You hear the word downsizing a lot these days, especially now that many baby boomers are now finding themselves in another category: empty nesters. But whether you’re an empty nester or are simply looking to downsize for other reasons, one of the most daunting thoughts is, “What am I going to do with all of my stuff?” That thought can leave many deciding downsizing, even if it offers a considerable cost savings or will provide many conveniences, will have to wait.
But your desire to downsize doesn’t have to be delayed or fall into the “I’ll get around to it someday” category. A portable storage container offers an easy and quick downsizing storage solution that allows you to keep those treasures you don’t want to sell or give away. (Note to empty nesters: your children will probably want or need some of those treasures in the near or distant future.)
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
You might imagine a portable storage container as a box that’s dropped off at your home and left, sitting in your driveway indefinitely after it’s been filled up. This definitely doesn’t sound like something that will improve your home’s curb appeal and enhance its overall value while it’s on the market. But with a SAM storage container, you can ensure your storage container experience will be a convenient, safe solution to your downsizing dreams.
Secure Storage Center
A SAM Store and Move portable storage container will only be on your property for as long as it takes you to load it with the belongings that you remove from your home to stage it to sell. These are things such as photographs, out of season clothing, keepsakes and mementos, extra furniture, and items that are not essential to everyday life. Once your container is filled, we come back and take it to be stored offsite at a our secure storage center that is:
- climate controlled to ensure your items won’t be subject to extreme temperatures,
- equipped with a sprinkler system,
- easy to access in the event you need to retrieve an item quickly and conveniently, and
And storing your items offsite in an enclosed, climate-controlled environment will eliminate one of the storage industry’s greatest enemies: moisture. When your kids come calling for that sofa or bedroom set, you don’t want to hand over something that’s covered with mold and mildew.
