Vancouver is a diverse city. With a population of over 150 thousand people, the city is unique in its mix of ethnic backgrounds and blend of different cultures. Despite the different types of people you find in Vancouver, when it comes to storage, most people have very similar needs. Our Vancouver storage units are filled with many different individuals belongings, but the items you generally find in a storage unit are fairly ubiquitous. If you are in need of a storage unit in Vancouver, be sure to consider these common items you can store with us in addition to any other type of personal belongings.
Furniture is a common thing many people keep in their storage unit, and there are a few reasons for this. The first reason is that many times, there are articles of furniture that simply don’t fit in a living space comfortably. Generally, people who find themselves in this position don’t want to donate their furniture to Goodwill, however, because they anticipate living in larger space later down the road. Another reason for this is that furniture is sometimes very costly or valuable. Leather couches or love seats and antique wood pieces are among these. Keeping these valuable items in a home exposes them to damage or even theft which simply doesn’t happen in a storage center. So whether it is for security or a lack of space, furniture always makes its way into our storage units.
A lot of Vancouver locals also keep their exercise equipment in a storage unit. Exercise equipment, like furniture, can take up a lot of space, which can be difficult when you downgrade your space or live in an apartment. The other reason exercise equipment, such as weights, home gyms, or treadmills, end up in storage is because of injury or illness. Vancouver residents who fall ill have a hard time working out like they used to, and that room can be converted into more livable space if the equipment is removed. Getting rid of exercise equipment is an expensive choice, and selling it gives you much less than you pay for it, so many people turn to our self-storage to get a better deal and save their exercise equipment for when they are able to use them more at a later time.
Vancouver families, though varied and different, all hold sentimentality toward special items. Our storage units are great for keeping cherished memories safe, from knick knacks to photos to antique jewelry. The reason many people keep these in storage units instead of at home is out of practicality and security. A lot of cherished memories, if not kept in storage unit, clutter up closets and basements, risking the integrity of these mementos. Our storage facility also offers top-notch practices in security with 24-hour video monitoring and a gated, keypad-access only premises. Storing your cherished memories keeps them cherished and protected.
