Spring into Seasonal Storage

As the saying goes, spring has sprung. Have you sprung for that storage unit for the season? Now is the time of year for rejuvenation, rebirth, and spring cleaning. But this won’t be just another article about spring cleaning. No, this is part of a blog series about seasonal storage and how it can be an asset as you transition from one season to the next.

After those long, winter months, maybe you find your home way too cluttered from the leftover knickknacks and decorations from the holiday season. Storing them away for next year will not only clear up the clutter but will also clear up that mental space.

When packing up for the winter, make sure you’ve stored those winter clothes and decorations in airtight containers, like plastic storage containers. It is also a good idea to shake out any clothes or covers before handling them, just to get that dust off them. Below is a list of what to plan for when using a storage center for keeping your home organized for every season.

What Features to Look for:
  • Climate-controlled/air-conditioned. Spring is notorious for bringing rain. And with those April showers comes–humidity! A standard rental is helpful for just keeping your belongings out of the elements. If you want to bump up your protection, selecting rentals that have features such as air-conditioning or climate control can help drive away that weird weather that threatens your things over the coming months.
  • Drive-up storage. Pulling up directly to the front door of your rental may not sound like an important feature on the offset, but you’ll be glad it’s an option while lugging around that lawnmower. It’s more than convenient, it’s just the only smart way to do things.

  • What to Remove from Storage:
  • Pool/boat/RV cover
  • Spring/cooler weather clothing
  • Gardening equipment
  • Lawnmowers and weed whackers
  • Patio Furniture
  • Grill/grill equipment
  • College dorm furniture/appliances
  • School supplies
  • Spring decorations

  • What to Store Away:
  • Winter clothes/sweaters
  • Winter jackets
  • Gloves/scarves/hats
  • Snow clothes/coveralls
  • Winter boots
  • Blankets and quilts
