Coming Back Home After Spending the Winter Elsewhere

Women folding clothes on her bed and text "Coming back home after spending the winter elsewhere"

We’ve written before about “snowbirds” and how they plan their winter vacations to warmer climates so that they can escape the cold and snow of St. Louis. If you’re one who does this, then you might look forward to coming home after a few months away, even if that’s not until the weather warms up, which might not be until March or April in central Missouri.

At EZ Storage®, we can help you find the ideal self-storage unit for anything that you want to store when you come home, or anything you find is taking up more space than you remember. If you have a vehicle that you want to store, or there are items that you won’t need until next winter, then stop by one of our storage centers in the greater metro area today!

Unloading Excess Items

dreamstime_xxl_94938631You may have packed certain outdoor gear or clothing into your suitcases or car before you left, knowing that you would need them where you were going. You might have hiking or camping gear that came in handy during the winter, but now you want to put everything away until your next trip. If you’ve already rented a storage unit, then you can stop by before you get home, unload all of your excess items, and have less to put away once you arrive at the house. With convenient hours and drive-up or drive-through access, you can easily put things into storage and be on your way.

Cleaning Up the House

If you had a house sitter watching your property while you were gone, then hopefully everything is in pretty good order upon your return. They took care of the standard household chores such as vacuuming, washing the dishes, and doing the laundry. However, they may not have organized the garage or made sure your closets were in order. If you’re making a to-do list that you want to tackle when you get home, then you might be looking at some serious cleaning and organizing. If you have things that would be better off in storage, then we’re here to help you find the perfect space.


Making Room for New Things

Since you spent the holidays away from home, you might be bringing back gifts and other treasures that you picked up along the way. When you’re unloading everything, you might find that there’s not enough space, since your older possessions are taking up all the room. If you want to make room for newer things, then boxing up those older items and putting them in storage can be the way to go. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy your new gifts at home, and still access your older belongings when you want.

At EZ Storage®, we understand the desire to get away for a few months, especially when the weather turns cold. If you’re headed back to the St. Louis area in the next few weeks, and you’re considering renting a self-storage unit for a vehicle or some excess belongings, then stop by one of our locations today. Our staff members and resident managers will be more than happy to help you find the right unit, and they’ll gladly answer any questions you have.

We look forward to meeting you!
