Harrisburg NC summer storage

You can fit almost all of your winter gear into mini storage units believe it or not. Snowmobile not included, unfortunately. However, ski’s children’s sleighs and all the thick sweaters, waterproofs and insulated jackets can sit snuggly until later in the year.

The first step is to seek out some garage storage shelves that will fit along two walls of your Harrisburg NC mini storage unit. All the walls could hold shelves, but vertical space is ideal for organizing sets of skis and other long items.

Using the best boxes for storage

Even though cardboard is cheap, it is advisable to choose plastic for packing all your things away. If there is any sign of damp, then these boxes will not be much use and will split quite easily. Use sizes that fit the storage shelves in your local mini storage units, and you can see what you have, and most important where is.

Holiday decorations, gloves, snow boots, coats, and sweaters can all be folded and packed away, but make sure air can get inside to ventilate the inside of the boxes. Any sign of moisture and damp can ruin clothes almost overnight.

If you can get a mini storage unit, that is all the better. They might cost a little more, but if there is any rain, it can turn the air damp. This is one sure way of fabrics and any papers to get damaged. 

One thing to be sure of is the children’s pockets are free from candy or crumbs. One whiff of that and rodents and insect can be making their way into your self storage unit for a feast. Wash and dry everything thoroughly and forget mothballs. Clothes smell, and they don’t really work. Lavender balls are a much better option because they do work and clothes smell great the next time you pull them from your local Harrisburg storage unit.
