I had to share this great storage solution with you. The company’s tag line is “A fresh idea in self storage™” and I have to agree! If you haven’t heard of them, they’re called Saltbox Storage and they’re located in Burnside.
When you’re selling a home it’s really important to show each room with just the right amount of furniture. Too much furniture in a room will make it feel small and buyers are looking for maximum space. Space = money when you’re selling. A home stager can give you recommendations on what pieces should be removed from your home to maximize space or create better flow through the home. A home stager will also help you with furniture placement in each room. Or maybe a room is doubling as two functional (or not so functional) rooms. I’ve seen office desks in master bedrooms. If there is no other space in the home to set up the desk (or store it)…it’s important to get it out of the house!
So…what’s so great about Saltbox? How about the fact that to store one piece of furniture it’s only $9/month! Yes, you heard right, they will pick up one item at no charge, store it for $9 a month, and return it to you for $20! Of course, you can send more than one piece, and each additional piece will also be $9/month, with the same return cost.
There are some parameters around this…the furniture piece must be less than 50 lbs, and less than 6 ft long.
So, what if it’s over 50 lbs or over 6ft? This is considered an oversized item and will cost more: $39/month
Saltbox will pick it up for free, store it for $39/month, and return it for $45 to you. That’s still a pretty sweet deal to me!
So, what if you have enough excess furniture that you need your own storage space? Saltbox also offer ‘vaults’, in two different sizes:
5x5x7 and 7x7x7 ft
Please note that the free pick up and free return is based on a 3 month minimum contract.
When you sign a contract for 3 months Saltbox will provide 1 free return per month for Vault 25 & 49. Nice!
If you don’t want to sign for a minimum of 3 months then there will be a charge of $90 to pick up the items, and a $90 return fee would also apply. However, keep in mind their movers are also doing all the heavy lifting for you.
What else makes their service amazing?
- They provide two professional movers to do all the moving.
- They wrap all your furniture items
It’s a pretty sweet service if you ask me. Click here to visit their website for full details.
