Decluttering Your Home Before an Open House Using Self Storage

You’re getting ready to stage your home for an open house. There’s only one problem. Your Realtor says you need to declutter…and fast. You start to panic. You don’t have any more room in the attic, garage, or basement and you are just about out of time. What do you do?

Self-Storage for Home Staging

While your house is on the market, consider renting a self-storage unit to safely store excess furniture, exercise equipment, holiday decorations, and any other items that could hurt your ability to get the best offer from potential homebuyers.

Flexible Storage Options

At LockTite Storage, we realize selling your home can take time. We offer low monthly rates on self-storage units and flexible month-to-month leasing options so you can rent a space for as little or as long as you like. If you will be storing longer than 3 months, especially during the hot Texas summer months consider a comfort cooled dehumidified unit. This will mimic the interior or your home and safeguard your furniture and electronics!

For added convenience, we also provide a free truck for moving in and out as well as dollies and carts to help make storing your items a breeze.

Determining the Best Storage Unit Size

If you’re considering a self-storage unit to declutter your home for an open house, the key to getting the most value for your money is to first determine how much room you’ll need and then find the best storage unit size.

For example, if you’re trying to store all of your life’s possessions you’re definitely going to need a larger storage unit. Narrower units (10×15, 10×20, 10×25) are nice but there’s a chance you’ll lose storage space when compared to wider units (15×10, 20×10) where you can more easily compartmentalize your belongings and more easily access your items by creating an aisle down the center or side of the unit.

Using Self-Storage to Declutter for an Open House

If you need to declutter your home for an upcoming open house, don’t stress. Self storage can be an inexpensive and convenient way to remove unnecessary items from your home and make sure you come away with the best offer. With fenced and gated properties, state of the art security, and storage options such as our comfort cooled dehumidified units you’ll also have peace of mind that your items will be kept safe.
