What Can You Use a Storage Unit For?

An Art studio? A personal gym? A Music Space? storage unit use gets creative due to social distancing.

When you think of a self-storage unit, you probably picture boxes, furniture, art pieces, old photos, keepsakes, or workout equipment. You know, stuff that’s not often used.

But we’re seeing more and more nontraditional uses of storage units due to COVID. Because of social distancing, so many Wichita storage units at our 7 locations are becoming many of our customers’ “home away from home,” a place to focus (or go when they’re out of room at home).

  1. I want to make sure that I get the right storage unit for me. It makes sense that I would want to get one that’s properly climate controlled. That seems like a good way to ensure that I take care of everything correctly.

  2. It’s interesting to know that a residential storage unit can be turned into an art studio for artists to have a quite place to do their work. I can imagine my sister being excited in this idea, since she would need this from time to time to unwind. She doesn’t have an extra room in their house, and it can be noisy there because of their children that is why I might suggest this to her.

  3. I like that you pointed out that storage units that are climate-controlled can keep our vehicle in good condition even when the weather changes. I can consider that if I have extra money now that I bought a new car for myself. It will give me peace of mind that it will last in good condition for a long time if I park it there.

  4. I like that you talked about using self-storage units for musicians to play and store their instruments safely, especially when they are climate-controlled. I will suggest this to my brother, so we can share one unit together since we love to play the grand piano and the violin together. We can even invite friends of ours to come with us and join the jamming session with us.
