Winter Self Storage Tips

As the weather outside is frightful, create needed space to make your home delightful for the holidays. Take a proactive approach to declutter your home. 

Securing a self storage unit for the winter helps free up space in your home and garage by storing those summer items in a storage.

Follow these smart self storage tips to keep your possessions safe from the cold winter months.

Make a list of seasonal stuff to store  – 
Detail a list of stuff that you will definitely not be using until spring and summer. Items such as pool toys, summer clothing, motorcycles, jet skis, camping gear and more.

Make repairs, prior to placing items in storage – 
Ensure everything is in good condition before putting it in storage.

Thoroughly clean items – 
Preserve your belongings, by cleaning everything before placing in storage. Remove any dirt, debris, bugs, rust and completely dry things prior to stowing things away for winter. 

Prevent moisture damage – 
Mitigate the possibility of water damage by using pallets to elevate your stuff while in storage.  

Use cotton or wool covers – 
Vinyl or plastic tarps can trap moisture inside, which can cause damage to your valuables. Use heavy moving blankets to provide protection from the elements as well as insulate your items from the cold. 

Know what not to store – 
Not everything is okay to put in storage, some things should never be stored in a unit regardless of what time of year.
