While the official start to summer is still a few weeks away, summer weather is in full swing here in Greenville, NC. With scorching temperatures, a bright shining sun, and high humidity levels, it’s important to stay cool and hydrated to avoid heat strokes; this is all true for when you’re visiting your storage unit as well. Our non-climate controlled units can get pretty hot in the summer, much like a car that’s turned off and sitting in a parking lot. 

If you want to visit your mini-storage unit this summer, it’s always a good time to do so earlier or later in the day. Late morning and early afternoon are the hottest parts of the day, so it’s best to stay inside as much as you can during these times. 

Once you get to your unit, you may want to open it and let it in some fresh air to cool it down a little bit before you spend some time in there. It’s also a good idea to leave the door open while you’re moving about in there, to make sure it gets plenty of ventilation. 

When you visit your mini-storage unit, be sure to bring some cold water to keep yourself cool and hydrated. A portable fan is also a great way to keep cool while you’re visiting your mini-storage unit.

If you start to feel overheated, or if you notice any signs of heat stroke, such as headache, dizziness, and nausea, then sit down to rest immediately and call for help. It’s important to stay safe in this summer heat.

Seasonal Storage 101 | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

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.

Our mini-storage units are perfect for seasonal storage. By this, we mean that you can use our mini-storage units to store items that you only use seasonally, and then when it’s time to use them again, you can switch them out. For example, a Christmas tree can take up a good deal of space in your attic or basement, but it’s only something that you use a few months out of the year. Or how about your snow shovels, pool floats, boogie boards, and lawn chairs? All of these things can take up space in your home, when you only need them for a portion of the year.

Seasonal storage allows you to rotate the items in your mini-storage unit as you need them throughout the year. This helps to keep your home clutter free and your life a little less stressful.

If you want to store summer items such as beach chairs and umbrellas, just be sure to clean them thoroughly of all sand and then let them dry before you put them into storage. Or, if you have some pool floats that you want to store, again be sure to clean them, let them dry, and also deflate them so that they take up less storage space and they’re less likely to get damaged.

Christmas trees and decorations are another popular seasonal storage item. Before you store your Christmas tree, be sure to remove lights and ornaments. Whether or not you disassemble your tree, you should choose some sort of covering to protect it from collecting dust. You can use its original box or a storage bag made especially for Christmas trees. If you have fragile glass ornaments to store, it’s best to keep those at home, unless you have a climate-controlled unit, as the extreme hot and cold can cause them to crack, break, or get damaged.

If you’re looking for the perfect place to store your seasonal items in the Greenville, NC area, be sure to give us a call at Stow and Go Storage today.

With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

If you live in NC, you know that the great yellow blanket has descended over most of the state. Every year, we are bombarded with pollen, and if you suffer from seasonal allergies, you know what a pain this part of spring can be. However, there are steps you can take to try to keep both your home and your storage unit as pollen free as possible.

If you plan to visit your storage unit during the spring, only open and close the doors to exit and enter. Before you enter your unit, be sure to wipe off your shoes thoroughly or remove them altogether. If you’re bringing in new boxes, dust them off with a clean rag once you enter your storage unit. Dusting and sweeping inside your storage unit can also help to keep the pollen at bay.

If you’re coming home with boxes from your storage unit, you’ll want to follow the same steps: wipe your feet and/or remove your shoes, and then clean off the boxes with a clean rag. It’s also a good idea to take a shower and change your clothes when coming home after being outside during heavy pollen season.

Spring is here, and so is the pollen! But don’t let it force you indoors all season. Come and see us at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC for all of your mini-storage needs.

Storage During Winter | Mini-Storage Greenville, NC

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.

While Mr. Groundhog (aka Punxsutawney Phil) says that we will have 6 more weeks of winter, the NC weather this week is saying otherwise. However, if you’ve lived in NC for long, you know that the weather can change quickly from one day to the next. Regardless, we still have over a month left until the official start of spring, and there’s sure to be some cold days mixed in there and maybe even some winter weather.

If the ground is covered in snow or ice, it’s a good idea to avoid using your storage unit. Moving boxes and other items is hard enough when the ground is dry, but add in wintry weather, and you’re just asking for an accident. It’s best to wait until the ground has cleared to make a trip to your storage unit.

If you’re using a non-climate controlled unit, there are certain things you should not store in your unit, as they can be affected and damaged by extreme cold and heat. Some of these items include, anything with class, wooden furniture, electronics, and batteries. 

Your mini-storage unit is a great place to store seasonal items that you only need part of the year. For example, during the winter months, you can store your kiddie pools, lawn chairs, and pool floats. Then, when it gets warm again, you can trade these items out for sleds, snow shovels, and heavy jackets. This will free up space in your home.

For all of your storage needs this winter and year-round, give us a call at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC.
