If you’re like many people, you have accumulated a lot of sports equipment and camping gear. It may be disorganized and overflowing from your garage and closets. The worst part is, when you are ready to use it, you may not be able to find it. The solution is to use a Beaverton storage unit for all of your sports and activity paraphernalia. You will free your home of disorganization and you’ll have a convenient place where you can find your items whenever you need them. It is easy to store your sporting goods if you follow these tips.
Keep Like Items Together
Different seasons bring different sports. Try to organize your items together by the season they will be used. Set up a section of your storage space for each season. That way you will always know exactly where to look when you need an item quickly. When storing sports equipment, don’t stack things too high. You want to be able to grab an item and go without having to move and restack boxes.
Organize By Sport
The perfect way to organize your items is by sport. For example, keep all of your baseball-related sporting goods in one particular area of the unit. Get creative with storage containers so that you can keep things properly organized. For instance, use a plastic storage container or tub to toss all of your bats and balls when not in use .Mark the outside of the bin using permanent marker so you’ll know where everything goes. Bins or open boxes make great storage areas for small items that can just be tossed back into place.
It is helpful to maintain sections or rows in your storage unit. Even small units can be organized to accommodate movement. You want to be able to take a few steps into your unit so that you can get to any item you may need without having to move a lot of stuff. Mark your sections so that you and your family members will know where everything is located. When you have a large item such as a kayak or canoe, you can’t stack it. Be sure to create a special space where you can easily keep it on one side of your unit.
Choose the Right Storage Facility
Some sporting goods can be bulky and awkward to store. When you are ready to use the equipment you want to be able to just pull up, load up, and go. You certainly don’t want to be bogged down by having to park, enter, and drag your items through hallways and down elevators to get them to your vehicle.
