Why Build a Garage When I Can Rent a Storage Unit?

Your home is packed to the rafters with a lifetime of accumulated stuff. All of it has sentimental value and it would break your heart to part with a single item.

Behind your house is the shed that holds your lawn mower, weed trimmer, hedge clippers, piles of flower pots, old trellises, garden hoses, and the rest of your outdoor gear.

You need some more space for your stuff.

Your first thought will be to rent a storage unit to keep your treasures in. But that would mean packing it all up and moving it across town. Anytime you needed something, you would have to stop everything, drive over to pick it up, drive home, use it, and then drive it back to put back into storage.

There has to be a better way.

The solution is simple:

The answer is to build a garage at your home.

Aside from giving you a place out of the weather to park your car, a garage is a fantastic investment for your home.

Instead of paying the $130-$200 per month for a large storage unit in Salt Lake City, you will be using the money to increase the value of your property and making it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell it in the future.

Your personal belongings will be close at hand when it is time to dig out those holiday decorations. You can get into your garage at any time of day or night, where the self-storage unit will likely only be open at certain times of day.

The garage can be planned out before you build it to ensure that you have plenty of room for everything. With the storage unit option, you might not have room in just one unit and wind up forced to rent more storage, adding to your monthly bills.

Probably the most important reason for a garage is the sense of security for your belongings.

When you place your things in storage, if there is a break-in it can take hours or even days, depending on the size of the facility, for it to be discovered. In a garage, the criminals are less likely to attempt the theft in the first place and, if they do, you will discover it right away and call the authorities. The sooner that the police are notified of a crime, the more likely it is that you will get your things back.

Keep your important belongings at home and invest in your home for the future. Or add another monthly bill to the pile that you already have and only visit your things when you are allowed. The choice is clear. Call Bonfire Building today and get a free on-site estimate for your very own garage.
