Placing Off Season Sports Gear In Storage

Hi there, my name is Becky Strichertz. Welcome to my website about placing off season sports gear in storage. When I was playing sports through college, I placed myself on every team I could to learn all about the sports world. I hoped to develop a strong reputation as a sports star at my school. Not long after my first year, my apartment was filled to the brim with gear. I decided to place the items in storage during the off season. I will explore this topic in great detail on my site. I invite you to tag along to learn about this fun subject.

3 Things To Look For In A Storage Facility

Storage facilities aren't all the same. Consider what you're going to put in your storage unit first and then find a facility that's a good match. Here are some features you may want to think about when you're looking for a good place to store your belongings:

Climate Control

Climate control isn't always necessary, so if you don't need it, you can save money by choosing a standard storage unit that doesn't have it. However, if you plan to store delicate items for an extended period of time, such as important documents or electronics, then it is worth it to find a unit that has controlled temperature and humidity. The unit may cost extra, but without climate control, some of your belongings may be ruined and that would cost even more. Some items, such as furs, need to be stored in precise temperature ranges to prevent damage and they need specialized facilities that offer cold storage.

Hours Of Access

You may not need a facility that is open 24 hours a day, but you want one that accommodates your hours if you have long work days. Unless you're storing furniture or other belongings you won't need to access until the day you move it out, you want a facility that has evening and weekend hours so you can get things out of storage when you need them. If you're storing equipment for work or things like survival supplies, you may prefer a facility that allows you access 24 hours a day so you can get what you need if an emergency arises in the middle of the night.

Security Measures

Safety is extremely important when choosing a storage facility. If you plan to store valuables, you may want a place with indoor storage units that are protected from access by intruders. An outdoor unit is much more convenient for you, so if you choose one of these self-storage units, look for a facility that has ample lighting, video surveillance, security fencing, and gated entry. You'll probably be responsible for buying your own lock, so choose one that can't be forced open or cut with bolt cutters. In addition to protection from theft, you want your belongings to be safe from fire, flood, and insects, so look for signs of proper care and maintenance of the facility as well.

Although facilities differ on the features they offer, they are alike when it comes to the things you are not allowed to store on the premises. If you do have unusual items such as survival food, collectible weapons, valuables, antiques, or equipment with motors, be sure to talk the manager first to make sure they'll be accepted and safe in the facility.
