Some people love winter, it’s a time to go skiing, ice skating and you can’t beat hot cider. Others don’t like it so much. It’s too cold and icy and travel can be difficult. Probably the biggest obstacle in the winter is snow removal. Even people who look forward to winter know that snow removal can be a chore. But your life can be easier when you have the proper snow removal equipment nearby. This can mean anything from a shovel on up to a large snow plow. At this time of year, you want to keep your snow removal equipment nearby and it’s important that you store it properly. Whether you need to store equipment for residential use or your business, A.B. Richards can help.

Storing Shovels and Melting Agents
One thing that’s usually certain for almost everyone is that they own usually more than one type of shovel. And very often the shovels you own are different types. Some handles are longer or designed to ease back pain. Whatever type of shovel you use, the construction company website Blue Sky Builders suggests using a rack to store your shovels. That gives you easy access to them inside your portable storage containers and you can store other items behind them. If you’re storing rock salt or ice melt, make certain that the bags are closed and haven’t been punctured. If you are storing open bags, try to keep them in air tight containers and avoid humidity.
Snow Blowers and Plows
It’s important to make certain you change the oil and spark plugs when starting up snow blowers for the first time this winter and keep extra parts stored too if you use it often. If you’re storing a snow plow attachment, SnoWay, which manufactures snow removal equipment, suggests removing the plow from your vehicle and keeping it in your storage container. Clean the plow and grease movable parts. It’s also a good idea to remove rust and use spray-on touch-up paint to keep the plow in optimal shape.
