Self Storage – The Perfect Solution For All That Summer Gear

Fall is here, the days are getting a little shorter and pumpkin spice is everywhere! Since Montgomery County is located near beautiful Lake Conroe, that likely means your home and garage are stuffed with summer stuff. The kind of stuff you won’t need again until May. Things like life jackets, water skis, kayaks, wakeboards, canoes, paddleboards and more, not to mention 4th of July décor. Don’t give up your living space or let it keep your vehicles in the driveway instead of the garage where they are protected from the elements. Let Montgomery Self Storage be your solution for that summer stuff.



Start by assessing what type and size of unit you will need.

Take a quick inventory of what you want to store and whether it’s best kept in a climate controlled unit or a non climate-controlled unit. To see what types of items are recommended for both types of units, just visit this previous blog.

Once you know what type of unit you need, the next step is to decide on the size, based on the the items you plan to store. Our website can help with that, including helpful descriptions of the standard unit sizes and a rough idea of what will fit in each size. Check out the Locations & Units page and determine which location is most convenient for you. From the individual location pages, you can also click for more detailed descriptions of what fits in a 5×5 and a 10×20 unit.

Clean everything and let it dry and drain.

To prevent mold, never put anything in storage that is damp or dirty. Store kayaks on their sides and canoes upside down. Consider clear storage containers with lids for things like life jackets, bathing suits and beach towels. Water skis and wakeboards can be leaned in the corner or placed on racks or shelves. Cold temperatures can affect plastics, wood and fiberglass, so climate controlled storage may be the best choice for such items.
