Using Self Storage to Store Outdoor Furniture and Equipment for the Autumn | Countryside Self Storage

No matter how hard we might try to hold on to the long, lazy days of summer, they simply don’t last forever. Colder weather, rain, and even snow will all be here before you know it. As the weather changes, we no longer need a lot of the items that make summertime so much fun, whether that’s outdoor furniture or seasonal gear for camping, sports, and more. Rather than leaving summer gear out in the elements or sacrificing precious garage space, why not take advantage of Missouri self-storage units to keep all of it protected and out of the way as the weather changes? When the weather warms up next spring, everything will be clean and ready to go!

What Can You Keep in Self Storage Units Near You This Autumn? You can store anything and everything that you don’t want sitting out in the bad weather or cluttering up the garage this fall. Take a look at the list below and think about each item you own.
Consider where you’re keeping it now, and think about how much space you could save in the garage or basement by moving it all to Missouri self-storage near you!
  • Bikes, motorcycles, ATVs—even jet skis and boats!
  • Camping gear, including tents and other equipment
  • Gardening tools or lawn and garden implements
  • Golf clubs, fishing gear, and other sports equipment
  • Grills, smokers, barbecues—and everything that goes with them!
  • Outdoor power equipment and lawnmowers
  • Paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes
  • Patio and other outdoor furniture, umbrellas, outdoor cushions, the works!
  • Pool accessories and maintenance supplies
  • Pots and planters

What can you do with all that extra space? You can use it for all the stuff you’ll need during the fall and winter months: leaf blowers, snow shovels, skis, toboggans, winter sports equipment, hunting gear, you name it! And hey, since you’ve got all that extra space in your garage, you can park your car inside and keep it out of the weather.

Tips on Prepping Outdoor Furniture and Equipment for Storage: To get the most out of your Missouri storage units, you’ll want to make sure that everything is ready for storage before you put it away. How? Make sure that it’s clean and in good working order. When it comes time to get things out next spring, you want everything to be ready to go. If anything needs to be repaired, you should do it before it goes into storage.

The right way to clean and care for items that are going into storage depends on what it is and what it’s made out of. When in doubt, consult your owner’s manual, especially for motor-driven equipment.

Whatever you’re getting ready to store this fall, even the smallest self-storage units near you have enough room for most of the items that you might want to keep out of the way (and out of the weather) until next season.
