The Irish summer can be unpredictable, and we all want to make sure we get the most out of it. A self-storage unit might not be the first thing on your list of helpful summer accessories, but it should be.

From decluttering the home and garden and letting you enjoy those BBQs, or simply protecting your belongings from the heat (or rain) of the season, there are a host of ways that self-storage can help you relax and enjoy the summer.

Tips for Using Self-Storage to Make the Most of Summer

At U Store It, we want to help you maximise the benefits of self-storage. In this guide, we look at some of the many ways that a self-storage unit can assist in making this summer a memorable one!

1.    Decluttering Your Garden

For many people, the summer is all about spending long summer evenings relaxing in the garden. Having a few friends over and slapping some burgers on the BBQ is a ritual that is enjoyed across the country.

A self-storage unit is a great way to declutter your garden and get it looking at its very best for the summer. A more spacious and decluttered environment helps you create a more relaxing environment to enjoy those precious evenings.

It can also be used to store items like BBQs and patio furniture during the winter. This can help make sure that all your valuable equipment is in perfect condition year after year.

2.    Store Seasonal Clothing

It’s time to get the summer wardrobe out! Unfortunately, the wardrobes and cupboards are still crammed full of bulky winter gear. Self-storage allows you to safely store your outdoor and heavy winter clothing in a clean and dry environment.

Again, you can easily rotate your clothing storage on a seasonal basis. This can prolong the life of your clothing and help you keep your wardrobe organised and accessible.

3.    Safeguarding Valuables During Your Holidays

If you have valuable items that you’d prefer not to leave at home during your summer holiday, then self-storage is the perfect solution. Whether it’s jewellery, expensive electronics or sentimental items, self-storage gives you complete peace of mind to fully enjoy your well-earned break.

At U Store It, all our units are protected by multi-layered security systems that include CCTV, alarm systems, and computerised access systems to ensure that your valuables are secure during your holiday.

4.    Helping With Summer Renovations

The long days with plenty of natural light make summer the perfect time to carry out home renovations. By temporarily storing furniture, appliances, or personal belongings, you can create a clutter-free and more manageable environment for your renovation projects, allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

Of course, this also allows you to get the renovations completed quicker, allowing you to concentrate on relaxing in the garden for the rest of the summer!

5.    Organising Your Outdoor Gear

For many of us, summer is the season to head out into the great outdoors. Self-storage is the perfect all-year-round companion for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether it’s bikes, kayaks, golf clubs, or surfboards, storing them in a dedicated storage unit keeps them protected and easily accessible. Preventing them from cluttering your garage or living spaces.

This is perfect for keeping your living space decluttered during the summer months. But self-storage can be used to provide clean, dry, and secure storage for valuable outdoor gear during the off-season too.

6.    Temporary Storage Space for Students

Students can use self-storage over the summer break to store their belongings and study materials when they return home for the summer. Student storage allows them to store their belongings securely and conveniently without having to transport everything back and forth, making the summer months more enjoyable and stress-free.
