Check Your Vancouver Storage Unit and Make Someone’s Day


It’s easy to forget what you have, especially when you transport items that you don’t use every day to a Downtown Vancouver storage facility. Remember just because you don’t see it in front of you, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Many of the objects that people place in storage end up becoming unwanted ‘junk’ to them because it’s no longer of value and serves no purpose in their daily lives.

Articles that are stored for indefinite periods of time will probably never see the light of day and enter your living quarters again. So, why not consider giving these items to someone else that could benefit? February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day, which gives you the opportunity to indirectly provide a helping hand to individuals in need. Think about donating articles that you no longer find handy. You’ll simultaneously do you and another person a huge favor.

One Person’s Trash is Another Person’s Treasure

Vancouver storage units are great luck makers for residents. Now’s the time to take advantage of de-cluttering your life and getting organized by giving away items from your personal storage space to someone less fortunate. Many unit renters donate the following objects all the time:

  • Books, magazines, and other media outlets
  • Dishes
  • Furniture
  • Bed linen
  • Musical instruments
  • Vehicles
  • Electronics and appliances
  • Toys and games

  • It helps you get organized and utilize more space.
  • You’re playing a part in brightening someone else’s future.
  • You’re making room for other items that are still valuable to you.

How to Donate

There’s a number of organizations that can help you get rid of unwanted build-up in your storage unit. All you need to do is have access to the right resources. Local Goodwill locations, used bookstores, and secondhand furniture shops are some options that could suit your needs. Whatever the case, don’t wait any longer to make more space in your unit while bringing a smile to another person’s face.
