Top Summertime Self Storage Tips

It’s the time of the year where we are getting closer to the dog days. Along with this are trips to the beach, backyard barbecues, and sipping cool lemonade. But with the new normal today, it’s also important to consider having health and safety precautions especially when you’re out and about in public. 

For many of us who choose to stay indoors to beat the summer heat, it’s the perfect opportunity to declutter your space to make way for the new season. It’s time to ditch any remaining stuff you left out from spring cleaning,  and prepare your home for the summer months with these tips from our storage experts at The Box!

Think- Climate Control

Before placing your belongings into a storage unit for the summer, it is crucial that you consider temperature-controlled units. These are perfect this season to ensure that your possessions are kept at an optimal temperature. This guarantees their quality is kept in the best way possible and its condition remains the same throughout the duration of storage.

There are plenty of items that could benefit from a climate-controlled storage unit-including antique furniture, musical instruments, fine art, and collectibles ( vinyl records and books).  

Consider The Ease Of Access

In a country such as the UAE, temperatures could go as high as 43o C and people avoid going out ever so often especially under the beating heat of the sun. Ideally, it would be convenient to access a storage space at the owner’s convenience. 24/7 storage facilities provide the ease of access needed for anyone with busy lifestyles. These 24/7 storage units are secured and monitored at all times. This will ensure that your belongings are protected and taken care of. 

Take Scalability Into Account 

Whenever you plan on having more items to be stored in your current self storage unit, scalability is key. You’ll never go short of storage when you know you can opt for bigger storage without having to go through several difficult processes. Depending on your needs, you can choose different storage unit sizes without having to stay committed to it for a long time with flexible payment options. 

In Putting Away Your Seasonal Items

This is also a great time to spruce up your space and make it summer-ready. You may have some seasonal items and clothes left at home during your spring cleaning. Check every nook and cranny inside your rooms, wardrobes and drawers for any winter or holiday items left. It’s also worth considering to keep heavy and thick drapery and let out your thin and light curtains for an airy and summer-friendly space.
