Fall officially starts tomorrow, and with the arrival of a new season, you might be thinking about what you need to do to get ready for the next few months of cooler weather, house guests, and more. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find a self-storage unit for anything you want or need to move out of the house for the fall and winter months. We have six convenient locations across the greater metro area, making it easy to find a facility near you.

Rearranging Furniture

As you’re preparing your house for the fall and winter, you might need to rearrange some furniture in order to make rooms more comfortable, since you’ll be spending more time inside. If you’re going to have people over to watch the game this fall, or you’re going to host family and friends for the holidays, it can be beneficial to rearrange the living room or change the layout of the guest room for the utmost comfort.

While you’re rethinking each room’s layout, you might decide that you want to upgrade your furniture, or that you have a few pieces for which you no longer have the space. If so, our team can help you find the right storage solution for your old furniture or for any couches and chairs you want to move out of the house.

Rotating Seasonal Clothes

The arrival of fall also means the arrival of colder, shorter days. You may already be looking for your sweaters and jackets to wear on those chilly mornings and cool evenings. Rotating your seasonal clothes into and out of your closet can be a great way to get ready for fall and winter, as you’ll make space for the apparel you need and put away the clothing you don’t.

If your closets have limited storage space and you can’t keep your warm-weather attire in them and also have enough room for fall and winter clothing, why not put your summer clothes into sturdy plastic bins and store them for a few months? You can move these bins into your self-storage unit and not have to worry about them until spring!

Having the Furnace Checked

Before the year gets too much older, it’s a good idea to have your furnace checked to ensure that it’s working properly. You’ll want to make sure there’s a clear path to your heating system, whether it’s in the basement or a utility room, so that the HVAC technician can inspect everything thoroughly. If you have boxes or tubs stored near your furnace, it’s best to move them to another location in the house, since they can pose a hazard if stored too close to your heat source.

For anything that you want to move out of the house and into storage, we can help you find the right solution. Even if you rent our smallest storage space for a few months, it can give you peace of mind that your belongings are safe and that you don’t have to resort to storing them in your basement or utility room any longer.
