Albuquerque Self Storage’s Guide to Winter Storage

One of the best things about renting a self-storage facility, is that you have access to it any time you want. You can move things in and out at your leisure. You are not putting items into a bank vault where they will disappear for years on end. No, you are putting them somewhere safe and secure, where you can have access to them when you need them, with no hassle at all. This makes self-storage facilities perfect for season storage. You can rotate what you keep in your storage unit each season, from spring to summer to fall to winter and back to spring again. Given that it is January, today’s blog is going to focus on winter storage.

Winter Storage Means Pack Your Summer Gear

This advice sounds a little confusing at first, but I makes sense as you start thinking about it. Given that it is currently winter, you want east access to all your winter gear. You want to keep it at home where you can just reach out and put it on. This means that it is time to pack up all your summer gear, and put it away in your self-storage unit. Bathing suites, water toys, fishing gear, all of these items can get boxed up and packed away until the sun comes out again.

Worry about the Freeze

Winter here in Albuquerque gets cold. Really cold. This means that you need to consider temperature when you are putting items away for storage. Some items, such as pressure washers, could get damaged when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. If you are storing anything that contains water, make sure you drain the water. Think about each item you are putting away, and consider if it could be damaged by exposure to extreme temperatures. If you have any questions, you should consult with the manufacturer.
