Fears of Self Storage

Let’s break it down for those of you trying to face the fears of self-storage… firstly, what exactly does “fear” mean?

An unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. A feeling of anxiety concerning the outcome of something or the safety of someone.

Be afraid of (someone or something) as likely to be dangerous, painful or harmful.

So why do so many of us FEAR self-storage?

Is it because our belongings are out of sight and perhaps this makes us feel they are not being looked after or kept safe?
Is it because we fear the commitment to paying for a storage facility every month?
