Each season brings about new weather, new sports, new holidays, and new “stuff.”  As much fun as it is to begin a new season, we are always left with the same question…where to store all of last season’s items?  Don’t let the change of season leave you feeling frustrated and cramped for space.  Instead, consider the many benefits of storing seasonal items in a portable storage unit.  Rather than dreading the chore of packing up all of last season’s items, you can welcome a new season with open arms.  Here a just a few ways in which you can use portable storage each season. 


Patio Furniture: At the first sign of spring we can’t wait to get outdoors and enjoy basking in the warmth of the sun.  It is the season for backyard barbecues and outdoor evenings on the patio.  It is important to properly care for your patio furniture if you want to maximize its longevity.  That means you will need to find a place to store it in the winter.  Portable storage unites provide the space you need and the protection your patio furniture needs so you can extend its life and keep enjoying your patio furniture year after year.


Pool Equipment: As summer draws to a close it is time to start thinking about closing the pool and preparing it for the colder months ahead.  If you are need of a place to store chemicals, pool toys, accessories, and pool equipment, a portable storage unit is just what you need.


Sporting Goods: Whether you have a house full of athletic kids, you enjoy summertime water sports, or your family just loves the outdoors, you are probably drowning in all of the sporting goods stored in your garage and attic.  Bats, balls, golf clubs, skis, cleats, and camping equipment are just a few of the seasonal sporting goods that might be crammed in your garage.  With a portable storage unit, you can neatly organize all of your seasonal sporting goods and free up loads of space in your home. 


Holiday Decorations: If your family is one of the many that enjoys decorating for the holidays, than you know just how much space that holiday décor takes up.  Why waste space in your closets and attic for items that you only use once a year?  Use the storage in your home for more practical purposes by storing your holiday decorations in a storage unit.


Seasonal Clothing: Not everyone is lucky enough to have mounds of closet space.  If you are one of the many that crams 4 seasons worth of clothes into one tiny closet, it might be time to rethink your storage strategy.  Free up space in your closets by packing up shoes and clothes that are out of season and storing them in a portable storage unit. 


College Students: Each fall thousands of college students begin the process of moving furniture, clothes, electronics, and accessories into their dorm or apartment.  And every summer they have to move all of these items back out.  Instead of cramming all of these items into mom and dad’s garage, consider storing them in a convenient and affordable storage unit.


Lawn Equipment: As the weather turns cold, it signals the end of summer and that means it’s time to take a break from all of the summer yard work.  Why let all of these bulky tools take up space in your garage or shed when you won’t be using them for the next 3-6 months? Preserve your equipment and take back your space by putting these items in a storage unit.
