What should I put into Self Storage this Winter?

Are you wondering what you can put into self storage over the winter? If so, read on to discover all the items you SHOULD be storing, safe and sound with Boylin’s Self Store this winter.

With the arrival of the chilly, rainy and sometimes snowy winter weather, many of your possessions will soon become redundant; hibernating in your garage, attic or spare room until winter is over.

Having seasonal items taking up room in your house can leave you and your living space a little cramped, particularly during the winter months when most of your living is done inside.

Therefore, Boylin’s Self can keep your summer items safe and secure in easy to access self storage facilities, ensuring that they are immediately ready to use at the first hint of summer.

Creating space in your home by using a secure self storage facility can be a stress saver throughout the winter months.

To get you started on your winter self storage journey, give the following simple steps a go. Before you can begin, you must first determine what stays and what goes into seasonal storage.

Ask yourself questions, such as…

  • Will I use this item in Autumn or Winter?
  • Have I used this item this summer or is it time to sell? After all, why pay to store something you never use?
  • For an item you may need when the weather begins to get better, but do not have room for at home, set it at the front of your storage unit for easy access.

Benefits of Winter and Seasonal Self Storage

  1. Easily rotate your items in storage with the turning of the seasons: If you store in a Boylin’s Self Store facility, you can swap your seasonal items in and out with ease.
  2. Extra room: No one likes clutter in their home – especially when it extends to the spare room, garages, and outdoor areas. Why struggle to accommodate friends and family this winter when a quick and easy declutter can take away some of the stress
  3. Clean and dry storage: Storing items in garden sheds, garages or under tarpaulin during the winter months can affect the condition of your belongings over time. With no warm sunshine to help dry them out, water, mould and mildew can wreak havoc on your belongings during the rainy season. In a climate controlled and weather proof storage unit your belongings are safe come rain or shine!
  4. Secure: Storing your belongings in the garden shed, garage or under cover may give you the space you need inside your home but are they secure? At Boylin’s Self Store, every single one of our self storage units will afford you extra security from theft and weather damage as every single one of our containers is wind and water tight as well as completely secure. All our sites benefit from state-of-the-art CCTV and barrier controls which are only accessible through individual key or fob. So, you can sit back and relax, knowing that your expensive, outdoor belongings are safe from harm year-round.

What should I place in Self Storage over the Winter?

Keep Summer Essentials Safe and Sound this Winter with Self Storage

  • Caravan or boat – A holiday home such as a caravan or a boat is the perfect place to make family memories during the summer time. However, in order to protect these vehicle while it’s out of commission during the harsh winter months from going damp in the cold, wet weather you can place your entire caravan/boat into self storage. The safety of your treasured caravan during the winter is a worthwhile investment!
  • Garden furniture – Outdoor dining tables, sofas, parasols, and BBQs are amazing during the summer months allowing you and the family to kickback in the garden, dine, relax and soak up the sun. However, if you leave this furniture out in the garden shed during the colder, rainy months, it can be severely damaged and rusty. This means you will have to fork out to replace this furniture. Guarantee the safety of your garden furniture by storing it all in a safe, dry storage unit over the winter.
  • Summer clothing and suitcases. Once the last of the sunny weather is over, we recommend you vacuum pack your summer clothes, pop them into suitcases and place them in self storage. This way your wardrobe will be organised, decluttered and seasonally appropriate. Meanwhile your summer clothes will be free from damp and moth balls. Win win! Then as soon as the sun shows its face again you can easily rotate your winter wardrobe and your summer clothes!
