All Storage Online | January 4, 2021 @ 12:00 AM

Even though Texas is always said to only have two seasons, hot and hotter, there can actually be quite a bit of variation in weather during the winter.

To ensure you have an easy and safe time accessing your Mesquite, TX, self-storage, All Storage has a guide for the best ways to access your self-storage in winter.

Pack Your Storage Unit Smart

No matter what season you’re moving into your storage unit, the first thing you need to remember is to pack smart. Even though moving can be stressful and time-consuming, packing your self-storage in Mesquite, TX, properly and smartly will pay off in the future.

What do we mean by smart? First, be safe! Especially during winter, you don’t want to risk the chance of slipping while you’re climbing around your storage unit. Leave yourself a path to get around your unit easily. Pack heavy items on the bottom to decrease the risk of injury from a heavy box falling.

Give Yourself Extra Time

Did you know elevated roadways like bridges and overpasses are actually the first to freeze in Texas? This means when you’re driving to access your self-storage in Mesquite, TX, you’ll need to provide yourself some extra time to avoid disaster.

Drive slow, and walk slower! Even if you’re in a rush, snow and hail can make the ground extra slippery, and it’s better to take a few extra minutes to be safe while accessing your self-storage.

Take Safety Precautions to Avoid Slipping

Even though Texas is known for sunshine, we can get an average of 35-40 days per year where the temperature drops to freezing or below. So to be sure you’re safely accessing your storage unit in Mesquite, TX, you’ll want to have a few extra things ready during winter.

If the ground is frozen and you need to access your unit, bring along some rock salt to both melt the ice and provide you traction to avoid slipping.

Also, since we often get rain in the wintertime, be sure to bring a mat with traction to leave inside your Mesquite, TX, self-storage unit. That way, you can wipe excess water or sleet from your feet to prevent slipping. It will also help keep your unit clean.
