Getting Rid of Your Shed This Summer?

Backyard shed with gray shingled roof and beige paint

Growing up, you likely had a backyard shed where your parents stored their garden tools, the lawnmower, and other things that wouldn’t fit in the house or the garage. When you bought your own house, it may have come with a shed on the property, or you may have built one not long after you moved in. Whatever the case may be, you’ve enjoyed having the shed for storage.

However, you may have come to the decision that you’d rather have the space in your yard than keep your shed. The building might be falling apart, and instead of repairing it, it makes more sense to tear it down. You can always put up a new one in a few years, but what about everything that’s stored in it? At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit for anything you need to keep safe.

Garden Tools

Your backyard shed is likely where you store your garden tools so that they’re easily accessible as you work in the yard during the spring and summer. Your rakes, shovels, and other tools need to be kept out of the rain, but if you’re tearing down the shed this year, they’ll need to be stored somewhere else. The garage is an option, but if you’re limited on space in there, a storage unit can be the next best option. Once the summer is over and you no longer need your garden tools, you can store them for the fall and winter. With our monthly leases, you can rent a space for the time you need, instead of paying for the entire year!

Boxes of Mementos

A lot of the boxes of mementos that we keep are often stored in closets throughout the house. However, as you need to make room for other things in those closets, you may move the boxes to the basement, the garage, or the backyard shed. These are likely boxes of high school photos, old clothes, and other things that you want to hang on to, but don’t necessarily need to keep in the house.

It’s important for these boxes to protected from water damage and other hazards, and a secure spot such as a storage unit can be the best way to keep them safe. You might be tearing down the shed because it’s starting to leak, and you’re worried about boxes getting wet. Until you put up a new one or figure out where to store these boxes, let EZ Storage® provide you with the ideal solutions.

Patio Furniture

Your shed may also be where you store your patio furniture during the fall and winter. You enjoy your table and chairs all summer long, but once that colder weather sets in during October and November, you want to put everything away and keep it from getting covered in snow. Without a shed, your only option for outdoor furniture is the garage, and that’s probably not the best scenario, since you also want to park your car in there.

With our seasonal storage options, you can enjoy your patio furniture during the summer and then store it for the few months you don’t need it. Without a shed, you’ll need a space that’s protected from weather and that you can move a big metal table and matching chairs into and out of without much hassle.
