There are only two weeks left in August, and if you’re a professional house painter, then your busy season is likely winding down for the year. The college students who worked for you during the summer are heading back to school, and you’ve finished the big exterior projects for the year. If you’re looking for storage options for your house painting supplies, then visit EZ Storage® in Philadelphia today. With one of our self-storage units, you can keep your ladders, scaffolding, and everything else safe for the fall and winter.

Throwing Out Old Equipment

dreamstime_xxl_24854312If you have a ladder or a roller extension that simply isn’t working like it should any more, then now is a great time to throw out that old equipment and buy some new things. You might be thinking about waiting until spring to buy new painting supplies, but you can often find the best prices in the fall on items that you need for your business. You can buy the new gear and keep it in your storage space until you’re ready to start that first job next year.

Taking Stock of Your Supplies

At the end of each summer, you spend a couple of days taking stock of your supplies to see what you’ll need come next spring. Once you’ve thrown out or sold those old pieces that have outlived their usefulness, you can comb through the remaining items to see what is in good shape, what needs to be repaired, and what needs to join the others on the trash pile.

With a storage unit, you can separate everything into categories, such as brushes and trays, ladders and stools, and more. You can put the larger items in the back of the space, and keep the smaller items stacked towards the front. Depending on the size of unit that you rent, you can store your scaffolding beams and supports along the wall and keep them safe from the rain and snow.

Renting Storage Seasonally

dreamstime_xxl_60396952You only need a storage space for the fall and winter seasons, and with EZ Storage®, you only have to pay for the time you need. With month-to-month leases on all of our units, you won’t have to worry about being locked into a long-term contract that makes you pay for months where you don’t need to store anything. Once April or May comes around, and you’re busy painting again, you can take everything out and then rent again once your busy season ends!

If you’re a professional house painter in the greater Philadelphia area, then now is a great time to find a self-storage unit for your materials and supplies.
