Make no mistake about it. This winter has been brutal! Every single person I have spoken to about this winter has complained about it. Even those that enjoy it.
But in a land where snow and ice are prevalent from December to the end of March, it goes without saying that doing some sort of winter sport is a fun way of making a slow winter go faster.
Now, with the advent of the warmer weather of springtime just around the corner, we are faced with having to find a place to store all that equipment.
How Should You Prep Your Winter Sports Equipment For Storage?
Your winter sports equipment probably took a beating over the last few months. So before you put things away for the season, take some time to clean and do repairs. Dirt and debris can cause staining and damage if not removed promptly. It can also leave odors that are hard to get rid of. If you have a broken strap on a ski, or a missing lace on your skates, now is the best time to replace or repair it. If any equipment is damaged beyond repair, it is time to part with it. But don’t forget to replace it. If you remember to do this, when winter rolls around again this year you’ll be ready to go.
What’s A Good Place To Store My Winter Sports Gear?
If you have a single pair of skis, you can probably put them into the corner of the garage or the basement. But like most winter sports enthusiasts, you probably have a lot more than that.
Ski boots, poles, jackets, hats, mitts, hockey equipment, curling brooms, snowboards, snowshoes. You might even have a snowmobile you need to store for the summer.
This is where a self storage unit is a great option for storing any off-season sports equipment. Instead of being stacked up in the garage or crammed in the back of a closet, your equipment will be protected and ready for next winter when you need it. Best of all, it won’t be in your way.
Come on over to Planet Storage and we’ll help you find a suitably sized unit for all your winter stuff.
See you soon 🙂
