Enclosed Storage and Peace of Mind

Many people view their boats and RVs as investments. Obviously, they will still want to use them when they go on vacations. Of course, a home is an investment as well, so investments can certainly have a wide range of practical uses. When people make use of enclosed storage, they will be able to protect their boats and RVs in a way that is truly appropriate for investments of all kinds.

Enclosed Storage and Peace of Mind

Storage Options

Uncovered storage is a great option for many people. However, there are other people who really will only feel comfortable if they have access to enclosed storage when they’re trying to maintain their RVs and boats. Party Barn Boat & RV Storage has options for covered, uncovered, and enclosed storage available, so people will be able to choose what works for them.

Enclosed storage protects boats and RVs from sunlight, snow, rain, and many other factors related to the weather. When it comes to vehicles and other forms of property, some aspects of deterioration are absolutely preventable. Both enclosed and covered storage can help to keep boats and RVs new for an extended period of time.

Choosing the Best Option

Many people might feel better if they’ve picked covered or enclosed storage for their RVs or boats. They might feel as if they’re protecting their investments more effectively. All vehicles will eventually break down over time but having some control over the rate at which vehicles age can make all the difference in the world for a lot of people. Covered, uncovered, and enclosed storage are all good options. For some people, enclosed storage might be a particularly good choice.

Boat Trailer Storage: Spend More Time Boating

Towing and unloading…towing and unloading. The actually boating part of the trip is what you want to spend most of your time doing. Instead, you lug your boat to the lake, back it down the ramp, dock it, get back into your truck, drive it to the parking lot with the trailer, then go back to your boat and finally started enjoying your day.

Boat Trailer Storage: Spend More Time Boating

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get rid of some of these steps and begin your boating excursions much faster? There is a way: utilize boat trailer storage, and leave your trailer close, but out of your way.

Consider a Marina

There is no doubt that storing your boat in the water results in increased monthly costs. But also consider the cost (and time spent) of driving a trailer every single time you want to use your boat. That is no cheap endeavor either. But docking your boat in a marina allows you immediate access to the boat. And the most logical choice for your trailer? Store it at nearby Party Barn Boat & RV Storage.

Party Barn offers safe, secure storage enabling you to quickly pull your boat out of the water when you need to, without requiring you to return home for your trailer. Then, when it is time to pull your boat out for maintenance or at the end of the season, or for an emergency, you didn’t have to be psychic and know beforehand that you should drive to the marina with your trailer.

Enjoy Your Time on the Lake

The most important part of deciding to store your trailer is how much time do you want to spend boating and how much time do you want to spend dinking around with your trailer? Have peace of mind with the secure options offered at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage. They also offer a gate and code entry system for extra protection. Whether you need quick access uncovered storage or desire more protection with our covered or enclosed options, check us out! Contact us to find the perfect storage choice for your boat!

Use Boat Storage to Stay on Top of Maintenance

It’s the end of the boating season, and now is the perfect time to consider all of the maintenance you have been wanting to get done on your boat but have not had the time to get around to it. Even if you are not winterizing just yet, preventive maintenance is an excellent habit to get into.

Use Boat Storage to Stay on Top of Maintenance

But pulling your boat out of the water and then putting it back in again…and then repeating this process after every maintenance job is finished, just wastes time and money. Consider our boat storage options to solve this problem. Here are four maintenance tasks you might be considering undertaking and how our storage options can make it so much easier.

1. Bottom Painting

Your craft weathers harsh conditions on a daily basis. Algae accumulate, slowing your boat down and clogging important engine parts, propellers, and more. Pull your boat out and store it with us in one of our uncovered, enclosed, or covered options and then take your time arranging for the painting to begin. You don’t have to worry about trying to time pulling it out and then bringing it to the painting location.

2. Sprucing up the Fiberglass

It is darn hard to wax your boat when it is in the water. But pulling it out gives you access to every angle, allowing you to wax and polish to your heart’s content. And, if you do bottom painting first, then you will have one fine looking vessel to put back into the water come boating season.

