What Can Temporary Storage Be Used For?

Posted on: December 10, 2016

Too much stuff is a surprisingly common issue for most homeowners. It seems like any time you gear up for a project, start planning an event, or even just take a look around, you’re bombarded with the stress of too many things in your way. It can make it near impossible to get anything done! But that’s where temporary storage solutions provided by SMARTBOX comes in. SMARTBOX has been supplying the DMV area with top-class portable storage systems and storage solutions for years now. Our temporary storage options can make your life a whole lot easier, helping you de-clutter your home or office with ease!

What Is Temporary Storage?

Pretty much what the name suggests. Temporary storage is a service used any time you need items stored for a shorter period of time, say, for the holidays, or for the duration of a home project. With temporary storage your belongings can remain on-site and secure in our portable storage containers, or can be taken to our temperature-controlled storage facilities for safe keeping while you get things done.

When Do I Need Temporary Storage?

For the most part, you’d need temporary storage just any time there’s too much in your way. But there are some specific situations that come to mind that our portable storage solutions would be absolutely perfect for:

  • Home remodeling and renovation. When you’re planning for a remodel, say, a new kitchen, you need somewhere to keep your belongings that is out of the way. But at the same time, you need to know that your belongings are as safe and secure as can be. That’s where temporary storage shines!
  • Short-term trips. Leaving town, but don’t want to leave important belongings out in the open in your home? Everything from documents, sensitive equipment, valuables, and much more will be safe, secure, and well cared for in our storage facilities.
  • Storage for events. Large parties, weddings, business events–these are all good times to be had. But the logistics can be a nightmare, and figuring out how to move or store your set up materials can be a nightmare. Unless you have an ideal storage solution, that is…
  • Home presentation. Gussying up the home to present to potential buyers? Our storage systems are the perfect way to keep your clutter or excess belongings safe and secure while you prep your home for the market.
  • Secure document storage. Need somewhere to store important papers, data, microfilms, or other sensitive items? They’ll be kept in perfect condition short-term in our temperature-controlled facilities.
