Scenarios where you’ll benefit from temporary storage

Life comes at you pretty fast so you never know when you’re going to have to adjust on the fly to the changes that hit before you can prepare. With help from a temporary storage unit, you can take some time to breathe and evaluate the situation before moving forward. At Reliable Properties, we offer temporary storage to help with these situations. If you haven’t thought about utilizing a temporary unit, we have a few scenarios where you can benefit from one.


It’s not uncommon to have to bridge a housing arrangement while you either wait to buy a new home, need to finish construction, or are even to a point where you’re waiting to sign the paperwork. In these situations, you’re going to have to find a bridge housing situation to make sure you have a roof over your head for a few weeks or months. Although, you might not always have enough room for your belongings in this temporary living situation so a storage unit is the best solution. You can sign a month-to-month lease on a storage unit so you have a safe and secure place to store your belongings while you find a new home.

Change in relationship

The end of a relationship can come suddenly. If you’re the one moving out, it can be tough to find a new living situation at the drop of a hat. Should you end up crashing on a friend’s couch or in an extra bedroom somewhere for a few weeks, you’re not going to have space for your belongings. Put it in a temporary storage unit so you don’t have to worry about lugging it around with you until you find a permanent situation or your ex selling it on the Facebook marketplace.

Selling your home

Some of the first advice you’re going to get when selling your home is to depersonalize the space. This often involves taking photos down off the walls, painting walls, and arranging furniture in a way that creates a neutral space. You’re not always going to have the storage space in your home without creating extra clutter, which is another to-do item. A temporary storage unit is a great place to put some boxes while your house is on the market so you can keep it tidy while trying to sell. What’s more, then you’ll have a few boxes ready to go when it’s time to move.

Home remodel

If you’re doing significant work on a home renovation, you can be displaced for several months at a time. Even if you’re doing work in a single room, you’re going to have to move furniture out so the crew can work efficiently. Your garage is always an option, but then you have displaced vehicles and you might not have the space for furniture to begin with. A temporary storage unit is an affordable and easy solution for your things while you have work done on your home.

Seasonal home for equipment

Not everybody has the space to store a lawn mower and a snowblower in the garage. You can create a home away from home for your seasonal equipment that you don’t want to keep at your house with a temporary storage unit. This makes it easier to keep these items safe from the elements so they’re not kept outside and exposed to rain, wind, snow, and dirt.
