Self-Storage Tips: Getting Ready for Fall
There's no denying things will be different this fall, but the leaves are still changing, and temperatures will drop. As we enjoy the sweater weather and hot cider, it's time to start preparing for the winter. Our affordable Belleville self-storage units are perfect for keeping your summer items safe while you make room for snowblowers, jackets, and scarves.
Here are a few tips to make the most out of your end of the season storage. Are you looking for a unit? Please call U-Lock-It Self Storage today for availability.
Keep it organized
It's more fun taking out the swimsuits than it is putting them back in a box. There's no denying that. But you should still take your time and keep organized when putting away your summer items. Make sure you pack clothes neatly in a box with other clothes (i.e., don't store them along with summer toys). Label every box, so you're not scrambling next spring.
Do you really need that?
Storing items to make room for the next season is the perfect opportunity to eliminate clutter. While you're filling your boxes, ask yourself, "do I really need this?" If the item is still in good shape, consider selling or donating. This is a great way to free up room and use fewer boxes.
We suggest using labeled plastic bins for storing summer clothes. Storing this way will keep your clothes looking and smelling great when you take them out in the spring. For lawn furniture, we suggest cleaning thoroughly before putting the covers on them. If you don't have lawn furniture covers, we recommend using a tarp.
While it's no fun thinking about winter when the sun is still hot, you don't want to miss out on the opportunity to beat clutter with an Ypsilanti self-storage unit. Call us today for availability and prices.
