3 Reasons Why Sharing a Self Storage Unit is a Great Solution to a Mutual Problem


Are you and a loved one both looking for a place to store holiday decorations between festivities? Know a friend just as desperate to free up some living space as you are? Sharing a self storage unit can be an affordable and mutually beneficial solution. Here are a few reasons why you should consider getting a storage unit roommate.

Pay Less. Store More.

The most obvious reason to consider sharing a storage unit is, of course, the cost. With two people paying for a single unit, you can double the space you would have alone. At CitiWide, you can reference our unit size chart to determine what area would work best for you and your storage buddy.

Make it Your Business

A storage space can act as a mini-warehouse for those of you who are co-owners of a small business. Investing in a larger storage unit can also provide a small workspace inside the unit. CitiWide Self Storage offers units with electrical outlets so you can practically run your entire business from the comfort of our Long Island City location.

A Friendly Convenience

Let’s face it, sometimes life is busy, and you just don’t have time to stop by the storage unit to pick up those 4th of July decorations. When you share a unit, you always have someone else who can do pick-ups, drop-offs, and vice versa.
