At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.
As winter approaches, it’s a good time to think about switching out the seasonal items you have in storage. Our mini-storage units are great for storing those items that you only need for part of the year– that way, they aren’t taking up space in your home when they’re not in use.
Once the warmer weather goes away, there may a number of items that you no longer need, such as:
- Pool Floats
- Kiddie Pools
- Outdoor Furniture
- Beach Toys
- Beach Chairs
- Warm Weather Clothing
Before you store any of these items, be sure to clean them thoroughly. For clothing, it’s ideal to store it in an airtight, clear plastic container.
At Stow and Go Storage, we also offer boat storage. When the weather gets cooler, and you’re ready to put away your boat for the season, be sure to keep us in mind.
Stow and Go Storage’s mini-storage units are great for storing seasonal fall and winter items such as Halloween and Christmas decorations, sleds, snow shovels, and even gifts! That’s right– you can use your storage unit to hide your holiday gifts from those little spying eyes before Christmas.
Tips for Storing Your Christmas Tree and Ornaments
One of the most important things you can do when storing your Christmas tree is to cover it. There are a number of bags and boxes made especially for Christmas tree storage that you can use for just this. You can also use the original box that the tree came in, but these boxes are typically cardboard and will not hold up over time, nor will they offer you maximum storage protection for your tree; however, it’s better to use the tree’s box than nothing at all if you’re in a pinch.
Make sure that you take all of your ornaments off of your tree to protect them from breaking during transport. You can get storage boxes made especially for ornaments with individual compartments to protect them. Or, you can wrap them in tissue paper to protect them from breaking while in storage. If you have fragile glass ornaments, it’s best not to keep them in a non-climate controlled storage unit.
You should also take the lights off of your tree unless it’s a pre-lit tree. To keep your lights organized, you can cut a rectangle of cardboard and wrap the lights around it; this will help prevent tangles and knots, not to mention a whole lot of frustration come next Christmas season.
