Posted on: November 11th, 2015 by safeselfstoragecalgary No Comments

Winter is here and unless you enjoy freezing cold temperatures and small amounts of daylight, then you aren’t going to have a lot of fun. There are a lot of things around our houses that we just won’t be using that much anymore, and keeping them in your home is going to take up a lot of extra space or expose them to the weather. You do have options though. If you know what to use self-storage for in winter, then you can save yourself a lot of space and work.

Summer clothes

You know all of those warm months where you let it all hang out? Shorts, skirts, tank tops, t-shirts, and all your other light clothing have no use anymore. You could just fold them and keep them in your room, but that’s very cumbersome and will quickly crowd the place. You could box them up but then that is going to take a lot of time and use up all of your basement or attic. It is best to leave them in a safe and heated self-storage unit. It could even help cut down on your energy bills since there will be less clutter in the basement.

Other seasonal products

Some things that you are going to use a lot when it is warm but not lay a finger on when the temperature drops are things like lawn equipment, outdoor gear, and other odds and ends. Consider storing your lawn mower, your bikes, skateboards, boots, rakes and anything else that you won’t be using when the world is covered in snow. Keeping them with us will keep them in much better shape than if you put them in your own shed.

Anything that cold can damage

The cold is just as unfriendly to certain objects as it is to our bodies. Exposure to the cold can damage anything with batteries, anything with electronics, things with small engines like scooters, and anything with liquid. Consider leaving your electronics that aren’t in use in our temperature-controlled units. It will keep them fresh for the summertime.

The weather outside is going to be frightful for a long time. Keeping all of the extra stuff in your house is going to take up way too much room and cause way too many pile-ups and problems. Our temperature-controlled units will help keep your things safe and warm in the winter time. Knowing what you should use self-storage for in winter can go a long way.
