What Will You Put in Storage?

Opened storage unit locker with text "what will you put in storage?"

It’s a question that many people ask themselves, especially once they’ve decided to rent a self-storage unit. They know they need one in order to declutter and organize their home and/or garage, but when it comes time to start packing things up, they’re not sure where to begin. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we have the space for anything you need to store, and as long as it’s safe to keep inside, we’ll keep it protected until you decide to pick it up, sell it, or throw it away!

Seasonal Clothes

dreamstime_8436433You may not think it, but clothes can often take up the most storage space in your home. You have a wardrobe for every season, but only so much dresser and closet space. When spring arrives, you’re ready to put away those bulky winter clothes, but sweaters and ski pants don’t fit as easily into a drawer that was previously holding shorts and tank tops. With a small storage unit, you can put your winter clothes into a wardrobe box and keep them safe until you need them again. Once cold weather arrives, you can swap the winter boxes for the spring and summer boxes, and have the appropriate apparel in your closets.

Patio Furniture

Another seasonal item, your patio furniture can take up quite a bit of space in your shed or garage when it’s not it use. You may not need your table, chairs, and umbrella from September until May, and keeping everything stored on your property can limit the space you have for other essential items. Renting a storage unit for a few months gives you the opportunity to keep the furniture out of the way and store other things in the garage, such as the car or motorcycle that you don’t want to leave in the driveway or under a vehicle cover.

You tune it up in the garage every spring, and you spend the summer cruising the Missouri roads and highways or heading across the Mississippi into Illinois. However, when it comes time to put the bike away for the season, you want to be sure that it’s protected from damage. A small storage unit can be the ideal option, and if there’s a rare weekend in November or February when it’s warm enough to ride, you can stop by, pick up your bike, and hit the road.

Business Supplies

Perhaps you’re not looking for seasonal storage for clothes, furniture, or a motorcycle. What you really need is year-round storage for business supplies and materials that are essential to your new startup company. You might be working on inventing a new product, or you might be selling crafts and gifts out of your home. Whatever it is you’re doing, if you have physical goods that you use on a regular basis, renting a storage unit can make more sense than trying to find room for everything in your house. We offer affordable options that can fit any new company’s budget, and we’ll gladly help you find the right unit for your business.

No matter what you need to put in storage, our team is here to make sure you get the best service at a fair price.
