5 Hobbies That Benefit From Self-Storage


Hobbies enrich our lives, but they can also can take up some much needed space in our homes. Whether you’re a shutterbug or snow bunny, you need a place to stash your gear. Storage Etc. allows you to declutter while making the most of your free time. Find out how these five hobbies can benefit from the help of a Storage Etc.

1. Photography

Whether you dabble in digital photography, have fun with film, or practice videography, a storage unit can help protect and organize your equipment. External hard drives, tripods, lenses, and other gear cost a pretty penny, so keep them safe from theft and the elements by placing them in storage. Compass Self Storage provides you with the secure space you need to safeguard your fragile equipment and accessories.

2. The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors is an amazing place but all that gear can take up a lot of square footage. Stash your rods, reels, and other essentials in storage near your home, office, or weekend cabin. If your family enjoys camping and hiking, declutter with help from your nearby storage facility. You’ll appreciate having an off-site place to store tents, cooking gear, hiking boots, backpacks, and other space-hogging supplies.

3. Crafts

If you want to keep clutter at bay by storing your supplies, consider a storage unit. In addition to scrapbooks, stickers, fabric, and foam, your crafting hobby may require room for cutting, sewing, or quilting machines. Whatever your craft of choice, hobby storage keeps your tools of the trade safe and ready for your next project.

4. Cars and Boats

You may need a secure place to park your boat or classic car. With round-the-clock video surveillance, sitewide lighting, fully fenced facilities, and gated access, Storage Etc. provides car and boat enthusiasts with a high level of protection for their valuable investments.

5. Restoration

From clocks to furniture, restoring something can be incredibly rewarding. If you enjoy breathing new life into everything from engines to upholstered furnishings, keep your fabric, tools, and other supplies out of harm’s way— and out of your way— at your local Storage Etc. facility.
