Make Room for Summer with Self-Storage

title image

While Mother Nature continues to rein in winter so spring can flourish, we’ve decided to think ahead to the lazy, hot days of summer and all the things we want to do. 

Afterall, it’s never too early to think about or get organized for summer, especially with this confusing weather!

To help you get organized for summer, you need to make room for it. This is where a self-storage unit can come in handy. It’s an easy and affordable way to instantly gain more space. A storage unit is perfect for storing:

  • Snowblowers
  • Snow shovels
  • Winter tires
  • Snowmobiles
  • Skis and boots
  • Snowboards
  • Snowshoes
  • Toboggans & sleds
  • Skates
  • Sports equipment
  • Ice fishing gear & equipment
  • Snowsuits & boots
  • Bulky clothing & blankets

All too often, the above list of winter items take over your garage during spring, summer and fall months. They also annoyingly bury things that you need now or will need very soon. You can solve both these problems by renting a self-storage unit. Once you’ve reclaimed your garage you will have room for important summer things like gardening tools and supplies, the lawnmower, bikes, play equipment, patio cushions and summer toys (for both adults and kids). There may even be enough room in your garage for you to work on a project or even convert it into a summer mancave.

Whether this is your first time renting a self-storage unit or you’re a seasoned renter, here are some tips for organizing your self-storage unit so that your stuff is easy to find and remains in the same condition it was in when it went into the storage unit:

  • Power wash outdoor items to remove any road salt and dry thoroughly.
  • Empty all gas from motorized equipment.
  • Do a visual check of your stored items to see if anything needs repair or replacement.
  • Launder all clothing and outerwear and store in plastic, airtight bins.
  • Hang snow shovels to take up less room and prevent damage.
  • Set up shelves, which allow you to make the most of your vertical space and help with overall organization. Shelves are perfect for storing helmets, boots and sports equipment.

And let’s not forget that small businesses can also use self-storage to make room for summer inventory. Self-storage for excess inventory is a huge value add for a small business, especially with the ever-increasing rental costs for commercial and industrial storage space. We offer a large variety of storage unit sizes and flexibility with our month-to-month contracts. This means that if you have a large summer shipment coming in or have decided to order excess summer stock because the volume discount was too amazing to pass up on, you don’t have pull your hair out stressing about where to put it. Simply call, email or text us and we’ll happily help you solve your problem with self-storage.

We hope you had fun thinking about the warm summer days ahead, and that you have been inspired to start making room for it. If you have any questions about self-storage, we’re just an email, text or phone call away.

Very reliable storage. A good solution to park your car and keeping it protected from all weather conditions. Although a bit remote location.. but the price and the service was worth it.

I went in to find out some information on storage units for when I move in a couple weeks and was happily surprised by the customer service I received. I had looked at a few other storage facilities in Woodstock but their customer service was terrible compared to Jared's from Storage Solutions. He was professional and understanding of my needs and was ready to help anywhere he could. I will definitely be spreading the word to any of my friends looking for units!

Great rates for a clean, secure, well lit place. Really good staff and a company that cares. New facility and the competitors are pretty tired looking and charging the same rates (if not a bit more).

My husband and I recently relocated from the US and needed a place to store all of our belongings while we secured a new home. The folks at Storage Solutions advised us on the right size unit for our needs, at the right price. They were kind and helpful with all of our "first-timer" questions. We were very confident in the security of the place, and had absolutely no issues. I would highly recommend and use them again if needed.
