Advantages to Having a Summer Storage Unit

With summer almost here, it’s time to start those preparations so you can make the best out of your time. Using a storage unit for the summer can be a good way for you to prepare for summertime and everything that comes with it. These rentals are becoming a popular thing for homeowners to do. So we are going to take you through each advantage of renting a storage unit for the summertime.

Clear out your Garage

With the warm weather on the way, and summer is the best time to sort out your garage. A garage is always filled with all sorts of different things. All you need to do is figure out all the things you need to keep and the things you still want to keep but may not need access to on a regular basis.

For example, being in Canada, most of us use winter tires during the winter months. Instead of storing them at home in the garage, use a storage unit, so you know they are in a safe place until you need them again when the snow comes back.

Winter Gear & Clothes

Everyone has winter gear or clothes that they don’t use in the summertime. These can be things like sports equipment (hockey sticks, skates, snowboards, skis, etc.), Sleds, and all sorts of winter clothes. They can take up so much space in the house or the garage, especially if you have a large family. This room could be used to store all your summer gear.

Friend and Family Visits

Summertime tends to be filled with visits from family and friends, or maybe you even have children coming home on their college break. By using a summer storage unit, you can make extra room by putting things into storage that you would typically be storing at home. So you can make room and host all the family and friends that plan to visit.

College Students

Do you have kids that are in college? It can be frustrating having to bring back all of their belongings (bedding, decor, electronics, school supplies, furniture, etc.) every summer than bringing them back once summer is over. So why not rent a storage unit? Make it easier on yourself. Renting a summer storage unit means you can store all their belongings right by their college until they go back to school.


Maybe this summer, you are going on vacation and are worried about your valuables being at risk for theft while you are away. Using a storage unit to protect your belongings gives you the security knowing that they will be safe, and you can get back to enjoying your vacation.
Heated Self Storage

Sometimes you might be storing furniture or other items in your house because you’re worried that they might get ruined if you put them into storage. But if you don’t need those items all year round or plan to store those items beyond the summer months, choosing a heated storage unit is actually one of the best guarantees that everything in your storage unit will come out precisely the way you put it in.

Now you know all the advantages that come with renting a unit for the summertime. If you have any questions about storage rentals, you can contact Alliston Self Storage, and we will be happy to help.
