How to Prepare for a Winter Move Using Self Storage

Admin | Jan 27, 2020

Moving in the winter is both popular and a hassle, but with these winter moving tips, self-storage will be a breeze! Whether you’re switching households and need storage units for a couple of weeks or you just need a place to keep your boat or RV, Uncle John’s Storage has you covered. Winter is the time to plan for moisture and cold temperatures, so just follow these three easy tips and your move will be seamless!

Vehicle Storage Do’s and Dont’s

For RVs, boats, cars, and ATVs, it’s important to check all of your fluids (gas, oil, etc) and make sure that they are full so you don’t damage your inner fuel systems. Check for any leaks and we highly recommend adding a stabilizer. Don’t forget to disconnect or remove any batteries, they do better at room temperature. Also, large vehicles often develop flat tires in winter, so remove them to prevent this. Also, clean the interior and exterior of your vehicle before covering it for the season!

Keeping Storage Units Dry

Washington is notorious for rain, fog, mist, and even snow, so keeping your self-storage unit dry is a top priority. At Uncle John’s Storage, we recommend keeping around some towels or old sheets to cover, wrap, and dry items as needed. Otherwise, mold or other decay could occur.
