How to Hit the Right Note When Storing Your Musical Instruments

High-quality musical instruments are quite expensive and may be extremely valuable to you personally, so you’ll want to take care of them to the best of your ability. To do this, you’ll need a safe storage unit with climate control, and you’ll need to prepare your instruments for storage. Keep reading to learn how.

Safe Storage Space

No matter how expensive your guitar, trombone, or drum set is, its value to you probably exceeds the price tag. That’s why you need to find a safe space to store your instruments. Look for a storage unit that can keep your musical instruments safe so they’re in the same condition when you come back to pick them up. The storage facility doesn’t necessarily need to have a security guard on premise, but customers and employees should be the only ones who can access the property.

Climate Control

If you’ve ever left your guitar in the car overnight and found it out of tune when you play it the next day, the temperature could have played a role in its detuning. Cold temperatures can warp your instruments and change the way they play and sound, which is why climate-controlled storage is so important. Once your instruments are affected by the temperature, you’ll have to pay to get them set up again so they play and sound properly. Avoid this extra expense by storing yours in a climate-controlled storage facility.

Proper Packing

Keep your instruments safe when you put them into storage by packing them properly. Never leave your instruments loose in the storage space, and use a hard case rather than a soft case for string instruments like guitars and basses.

The way your musical instruments play has everything to do with how you store them, so work with POUCH Self Storage to keep them in top condition. Our storage units in Long Beach are protected and climate-controlled, and we can even help out with packing supplies. Call (800) 378-4598 if you’d like to reach us.

Comparing Covered and Open RV Storage

RV storage is an issue most owners will have to deal with eventually. There are multiple ways to store your RV, but two of the most popular are covered and open. Here is a look at how these two kinds of RV storage compare.

Open RV storage is essentially a large parking lot within a storage facility. It gives you the benefit of vehicle storage within a secured environment, but open storage does not provide any protection from the elements. Covered storage allows you to park your RV on a secured lot underneath a roof that provides protection from the sun, rain, and winter weather. Covered storage is not fully enclosed. Depending on the climate in which you are storing your RV, both kinds of storage can be acceptable.

POUCH Self Storage offers both types of RV storage and is happy to answer your questions so you can select the right option for your RV. Learn more about vehicle storage in Rancho Cucamonga and Fountain Valley by calling (800) 378-4598.
