The need for two sets of tires means keeping them in good condition and stored safely in the off-season is a priority. If you live in a condo building, tires can take up a lot of room in limited storage spaces. And if you’re lucky enough to have a garage attached to your home, it may seem like you have all the extra space to store your tires – but when temperatures drop, moisture and extreme cold can impact your tires’ lifespan. Ultimately, the question of where to store your tires boils down to three main considerations: space, security and tire maintenance....
As the temperature dips, the days grow shorter and kids get back into the swing of school, it’s time to think about packing up your summer stuff to keep everything secure during the cold months ahead.

Here are some ideas for keeping your summer items safe – and why it’s useful to have a convenient space to store them that isn’t your already cluttered garage or basement.

To avoid driving in Montreal’s Winters
Winters in Montreal are notorious for their freezing winds, heavy snowstorms and, above all, mountainous piles of snow. Driving to, from or even in the city is not only troublesome, but can be potentially dangerous and costly. Even finding a parking space is next to impossible. The best way to avoid these headaches this winter is to store your vehicle and use Montreal’s trusted public transportation system, at least until the much anticipated Spring time!
1) Store your Summer gear for next year
In the self-storage industry, we encourage our tenants to treat their storage unit as a kind of “Seasonal Closet”. Instead of cluttering your home with kiddie pools, golf clubs, canoes, kayaks, and all the things that make Summer great, put them in a storage unit until next year. And in exchange, bring home the things you will need to prepare for Montreal’s brutal winters, like shovels, winter boots, toboggans and skis. This will help keep your living space clean and organized all year-round!
