Downsizing When College Students Leave
Whether your first child is going to college or this is the last time you will be sending a child off, this time can be both exciting and a little terrifying for everyone. However, you can look forward to either downsizing your current space or repurposing your child’s old room and spaces.
If your child is leaving behind a room full of furniture and belongings, it can be hard to part with these. You may be tempted to leave everything just as it is but what if you are ready to move or you need that extra space? It is likely you don’t want to throw everything out, so what do you do with all this extra stuff you now have on hand? SMARTBOX may have the storage solutions for you.
Storage Solutions for Empty Nesters
The good news is you don’t have to just throw all of your child’s belongings away. Of course, you also don’t have to keep the room just as it is. There are storage solutions that can help you downsize or get some of your space back for a craft room, guest room, or exercise room. SMARTBOX has storage unit options that can help:
- On-site portable storage – Portable storage is dropped off at your home and sits by the side of your house for as long as you need. This storage type can be a great solution if you’re planning on downsizing. You can easily load items into the portable storage container then either have it stored at a secure location or have it moved to your next house!
- Off-site self-storage units – Off-site self-storage units are a more traditional option. Your belongings can be stored securely for as long as you need with low fees, security, and protection from the weather. If you have special collections or antiques that need to be stored, you can even have a climate-controlled storage unit.
No matter what type of storage solution you need, the team at SMARTBOX can help!
