Storing Collectibles in the Garage

We all have that one thing that we just can’t get enough of. Maybe it’s a commonly collected commodity like stamps, or just something that holds personal value for us like birthday cards. Collections like these can easily take over too much of your living space. At Neighborhood Garage Door Service of San Francisco, CA, we’ve put together some tips for storing collectibles in the garage.

Childhood Treasures & Toys

Nostalgia is a powerful force in our culture today. More and more people are hanging on to their toys so they can pass them down to their kids, or sell them later. It’s important to store these valuables properly so that they are still in good shape when that time comes.

Remove any batteries from electronics so that they don’t leak over time. Anything wooden or paper should be sealed up in a zippered bag. Carefully package your treasures in water-tight plastic containers to prevent any damage. Make sure that you don’t put anything in a storage area that’s susceptible to extreme temperatures.

Special Shoes

If you’re the type that has more shoes than days in the month, you may need to relocate some to the garage. Sort through and set aside those shoes that are a favorite part of your collection, but not worn all that often. You may also want to sort them by season and rotate them in and out of storage throughout the year.

Don’t simply box up those special shoes and throw them in a dark closet in the garage. Get a glass-doored cabinet and let those babies shine! Keep the cabinet to the side, and make sure it won’t easily absorb odors and fumes. This will keep them safe, but allow you to enjoy them whenever you come in and out of the house.

Classic Cars

If you collect cars, or even just have one classic car, you need to keep it in the garage for protection. Make sure that your garage stays nice and organized so that you can get your prized ride in and out safely and easily. Always keep a cover on your car to make sure that nothing damages it and to slow its aging.

Get the Right Garage Door

If you’re storing collectibles in the garage, you need to have the right garage door in place to protect it. Get a well-insulated door to keep the inside temperature more tightly regulated. Keep an eye on the weather sealing to prevent rodents from getting in. Make sure that it has a lock so that you can keep it secure from potential break-ins.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
