The winter season in London is pretty harsh. With icy winds blowing across and temperatures falling to 3 degrees Centigrade and snow blowing up everywhere. But like all seasons, winters have their own set of tasks that you must do, like storing away your goods.

While storing things may be a task that you may have done before, doing it again does seem daunting. Putting away your summer essentials like that barbeque grill, toys, outdoor furniture, and even clothing can seem like a handful. But you either store them away safe and sound or risk damaging them in the cruel and harsh winter. No matter how robust some of them may seem, withstanding the cold outside is not something they’ll be able to do.

What should I store away in the winter?

There is a long list of items that you should put away in the winter. Some of the most essentials are:

  • All your outdoor furniture
  • Special tools
  • Inflatable items like pools and tubes
  • Gardening items
  • Your beach toys and water sports items
  • Bikes
  • Summer clothes
  • Outdoor toys

And the list goes on. But it’s not just the summer things that you have to put away. There can be many other things too.

Why is containerised storage the best option for winter?

A more efficient storage option, containerised storage is a container where your belongings and packed and kept. Usually, this task is done by professional removals. They then provide you with an inventory of the items that are kept inside the container for reference.

Then they security seal your storage alongside other similar containers. This option is comparatively cheaper and also safer than self-storage. Other than the storage staff no one else is allowed within the premises and before one can visit they need to make an official appointment usually a day or two before.

Containerised storage protects your items from wear and tear. With absolute safety and placement in a climate-controlled facility, you can rest assured that your items will be just like you placed them. Plus, if you were looking for some extra space, containerized storage will give you that.
