The following are tips to prepare summer toys for winter storage:
- Wash and wax all vehicles to ensure that no damage, such as rusting or staining, is done to the paint or metal.
- Fill the gas tank and mix in a fuel stabilizer, which will prevent damage to the engine and fuel line. Having a full tank without extra airspace prevents moisture, which can cause rusting.
- Change the oil and oil filter as old oil can breakdown and cause damage.
- All metal pieces, such as chains or cables, should be lubricated with aerosol grease.
- Remove batteries and clean all connections.
- Cover your vehicles with quality covers or tarp.
In addition to storing summer vehicles in Milwaukee self storage units, also store other seasonal items that aren’t used during the winter, such as pool toys, lawn machines, gardening tools and sports equipment. Placing items in self storage makes living space less cluttered and more organized, and the items needed are much easier to access. Once winter is over, swap seasonal items. Winter belongings, such as skis and snowboards, shovels, snow blowers, holiday decorations and clothing, can then take the place of all spring and summer items in a self storage unit.
To secure storage for your belongings this winter, it’s a good idea to reserve a unit now. Milwaukee self storage units fill up quickly during the winter months, so by renting ahead of time, you can ensure that your vehicles and other items have a safe place to stay this winter. Armour Self Storage in Milwaukee has a state of the art, climate controlled facility with a high-tech security system and fireproof construction, so you don’t have to worry about anything happening to your belongings while away in storage.
