Thinking about getting some self storage in Singapore, but not too sure about the cost, type of space or how it works? Here are four reasons why this extra storage space could become an essential part of your life. Plus, there’s a great offer that will make you jump at the chance to try it!
#1 For a shrinking home space
If you intend on downsizing or you’re moving to a newer apartment in Singapore (the new ones usually have much smaller rooms), there will definitely be items that you want to move but can’t due to space constraints. Even if all your items could fit, you don’t want the space to feel crammed. Getting hold of the floor plan of your new abode will give you the exact measurements so you can properly determine the household items you want to use, the ones you can sell and those that you can’t use just at the moment but you’d still like to keep. This latter category can be moved into a secured self-storage space; some storage facilities and operators even offer free transportation services.
#2 For added protection
Established self-storage operators also offer air-conditioned storage space, giving added protection to your special items. These units minimise the dust and debris that your items collect. They also reduce moisture from forming, which would otherwise cause certain items sensitive to temperature fluctuations like wood, certain fabrics and paper to give way.
#3 For the hobbyists
Many people enjoy making time for hobbies as a way of unwinding. You may have hobbies that come with gear and equipment, or collections of figurines or shoes; if you’re an avid traveller, you might have chunky winterwear taking up storage space at home – space that could otherwise be enjoyed by your children. All these items you hold dear can be stored away in a facility near you, and with 24/7 access. This way, you won’t feel compelled to choose one over the other; plus, you can keep all your hobby items in your self-storage space without taking up the kids’ areas at home.
#4 For the cost-savvy
Cost may be an initial concern when you barely have storage space at home and you find yourself thinking about renting at a self-storage facility. Yet, in comparison to upsizing your home to fit all your things, renting a self-storage unit is much more affordable and secure, especially if it’s long-term storage. There are various self-storage unit sizes available, and you can upsize your unit as your inventory grows (or decreases, if you’re decluttering!) in size. You only pay for the size you need – that’s how flexible the storage terms are.
