Self-storage is incredibly useful especially during times of change such as; going to college, moving, deployment, downsizing, decluttering, or renovation. But it is useful for more than just temporary storage, use storage year-round with seasonal storage! Here's how to make the most of your unit all year:

Spring Storage:

As the weather starts to warm up, self-storage can be a great place to store all of your winter gear. This is especially true if you live in an apartment or condo and don't have a lot of extra space. Items to consider include:
  • Winter Decorations
  • Snow Shovels
