Many Americans are downsizing right now. We are moving away from buying giant houses and seeking something a little more intimate and simple. But this raises a common conundrum: what are you supposed to do with that one-of-a-kind 1970s kitchen table you got from your parents, or that glorious original art print of the dessert that won’t quite fit in your new apartment?
Of course, many choose to go through their belongings and pare down. It feels good to lighten the load and to purge belongings you don’t need or want anymore. Bringing unwanted items to second hand stores or selling them, ensures that we lengthen the life of an item, and makes it possible for someone else to enjoy what we no longer need.
But what about those items that have sentimental value that you can’t seem to give away or throw out? What about those items that you actually do still need – but don’t have room for in your apartment?
Whether you’re looking to store a motorcycle over winter or your mother’s heirloom furniture for a future home, your search for affordable, safe storage in Columbus is over.
Storage Units on E. 5th Ave in Columbus’ Italian Village
Our storage units are located in Italian Village, just steps from our 4th Crossing and other N 4th rentals. (Located right next to Flower Child Vintage, you might even be tempted to shop for some vintage home décor while you’re at it!) It’s also a very short drive away from our Short North Apartments, so whatever you need in your storage unit is never too far away.
And at a monthly rate of only $75 per month, you can sleep easier knowing that your belongings are in a secure location that you can access any time.
Storage for Business Owners in Columbus Ohio
Our storage units are also the perfect solution for business owners in Columbus, Ohio who need a place to store their inventory. Whether you sell your own craft goods on the internet, own a retail shop here in town, or deal antiques, renting a storage unit can be a great way to keep track of inventory without your business taking up your entire house. With our low-key location in Italian Village and secure building, it’s a great place to store your inventory, whether you peddle homemade candles, vintage clothing, or simply need a place to store your tools of the trade.
Storage Unit Sizes for (Almost) Every Need
When considering storage units, you want to ensure you end up with a unit that’s the right size. Our storage units on E. 5th Avenue in Columbus come in two sizes: 5 x 10 square feet, and 10 x 15 feet.
A 5 x 10-foot storage unit is roughly the size of a large walk-in closet, and is perfect for storing furniture, small business inventory, a mattress, or those old family heirlooms. A 10 x 15-foot storage unit is about the size of a small bedroom or garage. This space is big enough to hold a couple mattresses, dismantled bedroom sets, multiple boxes, bookcases, a table and chairs, and can even be used for your hobbies (that is, if you don’t want your hobby taking up your entire apartment!)
