When most people think about self storage they figure it is just for people who are moving and need a temporary place to store their possessions or they think it is for people who are downsizing their homes and have nowhere else to store their things. Well reality is that self storage facilities do provide space for the storage of your home goods but we also provide spaces for many more purposes than just items from your home. For instance many businesses such as plumbers, builders and pharmaceutical representatives utilize self storage space for the storing of their products and materials. This makes their job much less cluttered as they don’t have to keep their work materials at their homes, offices or in their vehicles. Now with this in mind a self storage unit could also be an excellent thing to have for the use of your excess seasonal items.
Now when I say seasonal items this does include items like your Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving decorations but it is also much more than that. These seasonal items could be anything from your lawnmower and weed whacker being stored over the winter time to your snow blower and snow shovels in the summer time and anything in between. When you are out of space in your shed or if you don’t have a shed to store your seasonal items, a self storage unit could be a no brainer for your seasonal storage needs. Just think if you don’t have a shed instead of covering your lawn mower, weed whacker and gardening supplies with a tarp over the winter where they will be mostly exposed to the elements, get yourself a storage space to put them in so you can protect them for years to come. The same applies with your snow blower and seasonal winter tools. Just replace the snow blower for the lawn mower in the summer and in the winter put the lawn mower in and take the snow blower out for the season.
Another great storage idea for seasonal storage that is frequently used especially over the winter time is car, boat and RV storage. When you take your boat off the water and winterize it for the closed season and need a place to store it over the winter, an outdoor self storage spot for your boat is an excellent option. So if you don’t have room in your driveway for your boat during the closed season an outdoor self storage spot is a great alternative to storing at your local marina over the winter, not to mention you will be saving a good chunk of change at a self storage facility compared to storing at a marina.
Now if you have an RV you can also store that in an outdoor self storage spot all year around if you wish. Depending on what your town ordinance is, you may not be able to store your RV in your driveway and need to find place to storing your RV all year round or maybe just seasonally. Either way look no further, the answer is just down the road at your local self storage facility. Outdoor self storage spots are ideal for storing your RV or your boat or perhaps both If needed.
Now for storing your classic or Sunday car over the winter time I would highly recommend a self storage unit over an outside storage space. If you are looking to keep your car preserved over the wintertime you will definitely want to keep your car out of the elements and within a self storage unit. Self storage facilities generally have units the size of one car garages available to store your vehicle in which are far superior to using a canvas tarp to keep your vehicle preserved over the winter time if you don’t have a garage to store in. Before you invest in an expensive canvas tarp for your vehicle which will probably only last one rough winter season on your car, look into a self storage unit because it may be the answer you’re looking for to protect your vehicle over the winter.
Now that you have some ideas for your seasonal storage needs, don’t hesitate to look into a self storage facility to rescue you from unwanted clutter or you’re seasonal storage needs, it may be just what you have been looking for.
