Taking the Winter Off From Touring?
There are countless people out there who dream of being in a band and touring the country, but in reality, only a handful ever actually do it. If you’re one of those who pursued your dream, formed a band, and has played all across the US, then you’re likely looking forward to starting each new tour. However, you may also like when you can come back home, relax for a bit, and enjoy time with friends and family. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit for your band equipment.
Safety and Security
When you set out on each tour, you likely have a trailer or van that carries all of your gear. Unless you’ve made it big as a band, you’re driving yourself across the country, pulling a trailer that has your guitars, amps, drums, and more. You’ve hopefully invested in a strong, secure trailer that will deter vandals and thieves while you’re on the road, since the last thing you want is to come out and see that your gear is gone. The same is true when it comes to storing your gear when you’re home. Instead of leaving the trailer parked on the street or in the driveway, full of expensive equipment, you can unload everything into a secure storage unit. This way, you’ll know your gear is safe, and that will be there when you need it once again.
Guitars and amps are made of wood, metal, and sensitive electronics. Cold and moisture can be very detrimental to these items, which is why it’s a good idea to choose a climate-controlled storage unit for your gear. Keeping everything at the proper temperature will help the instruments maintain their integrity, and even though you will have to tune and check your equipment before your next show, you’ll have the peace of mind that your guitar isn’t sitting in a cold, damp space.
If you’re taking the winter off from touring, then you may only need storage from November to March. At EZ Storage®, we offer month-to-month leases on all of our units, so you can rent for the season and then pick everything up before you leave for your next tour. If you’re playing a couple of local gigs over the winter, you can access your unit on any day of the week, making it easy to pick up your gear, play the show, and bring everything back on your schedule.
Touring the country as a band is a dream that many people have, and if you’ve turned that dream into a reality, then let us help protect your valuable equipment. You won’t have to leave everything in a trailer, and you won’t have to try to find room for your gear in your house or apartment. We have three locations in the greater Pittsburgh area, and each one can provide the right storage options for you. Visit one today to find the unit that meets your needs.
We look forward to meeting you!
