It’s amazing how much stuff we need during the winter! Everything from a heavy winter coat, boots, toques, and mitts, let alone shovels, and snowblowers! It always seems as though we must cram jam these items into closets and corners of the garage. Using a self storage unit in Calgary during the winter is a great way to free up much-needed storage space. Then you’ll be able to easily access your snowblower, skis, and sleds. Storing items that you won’t be using throughout the winter is a great way to make much-needed space for winter essentials. Read our tips on safely storing your belongings during the long Calgary winter.
Choose the Self Storage Facility That’s Right for You
It’s important to find a self storage facility that’s easily accessible. QE II Indoor Boat & Self Storage is conveniently located off Hwy 2. Our facility is safe and secure. You can even drive right up to your storage unit! We keep the alleys between the units clear of snow so that you can access your unit without having to worry about the snow.

Clean Your Items Before Storing Them Over the Winter
It’s important to thoroughly clean your items and to ensure that they’re dry before you store them. Your items may be damaged or deteriorate if they are left dirty or covered in grime. The time that you put in now cleaning your items will pay off in the spring when they are ready for use!
Insulate Your Winter Self Storage Items
It’s good practice to properly insulate items that you are storing over the winter. We suggest using wool or cotton blankets and sheets to cover your items. These materials are very breathable and will not trap moisture. They will also keep your items safe from a build-up of dust.
Don’t Store Your Electronics on the Ground
We suggest storing your electronics above the ground so that they are safe from any moisture that may accumulate on the ground. The ground is also the coldest part of a storage unit, and the cold may damage electronic devices. You can pack your electronic devices in boxes and keep these boxes safely above the ground.
Now that winter is fast approaching, don’t hesitate to contact QE II Indoor Boat & Storage to learn more about winter self storage units. Our experts will answer your questions and help you to find the storage unit that’s right for you. We also sell packing supplies in case you need any additional boxes or tape.
