We never seem to have enough of it when it comes to storage. Over time, homeowners accumulate a variety of things, some of which we need and others which we do not. We still end up with too much stuff and not enough space, and we either have to throw things away or rent a self storage unit to store things in, wasting precious storage space in our own homes. The typical one-car garage is 250 square feet and has about 60 linear feet of wall space. Garages are often underutilised, if not entirely unutilized. It’s a waste of space that, if properly used, might save you a lot of money over time. read more
We did an online search for monthly storage unit rentals and received quotes from a range of well-known self-storage companies. To get an average rate, we looked at different cities across the country and came up with a range of prices.
You could easily buy garage storage cabinets for that amount of money and store your belongings at home, where they are more easily available, cleaner, and less costly. The best thing about purchasing garage cabinets is that they are yours until you pay for them, and you don’t have to purchase them all at once. Buy as many cabinets as you can afford right now, and you can always add more later if you like. Monthly payments on garage cabinets will stop, but monthly storage unit payments will not, and the monthly storage unit cost will only increase over time. Cabinet prices vary more than storage unit prices, but they don’t have to be prohibitively costly.
