Rent a Storage Unit for the Winter Season

Unfortunately, summer doesn’t last forever. If you haven’t already started packing up for the end of the summer season around Labor Day, the idea of colder temperatures and changing leaves may just give you the inspiration you need to rent a storage unit. As summer turns into fall, we wave goodbye to our beach chairs, umbrellas, patio furniture, pool toys, grills, sports equipment, and garden tools. Instead of cramming everything into tight spaces and limiting the amount of storage in your home, you can store your summer items that won’t be used in the upcoming colder months, in a storage unit.

Self-storage can be the perfect solution for those looking to reclaim a closet or spare room at home and is ideal for holding all of your belongings while moving between homes. The convenience of renting a storage unit makes winter storage a popular option for many people every year.


One of the main reasons people rent a storage unit before the fall is for storing seasonal items that won’t be in use until summer comes back around. Rather than keeping all of these objects at home where they take up precious space, you can place them out of the way in a storage unit. Some of the common items people store in the winter include:

  • Lawn Mowers
  • Patio Furniture
  • Beach Furniture
  • Grills
  • Pool Toys
  • Summer Clothes

The Perfect Fit

Once you’ve decided to rent a storage unit for winter storage, the first thing you need to figure out is what storage unit size you’ll need. Self storage units come in a variety of sizes to suit a variety of needs. From climate control, to indoor or outdoor units. Have a trailer, boat, or RV you want to store? We got you covered, with our outdoor lots that are secured 24/7 with video surveillance, and keypad entries.

Features that Make Storage Worryfree

Another factor you’ll need to consider before renting a storage unit is what kinds of features you want your storage unit to come with. Storage features are created to improve your storage experience and help keep your items safe for long periods of time. Here are some features you may want to consider during winter storage.

  • Security: When it’s time to store your summer toys like grills, RVs, boats, and motorcycles, for the winter months, consider protecting them from vandals and mother nature. With video surveillance, security measures such as keypad entries, property management, alarms, and our mobile app which allows you to view your unit whenever you want.
  • Climate Control: For most of the country, climate control during the winter months is a must. Sensitive items like clothing, wooden outdoor furniture, electronics, and more can be damaged by extreme cold and moisture. Climate-controlled storage protects your belongings from that.
