We have been lucky to enjoy such a warm fall this year and as a result, many cottage owners have had the opportunity to put off closing their cottage, enjoying a couple extra weekends of some well-deserved R&R.
But as the weather gets cooler and winter edges closer, it will soon be time to start packing up your cottage.
For many, that means spending a weekend or more cleaning the cottage, sorting out what can stay and what needs to be stored and making multiple trips back and forth to their home or storage unit. The process can often become tedious.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be.
With portable storage, you can get a storage unit delivered right to your property. You can then take your time filling it up with your belongings, saving you from multiple trips to and from your storage location. Once the unit is full, you can choose to leave it on your cottage property or have it taken away and stored at your local storage center.
Portable storage units are secure, weatherproof and ensure your belongings stay dry. They are also very versatile and are great for storing a number of personal items to ensure they stay safe from rodents, poor weather conditions, and possible break-ins.
Items that can be kept in your unit include
- Personal watercrafts, such as seadoos
- Small boats
- ATVs or dirt bikes
- Outdoor furniture
- Water toys
- Sporting equipment
- Emergency materials and equipment
- Empty gas cans
If you still use your cottage throughout the winter months, you can keep the unit on-site and use it to protect seasonal décor and winter equipment and gear, such as snow plows, skis, and snowmobiles, as well.
Come the summer months, you can choose to have the empty unit removed from your property until the following winter or you may keep it and store your winter gear during the summer months.
You can also use it to store personal belongings if you share your cottage or sublet it to renters throughout the year.
