A recent poll conducted on EasyStorageSearch.com, a directory of self-storage facilities nationwide, showed that the most common reason for people to seek out storage is a temporary need for more space, not a long-term requirement. Of 100 respondents, 43 said they were looking for short-term storage; only 15 had a more permanent need. Sixteen were making a local move, another 16 were moving cross-country. The remaining 10 indicated another, unspecified reason for seeking self-storage.
