Summer is here at last! Now is the time to take part in those activities that you have been dreaming about and planning for the last few months. It is also the time of year to take advantage of the weather and the long summer evenings and make the most of your garden and patio to entertain family and friends. Self Storage Unit

Bring out your camping gear, canoes, bikes, and sporting equipment such as golf clubs as the summer months are the perfect time to use all these. If your house is too small to store these items you may already have a storage unit that you rent to keep your seasonal equipment. A storage unit is an ideal place to keep your garden tools and equipment such as lawnmowers and leaf blowers that you don’t need daily for most of the year. Those who are seasoned users of storage space know that making use of a storage facility is a great way to keep your home in order, whatever the season.

It is the perfect time for that summer clean up when you can put away all that winter stuff. If you had to wade through boxes of stuff to get to your patio furniture and your barbeque grill, you may wish to consider doing your clean up by putting all those unnecessary winter items into a self storage unit. Your home will have a lot more space, and you will not be confronted by these winter belongings every time you need to find something.

Getting Organised for Summer

If you have never used a self storage unit for storing your seasonal goods before, you will be amazed as to how many winter things you actually own that you can store all summer long. This clutter is probably packed away in your garage, shed, attic or taking up space in your cupboards. There is a way you can remove it from your home and store it safely at a facility such as Stop & Store Lowestoft for the summer months until you need it again.

  • Sort through your bulky winter clothes and pack them away in boxes. Consider using the airtight stackable plastic bins that you can hire from Stop & Store Lowestoft as these will keep your clothes mould and mildew free. Summer brings heat and humidity and to prevent any moisture-related damage to your belongings ensure that any clothing your are storing is clean and properly dry before putting it away.
  • Skiing equipment is expensive, so you need to store it carefully. Skis shouldn’t be stored in your attic or garage in case they get damaged. After you have applied ski storage wax to your skis, pack them carefully in your storage unit. Store your ski boots once you have cleaned them and made sure they are dry. Pack them in their original box if you still have it or wrap them up in a cloth. Use moisture absorbers in your boots to prevent mould and mildew forming.
  • Label your boxes clearly so that if you need to find something in a hurry, you will be able to. Pack the boxes that you will not need in the foreseeable future at the back of your unit, with the stuff you may need easily accessible at the front.
