Tips on storing out-of-season gear
September 22, 2014
With summer at a close, you’re probably thinking that it’s time to pack up and store all the summer gear that you’ve enjoyed the last several months, things like portable swimming pools, watercraft, rafts, kayaks and other summer-only items.
As the weather turns toward fall and then winter, you’ll be moving other items to safe storage. Outdoor patio furniture and cushions, patio and yard toys, lawn and garden equipment – they all need to be stored safely and securely to protect your investment.
Many people use their outdoor sheds, packing things in a too-small building subject to cold and heat – and alongside the nests of critters looking for shelter. Others use a covered outdoor space, counting on awnings to protect their gear from the elements. Patio furniture often gets covered up with plastic storage covers, subject to damaging condensation.
No one wants to risk having their investment in seasonal gear and décor (including holiday décor and outdoor decorative displays) ruined by exposure to the elements or to rodents or other animals.
Mini-self-storage is another option, but can be expensive. But there’s a better choice that you may not have considered: Crown Relocations’ storage facilities. Our warehouses have thousands of square feet of warehouse space that is clean and secure. Dallas’ warehouse, for example has over 30,000 square feet of space with 40% air-conditioned and under 24-hour video surveillance. Your goods will be housed safely, securely and ready to use when the seasons change again.
