Self-storage is advantageous no matter what time of year. It allows us to make space during renovations and redecorations, store bulky and expensive items, and shield outdoor belongings from the elements. But is this more useful during the winter when the weather is harsher and protecting items becomes a necessity?
We’re helping to answer this by looking into whether winter is the best time of year to take advantage of self-storage. We’ll be exploring all the benefits of self-storage during the colder months and how Kangaroo Self Storage can help you store through winter.
In short, it depends on the items and where they’re stored when not in self-storage. If you have belongings, such as outdoor furniture, which require protection from the elements during the brutal British wintertime, then yes, their storage is more important than during summer.
Additionally, winter is often when home renovations take place, whether in time for Christmas or as a New Year’s resolution, and this is a perfect reason for using self-storage during the colder months.
On the contrary, people need self-storage all year round, whether for storing surplus stock, protecting their vehicles, or keeping confidential documents, so you could argue that just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean storing becomes more important.
Ensuring you’ve prepared your home for winter before the cold weather hits is crucial. Here’s a checklist of maintenance to consider and how self-storage can assist:
Christmas is undoubtedly the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a period of chaos and clutter if you’re not prepared. With winter being a popular time for home renovations and improvements before the festive season, self-storage can be a lifesaver. Not only can you make room for your decorations, but you can also store your belongings in a secure, clean space while you make those much-needed changes in your home.
During the winter months, it’s typical to see a surge in interior design projects and renovations that aim to refresh and upgrade living spaces. From installing new flooring or repainting walls to upgrading kitchens or bathrooms, self-storage can provide the temporary solution you need to store your furniture and valuables securely. This way, you won’t have to worry about them getting damaged, and you can focus on your project with peace of mind.
Kangaroo Self Storage offers flexible, secure, and well-maintained storage units that cater to your varying needs during the hectic winter season. Whether it’s making room for a new home office setup, decluttering before the arrival of houseguests, or embarking on that major remodelling project, our self-storage facilities can accommodate your possessions and ensure their safety.
Also, our self-storage units prove immensely beneficial not just during the decorating process but even after the festivities. As you prepare to take down the fairy lights and pack away the tinsel, consider using self-storage as a convenient place to keep your Christmas decorations until the next festive season arrives. This will not only free up valuable living space but also save you the hassle of searching for a suitable spot to stash your decorations all year round.
Winter, specifically Christmas, is a time of year when family and friends gather together. If it’s your turn to host the in-laws, you may look at your home and wonder where you’ll fit everybody. With self-storage, you can transform your home office or gym into the perfect spare bedroom without worrying about where you will put your desk and chair or running machine during their stay; just give them to us until your relatives have gone home!

If you enjoy spending time in the garden, you probably have all the furniture and outdoor items to make your garden your paradise. However, many of these items cannot handle the British wintertime and will rust, rot, or grow mould in cold, wet weather. Self-storage is the answer! Don’t clutter your garage with mountains of outdoor chairs, tables, and parasols; let us take them off you and protect them from the elements until the sun shines again.
