Storing pushchair - no room in our hallway!

We've just moved into a new house and there's no room in our hall/downstairs for our pushchair (baby jogger City Select). DH reckons an outdoor plastic storage cupboard could be the best thing but I was just reading that this makes pushchairs go mouldy. Having just invested in a brand new pushchair I want to do our best to look after it!

Car boot is the obvious option but DH often uses the car for work so there's a reasonable chance we won't have constant access to it, plus we have onstreet parking so not super convenient to negotiate baby and 2 year old on the pavement outside.

Anyone else been in this situation? Would love some advice smile

What's the ground floor layout like? Can you use the rear entrance and leave it in the kitchen or dining room?

Do you have an under stairs cupboard anywhere?

I have had a pushchair go mouldy in a outdoor store.

Pushchair hook so you can put it on the wall? We've just bought one for our small hall

I think I saw someone who had their select seats on hooks on the back of a door and slid the chassis behind the sofa?

It's quite small downstairs (at the moment - pending building project in ~6 months), entrance way with stairs almost straightaway, leading to living room/dining room on left and teeny kitchen straight ahead! There isn't a cupboard under the stairs (small outside cubby instead) and there's no porch.

I could wheel it into the dining room... not ideal but better than outside in the rain (we're in Yorkshire!) or mouldy in a cupboard.

Researching pushchair hooks but we've had a bit of a job putting up the stairgates this weekend, walls not super cooperative confused

Could you get a garden store for the frame and bring the seats in? My friend used to leave her frame outside (it did bugger the wheels eventually but they were air pump ones- can't remember what the select is)

We had a City Select and we bought one of those bathroom door coat hooks - the metal ones with several hooks. The two seats hung on these hooks on the hall side of the bathroom door, and the chassis we just slid to one side with the wheels popped off.
However, you can buy proper pushchair hooks to hang pushchairs on the wall and the City Select would hang very flat and out of the way.
I wouldn't put the seats outside. The chassis would probably be ok.
