Your children have all moved out, but you’re not ready to part with your family home yet? We can totally understand. Instead of leaving their rooms unused, more and more people choose to turn their spare rooms into a B&B.

Why self-storage can be handy if you want to rent out your room

  • Create space: move stuff that you don’t need on a day-to-day basis into storage to so you can turn your spare room into a desirable AirBNB room.
  • Make your guests feel at home: let the guests feel like they are in their own space by keeping personal belongings in storage.
  • Privacy and freedom: keeping your personal belongings in storage will give you the freedom to pursuit this new venture.
