Did your kayak fall on top of your car again as you backed out of your garage? Spring is the perfect time to organize your large sports equipment before the summer heat arrives. Schedule time on a Saturday to take inventory of what you have. Decide what needs to go, what can be donated, and what you are keeping. Dedicate a section of your garage which will be specifically for sports-related equipment. Items that you use year-round should be stored so they are easily accessible. Less frequently used or seasonal items should be stored in areas that are not near areas of activity in your garage. Consider some of these ideas so you don’t get “hung up” on how to make the most of your Orlando garage storage space:
- Use the pallet that came with your appliance delivery, sand it down, and give it a coat of shellac. Stand it on its side up against the garage wall and store oars, hockey sticks, and baseball bats. You can easily see what’s stored.
- Before you toss out that old dresser or bookcase, think about repurposing it into a storage area for some of your large sports equipment.
- Bike shops or hardware stores sell bike racks which can mount to the ceiling or a wall in your garage.
- Hang your kayak from a rigging device that can be purchased from any sporting goods store. Prior to storing your kayak, make sure that you rinse it well to remove any salt water that may damage it. Unload any loose gear, leave the hatch straps slack, and remove the soft hatch covers. Cover the cockpit so no bugs or critters decide to set up residence.
