5 things to consider when storing sports equipment

Written on: May 20th, 2021

This year has been crazy with COVID. It has made many of us rethink priorities and what we want to spend our time doing since we cannot travel. Have you purchased new sports equipment such as bikes, skis, snowboards, hockey equipment, golf clubs, camping gear, or kayaks? There is only so much space at home to store all your gear. If you are faced with the issue of running out of secure space to store your gear, self-storage in SE Calgary is an ideal solution.

Storing Sports Equipment


Whether it is your bikes or skis, you have a lot of money invested in sports equipment. With summer just around the corner, it is a great time to put away all the winter gear and get ready for summer. A small self-storage unit in SE Calgary can take care of the skis, snowboards, snowshoes and make room for the summer sports equipment. You place your lock on the unit, so you are the only person with access.


Depending on how much gear you have, a small or medium-size unit ranging in size from 5×5, 5×10, or 10×10 will likely be perfect for you. You can rent a storage locker and keep it as an extension to your home or garage, to keep the things you love. Find a storage locker that allows access in the times that are convenient for you and that it is easy access from work or home. This way you do not have to go out of your way to pick up gear, you can pick it up on your way to your next adventure.

Review the Owner’s Manual

It is always a good idea to review the Owner’s Manual to ensure you are properly storing items if it can impact the warranty. Proper storage will keep equipment in good working order and make sure the warranty is valid.

Inspect and repair

It is good practice to inspect helmets, bikes, kayaks, bindings, and all your gear to ensure there are no rips, tears or repairs needed. Not only does it ensure the equipment remains in good working order for the next time you want to use it, but it also ensures your safety.

Clean and dry

Depending on your equipment, it is ideal to give it a wipe down or good cleaning after each use, before putting it back into your small storage unit. This ensures it is ready for the next time you plan to take it out. Furthermore, it ensures that you are not adding excess moisture in the unit that could affect it or other items you are storing.

Self-storage in SE Calgary can provide secure and convenient storage for all your gear this season. A small or medium storage unit will be ideal to store your gear. Take precautions to ensure your gear is being stored so it is ready when you are. Enjoy the summer and have your gear ready to go when you are!
