How to Properly Store your Winter Gear

 In Home Maintenance

As this winter finally comes to a close you will need to figure out what you are going to do with all of your winter gear and accessories. Instead of having it take up room in your garage for a few months, you should consider renting a storage unit at All American Self Storage in San Mateo. Our facility can provide you with the perfect storage unit for your needs. Listed below are some helpful tips to get you started on the storing process of your winter gear.


Ski and Snowboard Racks

Racks made specifically to hold your skis and snowboards are a must when it comes to storing yours for a few months at a time. These can be a little pricy but keep the quality and the integrity of your snow board or skis. Find a rack that allows you to store multiple sets of skis or snowboards. This will allow for more storage space in your unit as well.


Storage Bins

For you smaller winter accessories such as hats, gloves, mittens, and goggles you will want to get a plastic bin with an air tight lid. This will keep all of your winter gear in one spot so it won’t get lost in your unit. Make sure you label your storage bin and keep it in a space that is easy to get to for when next winter season rolls around.


Shelving Solutions

Whether you ski, skate or snowmobile, custom shelves may also help keep winter sports gear wrangled in one place. Shelves can be used to keep bins and other accessories. Put your heavier items on the bottom shelves and the lighter accessories towards the top for more stability. Putting shelving in your storage unit is a great way to keep your items safe and organized.


Now that winter is over you can start the transition from winter to summer fun while keeping your items out of the way at a storage unit at All American Self Storage in San Mateo.
