We are of the opinion that mini storage is better than storing your extra possessions in your garage.  Of course, you would expect us to say that since we are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the fine people of Fort Worth, but we stand by that statement. We really do believe a mini storage unit is infinitely better than storing valuables in a garage, and in this article, we are going to tell you why we have that belief.  Call us at 817-439-1380 for more information about self storage.

Mini storage is THE solution to clutter

It would be interesting to float a survey out there to the general public, asking homeowners and renters how many of them actually keep their auto in their garage.  We would be willing to bet not even 50% of them do, and the reason for that is because our garages rapidly become our de facto storage unit for all things “without a home” that we own.

You know what we are talking about, don’t you? The lawn furniture has to go somewhere, right? The kids’ outdoor toys have to be stored somewhere. The summer adult playthings need protection from winter weather.  The tools . . . the lawn furniture . . . the gardening supplies . . .

People collect stuff! That’s what we do.  And that stuff needs a place. And that place is, all too often, the garage.  Which means, of course, that your car sits outside during the winter, during the harsh sun of summer, unprotected, depreciating in value, while your “stuff” sits nice and dry in the garage.

Does that seem silly to you? It does to us, especially since the smallest storage unit available only costs around $45 per month.  Is $45 per month a good price to pay to reclaim the auto storage commonly called your garage?

Mini storage is THE combative against Mother Nature

Mother Nature means hot and cold temperatures. Fluctuating temperatures mean oxidation, and it also means contracting and expanding materials in the heat and cold. There is no way to avoid all of these harmful things unless you have a heated garage.

Climate controlled storage, like you find in storage facilities like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, is the only way to combat Mother Nature so your valuables remain undamaged.

Your garage isn’t even close to being secure

Do you know how long it takes a professional thief to break into a garage, even one locked?

Two minutes, tops!  And within five minutes, most of the valuables in your garage can be removed, put into a van, and driven away, never to be seen again.

Your garage is not secure, but there is secure self storage available at your local storage facilities.

Mini storage delivers peace of mind

For $45 per month, you can have your garage back and your mind at ease.  It really is very little to pay for peace of mind, don’t you think?
