Tips for Swapping out your gear by Laing Self Storage!
Laing Self Storage knows you want to be ahead of the game when it comes to storing seasonal gear. You can’t be wasting valuable time on a powder day trying to dig through your storage unit to find your board! In order to be ready to go when adventure calls, we’ve put together a few tips on how to efficiently swap out your seasonal gear.
1. FIND THE PERFECT UNIT
Finding the perfect storage unit is the first step to make room for awesome. Depending on the season and how much gear you plan to store, the size and type of storage unit you need may vary. Winter warriors with snowmobiles, snowboards, and skis will need much more room than those simply looking to store seasonal holiday decorations. Luckily Laing Self Storage can handle any storage situation you throw our way, so give us a call and we’ll help you get ready for your next big adventure.
2. GROUP ITEMS BY SEASON
Grouping your seasonal items can go a long way toward saving you valuable weekend time. By separating your snow jackets, boots, and goggles from your kayaks, paddleboards, and camping gear, you’ll be able to get to the things you need quickly and have more time to get out there and make it happen.
3. LABEL EACH CONTAINER OR BOX
We all think that we have a picture-perfect memory when it comes to knowing where we put things last. But after a whole winter of shredding down mountains or an entire summer of searching for the perfect wave, these memories can get clouded by even better ones. That’s why you need to make sure you label each container and box while packing stuff away. This will help you get in, out, and on your way faster.
4. ROTATE YOUR STUFF
The last thing you want to do is climb over all of your gear to get to your skis when it’s a bluebird day up on the mountain. Once you’ve organized all your gear and labeled it, be sure to rearrange your items as the seasons change so that the ones you need the most are the quickest to get to. This will help you avoid those dreadful lift lines and ensure that you’re the first one getting your turns in.
5. PURGE AFTER EVERY SEASON
After a long winter of epic powder days or an endless summer at the beach, you’ll know which items you use the most, which ones you need to keep around just in case, and which ones you never touched. This is the perfect time to get rid of some gear you don’t use so that you can make room for new toys that will help you maximize your weekends.
6. KEEP IT CLEAN
All of these tips won’t help you effectively store your seasonal gear if you don’t keep it clean and organized. Whether your gear is outgrowing your previous storage unit or you simply need some more organization tips, Laing Self Storage
is here to help get you organized and back to doing what you love. Give us a call today and we’ll help you make room for awesome in your life.
