Arranging Your Self Storage UnitWhen situations arise that require two households to merge into one, there may be a temporary need to store many items for later use. Rent a self storage unit until everyone takes a breath and figures out what to do.

Middleburg Public Storage: There are many reasons why families choose to combine their households these days and self storage units can be a great help when that happens. Since remarriage occurs with frequency, there is often a matter of combining two households into one. Where there are children from both marriages, it will be even more of a challenge. Where one family already resides, there is unlikely to be enough extra room to accommodate a whole second family. Merging lives will require that a good deal of reorganizing will be necessary.

Another scenario, though more temporary in most cases, is where one family loses a home to foreclosure and must move in with friends or relatives until they can get back on their feet. Having a 3 or 4-bedroom home and the possessions of a family that lived there to go with it presents a problem. Moving in with another family for awhile works great in some cases, but there will be nowhere to keep the items that will be needed when the family moves out again to go on with their life in a new home or living situation. Renting a temporary self storage unit in which to keep the household until they move on is a great idea.

Then there’s the situation where parents grow older and pass away, leaving all of their things behind for their surviving children to sort out. In many cases, those things are numerous, as very few people clear out their homes anticipating that they will not be alive much longer. In that case, there is great emotion attached to the clearing out of items.

Some families are fortunate enough to hire help for that chore. Where that’s not possible, or where the children are sentimental about their parents’ things, it might be a very good idea to rent a temporary storage unit in which to place the items. The actual sorting and distribution to siblings and other survivors can then be done without haste. This would also be helpful where the estate has distribution of items that must be shipped to those living in distant places or to hold them for those who would prefer to come and pick them up. Time can be healing in this case, and placing the things in self storage temporarily will allow the surviving family members to take their time deciding what is important to keep and what can be donated or sold.
