Rotating Your Storage This Fall

Whenever a new season approaches, you think about what you need to get out of storage and what you need to put away. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we’re here to help you find the perfect self-storage unit, and as fall gets closer, you might be considering what summer things you need to store and what fall and winter items you need to access. In this post, we’ll take a look at how you can rotate your storage items this fall so that you can get to what you need when you need it!

Holiday Decorations

Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but as the weather turns cooler and fall officially begins, you might begin to think about the upcoming holidays. Perhaps you decorate with fall colors and accents throughout your home, or maybe you go all out for Halloween. Whatever the case may be, it can be good to get your holiday decorations out of storage now, rather than waiting until October. If you have boxes and totes of summer gear that need to be stored, then you can get your holiday bins out of storage and put the summer items in their place. Rotating things like this can help you make the most of your storage unit, and you’ll have everything you need once the holidays arrive. The last thing you want is to be searching for lights and decorations at the last minute!

Winter Sports Gear

If you’re a year-round sports enthusiast, then you likely have gear for every season. Now that summer is coming to an end, you’re going to be putting away that warm-weather gear and getting out the equipment that you’ll use in the snow and the cold. Some things might be stored in your garage, such as skis or snowboards, but if you have things in a storage unit, retrieving them now can help you prepare for that first winter trip to Mt. Holly or Mt. Brighton.

You’re also going to need winter coats, hats, and gloves, and as you’re putting away those summer shirts and jackets, you can rotate the plastic bins in your storage space. Take one bin out, put another one in, and keep everything safe until you need it again!

Upgrading Your Storage

As you’re rotating boxes and tubs in and out of storage, you might decide that you need a bit more space than you currently have. Perhaps you’re storing some larger items that you bought this summer, such as a new bike or a new kayak, and your smaller storage unit will no longer suffice. At EZ Storage®, we can help you upgrade to a larger space so that you have room for everything. On the other hand, if you’ve gotten rid of some things this summer and don’t need as much space, then we can help you find a smaller unit for the winter months. The same monthly lease terms apply to every space that we offer, so you won’t have to worry about any long-term contract.
