In our experience, self storage helps people deal with one aspect of a family death. Custom Self Storage has had several Estates rent units for a few months. They do this to give the family time to sort out which child gets what. A family death often means you need to move quickly after the funeral to empty out an estate home. This is done because the administrator or executor of the estate faces the obligation to turn estate assets into cash. Typically, the home is the most valuable asset to be sold.
The home will not sell fast if it is full of Grandma’s things. So the executor and the real estate agent will feel the need to move out the belongings quickly. Speed is usually key here, so emptying out the home as fast as possible will allow everyone to move forward as quickly as possible.
If it was a rental, you need to vacate furniture to stop rent. Alternatively, the deceased may have been in a care facility. There is usually a waiting list, so the manager needs the family to remove the deceased’s furnishings as soon as possible. Leaving the items inside the care home might incur high costs against the estate.
This is where self storage helps. Putting the estate possession into 1-2 storage lockers provides a fast and very flexible solution. The estate and family can then take a few months to sort, sell, and distribute the belongings. It also allows for proper accounting of all the items.
