Every homeowner eventually runs into the same problem—they don’t have enough room to store all their stuff. If that’s you, it’s time to get creative and figure out what’s most important to secure in your storage container so you can free up space.
Bikes and sporting gear: If you don’t have a lot of space in your house, there is no need to clear out your garage or storage shed. Bikes, sporting gear, lawnmowers, and other equipment can be securely stored in a storage container and still be as accessible as if it were at home.
Seasonal decor: If you have holiday decorations that are only used once a year, you probably don’t need them cluttering up your home the rest of the year. Holiday decor can often be boxed up and placed into a storage container without needing to worry about damaging it.
Clothing: Clothing is one of those things that can quickly get out of hand and wind up taking up more space than anything else in your house. If you’re planning on moving into a smaller space, or if you’re attempting to clear out as much clutter as possible, why not start with the biggest culprit? Box up seasonal clothing and store it away until it’s needed again.
Books: Books are heavy and take up a lot of space, especially if you have a lot of them. To save space, consider putting books into storage containers where they can be easily retrieved when you want to read them later.
Artwork: Many people have collectible artwork that they may be hanging on their wall or that is still within their original packaging. At times, this artwork can’t be displayed due to lack of space or because it doesn’t match the current decor of your home. A storage container is the perfect place to store this item as well as ensure that they are safe from damage for future display purposes.
Antique cars: If you have a collection of antique cars, or if you are a classic auto dealer, your vehicles could be a good fit for storage containers. These vehicles need to be kept in a safe environment and out of the elements. Storage containers are considered the best option for long-term storage of classic cars, as they can be transported to various locations and remain protected.
Recreational vehicles: Storing motorbikes, scooters, snowmobiles, and other recreational vehicles in a storage container not only keeps them safe from theft, vandalism, or damage by the elements—it also frees up space in your garage, so you don’t have to crowd out your daily drive.
Garden tools: Outdoor gardening tools can be expensive, and they’re not something you want to lose or have stolen. Lawnmowers, weed eaters, rakes, shovels, garden hoses, and sprinklers are just a few examples of outdoor tools that are best stored in a storage container.
Appliances: Refrigerators, washers and dryers, air conditioners, and stoves use valuable space in your home. If you don’t want to get rid of them entirely but don’t want them cluttering up your home, a storage container is an ideal storage solution for appliances.
Furniture: Securing your furniture in a storage container is the perfect way to save space and keep your belongings in great condition. If there’s no need for it now, then store it.
Documents and paperwork: All your important documents must be secured. This includes birth certificates, passports, drivers’ licenses, business documents, and so on. They should be packed and stored away safely in the storage container to ensure they are not damaged or destroyed.
Camping Gear: A storage container is a great place to store all that bulky camping gear that you only use at certain times of the year, and which otherwise takes up valuable space in your garage. Camping chairs, tables, lanterns, and cooking equipment can all be stored in a container for safekeeping until the next summer rolls around. It will also protect your gear from mold, mildew, and the weather.
Outdoor Furniture: If you live somewhere where winter weather lasts for months at a time (or if it’s really hot), keeping your patio set outside might not be the best idea. Consider storing it inside a storage container so that when spring rolls around again, everything will still be nice and clean without any rust stains!
The possibilities for your storage container are endless. Once it arrives, get to work customizing the interior to fit your needs.
