Rent out your spare room by decluttering into Edinburgh Self Store

Self-storage is used for so many reasons. Many customers enquire with our team at Edinburgh Self Store for self-storage to best protect items during renovation, building work, and when traveling for a long period of time.  In recent weeks and months though, we have noticed a growing trend that more and more homeowners are using our self-storage units for a different reason.  This reason is using self-storage to rent out a spare room or space in the3ir residential property.  With energy bills and living costs on the rise, homeowners and families are looking for ways to bring in additional income, and renting out a spare room is one of the quickest ways to do exactly that.

If you are considering renting out a room in your house to a guest, using our self-storage units is essential to ensure that the guest has the room they need to live and make themselves a home. The first step in making your room eligible for a new guest is to start removing the clutter within the specific room you’re renting out.  It’s advisable to start by firstly clearing out the things you don’t want and taking these particular items down to the nearest recycling center or local charity shop.  Secondly, you may have larger items that you want to keep but you’re struggling to find room for them. Here, self-storage is a fantastic solution.
