antique carEach season brings unique storage needs. During the winter, items commonly kept for play or outdoor use—such as antique cars, recreational vehicles, lawnmowers and patio furniture—must be brought inside to ensure long-term preservation. Below, we share resource links and quick tips to properly store these items. 

1. Antique or Recreational Vehicles 

While recreational and antique vehicles are fun in warmer months, you’ll want to put these toys away as roadways become icy and dangerous. Read the following to ensure that you store your vehicles properly. 

2. Lawnmowers 

Winter is prime time to put your lawnmower in a safe place until the first signs of spring appear. Make certain your lawn mower is storage-ready with these tips:

  • Thoroughly clean the mower and brush off debris.
  • Hose down blades to get rid of remaining grass.
  • Empty the gas tank or add a fuel stabilizer to keep moisture away and protect the engine during long-term storage.

3. Patio Furniture 

Outdoor picnics are no fun buried under a few inches of snow. Bring your furniture indoors once the temperatures start to drop to preserve it for future cookouts.

Proper care for long-term storage depends on material type. In the following posts, we break down what you need to know to protect wicker, wood and metal.

    There are much more that need to be in storage during winter. Swimsuits, outdoor grill, pretty much anything outdoor should be put in storage during winter.
