Storage is an important aspect of a boat and RV ownership. While covered and uncovered storage offers an appropriate space and some protection, the best option to ensure the safety and durability of your boat is enclosed storage. Before venturing time and money, it’s important to learn what to look for in a quality storage facility.
4 Great Aspects of Enclosed Storage
Good lighting not only discourages trespassers, but it also allows easier 24-hour access to an enclosed storage unit. While nighttime access is not a regular occurrence, the ability and option to check, access, or remove your boat or RV at any time, day or night, is a must.
2) Exceptional Security
Fully enclosed storage units offer the highest level of security due to the fact that it’s easier to control all facility aspects including access points and environmental dangers. Generally, in enclosed storage units, access is limited to the key or code holder. It also negates the possibility of trespassers simply “jumping the fence”.
A facility that utilizes security cameras or a full CCTV system (closed-circuit television) is also an indicator of exceptional security. If a unit has a break-in, CCTV offers a great resource to identify the culprit.
The ability to control harsh environmental elements during winter months will determine the longevity of your boat or RV. Winterization such as shrink wrapping boats or using antifreeze will help avoid water leaks, hull damage, and mold growth, yet storage plays a lead role as well. Some facilities offer temperature controlled units and others offer year-round access, even in winter storms, heavy rain, and cold temperatures.
4) Variety of Storage Sizes and Styles
While standard storage sizes usually meet most needs, choosing a facility that offers a wide variety of sizes and styles offers more flexibility. If, down the road, you sell, exchange, or buy a new boat or vehicle, having the option to stay with a trusted storage facility is ideal. Building a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with a storage facility is important.
