next time you’re considering storing your belongings in the attic, think again! Attics are dusty, dark and full of little creepy crawlies. Not to mention, it can be dangerous going up and down a rickety ladder carrying heavy boxes of who-knows-what. Self storage is a much smarter solution for anyone looking for extra space. With online rentals and 24/7 access to your unit, self storage is convenient and easy to use. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your belongings are safe and sound. So if you need more space, don’t hesitate to rent self storage online today!
