How to Prepare Your Things for Storage

Jul 11, 2017 11:00:00 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Winter, Holiday Organization, Spring Organization, Summer Organization


Preparing your things for storage

Packing your things for storage can be a major undertaking. But the more work you put in now, the less frustration and heartache you’ll have when you need the items again.

Portable buildings are a great asset after a big move, remodel or just for everyday storage. Cook Portable Warehouses builds their sheds to last, so your belongings stay safe and dry. Read about what Cook promises to each of their customers!

Cook sheds can be used for various different storage needs from furniture, sports equipment, clothes and more. Here are some simple steps to remember as you’re preparing your things for storage.

  • Clean everything.

You may not think you need to clean stuff, but it will help in the preservation of whatever you are storing. This way you can ensure there aren’t any bugs hidden in the items before you store them. Also, when it comes to unpack the items, if stored correctly, you’ll have less dust and dirt to wipe off.

  • Purchase the proper packing materials.

Plastic storage bins with lids are probably the best things to use since they are not as susceptible to the elements, such as humidity. Unlike a cardboard box, you can tightly seal these storage bins.

You also want to get packing materials that will help you keep your items safe, especially the more fragile items. To save a little on packing materials, keep old towels and rags to wrap items in.

Storing Items for Winter in Your Shed

Mar 31, 2017 2:17:20 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Winter, Holiday Organization, Holiday Ideas


Temperatures will continue to dip so now is the time to begin thinking through how you'll store items through winter. In your garage? Your shed? Under the bed? 

Whether it's summer clothes or outdoor lawn equipment, you'll need a safe place to store it during the colder months. 

The great thing is that a Cook shed makes this process so much easier!  Cook sheds are available in many different styles to fit your needs. You can even split up your space, the Lofted Barn being a great option if you’re needing room for storage but also for large equipment. Or, the Handyman offers two spaces for you to enjoy your hobby and also store extra belongings.

So, as a part of your fall cleaning routine, put away those summer items until you need them again. You want to make sure you put these items away in a secure spot, away from bugs and the elements. Cook portable buildings help you declutter the garage and your closets so you have room for seasonal clothes, recreational items and equipment.
