Seasonal Storage for Summer Space!by NW Storages on 04/10/18
It’s time for summer self-storage! Whether it’s college-related, winter gear, or even a seldom-used vehicle, summer is a great time to store whatever you’ve got, out of the way and fully secure. Whether you need it for a month or for a season, or even longer, self-storage provides great security, convenience, and affordability. Here are just a few of the many reasons you might need to rent a storage unit this summer.
School’s almost out for the summer, which often means kids home from college, kids getting ready to leave for college, or an impending change in living arrangements once college starts again.
With summer break approaching, you may need storage space for several reasons, but whatever the reason you need storage related to higher education and summer break, we can help. We’ve got the space you need to keep everything safe and sound until September.
Why do you need summer storage?
A recent high school grad accumulating furniture and appliances for their dorm room.
Your college kid needing a place to keep their dorm furnishings while school’s out.
The need for additional space with one (or more) of your offspring home for break.
That beaming college graduate coming home to look for work, hauling bed and dresser along.
So, all those desks and bookshelves, lamps and storage cubes can all be kept in storage until they’re needed. Anticipating a new dorm or off-campus apartment, your returning college student might need to store his/her belongings in their school town when they come home for the season. Perhaps your recent high school grad has found the perfect bed frame and matching side table, but you just don’t have room in the house to keep it for the next three months. Doesn’t matter, because whether it’s a television or a floor lamp or a giant, green bean bag chair, you can put it in storage for safekeeping.
Are you planning a vacation this summer? If you’re going to be gone for a week or two or even more, it might be worthwhile to put some of your household goods into storage.
Now, you won’t want to store your couch, or bedroom set, but some items in an empty home are likely to be safe, and less likely to be stolen, in self storage. It’s a small investment in time and energy to prepare some of your things to be kept out of the house, in a secure, protected storage facility.
What should you store before vacationing?
Electronics, especially computers, stereos, and televisions.
Art of all kinds. Paintings, wall hangings, lawn sculptures, for instance.
Valuable jewelry. Many storage facilities offer additional security for items like this.
Irreplaceables, such as family photo albums, your mother’s china set, and other belongings you could not replace in the event of vandalism, fire, or natural disaster.
The knowledge that your expensive, unique, and sentimental belongings are safely locked away and protected is priceless, and will give you the peace of mind you need to enjoy your summer vacation.
Not only is Christmas over, but so are other major holidays, including Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and more. So whether it’s that gigantic artificial holiday tree or the great, big Easter Bunny you had in your yard last month, all those holiday decorations and accessories can be stored out of the way, freeing up space in your closets and garage for things you’ll actually be using this summer. Perhaps you’d like to store:
Christmas trees and ornaments
Holiday themed place settings
Inflatable holiday lawn decor
Gifts you may have picked up for next Christmas or birthdays
Just think of all the space you’ll save by putting those boxes and boxes of ornaments and decorations in a self-storage unit!
It’s spring! It’s almost summer! Why would you need to keep your snow blower, snow skis, hockey gear, or other cold weather equipment in your house, garage, or shed? You certainly won’t be needing it any time soon. By storing you autumn and winter gear in a secure storage facility you’ll be making room for all those great summer necessities, like camping gear, baseball equipment, yard machinery, and more! Consider storing these things:
Winter sports gear
Cold weather hunting and fishing equipment
Snow blowers, snow shovels, snow plow attachments
Snow skis, ice skates, snowboards, and all their accessories
Snow tires and tire chains
Coats, heavy blankets, snow suits, and other cold weather clothing
Self-storage is always there to make your life a little easier, a little less cluttered, and a lot more organized. By letting your local self-storage company keep your out-of-season items safe and protected, you’ll have more space in your home, and your life, for all that summer fun you’ve been looking forward to!
