Thankfully, Modern Storage has got you covered with storage options across the state that can help you optimize your gear and keep everything ready for your summer escapades!
Choosing the Right Unit for Your Needs:
Size and Accessibility: Assess the amount and size of your gear to determine the ideal storage unit size. Make sure the unit not only provides enough space to accommodate all your equipment comfortably but also allows for easy maneuverability.
Climate Control: Extreme temperature changes and humidity can damage sensitive equipment such as camping gear, electronics, or water sports gear. Opt for a storage unit with climate control features to maintain a stable environment and protect your belongings.
Security: At Modern Storage, we prioritize the safety of your gear. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with surveillance cameras that cover all corners of the property, ensuring your items are under constant watch. Additionally, our dedicated staff conducts routine walkthroughs to maintain a secure environment.
Inventory and Categorize Your Gear: Before moving your equipment into the storage unit, take the time to create an inventory and categorize your gear. This will streamline the packing and retrieval process. Consider grouping your items by activity type (e.g., camping, hiking, water sports) or by frequency of use.
Clean and Prepare Your Gear: Properly preparing your gear before storage is essential. Ensure that all items are thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt, moisture, and organic matter, which can attract pests and cause damage over time. Pay special attention to cleaning items like tents, sleeping bags, and camping cookware. Allow them to dry completely to prevent the growth of mold or mildew. For tools or equipment prone to rust or corrosion, wipe them down and apply appropriate lubrication.
Storing and Organizing: When storing your gear inside the unit, avoid overcrowding the space. Optimize accessibility by arranging items in a way that allows you to navigate the unit easily and retrieve specific items without having to unpack everything. Consider designating separate areas within the unit for long-term storage and quick access items.
With Modern Storage's reliable storage solutions, you can have peace of mind knowing that your gear is stored securely and ready for your summer adventures. So, get out there and make the most of the season while we take care of your storage needs!
