Winter is officially over, so it’s time to pack away all your winter sports gear away until next year. Whether you own several AFL balls, rebounder nets, or hockey sticks, it can be difficult to find enough space to store it all. If your collection of winter sports equipment has grown out of control, consider renting Self Storage in Campbellfield from StoreLocal Campbellfield. This storage solution will help you keep your home free of clutter, and is a secure storage option.

Ball organisation tips

Bring some plastic bins into your storage unit to organise your balls. All your balls can be stored in plastic bins or containers with lids that close. If you know you’re not going to need these balls again for several months, consider decompressing them. This will prevent them from popping or deflating while they’re not in use. You can also store your balls using a bungee cord system, where a set of bungee cords are connected to a basic square frame. These systems are similar to ones used to store balls in department stores. If you have a lot of balls to store, this could be an effective method in your home as well as in your Self Storage in Campbellfield.

Storing winter sports clothing

Make sure you give all your winter sports clothing a thorough wash before you move them into your storage unit. This will help prevent unpleasant smells from lingering and staining your clothes. Store your winter sports uniforms covered up, whether that’s folded in plastic bags or containers, or hanging in clothing bags. If you’re storing shoes as well, make sure you spray them with a deodoriser before storing.

Organising and storing other winter sports equipment

Install a pegboard on an empty wall in your storage unit. A pegboard is a versatile way to store many different types of winter sports equipment off the floor. For example, you can add hooks to the pegboard to hang your hockey stick, shin guards, or strapping tape. Hooks can also be used to effectively store helmets, flags, and other equipment.
