Unless you're very sure you will be coming back for these things very soon (like in 2 years), I recommend you skip the storage
The cost of the storage
to prevent degradation is fairly high - especially for goods that you probably will not be returning for.
Will you really want to return to your old furniture, kitchen goods, appliances
Or are you more likely going to return to a different kind of life, reflecting a different set of priorities and interests than you had when you were creating your current
collection (perhaps while you were raising children
or building a career)?
Vehicles degrade over time and lose value due to obsolescence. Without routine care, you will come back to a car with dried out fabrics, weakened seals
, and probably a storage bill that will exceed the cost of simply selling it now, and purchasing
a replacement later.
