Storing a car during the winter months

Car Storage TipsThe leaves are changing, the leaves are falling, and the rain will not go away. This is a sure sign that fall is upon us. If you are in need of storage for your car, trailer, motorcycle or RV, Storplace of Hickory Hollow is the place for you. We offer convenient parking spaces and storage unit sizes to park your valuable items. We offer outdoor storage and two different sizes of parking space. If you would like a storage unit, we offer as small as a 10 x 15 to as large as a 12 x 30 that could fit a trailer or large boat. If you plan on storing a car, here are some tips to make sure your vehicle remains operable and in good condition while in storage.

The first step to storing your vehicle is to decide if you would like to store it in a storage unit or outside parking space. If you choose to store your car outside, keep in mind that this decisions leaves your car vulnerable to the various elements such as precipitation and over-exposure to the sun. The precipitation can cause your car to rust and the sunlight can cause the paint to rust or peel and damage your tires. A high-quality car cover is highly recommended if you plan to keep your car in an outside parking space. If you decide to store your vehicle in an enclosed storage unit this will protect it from all outside elements such as the sun, precipitation, rust, and extreme temperatures. An outside storage space is also handy if there are other items that you need to store, you can stack those items around your car to make the best use of the space. If you are able to drive your car for 15 minutes once per week, this will also help with the overall care of your vehicle until you remove it from storage. Below you will find some other quick tips for car storage:

  • Purchase a quality car cover to help reduce dirt, dust, or rust from developing
  • Change the oil, brake fluid/coolant and filter
  • Fill the car with gas; it is not a good idea to store a vehicle with an empty tank because this can cause moisture to build in the tank
  • Disconnect the battery and get your tires balanced and rotated. It is also a good idea to jack the car up so that the tires do not develop flats
  • Lastly, release your parking brake so that there is not an issue with your brake pads sticking to your rotors

Spring Time Storage

Cherry Blossoms

Happy Spring!

It is that time of year; Springtime. It is also the time of the year for all the “honey do” projects that have piled up from the winter season. Whether you have been assigned the task of de-cluttering closets and spring cleaning the house, cleaning out the garage and sheds, or an even larger remodeling project; there is a solution to your woes of all of the extra things impeding your progress:  storage.

One of the main projects that will show up on a “honey-do: list is cleaning out closets and spring cleaning the house. It can be a very tedious project, but only because there is so much extra stuff to find a new home for. Christmas decorations just get thrown back into closets anywhere they can fit and old, still working, items that have been replaced with new throughout the holiday season get shoved somewhere out of the way. Many people will go into the spring season with the intent to have a garage sale to get rid of some of the extra clutter and make room for all the new. Why not go about it in an organized way?  Stop by Hickory Hollow StorPlace Self Storage and pick up boxes to get those extra items packed up neatly. While you are at StorPlace Self Storage, reserve your storage unit.There are several smaller sized units that would be perfect to store extra decorations out of the way and also to keep everything organized for that upcoming sale.

The next thing on a lot of people’s lists is to tackle the messy garage. Everyone knows that garages and sheds become the “catch all” during the winter time. All of the things that do not need to be kept inside the house but do not need to be thrown away either, get placed in the garage or shed. Storing these items in self storage may be a perfect option for you. There are several medium-sized storage units that would be perfect for all the boxes, extra lawn equipment, and even tools. You can conveniently access the storage units by just pulling straight up to them and unloading all of your extra stuff until a later date when you might need them.

Another spring time project that you would benefit with having a little extra space would be remodeling.  No matter if you are just storing the furniture from different rooms that need painting, all the items in your kitchen that is being remodeled, or storing building materials for that new addition to your home; we have the perfect sized storage unit for you! Another benefit to storing at StorPlace Self Storage is there is no long-term commitment, so if your project is supposed to only take a month you can still benefit from storage. You can also stay as long as you would like for those projects that take a little longer than expected.

There is no spring cleaning or organizing job too big or too small. StorPlace Self Storage of Hickory Hollow has storage unit sizes to accommodate a wide range of requests. Stop by StorPlace Self Storage of Hickory Hollow at 5251 Mt. View Rd in Antioch Tennessee and someone will be more than happy to help you assess your storage needs.

StorPlace Beats the Heat

Handy merchandise to help you with your packing will help you beat the heat.

If you haven’t used a storage facility in several years, I have some news for you!  Storage has been evolving with the times and it is now possible to store things that you never thought you could. All of this is possible with temperature controlled units!  Everyone is familiar with a standard storage space. It has a large garage door that rolls up, and inside you can store many household items. A fairly new development for storage facilities are the addition of heated and cooled or climate controlled units.

A heated and cooled unit provides air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter. These units allow you to store items sensitive to heat and cold. Anything like; leather, photos, electronics, and antiques can be put into these units safely. We keep the temperature 80 degrees in the summer and 60 degrees in the winter. While that may sound a bit hot or cold to you, your goods will not be affected at all by the change from winter to summer and vice versa. They don’t need to be at 72 degrees to be comfortable like us humans!

A climate controlled storage unit is pretty similar to a heated and cooled space. The only difference being that a climate controlled unit really does control all aspects of the climate, namely humidity. A dehumidifier will remove excess moisture from the air.  This is especially helpful for storing items like pianos. As we know all too well, it gets extremely humid in the summer here in Tennessee. If you are storing over the summer, or even storing over many summers, you should look into storing in a heated and cooled, or climate controlled space. This will ensure your goods will come out in the same condition that they go in.

As a general rule, most units that are heated and cooled, or climate controlled are down interior hallways. You will need to remember that your goods will be travelling down a hallway into the space. This isn’t always troublesome however, because at StorPlace we offer large moving carts in our hallways that you can load and roll back to your unit.

Now there is nothing wrong with storing in a standard non-temperature controlled space. These spaces are like our garages at home. If you feel comfortable storing items in a garage you may store them in a standard space. Some tenant’s have also chosen to rent two spaces; a standard space and a heated and cooled space. This allows them to put items like lawn mowers, dishes, paperwork, and toys in their standard space.  They fill their heated and cooled space with any items that are temperature sensitive like televisions, clothing, leather, and wood furniture.

Every situation is different and some people would rather err on the side of caution and put all of their items into a heated and cooled space. Others may only need the unit for a short time and wish to take a chance on leaving their temperature sensitive items in the heat or cold. Whichever way you choose, remember that StorPlace Self Storage has an option for you! StorPlace of Old Hickory Blvd at 14985 Old Hickory Blvd. has drive up heated and cooled units that would be perfect for a business! Inquire with us today by calling (615) 832-3388.
