Listed below are the items you might want to consider placing in your unit for the next few months.

Summer clothing – In a small living space, it can make a big difference to put out-of-season clothing in a storage unit.
Lawn equipment – While it may be okay to leave this equipment outside during the summer, the winter is an entirely different story.
Recreational gear – Put away sporting equipment, such as skateboards, hiking boots, and life jackets, until the warm weather returns.
Small engine vehicles – You won’t be riding your motorcycle or ATV for a while, so put them away in storage to gain more space at home.

Some items you have in your home are more fragile than others and can easily be damaged if they are exposed to cold weather. If you just can’t seem to find a place to keep them in your home then you should consider renting a temperature controlled storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO. Items that are easily damaged in winter conditions are as follows;

Battery-operated items
Items that include liquid

Fluctuating temperatures can create condensation inside electronics, causing irreparable damage. Likewise, anything that has liquid in it already can crack due to expansion from freezing. This is especially true of battery cells, including those for cars, mowers, and other small engines, which can crack when frozen.
