As the ski season draws to a close, it’s time to start thinking about storing your ski equipment until next winter. Ski equipment can take up a lot of space in your home, and leaving it out in the open can cause damage or wear and tear and can also cause potential hazards in the home.
Self-storage units are a great option for storing ski equipment, they provide a secure and controlled environment that can protect your equipment from the elements, theft, and other damage while creating more space in your home.
In this post, we’ll cover how to store ski equipment in a storage unit, including how big a unit you will need and some of the benefits of using a storage unit to store ski equipment.
The size of the storage unit you will need depends on the amount and type of ski equipment you have. Here are some general guidelines for estimating the size of the storage unit you will need:
Skis can be stored standing up, so you will need a unit that is at least as tall as your longest pair of skis. A 10 Sq Ft room is usually sufficient for a single pair of skis, while a 15 Sq Ft unit can hold multiple pairs.
Snowboards can also be stored standing up, so you will need a unit that is at least as tall as your longest snowboard. Once again a storage unit of around 15 Sq Ft should have enough room to store a few snowboards.
Ski boots can be stored in a box or on a shelf. They don’t take up too much room so depending on the other equipment you need to store will depend on the amount of space that you need. Generally, a few boards/skis and boots will fit in a 15 Sq Ft storage room.
Ski poles can be stored standing up or lying down. These can also fit in the same room mentioned above.
Lastly, you need to consider the clothing that you will be stored with your equipment. If you have heavy coats and trousers these are going to take up more room.
On average one of our 15 Sq Ft Rooms will be enough to store your ski equipment. But if that doesn’t do the trick and it’s a little tight a 25 Sq Ft storage unit should be more than enough to store your famiies ski equipment.
Depending on how much equipment you need to store along with how many family members have skis, poles, clothing, boots and anything else you may take skiing will depend on how much storage space you will need.
Even if you have a garage or shed, most people don’t want to store their ski equipment in their home as it takes up too much room, but there are other benefits of storing your ski equipment in a self storage unit.
Storing your ski equipment in a self-storage unit provides protection from the elements. If you store your equipment in your garage or shed, it is exposed to temperature fluctuations, moisture, and other weather elements that can cause damage. A self-storage unit can protect your equipment from these elements, helping to extend its life and maintain its condition.
Another benefit of storing your ski equipment in a self-storage unit is increased security. Storage facilities often have advanced security measures, such as 24-hour video surveillance, electronic gates, and on-site security guards. This can help deter thieves and vandals from targeting your equipment, providing you with peace of mind.
Storing your ski equipment in a self-storage unit can free up valuable space in your home. This is particularly useful if you have limited space in your garage or basement, or if you need more space to store other items.
Storing your ski equipment in a self-storage unit can be cost-effective, particularly if you compare it to the cost of repairing or replacing your equipment if it’s damaged or stolen. In addition, many storage facilities offer flexible rental options, so you can choose the size and duration of your rental based on your needs and budget.
