If you are a sailboat owner, no doubt you have considered what could happen to your prized water vehicle in the event of theft, vandalism, or unpredictable fierce storms. Your insurance might even cover such things, but what if that happens during peak sailboat season, and you end up waiting out the whole season, or longer, due to waiting for the insurance company to handle it.
If you are anything like many other nostalgic Texans, you have a lot of things that don’t have a home. You have your collections of things your children made in school for you from which you can’t possibly part. Maybe some wedding memorabilia, and stacks upon stacks of photos.
At some point, you may find that because of financial issues or another crisis, you need to move back in with either your parents or other family members. No matter what the reason is, this can still be an especially difficult and complicated relocation experience.
If you need to store items, you are in luck. Self storage is a great way to deal with too many items in your home or store things for awhile for any reason. The reasons a person need storage are many. Some people are doing it due to downsizing, some are remodeling their home, some store things for their parents who go into a nursing home, and people even do it while staging their homes for sale.
If you have belongings that just won’t fit in your closet, attic or garage, storage is your next best option. Now you need to decide what kind of Austin self-storage facility works best for your situation.
Imagine this: you’re in the middle of the moving process and have nowhere to keep your belongings. Or you are moving into a house with less space than you had before. What do you do?
When you are completing a remodeling project in your Austin home, you might find that using some self storage to tuck away some of your items during such a project will make it easier. You might be doing the project by yourself or hiring someone to do it.
Moving companies may make you pay extra for handling/relocating heavy or bulky items like pianos, pool tables, washing machines and so on. Also be aware that if movers have to carry these objects up staircases, you may incur a second surcharge as well.
It doesn’t matter if you have a big family or are single: when it comes time to relocate, you will need to downsize before the big day comes. Garage sales can be just your ticket to the leaner, meaner move that will save you time and money.
The recession has forced many homeowners into foreclosure. Bank repossessed properties now flood the market, creating opportunities to buy real estate at historically low prices. But buyers beware: the distressed market also means that property sales can go awry.
