Are you a long-time user of a storage unit in Toronto? Have you found that your yearly fees continue to incrementally increase? Why not consider an alternative space that could provide immense cost savings in the long-run? Yes, the alternative space we’re talking about is your currently (but not for long!) wet basement.
The average cost of a 10×10 storage unit (just big enough to fit the contents for 1 bedroom) could range from $100 a month to $300. That translates to a cost of $1,200 to $3,600 that you are paying a year! And as the years pass by, you may notice the storage unit cost increasing while your possessions increase. Short of taking action to declutter and start giving away or selling your old furniture on Kijiji, you will find yourself saddled with this expense each year.
If you decide enough is enough, and you want to save on this expense (perhaps put it towards a vacation fund?), you should look into fixing up your basement as a storage space. Basements are widely underutilized and overlooked because of their potential wetness problems. Fortunately, this is an easy fix! There are many wet basement solutions and waterproofing options available to turn your basement dry again, and, best of all, keep it dry for the lifetime of your home ownership. Contact a reputable waterproofing expert with years of experience, such as The Crack Doctor, to learn more about the options available to you. The cost will surely pay off, especially when you see your monthly credit card bill without that pesky – not to mention hefty – storage unit monthly expense.
