Storing a Snowblower in Self Storage

Published on 2/17/2023

The snow season will be ending in the next coming months and thus you will need to store your snowblower until next winter. However, do you lack the space to store your snowblower in your garage or shed? If so, we at Elyria Storage have the space available for your snowblower. To ensure that your snowblower is ready to use for the next season and safely stored in our facility, there are a few steps that should be taken before placing it in storage.

1.      Do a General Check on Your Snowblower

Check and replace your engine oil if needed. Make sure all the parts are in working order and replace any if needed. Tighten any loose bolts or nuts.

2.    Empty the Gas Tank

Although fuel stabilizers can be used, for safety reasons, our storage facility doesn’t allow machines with gas to be stored in our units. Thus, the gas will need to be drained from the snowblower before storing.

3.    Clean Your Snowblower

Clean off the dirt, snow, and salt to prevent corrosion or rust buildup using a mild soap solution and a warm cloth or a power washer on the low setting.

4.    Lubricate the External Parts

Spray the external parts with a rust prevention spray to prevent corrosion.

Taking the steps described above will ensure that your snowblower is ready for the next season and in working condition for years to come.
