7 Simple Ways Self Storage in Lawton Can Help You Store Your Off-Season Stuff

Think about all the stuff you have in your home, driveway, or business. How much of it do you actually use every day, and how much of it is stuff that you only need part of the year and could be packed away or stored during the off-season? You probably won’t need that boat until the weather warms up in the summer. That snow blower isn’t going to see any action until January. Your hunting equipment has its season, as do your camping equipment and holiday décor. And all of these things are taking up valuable space while they wait for their season to arrive. Fortunately, self storage in Lawton, Oklahoma from Storage ‘R’ Us can help you store all your off-season stuff, and here are 7 ways we do it! 

  1. Store Autos, Boats and RVs in Lawton

When people think of self storage in Oklahoma, they tend to picture individual storage units that can hold all your unused furniture or boxes of belongings that you don’t want cluttering up your attic and garage. And of course, self storage in Lawton has plenty of those available, in different sizes to accommodate most any need! What you may not have known is that many self storage facilities also offer self storage for autos, boats, and RVs. Sure, storing an RV or boat at home doesn’t cost anything, but it takes up an awful lot of space, and some HOA agreements prohibit storing large vehicles at your house. That’s where RV, boat, and specialty auto storage in Lawton can come in really handy! 

  1. Self Storage for Off-Season Hunting and Camping Equipment

When hunting season is over, it’s important to properly store your gear. After all, you spent a lot of money on it, so you don’t want it just lying in the bed of your truck or piled in a heap in the basement. The best thing to do is to get your gear properly cleaned up, repaired where necessary, and put away neatly into a self storage facility so that you won’t be tripping over it during the off-season. While you can’t keep your actual firearms in self storage in Lawton—those should go in a gun safe—you can keep just about everything else here so it’s ready to go when hunting season rolls back around. Same goes for your tents, sleeping bags, and other camping equipment.

  1. Storage for Your Sporting Equipment

Most outdoor sports aren’t a year-round affair. Winters are too cold for golf, and summers are too warm for skiing. Whatever your sport, there’s a time of the year when you use your equipment, and a time of the year when it probably just sits someplace (hopefully out of the way) and waits until it’s time to get back out on the slopes or out on the links. Whatever sporting equipment you need to store during the off-season, there’s space for it at Storage ‘R’ Us.

  1. Lawn and Garden Equipment and Furniture Storage

If you own a home in Lawton, Oklahoma then you’ve probably got a fair amount of lawn equipment and garden tools in the garage or shed. From shovels and rakes to lawnmowers and leaf blowers, these items can take up a lot of space that might be better used for something else during the rest of the year. The same goes for pool furniture and equipment, or even patio furniture, which you probably don’t get much use out of in the middle of an Oklahoma winter. All these things can be packed up during the part of the year when they’re not in use—just remember to empty the gas tank on lawnmowers and other equipment with combustion engines—so that they’ll be ready to go when spring rolls around again!

  1. Off-Season Storage for Business

If you own a business, you know that space costs money. Whether you’re leasing office space or running a business out of your own home, every square inch of real estate is valuable. No matter what kind of business you run, you’ve probably got stuff on hand that you only need part of the year—whether that’s paperwork that only comes out around tax time, seasonal inventory, or equipment related to yard work or construction. Self storage in Lawton is a good way for your business to maximize your use of space while saving money and improving operational efficiency by keeping your stuff safe, secure, and accessible even when it’s not in use.

  1. Storing Seasonal Clothes for Your Family

You don’t need heavy coats and sweaters in the midst of a sweltering Oklahoma heat wave, and you probably don’t need shorts or swimsuits in the middle of winter. Especially if you have a big family, all those seasonal clothing items can take up a lot of space in the closet. So why not use self storage in Lawton as an extension of your closet to pack all those scarves and gloves away until you need them again? 

  1. And Everything Else…

Most of us decorate for the holidays, but where do we put all those decorations when Christmas, Halloween, or any other holiday is over? Some of us may keep snow tires or other automotive supplies around that we only use during the winter months. If you have a child who is going away to college, it may be time to put some of the stuff from their bedroom into storage, at least until they come back for the summer. Whatever you need to store—whether it’s for just part of the year or all of it—you can find the perfect place for it with self storage in Lawton from Storage ‘R’ Us.

Whether you’re a small business looking to save a bit of space, a hunter or sports aficionado who needs someplace safe and secure to keep your gear during the off-season, an auto buff with a project car that needs specialty auto storage in Lawton, or just someone who wants to reclaim their living space, Storage ‘R’ Us has the solution for you!

Every home owners’ association is different, but one thing that most of them have in common is that they impose a lot of rules. Sometimes those rules are about what color you can paint your house, or what you can do with your landscaping; other times they’re about what you can keep in your driveway or even your backyard.

Many HOAs won’t let you keep vehicles parked in the driveway or backyard for long periods of time—that can include boats, trailers, RVs, and project cars under tarps. Some have rules against any vehicles that aren’t tagged or licensed, or against things like four wheelers, campers, or snowmobiles.

HOA rules don’t end with vehicles, either. Many home owners’ associations won’t allow you to keep those big, competition-style barbecue pits in your driveway or yard—no matter how many cookouts you host—while others may have rules against having freestanding toolsheds in the backyard, or even things like trampolines, jungle gyms, or backyard playsets for the kids. Before you put up any structure on your property, it’s probably a good idea to check with your HOA and see what the rules are in your neighborhood, and if you’re moving to a new place, it’s a good idea to check the HOA bylaws before you move in to see what’s allowed and what isn’t.

