Stop N Stor Goes Bananas for the 2018 Summer

Stop N Stor Storage is proud to partner with The Savannah Bananas as they enter their 3rd season in 2018. The defending champions of the Coastal Plain League went up to bat against the Macon Bacon on May 31st in their season opening game. The stands were packed with an enthusiastic crowd ready to go bananas for baseball with an opening night record breaking attendance 4,3411 people in attendance! It was the 33rd straight sell-out for The Savannah Bananas at Historic Grayson stadium.

The Banana Band, Parking Penguins and of course the 2018 Bananas baseball players were there to greet attendees as they entered the doors of Historic Grayson Stadium. It was an exciting game against the Macon Bacon and The Savannah Bananas excited the crowd with their enthusiastic and engaging entertainment. Everything from presenting the season’s first Baby Bananas to Darius, the dancing first base coach was in true Savannah Banana fun. The addition of Tyler Gray, the Director of Fun for The Savannah Bananas, will present new and interactive entertainment for the 2018 season. The Savannah Bananas slipped in their first home game losing to the Macon Bacon with a final score of 10-6, but were quick to come back when they played in Macon two days later. The Bananas took home a win against the Macon Bacon with an astounding shutout score of 15-0!

As a 2018 partner with The Savannah Bananas, Stop N Stor is excited to get involved with the Savannah, Pooler, Wilmington Island, Thunderbolt and Georgetown communities as well as those traveling from Effingham, Chatham, Bryan, Beaufort and Liberty County areas. As a part of our sponsorship we decided to thank our valued customers with several chances to win tickets to games throughout the season. Customers and members of the Savannah and surrounding communities can enter to win these tickets through our Instagram and Facebook pages as well as through our entry form on our website. We just completed our first giveaway of 10 tickets to 3 lucky winners who are ready to Go Bananas this Friday night!

This sponsorship will also allow us the opportunity to showcase our brand to thousands of members of these communities and interact with the enthusiastic crowd at each game. This Friday we will be setting up a tent outside Grayson Stadium to welcome baseball fans and showcase some of what Stop N Stor has to offer in non-climate and climate-controlled self-storage. The Bananas will take on the Lexington County Blowfish this Friday June 9th at 7:05 pm so be sure to stop by and see us!

We’ve got a lot planned for this year’s season and are excited to Go Bananas with The Savannah Bananas this summer! Stay tuned for more information on our sponsorship with The Savannah Bananas including ticket giveaways, events at Grayson Stadium, Savannah Bananas games, and more!

5 Items to Consider for Climate-Controlled Storage

South Georgia summer temperatures will be here before you know it. Not only does this mean more summer fun-in-the-sun but along with it comes that dreaded high humidity. While Stop N Stor offers both climate and non-climate storage options, many items put in storage require climate control to avoid damage from the heat and humidity. Other items (such as lawn mowers and vehicles – anything that is stored in a garage) may not need to be stored in climate-controlled units. Before deciding whether to rent a climate or non-climate-controlled unit, ask yourself these questions:

  1.      Am I Storing Artwork or Photographs?
    If you’re storing any artwork or photographs climate-controlled storage is essential to avoid damage to these irreplaceable items. The high temperatures and humidity of the low country can cause photographs to blend together or deteriorate over time, permanently damaging your priceless memories. The heat and humidity have the same effect on paintings, prints and other works of art. Keeping these items in a climate-controlled storage unit ensures that your portraits and memories will stand the test of time (and heat).
  2.      Am I Storing Books, Paperwork or Documents?

    Storing paperwork, books or business files in a non-climate-controlled unit can lead to moisture damage from humidity causing paper to warp. Important papers such as tax forms, financial documents and other business documents can take up valuable space in your office. To maximize space in your office or place of business while ensuring these documents maintain their condition, we recommend storing in a climate-controlled storage unit.
  3.      Are my Items Electronic?

    Probably one of the most important things to store in a climate-controlled environment are your electronics. Televisions, sound equipment, computers and monitors should all be placed in climate-controlled storage. Not only are these items costly to replace, but they are extremely vulnerable in drastic temperature changes. Long-term storage in high humidity can cause electronics to accumulate moisture which ultimately damages them both inside and out.
  4.      Is my Furniture Wooden or Leather?
    When exposed to high heat and humidity, wooden and leather furniture like bed frames, nightstands, entertainment centers, tables, couches and chairs can warp, crack or even rot. Climate-controlled storage is essential when storing living room, bedroom and dining room sets along with other wooden or leather furniture. For extra protection, furniture covers are also recommended.
  5.      Are my Items Antiques or Collectibles?
    If you’re storing something that is irreplaceable or of extreme value, you should always consider climate-controlled storage first. Antiques and collectibles may lose their value and may not retain quality if they aren’t stored properly. In order to preserve collectibles and antiques and maintain their best condition, we recommend storing in a climate-controlled unit and if possible with a protective cover.

Climate-controlled storage has benefits for almost all your self-stored items. Although it is more necessary in certain cases than others, extra protection for your items is always a great idea. To find a climate-controlled unit near you, visit one of our ten locations in Hinesville, Savannah, Pooler, Port Wentworth, and Richmond Hill, Georgia as well as our newest location in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Stop N Stor Richmond Hill’s 1st Annual Pictures with Santa Day

On Friday December 8th, Stop N Stor invited members of the community to celebrate the season at their newest location in Richmond Hill. A 10×10 climate controlled storage unit was transformed into Santa’s workshop. The scene was complete with a lit Christmas tree, wrapped presents, cookies and Santa and Mrs. Claus waiting by the fireplace in rocking chairs. Over 50 families came from Richmond Hill, Buckhead, Sterling Lakes, Keller and the surrounding areas to meet and take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Guests received a complimentary print of their picture and were also entered to win one of three $100 Toys R Us gift cards.

We also embraced the season of giving at this event by accepting nonperishable food donations for the United Way of Bryan County. Several food donations were brought in and we were able to provide food for several families in need this holiday season. We were extremely grateful to be able to help members of our local community in Bryan County.

It was truly a joy for the staff to see all the children’s smiling faces and interact with families throughout the community. Thank you to the United Way of Bryan County, Dollface Photo Booth and of course everyone who came out to support this event. We look forward to continuing this event in years to come. Stay tuned for more events hosted by Stop N Stor. We hope you have a happy holiday season!

The Richmond Hill location is our newest addition. It is located near the round about by the Bryan County Administrative Building (96 Veteran’s Memorial Parkway). To make a reservation or learn more about storage services and availability, visit our web page or call
