Many things have changed in the way we work and live. Remote work has expanded, allowing people to reconsider their home space and even use such opportunities to combine travel and work. If you plan to be away from home for an extended period, self-storage can provide a solution for some of your needs.
Rent or Let?
If you own, you might consider renting your home in the short term but not necessarily furnishing it completely. Renting a Chesapeake self-storage unit keeps your most valuable furniture and belongings safe until you return for good. At Eden Way Storage Center, we offer units capable of accommodating inventory from efficiency apartments to entire homes. We can even assist you to find the suitable size for your needs.
Is That Appropriate?
For a lengthy stay away from your city of residence, it’s important to have a plan. Who will hold your mail? Do you need to cancel any subscriptions? Who are your emergency contacts? Moreover, you may have paperwork and other items pertinent to your finances that need to stay in a safe place. Do they belong in a self-storage unit, though? Indoor storage units are climate-controlled to help keep belongings safe and fresh for when they are retrieved. Important records for insurance and taxes may be kept if your unit is secure, though if you are uncertain you may wish to consult with your attorney or adviser to determine the best course of action.
Who Watches Your Stuff?
Once you’ve loaded up your storage unit, your next big decision involves its well being. The key should stay in town in the event somebody needs to access the unit and retrieve or store items. Choose a trustworthy person to hold onto your key until your return.
