6 Benefits of Self Storage for Sports Equipment

Using self-storage for sports equipment has many benefits. Many sports come with a lot of equipment that needs storing in a safe and suitable place. It is rare that our homes have this, particularly if you are a coach and have a large amount of equipment.

Here we are going to discuss the benefits of using storage for your sports equipment and we will be addressing common concerns associated with storing sports equipment within self-storage. 

Sports Equipment: The Dilemma of Space and Safety

If you are a sports enthusiast, your sporting equipment could be leading to challenges within your home, particularly for the people who are living with you! Having a large amount of sports equipment and gear can lead to your home becoming very cluttered which could, in turn, lead to your sports equipment being damaged as it is not being stored properly. 

If you do have a place in which you are storing it outside of the house, such as a shed, the issue here is that a shed does not have a high level of security so you run the risk of your expensive equipment being stolen. 

Self-storage will be able to help you to solve these issues by offering you a cheap, clean and safe space in which you can store all your sports equipment and gear. 

Unlocking the Benefits of Self-Storage for Sports Equipment

Within this section, we are going to walk you through the array of benefits that storing your sports equipment within self-storage will bring to your life and home, without hindering your ability to access your equipment when you need it. 

1. Decluttering Your Home or Facility

Storing your sports equipment in self-storage will help you to have a more organised and spacious home as you will be able to store large or bulky equipment with a storage unit. 

Having a clutter-free home has many psychological benefits as clutter is believed to make people feel stressed, anxious and overwhelmed much more easily. It also has a detrimental effect on a person’s motivation and focus so having a declutter will prove to be extremely beneficial. 

2. Ensuring Equipment Safety and Security

Using self-storage to store your sports equipment will allow you to have peace of mind that it is all being kept safe and secure. All professional storage facilities will have a high level of security such as CCTV, alarms and secure access. 

At Cinch Self Storage, each of our units is equipped with an intruder alarm and we have 24/7 CCTV surveillance in each of our stores. You can rest assured that expensive or sentimental pieces of equipment will be well protected within our self-storage. 

3. Protecting Gear from Environmental Damage

Along with intruder alarms, all professional self-storage facilities will be fitted with systems to protect your sports equipment from environmental damage such as weather-related incidents, pests or mould. 

This is an extremely important thing to inquire about when looking at storing your sports equipment within self-storage as you do not want any of your equipment or gear to be damaged. 

All of our units are fitted with smoke and fire detectors and we keep them all clean and dry. We also have storage insurance on offer which will protect you against anything such as a flood or a fire explosion. 

4. Providing Organised & Convenient Access

Storing your sports equipment within self-storage will allow you to organise your equipment in a way that works and makes the most sense to you, whether that’s storing equipment based on season or dependent on use. You will be able to have the space in which to make this happen. 

You will be able to continue to access your equipment when you need it as many storage facilities offer extended opening hours. Within some of our Cinch Self Storage facilities, we have extended opening hours of 6am to 11pm, Monday to Sunday. Please check our website to see if your local store has extended opening hours.

5. Offering Cost-Effective and Flexible Solutions

Although there will be a cost that comes with storing your sports equipment within a storage facility, this cost will be much less than having to replace or repair equipment due to in-home damage or being stolen out of garden sheds. 

Our storage units are all prices based on the size and we have flexible rental contracts so we are able to find a unit to suit different needs and budgets. 

6. Reducing Risks of Accidents at Home

Along with there being a risk of equipment being damaged, there is also a risk of people having accidents as improperly stored sports equipment could pose a trip hazard or a fall risk. 

Storing your sports equipment in self-storage will help you to have a safer home for you and everyone who lives with you. 

Self-Storage: Keeping Your Sports Equipment in Top Form

Using self-storage in order to store your sports equipment has many benefits. It will allow you to have an organised, spacious, safe home whilst knowing that your sports equipment is being taken care of. 

It is a cost-effective way in which to know that your equipment is being stored within a space that is clean, dry and protected by high-level security. 

Our self-storage would be perfect for storing your sports equipment. Head to our website to find your local store and get in touch today.
