Why Sell When You Can Store? 3 Benefits of Storage vs. Selling

Why keep a ton of stuff you don’t need? Television shows are touting the benefits of getting rid of those items you don’t want any more. The logic may seem sound, but there is another side of the coin to consider. Instead of selling or donating belongings, why not keep them and find other ways to house them? We are not suggesting that you hold onto things that are not useful or are simply high on sentimental value. You can sort through and keep what your children may need in the future or things that you don’t have time to use currently but will enjoy during retirement.

Keep your belongings where you can have them when you need them. Enjoy an uncluttered home when you rent a self-storage unit near San Mateo. Our units can house your lesser-used items until you are ready to use them again. We will even move your stuff with our free moving van when you lease from us. It is possible to have the best of both worlds!

Weigh the Benefits of Storing Belongings Instead of Selling
Are you sitting on the fence trying to decide whether to keep or sell your stuff? Consider these benefits of storing instead of selling:
  1. You can keep what you want. It stands to reason, if you want to keep it all, you can. Of course, the goal is not to have so many belongings that you are overwhelmed. As you sort through your items, you’ll discover different categories that are useful during different times of the year. For example, you love kayaking but have no more room to keep the gear at home for the entire year. A storage unit allows you to keep your equipment handy until you want it, without cluttering your garage.
  2. You can switch things up. For those who love to decorate, it can get expensive. If you up-cycle, you may have many projects that you love but cannot display all at once. Consider your storage space as a zero-priced store where you can tuck decorations away for different holidays or the changing of the seasons. When it’s time to redecorate, you don’t have to head to the pricey department store. You can head to your personal treasure trove!
  3. You don’t have to repurchase an item. This may be the biggest reason to put things away instead of selling them. How many times have you moved that old weed eater around because you wanted a backup, but then decided to sell it? The moment it leaves your property, your other weed eater stops working. Now you have to go out and buy a new one. When you keep those higher-priced items in storage, you can save money later.
