Who doesn’t love a few summertime memories? At Safeguard Storage, we have the perfect seasonal solution to ensure all your summer goods remain safe around the year. This blog will delve into the many ways self-storage can help prepare you for summer. 

After this blog, you’ll understand the importance of year-round self-storage for seasonal items and be ready to enjoy your summer without any concerns. 

Organise Your Summer Items For Storage

When asking what items should be stored, you should consider any item that is used primarily for summer. Anything which you barely use during the winter months should go into storage until it’s time. As a rule of thumb, when you’re cleaning up your home for storage, you should take full advantage of the occasion. 

What do we mean by this? We believe that your household items can be placed into three different categories – throw away, donate and store. Maximising the use of your self-storage unit is of the utmost importance to us. Ensuring that only seasonal (in this case, summer) items are stored in the unit allows you to rest assured, knowing that all the items are protected for when the sunny times come around.

What Items Should Be Stored For Summer?

As mentioned above, there are several summer items that you can store in your new self-storage unit. Some of these items include: 

  • Clothes
  • Togs 
  • Pool/Beach Toys 
  • Barbecues (no gas bottles) 
  • Towels 
  • Fans/Cooling Units

Remember, storing summer items is best to do right before winter. Before winter, there may be many opportunities to still use these items, so you may wish to wait until the weather begins cooling down before you engage in seasonal storage. 

How Can I Ensure Items Remain Dry While In Storage?

Firstly, when you rent a self-storage unit with Safeguard Storage, you’re guaranteed to receive a unit that is clean, dry and secure. It’s important that any item you intend to store inside is dry. If there is still water or moisture in an item stored, it will cause mould to develop over time – which no one wants. Not only may it cause damage to the item, but the smell will also spread to other areas of the unit. 

While we advise all customers to ensure dry items around the clock, there are several devices/substances that are excellent dehumidifiers in storage units. 

Could I Store A Summer Vehicle In Self-Storage?

Yes! At Safeguard Storage, we offer a secure solution for vehicles whenever you need it. Keep your valuable car, small boat or jetski protected during the winter months when you have no use.
