Pumpkin spice. Falling leaves. Large meals with family. The fall conjures up many inviting images and feelings. But did you know that autumn is also a great time to start using a portable storage container?
From needing a place to store gardening tools to not using pool supplies anymore, there are several reasons why people use storage containers during the fall months. Let’s take a look at five of them.
- Summer Clothing
It’s officially time to start thinking about storing those swim shorts, bikinis, tank tops and other warm-weather gear. You’re going to need extra space for coats, sweaters, long-sleeve shirts and other comfortable clothes needed during cold weather. Fortunately, this isn’t a huge task with a portable storage container. Simply have one delivered to your location, load it up with summer clothes and call to have it picked up once you’re done.
- Gardening Tools
The time for yard work is also thankfully coming to a close. That means you can put away gardening tools like mowers, trimmers, shovels and shears and replace them with rakes or blowers instead. You’re not going to need many of these tools until spring, so it only makes sense to free up some space (and keep your tools protected) while you’re not using them.
- Outdoor Furniture
Fall is a great time to sit outside with a cup of coffee as you watch the leaves turn or read a good book. But temperatures are going to drop quickly and you’re not going to want to even think about sitting on your porch for very long once comfortable turns to cold. More importantly, though, you want to keep your outdoor furniture protected from weather-related damage. Storing this furniture in a storage container will keep it safe and secure.
- Pool Supplies
With summer in the rear-view mirror, so is your pool and beach time. We already covered the need to store your swim clothes, but there are other supplies like floats, lounges, goggles and toys that you have to store somewhere until warm weather rolls around again.
- Other Household Items
Finally, there are other unique household items that you likely only use during the summer months. For example, you might not use a portable fan as much (or at all) during fall or winter. There also might be clutter your college student left behind when they went to school. Or, there are items related to special events (e.g. Fourth of July) that you don’t want taking up space. A portable storage container in the fall is a great solution for all of these.
