Trading Winter for Spring – Self Storage Tips
Spring is here! Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, warm breezes are blowing, and the yard here at The Storage Inn Self Storage in Egg Harbor Township, NJ is a beehive of activity!
Why is our property suddenly full of customers you ask? Because now is the perfect time for new customers to get that much needed extra storage space! And our current storage rental customers are swapping out their winter items for their spring gear.
Many of our Storage Inn customers use their storage unit to safely, store seasonal items. This helps them free up extra space in their home or office. And since our storage facility is monitored 24/7 for security all of our storage tenants know the belongings they only use during certain parts of the year will be safe and secure until they are needed next year.
Out with the cold and in with the warm weather gear!
Here are a few tips to make the swap go more smoothly. Follow these guidelines and enjoy the best spring season ever!
Deciding what to store for the summer
Make a list of items that you will use only during the cold weather months. Obvious contenders for self-storage include holiday decorations, sleds, snow shovels, space heaters, heavy blankets, and winter apparel such as gloves, boots, and hats.
Time to remove your warm-weather gear
Hopefully you created a list of all the things you put in your storage unit, so it’s easy to jog your memory and remember what’s in there. Items that you’ll want to remove may include lawn and garden tools, bicycles, beach chairs, patio furniture, and sports equipment.
You’ll probably want to pull outdoor toys, such as bicycles and roller-skates. Gardening equipment will come in handy, as will portable fire pits, beach supplies, and other sports gear.
Clean as you work
Take the time to do some spring cleaning in your storage unit. While our Storage Inn units are protected, they still accumulate dust just like any other space. Wipe things down, sweep the floors, and check boxes to make sure they’re still strong and sturdy. This yearly maintenance will keep your unit neat and secure!
I hope these tips help you make the most of your self-storage unit…. I have to go now – I think I just saw one of our tenants, Mr Pemberton, roller skating around the facility in a bathing suit and Hawaiian shirt – Happy Spring!
