When it comes to storing and moving your lawn and power tools, there are a few precautions you can take to protect your belongings. Taking the time to properly pack up, transport, and store your tools will prevent any unwanted damage and can help save you money in the long run.
Don't Store Indoor and Outdoor Items Together
If you're someone who likes to keep things organized, it can be tempting to store all your items in one place. However, when it comes to indoor and outdoor items, this can be a big mistake. Outdoor items are often not treated and can harbor small bugs and insects that can easily infest your other belongings during storage. This can lead to a frustrating and time-consuming cleaning process when you retrieve your items from storage.
To avoid any unwanted pests, it's best to store indoor and outdoor items separately. By taking this extra step, you can protect your belongings and make sure they stay in good condition for years to come.
If you do decide to store indoor and outdoor items together, it's important that you understand the risks, properly wrap items to protect them, and thoroughly clean and dry any of those outdoor items you put in the container.
Don't Store Items with Batteries and Gasoline Inside
It's also important to keep in mind that it is not safe to store items with batteries and gasoline inside of them. While it may seem convenient, it poses a serious risk for potential fires or explosions. Batteries can leak or even ignite under certain conditions, while gasoline fumes are highly flammable. It's important to keep these items stored separately and in a cool, dry place to minimize any risk. Don't take any chances with your safety - keep batteries and gasoline stored properly.
Be Cautious of Insects When Storing Your Belongings
If you decide to load your garden tools with other items, it's crucial to ensure that they are "critter-free" beforehand. Items previously stored outside and then placed in your container are more likely to create “critter” problems, as it is often hard to detect small insects or eggs burrowed in wood handles or in the nooks and crannies of your equipment.
Luckily, there are many precautions that we can take to minimize the risk of insect infestations. It's important to be aware of this risk and take steps to reduce it.
Inspect your items before placing them in storage,
Use sealed containers
Properly wrap your wood and upholstered furniture
