Storage solutions: Should you rent or buy?
It doesn’t take much to acquire a lot of things before you’ll need a storage solution. Over the years, between all the gifts, tools, and just day to day living we acquire many things. However, as our belongings increase our ability to store it more or less stays the same. That is, unless we take matters into our own hands. If you have an attic, garage, or basement that is overflowing then it’s time to consider another storage option. There are many alternatives at your disposal. But one looming question remains. How do you know whether you should rent or buy a storage unit? That is the question we have set out to answer.
Rent is good as a temporary solution but it’s a far cry from an optimal solution in the long term. If you are trying to move, then a rented area may be best, but honestly, there are more downsides to renting. Firstly, rented storage units are often very expensive. Renting storage may cost anywhere from $150 to $250 per month or more (and that depends on a variety of factors, such as the storage location, amount of storage space, and the company). You also will not be able to access your belongings outside of business hours or keep an eye on your belongings.
Purchasing a storage unit offers more convenience. You only have to make a one-time payment for the storage solution. If it is on your property, you can also keep an eye on it. You don’t need to worry about waiting for certain times to access your property. Additionally, if you are having the storage solution built, you can request to have it constructed to your specifications.
