If you’re moving, your new home may not have enough room for all of your belongings. You can either have a yard sale to get rid of some of your belongings, throw some of your things away or you can put your items in a mini storage unit. But there’s also another option available to you: movablestorage buildings. If you’re moving to a house, you can have a movable storage building built and delivered to your property and store your belongings there. This will prove to be an especially viable option if you’ll be renting or don’t plan on staying in the house long enough to justify having a shed built permanently on the property.
One of the problems with using a mini storage unit for an extended period of time is that you run the risk of simply paying for a place to postpone your decision to either get rid of or sell whatever you have stored. While it may seem like a movable storage building is more expensive than mini storage unit, it can actually be quite affordable since you can do financing to purchase a movable storage building rather than purchasing a rent to own one. People who purchase a shed through the rent to own option end up paying much more than those who purchase a shed through financing.
A movable storage building doesn’t require a contract for a certain amount of time the way a mini storage might. For a mini storage, you might have to sign a contract for six months or one year, something you might be hesitant about if you’re not sure how long you will need it. With purchasing a shed through financing you can obtain a storage shed that will be yours once it is completely paid for. Not so after paying rent for 3 years on a storage unit.
Mini storage isn’t your only option or even your best option if you need a place to store your things. Look into a purchasing a movable building and save some money while still giving yourself a safe place to store your belongings. Another reason it is a smarter move is because you can have all your belonging close by.
