Self storage tips Dover PA

Lawn Mowers

  1. Take spark plugs off and remove the battery. Placing the battery indoors for the winter will stop you from having to replace it come spring.
  2. Drain the gas tank to avoid clogged lines.
  3. Underneath the lawn mower gets stuck with grass and yard clippings.
  4. Top off oil with a stabilizer or drain oil all together.

Gardening Equipment

  1. Sharpen shovels and other gardening tools. This is a great time to see if any tools need replaced after a long summer of yard work.

Storing Grills

  1. Clean off all parts of the grill. Any leftover scents or droppings of food attract rodents, which can be damaging to your other belongings in storage.
  2. Spray the inside with oil to keep your grill from rusting out.
  3. Leave the propane and charcoal at home! Storage units at Dover Mini Storage should not have propane tanks or any flammable liquids.

RV Storage

  1. Place DampRid around the inside to keep mold from growing in case condensation happens.
  2. Keep the fridge door open after cleaning it, to keep air flow moving through out the appliance.
