We’ve compiled some tips and tricks for how to store a stroller that may help simplify this process for parents out there with limited storage space or living situations.
Storing a stroller can be tricky. There are many factors to consider, like how big your house is and how often you use the stroller. If you live in an apartment or small townhouse, it will be harder to store a large stroller than if you have a lot of space at home.
However, there are ways to make storing your baby’s mobility device easier no matter where you live!
Steps and Tips on Storing Stroller at Home
Step 1. Store a stroller in the basement or garage to free up valuable storage space. If you have an unfinished basement, this could serve as great under-the-stairs storage for your child’s device.
The garage may be another option if there is plenty of room and it doesn’t get too hot in the summertime! It can also provide some peace of mind when storing other items that are important to parents such as winter coats, bikes, lawn equipment, etc.
Step 2. Place the back wheel on a stool so it won’t touch anything else in your home – even though many people store their strollers with both wheels touching each other directly on the ground which will then cause damage over time from how much wear and tear occurs between the two wheels.
Step 3. Place the stroller in an area that is not too humid and with very little temperature fluctuation to avoid rusting – you may want to store a towel or mat underneath it if you have floorboards, just in case your floors are subject to moisture buildup from how much humidity there is on any given day.
Step 4. Store the umbrella away from direct sunlight as UV rays can cause damage over time which will lead to cracking of the plastic parts. This might also include storing outdoor toys such as playhouses, sandboxes, etc., somewhere else like under a porch or patio for this reason as well!
Step 5. Keep all moving parts clipped together so nothing gets lost when transporting items inside or outside of your home; these include the wheels and storage basket.
Step 6. Never store a stroller in an attic or garage, as this could cause damage to it from extreme temperature changes over time! And don’t forget that when you’re ready to bring your stroller back out into use again, give it a good wipe down with soap and water so any dirt on there doesn’t get transferred onto your next little one who will be pulling themselves up and rubbing their hands all over everything… how much fun would THAT be?!
Bring the frame inside after each trip outside; storing outside can lead to rusting of metal parts which are never good for anyone.
How do I protect my trunk from a stroller?
The best way to protect the trunk from a stroller is by removing the wheels and storing them in an area that doesn’t expose it to water (e.g., garage or attic). This will also allow you more room for storage when not in use which can be helpful if space is at a premium!
How do you attach a stroller to a roof rack?
The easiest way to attach a stroller is by using straps that loop around the frame and connect with hooks. This will give you more flexibility when adding other items on top of the roof rack as well, such as bikes or kayaks!
How do I store my stroller during travel?
When travelling with your kids in tow, it can be difficult to find space for all their gear – but fortunately, there are ways to both save space and keep things organized. Here’s how:
Step 1. Store bulky items like car seats up high so they’re out of reach; this also keeps them from getting dirty or dusty while driving down unpaved roads! You’ll want to use bungee cords instead of rope because it will stretch when you pull it.
Step 2. Place your stroller in the trunk and strap a bungee cord around each side of the frame, hooking them onto hooks on either end. This will give you more flexibility when adding other items on top of the roof rack as well, such as bikes or kayaks!
Step 3. When possible, store heavier objects like car seats towards the back where they’ll be less likely to take up space that could otherwise be used by people sitting down. If there’s room for passengers in front but not behind, stack lighter luggage under the empty seat(s). For example, if rear seating is available then place any bags with wheels (e.g., roller board bag) between passenger seats so they can roll.
Step 4. Use the straps on your stroller to cinch it down by pulling them around each side of the frame, hooking them onto hooks on either end. This will give you more flexibility when adding other items on top of the roof rack as well, such as bikes or kayaks!
How do I store my stroller indoors?
Be sure to remove all of your child’s belongings before bringing the frame into your home; this includes snacks, toys, and anything else they might have put on board during their journey outdoors.
If possible, try folding up any seats and placing them underneath so they don’t take up floor space while stored away. And as always (what were we saying again?), give it a good wipe down with your favourite cleaner before bringing it inside.
