Storage lockers - a multi-billion dollar enterprise.
We have too much stuff, and no room in our home lives to keep it, so we pay someone else to hold it for us.
I had to rent one - in between one house and another. All of my beloved possessions and household items were in boxes, stacked high, and very difficult to access. In the short term, while waiting for the renovation to be completed, anything we needed on a daily basis was re-purchased. When we were finally able to move into our home, having doubles of many things made for a great garage sale! But really?
Storage units are a great help for short term situations, but I quitte often hear about people who have had the same things in the same storage unit for years and years, and the monthly fees keep going up, and they keep paying.
This monthly bill is reminder that, in many cases, we just have too much "stuff"!
If you have one, and really dislike that reminder, try asking this...
Should your storage facility have a fire, what would you want saved from your unit?
If you can't answer that question, it's time to consider getting rid of it all. If you can answer, bring it home today, and let the rest of it go. When you think about it, paying rent on stuff we really do not treasure is absurd, and very expensive. Perhaps you are hanging on to things from the past, an inheritance, or boxes of unknowns from your grandparents basement. Maybe you use storage units because there is no room for this stuff at your home.
Maybe we need to ask ourselves... is it really worth it.
Can we help you answer that question? We have the knowledge and expertise, the brains and the brawn to help you deal with all of that unknown. If there is anything of value in the locker, A2B Estate Service will let you know, and find the right buyer for it. If you don't even know or remember what there is in all those boxes, we can sort it for you, providing you with an itemized list, and help you determine your next course of action.
We can also help you to clear it out, for delivery to your house, or donation, and sweep it clean, so you can end that monthly fee once and for all.
