I had this idea today that I wanted to share regarding storing attractions after the season. This might only apply to smaller haunts. That company called PODS drop off a trailer for you to load right on your property. Once its loaded, they come back and move it for you. And they will store your container. When you need your stuff, they will deliver it back to you. I don't know about the costs but this might be something worth looking into for some haunters.

I agree with Allen, way too pricey. You save yourself a lot of money moving your stuff into a storage unit yourself, and it is still readily available to you if you need to dig something out.

WOW! Yeah I looked them over after reading this. Geeze. Good concept, just not financially acceptable. It might be helpful to post other storage ideas though. So, from what I gather, smaller haunts use storage areas and larger haunts use either the building all year long or they use trailer trucks parked on their properties. Are they any other cheaper ways to store your haunting goodies?

Yeah we looked at this and the cost was way too prohibitive. We used a storage facility for several years, until we were able to secure a permanent building. We still have some storage but we use our own storage building now located close to our shop, and we own a large utility trailer (enclosed) that we use for transporting/production office. The storage facility was running us somewhere around $200/month, and price went up every year.
