The Storage Inn offers extra space for when you’re downsizing your living space!

Downsizing and Self Storage

There are plenty of reasons why people decide it’s time to downsize their lives and move into a smaller living space including wanting less house to manage, retiring to a active adult community, health concerns, or the need for assisted living. Whatever the reason, downsizing can be a daunting task, but the The Storage Inn Self-Storage in Egg Harbor Township, and Ocean City, NJ can be a huge benefit for you in making that transition easier especially if you’re one of the following:

Empty Nesters
The kids have moved out! You can finally turn their bedroom into that office you always wanted, the dream craft room, or a guest bedroom. The possibilities are endless! So, what are you to do with all that extra stuff taking up extra space they left behind – bed, desk, dresser, etc.?
The Storage Inn can solve your extra space issues – with over 45 storage space sizes to choose from, it’s the perfect solution! It can also ease the transition for you and your adult kids when they move out. Place their items into a storage unit and give them access to it. This gets their stuff out of the way at home, but still makes it easy for them to access everything when needed. 

Congratulations on your retirement! We all dream of that day when we can sleep in with no alarm and do all those things we’ve dreamt of for years, like traveling the world, or finding new hobbies.

If retirement means moving to a smaller home perhaps in a 55 and over community, the good news is no more shoveling snow or cutting the grass!  The challenge is that you now have less than half of the storage space that you had in your old home!

Where are you going to put the 30 years of stuff you’ve accumulated but can’t bear to get rid of yet?
This is where a self storage space can come to the rescue! The staff at The Storage Inn is always happy to offer tips to help you sort and save the items that may have sentimental value to your family as well as the ones that you made need easy access to throughout the year.

Assisted Living
Transitioning into an assisted living facility, or helping a loved one through this process, is a challenging endeavor. How do you deal with a lifetime of personal belongings that very likely will not fit into your new senior living community? Often, time is of the essence, and the need for storing these items must be met quickly! This is where self-storage comes to the rescue! Many times, the best solution is to rent a large to mid-sized storage space until items can be sorted and consolidated into a smaller storage unit for long term storage.

How to Store Your Memories with Climate Controlled Storage

Store Your Memories with Climate Controlled Storage

Memory Lane


Well it’s official, I’m getting old. As I approach 60, I often find myself thinking back to the days of my youth and reminiscing. The other day I decided to take a stroll down memory lane by climbing up into the attic, and taking a look through some of my stored childhood memories  – Old record albums, boxes of baseball cards, my trumpet – I even found an old autograph book.  Ah, The memories that came rushing back – but I noticed something about all of these items.  They were all in worse condition now, than they were back when I put them into the attic. Some of the records appeared to be warped, the pages of the books were discolored and rippled,  and my baseball glove was covered with some sort of a white film. “Too late now “ I thought, but what could I have done differently? So I did some investigating, and here is what I came up with.

Climate Change
So, while I could have done a better job of packaging these items prior to storing, the real problem is the extreme change in temperature and humidity levels throughout the year that occur in a typical attic area. The simple solution to this problem would be to keep all of your delicate, sentimental, and collectible items in a climate controlled area.  It was at this point that I encountered the one small glitch in this plan. The only climate controlled storage area in my home is the living area, and that happens to be completely full of silly things like clothes, food, and furniture. I did however, find one viable solution….

Climate controlled storage
What if I told you that there are actually places that will rent you a small, affordable, climate controlled space, that would be perfect for storing your books, record albums, baseball card collection,  musical instruments, and any other items that might be affected by extreme heat, cold or humidity? Yep, you guessed it – your local self-storage facility! They will undoubtedly offer climate controlled storage units where the temperature and humidity are kept at a median range throughout the year, as a means to protect just these types of items. Definitely worth checking out!

Well it may be too late for me and my autograph book, but hopefully these tips will prevent you from going up into your attic and finding a rusty trumpet!
