Self Storage

February 4th, 2022

Are you trying to justify renting a storage unit to your boss, family member, partner, friend, or even to yourself? When you look at how affordable self-storage can be, or how helpful the amenities are here at Modern Storage®, it simply makes sense.
But if you need a little bit more understanding of what a storage unit can do for you, we can explain how most Modern Storage® customers come to needing one. These are the top six reasons why most people end up going Modern!


Moving and storing go hand in hand. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a storage unit comes in handy most often when people are moving.

You could be downsizing, remodeling, or relocating. Maybe you’re even a college student moving home for the summer or a any kind of move can require you to get a little extra storage space. We even offer a free moving truck to make the process as painless as possible!
If you don’t want to hire movers, you can do it yourself easily by following our tips on ways to make the most of the truck and pack it efficiently. You can also stop by any Modern Storage® facility and stock up on moving supplies!


The second biggest use for a storage unit is decluttering. When your garage, attic, shed, or closet doesn’t cut it anymore, you need to kick out the clutter and free up some space in your home.
Lots of our customers tend to start the decluttering process during springtime as part of their “spring cleaning” projects. You might be shocked to discover how relieved you will feel after locking all your extra stuff up in a storage unit.
But you could also be a business owner or office manager that wants a cleaner, more organized workspace. A clutter-free work environment could lead to happier, more efficient employees!
That leads us to our next point…


If your office is overflowing with inventory, renting a storage unit would be an excellent use of your time and money. Does your boss or business partner need some convincing?

Let’s just say you can rent one, two, or even 10 storage units without having to invest in warehousing and distributing or stuffing your office closets and shelves full of product.
Local entrepreneurs, small business owners, and start-ups all love storing with us because of our amazing business amenities. You can even sign up for 24-hour access to your storage unit and keep your business running smoothly day and night.


Another great use for a storage unit is safekeeping all your seasonal stuff. You can rent a storage unit year-round but swap out your belongings as you need them!
In the summer, you don’t want your Thanksgiving cornucopias or Christmas trees taking up precious space where your star-spangled banners and pool noodles should be. Just like in the winter, you don’t want your fishing poles and kayaks blocking access to your snow skis and coat collection.
A storage unit is also a great place to hide surprise gifts and presents from your loved ones before the next big holiday.


Do you have a boat, RV, trailer, food truck, classic car, or ATV?
If you’re out of garage space, you can use a storage unit to house your favorite vehicle until you gas up for your next trip. It will clear up some space in your driveway and keep your vehicle secure from passers-by.
Between the various Modern Storage® locations across Arkansas, you can find a parking space or an enclosed storage unit that will fit your needs perfectly.


When disaster strikes, sometimes a last-minute storage unit reservation can really save the day. If you lose your home or a loved one, you need a place for all those lost belongings to go and we are happy to get you into a unit ASAP to relieve some stress.
At Modern Storage®, we make renting a storage unit quick, easy, and even contactless. You can stop by a Modern Storage® location near you, give us a call, or select your unit you want right here on our website.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
