I Use My RV Part-Time, Do I Need to Keep It Insured While In Storage?

Recreational Vehicles can be an expensive asset, and most RV and boat enthusiasts take care to research and purchase the right insurance coverage to protect their property and liability, just in case something happens. Most of us think about this risk when we’re maneuvering our beautiful rigs through traffic or pulling our boat into a crowded dock. We know a collision is covered, maybe some medical bills and liability for someone else’s property or injury if we make a mistake and hit them, but what about when the season is over and we store away the RV, trailer or boat for the winter?

I Use My RV Part-Time, Do I Need to Keep It Insured While In Storage?

It’s tempting to cancel your coverage as soon as the door on the storage unit slides shut. But wait: there are ways to reduce your cost of insurance while your rig is in storage and still be protected.

Some carriers allow you to change your insurance to allow for times when you don’t need all that coverage you use on the road, like Collision and Bodily Injury. Of course, insurance coverage varies from company to company, and you should absolutely check with your agent, but here are some phrases you can use to get the conversation started.  Call your agent and ask if they can:

  • Suspend Coverage
  • Switch to Comprehensive Only
  • or Have a “Storage Option”

If your carrier does have this option here is what it means for you: your coverage will be reduced to cover only Comprehensive Perils. In a nutshell, Comprehensive covers physical damage to your property for things that happen off the road, like Fire, Vandalism, or Theft. Because they are reducing, or “suspending”, your other coverages, your insurance premium is often cut in half!

Because you choose to store your vehicle with us, you are more protected than if you stored it at your house. However, keeping Comprehensive coverage on your insurance policy while your unit is parked is inexpensive and keep your history of insurance going. Just remember: call your agent to turn your regular coverages back on before you hit the road again next year!

Long-Term Auto Storage Will Keep Your Boat Safe While You’re Abroad

If you are planning on heading on an exciting, long-term trip abroad or if you are going to be moving to another country for a short period of time, you may be wondering what you should do with your vehicle in the meantime. Obviously, shipping your vehicle overseas might not be a very cost-effective option, particularly if you aren’t going to be staying in one place for very long. However, you may not want to sell your vehicle in the meantime, since you probably want to ensure that it’s there when you return and need it. The perfect solution can be to choose long-term auto storage at a storage company.

Long-Term Auto Storage Will Keep Your Boat Safe While You're Abroad

With long-term auto storage, you will know that your vehicle is safe and sound while you are away. It will be kept in a secure area, so you do not have to worry about it being stolen. You can also avoid it being vandalized or broken into.

Additionally, you will not have to worry about paying for long-term parking, nor will you have to leave it outside in your neighborhood, where your HOA might have complaints about it while it’s not being used. Instead, it will be kept in a dedicated place that is designed specifically for this type of purpose.

As you can see, if you are planning on traveling overseas and own a vehicle that you would like to keep safe in the meantime, you have options. If you contact us at Party Barn Boat & RV Storage, we can tell you more about the options that we offer here.

Long-Term Auto Storage: A Good Option When Fixing Up a Classic Car

If you are in the process of fixing up a classic car, you might be excited about finally being able to hit the road with your vehicle. However, you might have a long road of repairs ahead of you before this can happen. If this is the case, then you may want to consider long-term auto storage at a facility like Party Barn Boat & RV Storage. Here’s why.

Long-Term Auto Storage: A Good Option When Fixing Up a Classic Car

Avoid Cluttering Your Garage

If you are like many people, you might have limited space in your garage. If you keep your classic car in there while you’re working on it, you might not have room to park your other (running) vehicles, your lawn equipment or anything else. If you rent a storage unit, however, you’ll have space to store your car, and you’ll be able to use your garage at home normally.

Avoid Problems with Your HOA

If you live in a neighborhood with a homeowner’s association, there might be a rule about having non-running vehicles on your property. By keeping your classic car off-site, you won’t have to worry about running into any problems with your HOA.

Give Yourself Room to Work

You might be planning on spending a lot of time working on your classic car. If you have it in a long-term auto storage facility, you’ll have space to keep tools and parts, and you’ll have room to work on your vehicle as well.

As you can see, if you are working on fixing up a classic car, it can be a good idea to look into long-term auto storage. If this is something that you are interested in, contact us today to find out more about the storage options that we offer!

Storage Centers Protect From Weather Damage

Your mint-conditions classic cars have to stay in great shape to be worth anything.

Storing them in a long-term auto center protects your investment by keeping them out of weather conditions.

Create An Easy-To-Access Display Area

When you’re trying to show off your classic cars to potential sellers, it is important to have a display area that is easy to reach. Long-term auto storage centers are great for this reason as they create a comfortable place for your vehicles. You can show them off to potential buyers all in a line, creating a great showcase that shows off what you got.

Most Centers Are Flexible

Are you looking for a center that is willing to haggle on pricing? Most are willing to discuss discounts, particularly for those who are storing their autos long-term. They are particularly interested in finding people who want to store a large number of autos. For these clients, they will offer deals in order to attract them to store as many vehicles as possible.

So if you’re interested in long-term auto storage as a way of protecting your cherry vehicles, please contact us today. Make sure to ask about our discounts or specials to ensure you get the greatest deal.
