Over the last year, approximately 38 percent of all marriages in Canada ended in divorce. A more in-depth study conducted by the Canadian government concluded that the median duration of marriages at the time of divorce was around 11 years. That equates to 11 years’ worth of clothes, books, movies, knick-knacks, couches, tables, chairs, televisions, appliances, and more. So, what happens to all that stuff during a divorce? Renting a storage unit benefits you during a divorce.
Going through a divorce can be an incredibly challenging life event but managing and storing your possessions should not be. Renting a storage unit can be an excellent option for a person that is going through a divorce. Storage units can give them a place for their possessions in between. It can make an overwhelming situation infinitely more manageable. Here’s why:
Storage units during a divorce allow you to draw a clean line
Renting a storage space can help you draw a clear line between your possessions and your ex-spouse’s possessions. There will be some things that are indisputably yours and can be immediately moved to your storage unit.
If you are dividing any belongings, a personal storage unit can also provide a place to prevent confusion. It can give you a space that is neutral to gather all your items.
Storage unit rentals increase safety and sense of security
The end of a relationship will undoubtedly be difficult, in many ways. If you are worried that your possessions may be at risk of being stolen, vandalized, sold, or misplaced, then having a secured location is critical. A rental storage unit can provide that, and in turn, give you the peace of mind that your possessions are safe.
Let’s you start anew with a storage unit during divorce
Material possessions can be a reflection of past times and memories. If you are going through a divorce, it is likely that you are turning over a new leaf and entering a new chapter in your life. You want to be moving forward, not backward.
Keeping your possessions in a storage unit can help you look toward the future. It will help you visualize what you have, and how it can fit into your next space. It will prevent you from going back to the space that you and your spouse shared.
A rental storage unit can provide a fresh springboard for the next chapter of your life, instead of forcing you to keep returning to the last chapter.
