A storage locker is more than just a place to store overflow personal items. For some people, it's a way to enjoy a business or hobby that otherwise they couldn't because of a lack of space. The next time you drive past a local self-storage facility, consider that there might be more going on there than you know. Here are some of the ways people are using their extra space.
For people with more stuff than space, self-storage units provide an invaluable service. If you don't have an attic or basement (or you don't want to pack them full of stuff), you're no longer relegated to holding a yard sale to get your extra objects out of your house.
But if something is worth holding onto, it's also worth protecting; just like your home could be burglarized or damaged by a flood or fire, so could your self-storage unit.
