Cleaning Out Your Garage

Garage full of Boxes and objects with the EZ Storage logo

Now that spring is here, you might be spending more time in the garage working on that classic car or building things in your workshop. It’s important to have a clean and safe workspace, and if your garage has been overtaken by extra boxes, bikes, and other random items, now is a great time to go through things and decide what you want to keep, what you want to toss, and what you want to store. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can keep those extra items safe for as long as you need!

Reclaiming Your Parking Spot

dreamstime_xxl_13895504The garage’s primary purpose is of course a place to park your car, truck, and other vehicles. If you can’t even pull into the garage because of the amount of stuff blocking the way, now might be the perfect time to sort through those boxes and tubs. You may have seasonal decorations, lawn furniture, and other items that could be stored elsewhere, and at EZ Storage®, our monthly lease options make it easy to store things seasonally. That way, when you need your patio table and chairs, you can retrieve them from storage for the spring and summer while your Christmas decorations sit safely in your unit.

Creating a Workshop

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to have a workshop in your garage, and now that you have the bench and the tools, all you need to do is create a dedicated space where you can set up everything. If boxes of heirlooms and antiques are in the way, you may be able to store them in the crawlspace above the garage, but if you’d rather put them somewhere where you know they’ll be protected from damage, a storage space can be the perfect alternative.

Once you’ve decided what you want to keep, what can be donated or thrown away, and what you want to store, it’s important to organize the items left in your garage. Placing hooks on the wall can help you hang your bicycles when you’re not using them, and adding shelving units can help you keep those small boxes off the ground. If you have lots of tools, a chest or pegboard can help you keep everything organized and out of the way. That way, you’ll have room to park your car, work on projects, and still feel like you can safely walk around the garage.

If the first project on your list this spring is cleaning out your garage, let EZ Storage® help make the process easier. We have several Detroit-area locations, and you can access your storage unit on any day of the week. You might have a sale to get rid of those unwanted items, but whatever you want to store, we can keep it safe for as long as you need. Your garage can once again be what you need it to be, instead of overflow storage for what doesn’t fit in the house.
