Over time – we all accumulate a lot of items.  It could be purchases, gifts, investments or even inherited items.  Some of which are bound to be high value.  And the big questions are – what do you do with them? It could be that they hold sentimental value to you therefore you don’t want to sell them or pass them on – or that you want to keep them to see a return on investment depending on your individual situation.  Here we list some reasons as to why you may want to consider these items outside your home.

You Are Renting Out Your Property

It could be that you own the property, but don’t live there 100% of the time.  Or it could be that you rent certain parts of your home out to external parties.  As such, having precious items might not be the best idea.  If it’s a buy to let property, you should take out as much personal property as possible, or if you are maybe renting out on Airbnb for example on occasion – you want to make sure your items are not readily on display to people you don’t know.

For Space Purposes

Let’s face it – we aren’t all blessed with double garages, lofts, or spare rooms in our home where we can put our precious items.  As such, it could be that there isn’t enough room for all of our belongings without making our homes look cluttered or taking up valuable space we need to run our everyday lives.  As these precious items may not be the ones you need as part of your everyday use – it may be a good idea to store them elsewhere.  That way, you can still own them – but not worry about where to keep them and finding space for them.

To Ensure They Don’t Get Damaged

If you have kids or animals running around your home, this could definitely cause you problems if you have valuables around your home with no designated safe space.  You are at risk of them being damaged, either costing you lots of money in repairs – or unsalvageable damages depending on what the belongings are.  To keep them safe from harm from the occurrences of everyday life, it could be best to ensure they aren’t stored within the home and at a storage unit instead.

For Their Safety And Security

Storage units are no doubt much more safe and secure than the average home unless you have a top of the range security system in place.  As such, if they aren’t items that you would use or need access to on a regular basis – so make sure they are protected and secure.  Storage units tend to have 24/7 CCTV footage, alarm systems as well as people manning the building/reception.  You can be safe in the knowledge your items will be secure.

You Are In The Process Of Moving Home

It could be that you are in the process of moving home and haven’t yet found the forever place for your precious items in your new abode yet.  If you need some time and space in the interim period, sending the items to storage could be the perfect temporary option where they will be safe.  That will give you some time to figure out what you are going to do with those particular items. 

If you do have some previous items, hopefully our article has given you some food for thought in terms of how to store them.
