The Benefits of Winter Storage in Erie, PA

While 2020 has been a difficult year, we can all agree that this summer blessed us with some great weather. As we all know, the season has come to an end; fall is upon us, and Winter will be here before we know it. According to The Weather Channel, Erie could be seeing temperatures drop to the 40s, accompanied by some precipitation as early as October. We are likely to see temperatures in the 30s as early as November 7th this year.

Birkmire knows that winter can be hard on some of your favorite possessions. Your patio furniture that brings about laughter and friendship during the summers, the motorcycle that gives you the rush of fresh air you needed, even your children’s bicycles that get them around the neighborhood and out of your hair. Have you thought about storage for those items that you aren’t going to be in use until next April? If not, don’t worry; Birkmire already has you covered.


Birkmire’s Seasonal Storage Units| Storage Capabilities for Winter 2020 – 2021

Birkmire offers a multitude of storage options to fit your needs for this upcoming winter season. We are perhaps best known for our Big Box Storage; these 5’ x 8’ x 8’ containers are perfect for clearing out the garage to make room for your vehicle this winter. These units also act as time-savers for our customers. All you have to do is give us a call, and we will bring the unit to your desired location. You load the container with all the things you won’t be needing this winter, then let us know when to come to take it back to our warehouse for storage. If we can help you save a day of running back and forth from a storage unit, we are more than willing to do so.

Sometimes, the 5’ x 8’ x 8’ containers just aren’t enough. Thankfully, our traditional storage units come in three sizes. We just added the 8’ x 10’ units to our collection along with our 8’ x 20’ and 8 x 40’ units. All of these units will allow you to truly free up space in your garage to ensure your vehicle is out of the elements this winter. Our 8’ x 20’ & 8’ x 40’ units are anchored at our headquarters (7400 Birkmire Drive Fairview, PA 16415) whereas the 8’ x 10’ units are mobile. Easy access to these 8’ x 20’ and 8 x 40’ units is available 24 hours a day. Our 5’ x 8’ and 8’ x 10’ units require 48 hours notice for access.
