Unusual Reasons to Rent A Mini Storage Unit

Mostly, people rent a mini storage unit for a handful of the same old reasons: to store holiday/extraneous house stuff, to store things they don’t want to part with but don’t need at their home, and to store clothes and supplies between semesters. There really isn’t much variation on this most of the time. Although; occasionally, someone needs to store a car or an ATV, and we can handle that easily here at Starkville Mini Storage, too. We’ve worked to provide storage facilities that are climate-controlled, roomy, and easy to use in terms of maximizing space.

There are some people who use their storage units for all sorts of other reasons, however; it’s pretty interesting to see what some folks do. Here’s a brief compilation of how storage units are being used by those who rent them in places outside of Starkville:

  • Some use their mini storage units to store their pianos. (They sometimes will also pull them out of storage and play them for passersby on occasion.) Many people use mini storage units to store large, bulky musical instruments that have no place taking up space in a home.

  • One renter set up a miniature library in her storage unit. If you think about it, a storage unit can be the perfect place to unwind with a favorite book and enjoy some time amongst your very own stacks. This renter certainly put her unit to good use.

  • More than one renter has set up their studio there to work. Loud roommates or city noise can be disruptive for anyone trying to get into an artist’s frame of mind. A mini storage unit is set back away from all the noise, and can very easily be set up as a studio for various types of artists or performers.

  • A second closet. Some people really do have it all, and when one nationally recognized drag queen ran out of space in her apartment, she didn’t let that stop her: she just started renting more space elsewhere. Apparently, it’s a really good way to change quickly between gigs, as that’s what she mostly uses it for.

  • Shopping storage. One woman rented a mini storage unit to hide away all of her excess purchases from her husband. I won’t tell if you won’t.

  • Space for party outfits...for any kind of party! Mini storage units provide ample room for costumes of every shape, size, color, genre, you name it. If you can dream it up, there’s a chance it’ll end up in a mini storage unit one day.

As you can see, plenty of options exist outside of the usual holiday stuff/extra stuff storage space. Having a mini storage unit gives you myriad opportunities to explore...your inner cellist, perhaps, or geisha? Mermaid? Or maybe you’d like to just have some quiet time and privacy to yourself, away from the hustle and bustle, to relax and read for awhile. Maybe you’ve come up with something that nobody else has ever considered.
