Self Storage: The Next Stop on Your Band's Tour

Guitarist jams with band on stage during a gig

Along the road to top billing, you pick up extra guitars, drums, and brass. No one in the band has room for it all back home, but you need a place to park everything between gigs. It's time to set up a permanent staging area in Tamarac, FL with convenient, affordable storage units.

Protect Your Investment

Whether you strum an acoustic guitar or blow an alto sax, you want to give that investment as much protection as possible. Climate-controlled self storage insulates band equipment and expensive electronics from Florida's heat and humidity. Modern facilities offer high-tech, on-site security, and you can lease a drive-up unit for quick access between shows. If you'd rather stay inside, available push carts make it easy to haul heavy gear back and forth.

Preserve Equipment Long-Term

The best storage units in Florida can't take care of your equipment if you don't take care of it first. Always clean each piece before putting it away, and use these long-term storage tips for your valuable musical instruments.

  • Guitars: Relax neck tension by tuning strings down a few notes.
  • Brass: Protect casings, bearings, and valves with a coat of heavy oil.
  • Drums: Reduce head tension top and bottom by half.
  • Pianos: Wrap legs and pedals in heavy padding.

Use Smart Storage Strategies

Prep instrument cases for extended self storage by lining them with acid-free paper. Hit high notes of extra safety by adding silica pouches. Set up wood pallet stages that keep equipment elevated a few inches off the floor. If you're doubling down on the unit with furniture storage, cushion cases between soft surfaces like mattresses and sofas.

Keep It Ready to Rock

Get everyone in the band on board with a regular sound check in the unit. You don't need to turn anything on. Just take a minute to open cases and look for any cracks, discoloration, or mold. Change out sheets draped over equipment to ward off dust, and enjoy knowing it's all ready to rock when you need to roll.
