If perhaps everything doesn’t fit like you thought it would be it the new desk you bought or the boss chair. You can always keep a storage unit at a reasonable price and stay until you are completely happy with your new space!

Either way, a self-storage unit provides a secure resting point for any valued personal items which can’t be relocated immediately.
4. A Safe Place for Equipment or Vehicles
Individuals or organizations who use equipment or hardware that operates on a seasonal basis (such as ski equipment, gardening tools or camping gear) typically won’t want this stuff cluttering up their home throughout the year. Let’s leave the garage for the cars…
Self-storage units allow such seasonal or surplus items to be safely stowed away during the periods when they aren’t required for active service.

And rental contracts may be negotiated for whatever length of time is most convenient for the duration of your trip. And you can rest easy on the beach knowing your belongings are safe.
