Downsize with the help of a mini storage.  How does that work? What does it look like? Why do it?

Traditionally, a person who is downsizing their home will sort out the essentials, take the extra and have a garage sale or give those extras away, and presto, downsizing is achieved . . . but . . . far too often there are items a person or family simply cannot give away, usually very personal items which they have some emotional attachment with, and those personal items provide a roadblock to real downsizing.

What to do?

The solution is right in front of you.  It’s a solution you have passed by, on the road, thousands of times while out running errands. That solution can only be a mini storage unit.

We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-439-1380 for information about a storage unit in the Fort Worth Metro area.

Can you afford a mini storage unit?

For someone who is downsizing, which generally means moving into a smaller home after all of the extras are gotten rid of, the answer of a storage unit is a resounding YES!  The smallest storage unit at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage is a 5’x5’ storage space. That is twenty-five square feet plus eight feet vertically.  You can storage a great many emotional items in that space, and it only costs $45 per month.

Is $45 per month too much to pay for items you have an emotional attachment with?

Of look at it financially.  If you downsize, and move from a larger domicile to a smaller one, you most likely will have cut costs in doing so. Part of the money saved by downsizing can be spent towards the $45 per month storage space.  It really is the perfect scenario: you downsize AND you hold onto the items which means so much to you.

Will your emotional items be protected from theft and from the climate?

Storage facilities like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage can almost 100% guarantee that your possessions/collectibles will be safe from both theft/vandalism and the climate.  Perimeter fencing, personalized computer access keys, video security monitoring, and on-site management means that secure self storage is assured.  And climate controlled storage, for a few dollars more per month, means no matter what Mother Nature throws at us in terms of temperature, your items will be unaffected by the damages causes by oxidation.

Is a mini storage a practical solution for someone downsizing?

Unfortunately, we cannot answer this question for you. Only you can do that. We think self storage is a viable solution for many people, but not for all.  Such is the nature of life.  One size does not fit all, and that’s just reality.  We can say that the overwhelming number of customers we have had over the years will swear by self storage. All we can say is it is worth considering for those serious about downsizing and yet emotionally attached to certain items.
