DECLUTTER YOUR YARD OR GARAGE

Spring is an excellent time to make room and start fresh.  Fall is a great time too.  Go through  your home, yard and garage and get rid of any of your summertime or seasonal items.  Toss, donate or sell any of the items you did not use.

PATIO FURNITURE

Although you might not feel ready to put away the patio furniture, the reality is temperatures could drop any day.  Make sure you clean and store your patio furniture in a dry and protected place.  If you don't have room in your garage or yard, putting your patio furniture in a self storage unit will keep it protected. Even though your furniture will be in a storage unit, make sure you cover everything to prevent any dust build up.

GARDENING TOOLS

It's time to clean and put away all your gardening tools (lawnmower, hedge trimer, weed whacker and other tools).  Instead of loading up your shed or garage with these items, get them out of the way by renting a self storage unit.  Self Storage units are a great way to get the extra space you need so your car doesn't have to give up the garage.  

OTHER WAYS A SELF STORAGE UNIT CAN HELP

Self storage is great for summer clothing, motorcycles, ATV's, boat, canoes, kayaks and paddleboards.   

VEHICLE OR RV STORAGE TIPS

Before storing your RV or vehicle it's a good idea to clean the inside and out.  In trailers and motorhomes, leave the fridge and freezer doors open to prevent mold growth while in storage.  Add any fuel stabilizers, drain the tanks and remove the batteries.

THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN USING SELF STORAGE

If storing season items, such as a BBQ, left over food on the grill can be chance for rodents to enter your storage unit.  Clean everything off with soap and water before storing, it's a good idea to run the grills thru your dishwasher.

Leave propane tanks outside and at home, these tanks are prohibited from being stored in your storage unit.

Visit your unit regularly and whenever you wish between the hours of 6 AM and 10 PM.