3. Hull Openings

When you pull your boat out, you can use this opportunity to check for water tightness. You simply cannot check these below water hull openings when the boat is in the water. Additionally, confirming the proper operation and functioning of all engine and exhaust openings will help keep your engine running smoothly. Also, checking the stuffing box for leakage is another important step to take. Speed and depth sensors are often neglected too.

4. Rigging Check

Another maintenance check is directed towards sailboats. It concerns rust. It is important to check where the rigging and stays are attached to the chain plates. This is yet one more maintenance act that is just easier to check off your list when the boat is on dry ground.

This list hardly covers all the maintenance task you might undertake for your boat. But it does help you get started.

We’ve Got You Covered…or Uncovered

Regular maintenance of your boat is critical to long-term usage. But a boat in the water limits the amount of work you can do on it. Easy access to those hard-to-reach areas is solved by pulling the boat out of the water. But sometimes, you are not ready to take on all the projects you need to do. When you utilize our storage options, you are free to arrange your maintenance tasks on your time, all while knowing that your craft is safe and protected in our facility.

Party Barn Boat & RV Storage also offers a gate and code entry system for extra protection. Whether you need quick access uncovered storage or desire more protection with our covered or enclosed options, check us out! Contact us to find the perfect storage choice for your boat!

4 Advantages of Covered Storage

If you’re looking for the safest option when it comes to storing your expensive boat or RV, covered storage is the way to go. It protects your significant investment from the elements, prevents interior and exterior damage, provides invaluable peace of mind and helps preserve the environment, so you can enjoy the open road or water for years to come.

4 Advantages of Covered Storage

  • Sun Damage Prevention: When the harsh sun beats down, it can do irreversible damage to your stored boat or RV. Covered storage protects from the paint peeling, molding damage and interior fading caused by prolonged sun exposure and excessive heat.
  • Tire Damage Prevention: When RV and boat trailer tires are exposed to consistent heat and humidity changes, it can cause premature cracking. This is especially true when they’re stored for long periods of time. Covered storage makes tires less vulnerable and prevents pricey tire replacements down the road.
  • Security: Using covered storage for your boat or RV makes the risk of theft or vandalism next to zero. Covered facilities are secured 24 hours a day and help to ensure the absolute safety of your boat or RV.
  • Environment: Covered storage protects the earth and water from the oil and fuel leaks that come with RV and boat storage. Even a little leak can do a lot of damage, and covered storage helps protect the earth as well as your prized possession.

Boat Storage For Your Protection

So, the summer’s end is upon you. It’s been a great one, because as it so happens, you are the proud owner of a boat. This sure can make for some quality family time, as well as has given you the opportunity to invite along some friends. You may have even made a few new friends along the way.

Boat Storage For Your Protection

During the summer, you likely have stored your boat at a campsite, or on a boat dock where you typically direct access to the water. But let’s be realistic. More of these places are just not up and running year-round. They are seasonal.

With that, you are left with a dilemma. Where will your boat storage be for the winter? For most of us, there isn’t room at our place of residence. The fact is that most families already have more than one vehicle in the driveway, and that’s if you are lucky enough to have a driveway. There isn’t enough space to add a boat. In most states, it’s illegal to park a boat on the street, unless it’s attached to a vehicle. Now, who has time to attach and detach the boat every time they have somewhere to go?

We have your solution. At Party Barn Boat & RV Storage, we have you covered. You can choose what works best for you. We offer enclosed , covered  and uncovered storage. We sit on five acres of property, so we are able to house plenty of boats. We are only three miles in either direction of Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard,  so you don’t have to travel far to get back on the water when you bring your boat back out of storage.

Please contact us for more information on what we offer. We are happy to house your boat until you are ready to enjoy another summer on the waters.

Covered Storage For Your Motor Vehicles

Sometimes life throws you a loop and you need to find storage for your vehicles. That can range from RVs to motorcycles, to ATVs, and boats. There are lots of circumstances that bring about the need for covered storage for your vehicles. Here are a few that are common at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage.

