Why do I need Self Storage this Summer?

Therefore, you do not want to be distracted by any linger anxiety or clutter caused by lack of storage space. A self storage unit is useful for storing bulky summer essentials that take up too much space at home but serve to make a memorable, fun filled summer.


It’s all well and good to store such seasonal items in a shed, garage or attic. However, those with smaller properties may not benefit from these privileges.

Therefore, now is the perfect time to invest in these dream items to ensure this summer is as special as possible, alongside the worthwhile investment in storage space in which to keep and protect these coveted items.

In order to keep your treasured seasonal items safe from theft or harsh weather conditions and to free up space in your home, invest in in self storage and you’ll have a handy, affordable, accessible, external space to store all anything your heart desires this summer!

Family Bike Rides

Family Bike Rides

There are so many benefits of owning bikes:

  • Cycling enables you to spend quality time with your family. After 2 years of covid anxieties and restrictions, families are struggling to connect with each other after spending too much time in close proximity rather than spending genuine quality time together. Cycling offers a fantastic solution for this problem, as it helps you enjoy some quality time with your loved ones outside of the home, experiencing nature together and getting active.
  • Cycling is a healthy activity. Cycling can burn 600 calories an hour and your metabolism will stay revved up for hours afterwards. In addition, cycling helps your children to be more fitness conscious and bike riding keeps kids active. Most health experts say children need an hour of exercise each day to develop strong, healthy bones and muscles.
  • Cycling reduces stress. Cycling helps release stress and make your mind more serene by releasing dopamine. Unwind after a long week with a calming bike ride or an adventurous cycle with the family.
  • Cycling is a sustainable mode of transportation. Due to an increase in greenhouse gas emission, the environment is becoming more toxic. We must act now in order to save our planet for our future generations. Although cycling can’t single-handedly avert this impending disaster, it can certainly help mitigate this problem. Cycling with kids helps you show them you care about the planet and in turn they will follow your example.

Yet these benefits are meaningless if you have nowhere to store your bikes. Therefore, in order to reap the benefits of bikes, you should invest in a self storage unit in which to store them.

The Down-Low on Boat Storage

A boat is a undoubtably a wonderful vehicle during the summer for family bonding and adventure. However, during the cold winter months, water sports is unpleasant and impractical, and your boat can become a troublesome, bulky item that clutters up your garage or shed. Therefore, it’s a good idea to store it in a storage unit.

But here is what you need to know before you store your boat:

  1. Have your boat serviced before you put it in storage, make sure that all mechanical parts are in good working order. This way you can take it out in the summer it is ready for use.
  2. Clean your boat before you store it as residual salt water can cause rust.
  3. We recommend that clients sit their boats on a trailer when they are storing them as this makes it so much easier to retrieve in the summer. Therefore, make sure you chose a storage unit that will fit both your boat and trailer inside it.
  4. Cover your boat up in order to keep dust off your boat, so that you don’t have to spend time cleaning it when you pick it up.

A Caravan Holiday is a British Summertime Staple

At Boylin’s Self Store we are aware that a caravan is the perfect vehicle to enable and enhance your summer holiday. It’s a British summertime staple, as many families all over the UK chose to holiday in a caravan during the summer months in Wales, the Lake or Peak District or Cornwall.

But during the winter months, your caravan a lot more vulnerable to theft when left on a driveway or in a garage. Indeed, according to recent figures released by Shield Total Insurance, stating that 57% of caravan thefts take place from home. Moreover, it can be a cumbersome burden and source of resentment as it clutters up your driveway or garage.

By storing your caravan in a self storage unit, you will ensure your vehicle’s safety and that it remains a source of excitement, holiday fun and family memories.

When storing your caravan or motor home in a storage facility remember these key tips:

  • Secure all the caravans windows and rooflights.
  • Chock the wheels and leave the handbrake off to prevent brake seizure over long storage periods.
  • Remove all food and perishable goods and leave the fridge door ajar to prevent mold growth.
  • Drain the water system and toilet to prevent against frost and water pipes bursting during the cold winter months.
  • Store your keys in a safe, memorable place at home or within your storage unit so you don’t lose or forget them ready for when you want to access your motor home later in the year.
