We offer climate-controlled self-storage options to ensure that your valuable exercise equipment is preserved properly, so it’ll be ready for action when you are.

Steps For Preparing Exercise Equipment for Self Storage

Refer to the Owner’s Manual for your each of your pieces of exercise equipment to ensure that any specific recommendations for storage are met. Gather together the manuals and any extra parts or accessories so they can be stored with the equipment.


Clean the Equipment Carefully so that your exercise equipment will be ready to go when you bring them out of storage. Remember to oil any mechanical components of your equipment that require lubrication. Make sure that there is no moisture on any upholstered or leather parts of the equipment to prevent mold and mildew growth.


Cover Exercise Equipment with canvas or other breathable fabric when in self-storage. It is best if the equipment is elevated on top of a heavy canvas or plastic tarp as well. This will prevent the accumulation of moisture, dust, and debris on your equipment, ensuring many years of use for your exercise gear.


Store Heavy Weight Items on the Bottom when you are organizing your self-storage unit. For the purposes of safe and secure storage, make sure that heavy items such as barbell weights, kettlebells, and medicine balls are securely stored on the ground or bottom shelf. When it comes to those heavy items, go low - gravity is your friend!

At Affordable Family Storage, our climate-controlled facilities will manage temperature, humidity, and dust, so you can rest assured that your valuable exercise equipment will be preserved properly.
