Time to Clean Out Your Garage? – Consider These Storage Options for Seasonal Items


If you are like most of us, your garage has become the storage spot in your home for an incredible range of junk, seasonal items, and who knows what. By the time you have everything stuffed in your garage, chances are good there is little room for anything else, let alone your car. While many of us use the garage as a workshop or to store things like lawn mowers, more often than not, this space is one of our top storage options for a wealth of seasonal items.

Not Just Christmas

When it comes to storing seasonal items, this doesn’t just mean Christmas; it also means Easter, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, even the Fourth of July. Then add in your golf clubs, camping gear, bicycles, tennis rackets, snowboards, skis, and the list goes on. By the time you are done, there isn’t room for anything else. When this happens to you, it’s time for you to start looking at the different storage options available to you.

If you are tired of parking your car in the driveway and are ready to reclaim your garage, one option you might want to consider is renting a storage unit for all of this equipment. If you pack everything into tubs and boxes, you should be able to use a standard storage unit as long as the facility you choose is clean and secure. You can rent one large storage unit or several smaller ones based on your needs without killing your budget.

What About Seasonal Vehicles

If you have a jet ski, pop-up trailer, boat, or any other seasonal vehicle, you should consider other storage choices besides filling up your garage with these items. By choosing to use offsite storage, you can safely and securely store them in until the season to use them comes around.

In your search for the best storage options, look for a facility that offers a tall security fence and uses a keycard or coded access entry gate. Be sure they have plenty of illumination, video surveillance, and on-site personnel that are on duty 24/7 to keep your property protected. Anything less may result in damage or theft of your property.

One last item to think about in your search for storage is to consider a climate-controlled unit. These units maintain both temperature and humidity at optimum levels, allowing you to store furniture, paintings, photographs, documents, antiques, and more without worrying about damage.
