You’ve got the pram, but now you need to think about where you are going to store it. This guide should help you find the right outdoor pram storage for your pram and outdoor space.
Luckily, most prams can be folded up or taken apart for ease of storage. You can practice doing this before buying the pram, just to make sure it won’t be a problem for you when you bring it home.
When contemplating the best place for your pram to be kept, you should consider somewhere dry and secure. If your pram is consistently kept in a damp area, you run the risk of mould and rust developing over time.
The issues that come with a damp environment can be easily avoided, a reasonable solution would be to store your pram indoors. However, trying to find a location in your house where it can be stored can often prove a challenge. Hallways, closets and even car boots are commonly used by parents for this purpose. Some people even store prams by hanging them over doors.
Your pram should not be left somewhere where it could be a tripping hazard. You also don’t want to leave it somewhere where it might be stolen, such as in a communal hallway.

Is it safe to store my pram outside?
Sometimes you have no choice but to leave your pram outside. There may not be any room for your pram in a shop or tearoom. One of the main issues with leaving your pram outside is the risk of theft. To stop this from happening, you could opt for a lock, or even remove part of your pram to deter others from taking it.
Leaving your pram outside for any length of time will expose it to the elements. If your pram is made of steel – even stainless – rust will happen faster than if it is made from other materials. Some materials are more resilient than others, such as carbon fibre. This is a material which will never rust, but it is likely to be reflected in the cost of your pram.
You should also try not to leave your pram outside when it is cold, as it will become cold to the touch and uncomfortable for the baby.
Home insurance, although covering your personal belongings in your premises, will not cover the theft of your pram if it is stolen from another location. This is something you will need to consider.
How do I store my pram outside?
If you are leaving your pram outside, you should make sure that it is not obstructing entrances, fire escapes or pavements. Take security measures such as using a lock or getting insurance for your personal belongings. If you need to store your pram outside for a longer period, such as in your garden, it will need to be covered. A tarpaulin sheet is better than nothing, however, it will not efficiently do the job of protecting your pram from the elements.
By far, the best way to protect your pram if it must be left outside is by using outdoor pram storage.
