Farewell to Summer Items.. For Now

Cooler weather, and soon cold weather, is upon us here in the panhandle. You probably have many items in your home and garage that you won’t use again until we see warmer temperatures.

A storage unit is a great way to clear out the clutter and free up some space until the weather returns to the warm, sunny Florida we know and love.
If you have kayaks, golf clubs, or other outdoor equipment you won’t use much, if at all, keep it in a storage unit until needed again. Perhaps your children have toys for outdoors such as small, motorized cars that they won’t be able to use for a few months. Roller skates and skateboards may not be used much during winter and could be stored until spring.

You may also want to pack up summer clothes and store them. When storing clothes and shoes, put everything in large plastic zipper bags to keep moisture and bugs out.

The holidays are coming and bringing cooler weather. You’ll need extra space for holiday decorations, so store summer items you don’t need right now in a storage unit. When warm weather arrives, switch out summer stored items for winter and keep your home uncluttered.

Get Your Boat Ready for Storage

Winter is on its way, and the boating season is coming to an end. Now you need to store your boat until spring arrives, but there are several things you need to do to get it ready for storage
Your boat will be safe at Phelps Outdoor Storage in Niceville, but you should remove all personal items from the boat before leaving it. Be sure to remove your GPS and any expensive electronics you may have.

You’ve probably put in a lot of hours on the water, but when you load your boat on the trailer one last time, you can’t just put it in storage as is. You have some work to do first.
You need to drain each system to avoid the risk of corrosion on any metal parts. Drain the bilge, empty onboard water tanks and drain water from pipes. Draining the system also helps avoid anything freezing when it does get cold.

Your watercraft needs a thorough cleaning before it goes into storage. Get the grime off with an approved boat cleaner. Remove any algae or barnacles that may have collected on the hull. Clean the upholstery and make sure everything dries out, both outside and inside cabinets. The last thing you want is to find mold or mildew next season. A good coat of wax will protect the exterior until next season.

Fill your gas tank and add a fuel stabilizer to help keep the engine in top shape. Stabilizer will keep the gas from going bad while the boat sets in storage. Be sure to change the oil too, as well as oiling all the moving parts. Even cabinet latches need attention so they don’t rust.
If you have a cover, put it on, Now, after all that work, your boat is ready for storage, and you can rest easy because it will be ready to get on the water when winter ends.

What to Store in Indoor and Outdoor Storage Units

If you need to free up garage space or room and closet space inside your home, there are two types of storage units you can consider using. Outdoor storage units fit many things from your garage, while indoor climate-controlled spaces are better for things you wouldn’t keep in your garage.
Outdoor storage units are great because you have easy outdoor access and are affordable. They also come in different sizes, perfect for many items currently stored in your garage, including:

  • Lawnmowers
  • Gardening equipment
  • Kayaks, paddleboards or canoes
  • Bicycles
  • Camping equipment

The list is not all inclusive. Basically, anything you would keep in your garage would be fine in outdoor storage. Bear in mind that units are typically made of metal and can get very hot in Florida’s blazing sun. The interior can also be very humid when it rains.

Indoor, climate-controlled units are reserved for things that need to be protected from the heat and elements. Some items you wouldn’t want to see damaged by storing in an outside space include:

  • Family photos
  • Artwork
  • Electronics
  • Furniture, especially if it’s upholstered
  • Clothing
  • Collections of all types, including stamps, photos, records, books, and more.

An indoor, climate-controlled space will keep mold, mildew, rust and rodents away from your more sensitive items.

When you start to clean out the garage, the decision of what to store where is yours, and this list can serve as your guide. If you have questions, we’re here to help.
