In Berks County, we have a temperate climate. We have cold winters that require snow supplies and hot summers that require gardening supplies. Thus, we need different tools to keep our home and yard in order throughout the year. With this in mind, it makes sense to rotate your seasonal yard tools. Unused items just take up space. Storing items in a separate but local place can keep them out of your way, but nearby.

There are many advantages to using DAK Self Storage to store your home and garden supplies. DAK Self Storage offers safe and secure units to make sure your items are not damaged or stolen.


Easier to Move Around

One of the nicest benefits of storing your seasonal items away in DAK Self Storage is easier movement. Too many bulky items make it difficult to maneuver. If you need to get to a certain item, you may be constantly stepping around your lawn mower or other tools. By getting some unneeded items out of your home storage space, you will be able to move around more freely.

Easier to Find What You Are Looking For

Storing unneeded items can make other items easier to find. The more tools you have to go through, the longer it probably takes you to find what you need.  By storing away some items, you will have less to go through and find what you need faster. This will save you stress when you are in a hurry to find a certain tool.

Protects Your Items

If you don’t have much room for all the seasonal items in your home, you may end up leaving certain items out in your yard. This exposes them to harsh weather and causes them to rust and wear. Then you end up having to replace the damaged items sooner than you intended.

Storing your lawn supplies at DAK Self Storage can help fix this problem. We have cool, dry units that keep your tools safe from the elements. If you want to be extra safe, we also have climate controlled units. You can store at a specific temperature to prevent weathering.

Storing items in a DAK Self Storage Unit can help protect them from humidity, bugs, and other pests. By using DAK Self Storage to protect your items, you will save money in the long run. If you properly store your supplies in one of our units, they will likely last longer.

Local and Convenient

If you live in the Reading area, your items will always be a short drive away at DAK Self Storage. When you want to rotate your items, all you have to do is pick a day and take a couple trips back and forth to swap your items. DAK Self Storage also recommends that you check on your supplies every once in a while. This way you can be sure they are stored in proper conditions. If you need any supplies to protect your tools, we have a supply store on site.

What to Store during Summer Months

During the summer, the sun will be too hot to allow any ice to form. You can store away any supplies that deal with snow and ice such as:

  • Snow blowers
  • Snow plows
  • Snowmobiles
  • Sleds
  • Shovels
  • Ice choppers
  • Road salt
  • Christmas decorations

What to Store during Winter Months

In the winter months, snow will be on the ground and your lawn will likely be buried under snow. Thus, you won’t need your yard and garden supplies such as:

  • Lawnmower
  • Pool toys and supplies
  • Rakes
  • Pesticides
  • Plant food
  • Pots for plants
  • Weed Wacker
  • Hedge trimmer
  • Garden hose
  • Sprinkler
  • Patio furniture

By storing your seasonal supplies at DAK Self Storage, you can unclutter your storage space. You will be less stressed when keeping your home orderly and have more time to spend with your family.
