While autumn does arrive late in Southern California, the summer of 2015 is fading and will soon be a memory. It won’t be long before you’ll be packing away your jet ski and camping gear, and breaking out the skis and snowboards. Self storage is an excellent way to keep your home, yard, and garage clutter-free while keeping your seasonal recreation equipment safe until you need it again.
At STORBOX Self Storage in Pasadena, we have eight differently sized storage spaces to meet your particular needs. They range from 5 ft. by 4 ft., to 10 ft. by 35ft. We also offer 25 different sizes of climate controlled wine storage units. As the seasons begin to change, check out our facilities and find a unit that fits your needs.
Storing camping gear
When packing away gear like tents and sleeping bags for the winter, it’s a good idea to make sure the items are clean and dry. You don’t want mold or mildew to surprise you next spring. We also suggest that you put mothballs or dryer sheets in with fabrics to prevent any stowaway critters from your last trip from feasting on your gear. For lanterns and stoves that use fuel, it’s a good idea to make sure that their tanks are completely empty when you pack them away.
Storing an ATV, motorcycle, or personal water craft
The most important thing to do when storing a mechanical item is to consult your owner’s manual. Manufacturers will give specific guidelines for storing the equipment. Many manuals suggest putting a stabilizer in the gas tank to keep the fuel from going bad.
