Financial Benefits of Using Storage


June 14th, 2017

There are many reasons people use storage units, but did you ever consider that it could actually save you money?

Residential/Consumer Users:

You can rent a smaller house or apartment if you rent a storage unit to store your extra items, instead of using your extra bedroom for storage. After looking through the rental listings in Billings it seems that a rough average for 2 bed room houses for rent is about $800, and a 3 bedroom house is $1000. At The Storage Place, you can rent a 10ft x 10ft storage unit (approximate size of a small bedroom) for around $70 month. So if you really only need 2 bedrooms but were renting a 3 bedroom house to store your extra items, you could be saving $130 each month by using a more economical storage unit (That's a savings of over $1500 per year!). The storage unit at The Storage Place is on a month-to-month lease so if you move, or expand your family etc you are not locked into a year lease like most houses/apartments require. The Storage Place offers multiple unit sizes to best fit your individual needs. For example, you may be able to fit all of your extra belongings into one of our 5ft x 10ft units with 11ft ceilings which would save you even more each month.

Business Users can benefit too.

Any business that needs to store records or documents (Lawyers, Dr's. Dentists, Accountants etc) can save money by renting a smaller office and utilizing a storage unit. Retail businesses (clothing stores, furniture/mattress businesses, really any business that has to carry extra inventory) can rent a smaller store and store their back-up inventory at one of our 3 easy to access, secure storage facilities.

Service businesses (plumbers, electricians, repairmen etc) may also find a storage unit a convenient option for storing parts and tools. We offer any verified businesses the option of having 24 hour a day, 365 day a year access to their units. Once again with month-to-month leases you can always change your storage unit size or decide whether you need a unit seasonally rather than year round at any point.

As always, Happy Storing!
