Storing your tools might sound like the easiest thing in the world, but there’s a bit of preparation involved to make sure your tools stay in top shape and there’s no risk nasty surprises, like rust. Ensuring your tools and accessories have been properly cleaned, dried and packed away is fundamental to the longevity of your tools while they’re being stored away.

Prepping Your Tools For Self Storage
Whether your tools are going into one of our storage units for the long or short term, you want to keep them in good condition. You might also want to share these tips with your workmates to make sure that everything stays the way you left it! We’ve scoured the internet for you to find the best advice for long or short term storage and found a few handy tips.
Here’s how to access self storage and prep all your equipment for the best results while in storage.
Give every single tool and accessory the best clean it has ever had. If your tools are going to be coming in and going out on daily jobs, this won’t be applicable to you.
A good clean ensures all plaster, dirt and moisture is removed and leaves your tools at less risk of rusting.
Clean the tools with a damp rag and if you have any particularly stubborn spots, a small amount of vinegar will help break this up.
Use a clean cloth to dry each part thoroughly to ensure there is no moisture remaining on any section of the tools.
Lubricate all the metal parts of the tools generously. Need more tips? Check out this blog for an in depth look at preparing your tools.