Fortunately, whatever you need to park in your driveway or yard that your HOA won’t allow, there’s a solution waiting for you at Storage ‘R’ Us. We’ve got spots available for specialty vehicle storage of all kinds at all of our locations, from RV storage and boat storage to covered storage for that project car that you’ve been tinkering with.

So if you’ve got seasonal vehicles like boats and RVs, jet skis, or simply cars that you don’t drive very often, we’ve got a place for them in vehicle storage in Oklahoma at Storage ‘R’ Us! Whether you’re already living in a pretty strict HOA but really want to pick up a shiny new RV for when you hit the road this summer, or if you’ve just recently moved to a new home and found out that they won’t let you park your fishing boat in the driveway anymore, you can bring them down to Storage ‘R’ Us and give them a home away from home in our RV and boat storage.

More than just vehicle storage, Storage ‘R’ Us is a great destination for anything that your HOA won’t let you keep in the driveway or the yard. Need someplace to store the tools that would have gone in that toolshed? We’ve got just the place! Still want to hang onto that trampoline or backyard playset but can’t put it out where you currently live? It can stay with us for a while. We’re also a great place to store holiday decorations and other seasonal items that take up space in the basement, attic, or garage during the part of the year when they’re not in use.

So, whether you need vehicle storage solutions for a boat, RV, or project car, or just need someplace to keep things so they’re out of the way, Storage ‘R’ Us has got the solution for you!

Of course you know by now that we offer plenty of secure, convenient, and affordable self-storage solutions in Lawton, OK and beyond, but did you know that you can also store your car, RV, or boat here? That’s right! Storage ‘R’ Us offers a wide range of options for vehicle self-storage, from auto storage in Lawton to RV storage and even boat storage.

Vehicle self-storage comes in a lot of different forms. You can park your car in a storage unit, take advantage of our covered RV storage in Lawton, or park it out in the open under a tarp. Whatever option is right for you, before you bring in your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV, there are a few things you’ll want to do to get it ready for self-storage, especially to keep furry critters and other pests from getting inside.

Think about it: A stored vehicle would seem like a pretty cushy home to bugs and rodents. There are padded seats to burrow and nest into, and plenty of hidey-holes to keep them safe from predators. Just imagine the palace that a parked RV would seem to a mouse in the winter! So what’s the best way to keep ’em out?

Well, depending on the level of vehicle self-storage that you’re planning to use—and the type of vehicle you’re planning to store—your pest-proofing needs may vary, but there are a few good rules of thumb to keep in mind. The first and perhaps most important is to clean your vehicle thoroughly before you bring it in to auto storage in Lawton. That’s just good general advice, but it also means that there won’t be crumbs and other bits of food to attract insects and other pests. By the same token, you’ll also want to make sure that you take all the food out of your RV before you put it into RV storage in Lawton.

For boat storage, make sure that you get a tight-fitting cover, even if you’re going to be storing your boat under covered storage or even inside. And do what you can to seal any gaps around the doors of your RV before it goes into long-term storage.

A bit of steel wool stuck in your tailpipe can help keep critters from nesting inside—just leave yourself a note so you remember to take it out again! Of course, depending on what you’re trying to keep out, there are plenty of pest repellents and even traps that you can buy that are safe for use in your vehicles, and of course, it never hurts to toss in some mothballs to protect upholstery and fabrics. Dryer sheets can also work wonders by repelling mice and other vermin, and will also leave your car smelling like fresh laundry! Our friendly vehicle self-storage experts can help you find the right solution for your vehicle.

So if you’re in the market for auto storage in Lawton—whether you’re looking to store a car, boat, RV, or any other vehicle—look no further than vehicle self-storage from Storage ‘R’ Us!

There are few things that embody Americana better than cruising across this great nation in your very own RV. You can go anywhere you want, and bring all (or at least most) of the comforts of home with you when you go. Unlike with air travel, you can see the many landmarks that are scattered across the continental United States, stop at roadside attractions, hit unusual local restaurants, and just experience all the sights, sounds, and flavors of America the beautiful.

But you can’t get your kicks on Route 66 all 365 days of the year, so you can expect to park your RV during the winter months or just whenever you’re back at the ranch (so to speak). The problem is, RVs are big toys, and they require a big spot to park in. Chances are your driveway isn’t going to cut it, and many HOAs don’t allow RVs to be parked there long term. So what do you do with your RV when you’re not on the road?

Fortunately, Storage ‘R’ Us has got you covered. Literally. We offer both covered and outside storage for RVs at our Rogers Lane and East Gore locations in Lawton. Outside may just be a gravel lot, but it’s gated and secure, with digital video cameras and lights protecting the grounds. It’s also convenient, with 24-hour access, so that you can get to it whenever the itch to get out on the road strikes you.

If you’re looking for something a little nicer, covered storage will offer your RV protection from the worst of the elements, and electrical hookups are often available if you need to do something like clean the old girl out during the off-season. Maybe the best part is that RV storage in Lawton from Storage ‘R’ Us is not just secure and accessible, it’s also affordable! Covered parking will run you around $140 per month, while outside RV parking only costs about $75 per month.

Need someplace to store your RV this winter? Look no further than Storage ‘R’ Us at either our East Gore or Rogers Lane locations!
