How Self Storage Helps with Downsizing

Many Americans decide that downsizing is the best decision for them. Some are older and retired and just want a smaller place to live. In Mills River and Banner Elk, we’ve seen an influx of people moving to the mountains from the cities across North Carolina as more companies implement work from home models, thus allowing people to escape the hustle and bustle of cities and enjoy life in the country.

Whatever your reason for moving to Western North Carolina, don’t forget the benefit of using a self storage unit to hold your things. It saves you money, allows more time, and reduces stress.

It saves you money

The biggest pro for downsizing is saving money. When you downsize, you move to a smaller living quarters. This results in  lower mortgage payment and less money spent on utilities. That money can be used for other things like home projects, hobbies, travel, or giving.

Likewise, if you need to downsize for a short time, a self storage unit can help you accomplish you storage goals. Consider putting away the big items first. Sofas, dressers, beds, and other big items may need to be switched out for smaller things when downsizing.

It may be in your best interest to have a smaller home and rent a storage unit to hold the bigger things — short term or long term.

It allows you more time

Leases may not perfectly end at the same time you’re ready to move into a new home. Likewise, during this time of uncertainty during COVID, you may need a storage unit as you await word on what your rent situation might look like, or if the local university will be having in-person classes this semester.
