Storing Your Stuff During A Home Remodel

If you’re looking to flip a house, buy a fixer-upper, or remodel certain rooms in your home, you’ll need to consider where you can safely store your stuff during the process. When it comes to storing your belongings during a remodel or renovation, you’ll want to think about convenience, security, and budget. If you’ve already made it this far in your research, you’re likely well aware of the benefits of remodeling or purchasing a fixer-upper, but this article will cover some of the benefits of leveraging mobile self-storage containers with a company like Badger Box to help save both time and money during your project. Let’s get started!

Benefits of Remodeling Your Home

Most people consider remodeling or renovating certain aspects of their homes for reasons such as increasing the value, updating something outdated, addressing a safety issue or making a space more efficient. Whatever your reason for remodeling a room or part of your house, it will most definitely reap benefits you may not have already thought about.

Remodeling Can Increase the Value of Your House

The most common reason people choose to remodel is to increase the value of their home so that they can sell it down the road. Of course, you don’t have to wait until you’re ready to put your house on the market to start reaping these benefits. If you update a room or two while you live there, you’ll be able to enjoy the results of your hard work and then some when it comes time to sell.

For example, imagine you purchased your house 20 years ago and have a closed-concept kitchen, dining, and living space. Nowadays, it only takes a few hours of watching HGTV to know that open concept, vast counter space, and cabinets, as well as modern appliances and fixtures, can increase the value of your home. If you were on the market for a new house, wouldn’t you want a modern, updated floor plan to go along with it?

You Can Enjoy Your Home More

Not only will you increase the value of your home by updating it, but you’ll also get to enjoy living in a space that is new and improved. If you’ve been wanting to knock down a wall to create an open concept or add on a sunroom for years, why not do it now? Not only will you be able to live in and enjoy your newly updated home, but if and when you do decide to sell, potential buyers will see that the house has already been well-maintained.

It Makes Your Living Space More Efficient

There’s nothing worse than an outdated floor plan, bathroom, or kitchen that isn’t maximizing space, or old appliances that are expending more energy than they should be. Depending on what you’re remodeling, having the chance to update the layout of a room will most definitely allow you to maximize how you’re using the space. This could mean that there is more room, it’s brighter, and it has more storage than it did before. It could mean that you’re updating plumbing, electrical, or appliances that are far more efficient. Renovating your home will inevitably improve your quality of life by making your space or appliance much more efficient!

Working On Your Fixer-Upper or Remodel While Living In It

Of course, one of the benefits of remodeling your home is that you don’t have to leave it while the work is being done. You can live in your house and work on different aspects as time and money allow. With this convenience comes a little extra planning. Depending on what area of your home you plan to remodel, you’ll need to think about how you can continue with your day-to-day unencumbered. Some of the challenges that come into play when you’re living in the house you’re renovating include:

  • Limited space for tools and materials
  • Limited space for personal belongings that have been moved out of a room
  • Inability to use a primary restroom
  • Inability to use kitchen appliances
  • House begins to feel more like a work zone than a home

No matter the length of time you plan to spend on your remodel project, you’ll need to think about how you can navigate some of these above issues so that they aren’t affecting your home life. Especially in the case where you have children who love to get their hands on things they aren’t supposed to, it can be even more important to plan for your home remodel or renovation. One of the absolute best ways to make your home remodel go as smoothly as possible is to leverage a mobile self-storage container through a company like Badger Box Storage.

Using A Mobile Self-Storage Container During Your Home Remodel

A storage container from Badger Box Storage is the solution you’ve been looking for during your home remodel project! Unlike traditional storage unit facilities that require you to travel to a brick-and-mortar location, as well as rent a truck for transportation, mobile self-storage containers can be delivered right to your driveway.

The storage containers from Badger Box Storage are weatherproof and secure, so you don’t have to worry about your belongings being damaged by the elements or stolen while you’re working on renovating your house. A storage container can provide you with the much-needed extra storage space for all of your tools, materials, and personal belongings that have been moved out of a room during construction.

Store Materials and Tools in a Mobile Storage Container During a Remodel

One of the more challenging elements during a home remodel or renovation is finding a safe place to store all of your materials and tools. There’s no quicker way to make your home feel like a construction zone than to have tarps hanging on walls, sawdust coating the furniture, and a table saw by the couch. If you’re a family with kids or pets, it could be a matter of safety to keep your home clear of hazardous tools and materials during the project. So where should you store these items during such a project?

Leveraging mobile self-storage containers is a convenient and affordable method for storing home renovation tools and materials during your project. To start, you’ll still have access to everything you need onsite, but it will be locked securely when the project isn’t being worked on. Additionally, you can keep hazardous items out of reach from kids and pets.

Store Belongings in a Mobile Storage Container

No matter which part of your home you’re remodeling, you’ll inevitably have furniture, décor, and similar belongings that will need to go somewhere during the project. If you’re renovating a heavily used area of the house, it just doesn’t make sense to put another room in the house out of commission by turning it into a storage room. This is another reason why using a mobile storage container is an awesome idea for a home renovation. Rather than making another area of the home off limits, or relocating belongings to a storage facility miles away, a mobile storage unit remains on your property for easy access. This will allow you to still make use of your belongings whenever you need them during the renovation, but also will minimize taking up extra space.

Mobile Storage Helps You Maintain Daily Home Operations During Renovation

Many people delay home renovations simply because of the inconveniences that come along with such projects. Some believe they have to rent a camper van, the kids have to live with the grandparents, or half the house will become inaccessible for an extended period. All of these inconveniences can make the thought of a home remodel sound completely overwhelming. However, by leveraging an affordable mobile storage container like the ones provided by Badger Box Storage, your home remodel can be much simpler than you might have imagined.

A storage container can provide you with the storage space you need to keep your belongings safe and out of the way during construction. This will minimize the amount of disruption to your daily life, as well as help you avoid costly storage fees at a storage facility miles away from your home.

If you’re considering a home renovation, but dreading the thought of where you’ll store everything during construction, look no further than Badger Box Storage!

  • This was hands-down the easiest moving experience! With 3 small children we needed an option that would allow us to stow at our own pace and without countless trips to a storage unit... and Badger Box delivered. The box was clean, secure and was delivered to the new house without a single item shifting in transit. Steven and Chris were both incredible to work with --- bottom line - we highly recommend!

  • Chris, Stephen and crew were absolutely amazing to work with! Wonderful with communication. They made my moving a million times easier without having to worry about my belongings until I got in to my new spot! Would highly recommend over and over again.

  • These guys are amazing. This was the perfect solution for my move! Chris, Steven and all the folks at Badger Box Wilmington went above and beyond to meet my moving needs! I used four pods and moved from a large historic home. The boxes were clean and the guys made sure they were level. Watching them deliver or pick up a box is fascinating. I hope I never move again, but if I do, I know who I will be calling! Thank you guys, you are lifesavers in more ways than one! ♥️

  • There is a reason people rate this business so high- because they really do show off the best qualities of local small business! The customer service is more like dealing with a friend and the transportation of the box was flawless! They have this very cool robotic box mover that was able to get our box in the perfect spot- plus it's just cool to watch! The box itself was perfect for our needs during our home reno. We had it for 5 months and everything inside stayed perfect, not even a trace of musty smell! I would absolutely refer them over any of the "big brand" storage companies. Go Badger Box you won't regret it!! 🙂