Covered Storage For Your Motor Vehicles

  • A Move: Sometimes people live in a place where they have the space to store these extra “toys” and when they have to move, they lose that ability. Whether it is an HOA that doesn’t allow them to park their RV or they simply don’t have enough space anymore, they have to find a new home for their vehicles.
  • A New Purchase: Often customers at Party Barn never intend to store their boat or RV at home. They knew they would be finding a storage solution for their boat or RV when they bought it.
  • The Eye Sore: Some people love their boats, RVs, and ATVs but simply don’t want to see them parked in their yard or driveway. Those vehicles are for adventures and don’t look good outside of their homes.
  • Apartment/Condo Living: Some of our customers live in apartments and still want to have a boat or RV. Just because they don’t have a place to park it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have one!

These are some common reasons people rent covered or uncovered storage for their vehicles at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage. If any of these situations applies to you, contact us today to see about renting a space to store your vehicles.

6 Things To Look For When Searching For Boat Storage

When you aren’t out on the lake enjoying your boat, dry storage is a great option. If you’re looking for a boat storage facility, you’ll want to make sure to choose a quality facility to store your expensive investment. Below are six things to look for when searching for boat storage.

T6 Things To Look For When Searching For Boat Storage

  • Excellent Customer Service: Excellent customer service. If you have questions or need assistance, you’ll want someone around to help you. You should know the facility’s customer service policies, and don’t accept vague answers about this.
  • Security: Storage security is extremely important. The more security features a storage facility has, the better. You’ll want to look for gated access that requires a code. Code-protected gated access is one of the most effective security measures for storage facilities. Other positive signs are video surveillance systems, alarm systems, and on-site guards.
  • Lighting: Well-lit areas are not only more secure. They also make it easier to access boats after dark. To be sure you may want to check this feature out in the evening to confirm it meets your standard.
  • Credentials: Ask about any specific local affiliations, awards, or licensing the company has. The more credentials they have, the more confidence you can have in the company’s quality.
  • Location: If possible, choose a boat storage facility that is close to the water where you’ll use the boat. Long-distance boat towing can cost more in the long run.
  • Good Curb Appeal: This indicates the property receives adequate maintenance and upkeep, which is a sign of quality and security. The area a storage facility resides in is also important.

Owning an RV, boat, or both means you can get out and explore nature. It also means having to find a place to keep them when they aren’t in use. While you may have the perfect spot on your property right now, you may need to store them at some point. Although enclosed storage is ideal, there are three times that uncovered storage is perfect for your RV or Boat.

Uncovered Storage is Perfect for Your RV or Boat

Short Notice – Short Term

Perhaps your family is planning a wedding, family reunion or other event. The event was going to be held elsewhere, but there’s been a change in venue. Your property is perfect, except for the RV parked out back and the boat off to the side. The perfect way for you to be the hero is to rent an uncovered, outdoor storage area for a few days. Your boat and RV will be safely locked in and available for you anytime you are ready to take them home.

When You’re Moving

Moving, whether it’s across town, or across the country, is a tough task. There are so many things to do, inside and outside your old home, and the new one. Make life just a little bit easier during this difficult time and move your RV and boat into an uncovered temporary storage space. Once you get settled in to your new place, you can either take them home, or continue to store them.

If You’re Selling It

Posting a listing on social media, advertising an RV or boat for sale is an excellent way to attract buyers. It can also be a dangerous proposition. Meeting a stranger at your home may not be the best idea. However, if you rent an uncovered outdoor storage space for a few days, or weeks, you have the perfect place to bring customers. Your personal code will let you in the gate whenever it’s convenient for you.

Check out other things around the storage facility and determine whether or not the area is secure enough for your boat.
  • “Is There Easy Access?” You will want to know if the facility allows for easy access to your boat. Stop by the facility to ask any questions about accessibility and get a feel for how they operate. You want a place that safely stores your boat while also making it convenient for you to access it.
