From bulky restoration tools to oversized musical equipment, our hobbies can take up a lot of precious space in our homes. Instead of letting equipment stress you out, consider renting a personal storage unit.

Hobbies That Are Better with a Storage Unit

Decluttering your home can bring a new sense of peace to your living space, but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your hobbies to freshen up your pad. These bulky activities might be better suited with off-site storage:


Whether you’re an Etsy shop owner or you dabble in crafting during your free time, craft supplies can take up a lot of space. Trying to manage all of your fabrics, stickers, paints, and clay can be overwhelming. By renting a storage unit, you can keep your home tidy by organizing your craft supplies in a separate space that could even become your new studio!

Seasonal Sports

There are a lot of hobbies that we love to partake in only during certain months of the year. Not many of us will be surfing in December or skiing in June, so why are we allowing these seasonal sports to clutter our homes for the entirety of the year? Store seasonal sports equipment like:
  • Sleds
  • Dive gear
  • Skis
  • Kayaks
  • Snowboards
  • Paddleboards
  • Golf clubs
  • Hockey nets
  • Surfboards
You’ll better appreciate these space-hogging items when they’re stored off-site.


It’s easy to accumulate pricey equipment when you’re into photography and videography. Items such as cameras, lenses, hard drives, and other photography equipment can add up quickly in space and cost. Keep expensive photography gear safe by securing it in a self-storage unit.


If you’re a nature lover that prefers to sleep under a blanket of the stars, you’ve probably acquired your fair share of camping equipment. If we know one thing about tents, sleeping bags, camping stoves, and lanterns, it’s that they’re great at taking up room. Leave your valuable home space for the things you need at home and store the outdoor camping gear in a unit you can easily access when the urge to camp strikes.
