Plan Ahead for Self-Storage Needs

What is the main factor that leads you to rent a self-storage unit? For many people, it happens because of an urgent situation or through a major cleaning. Your house is crowded with extra furniture and you need a place to put it because you’re not ready to sell or give it away. Or, maybe you sustain some damage at home after a hurricane and must move your belongings while you repair or renovate.

Norfolk’s a military town, so often people move at short notice. These are just some examples that inspire a last minute search for self-storage options in Norfolk.

At Tidewater Drive Storage Center, we are ready to accommodate people with a critical need for storage space. If you have questions about the right unit for your belongings, or about climate control and access, we’re happy to help. You may think self-storage isn’t in your future, but there are signs to watch for, and it’s a good idea to have a place in mind when it’s time. Let’s look at a few.

Unexpected Changes

Accidents and sudden illnesses happen when you least expect. Depending on the severity, you may have to use special equipment while you or your loved ones recover. When you no longer need the walker or wheelchair, Storage can keep it safe until such a time you require it again. Storage also comes in handy when you need to move things out of the house to make way for ADA-compliant furniture.

Family Matters

Think ahead when you have kids. As they grow, their interests will change and they’ll outgrow clothes and furniture. An investment in a small unit like a 5×5 space can give you room to breathe and a place to put unused cribs and toys until you decide to sell or keep for the next child.

Also, if you are the only child and your parents must come to live with you when they are elderly, you know to expect that day to come. Self-storage is a viable option for holding heirloom furniture and valuables until you decide what stays in the family and what you intend to sell.

The Big Purchase

If you’ve dreamed of owning a classic car or a boat, but you don’t want to keep them in your driveway, you’ll need to factor storage into your budget as you shop around. At Tidewater Drive Storage Center, we have units capable of holding automobiles and power boats. We are happy to discuss monthly rates with you and determine if you are eligible for military discounts.
