Storage Options for Your Summer “Toys”: Boats, RVs, Jet Skis, and More!

This summer are you planning on spending hours of fun in the sun on your new boat or Jet Ski? Maybe you’ve planned for some long distance road trips in your new RV? But, have you planned where you will safely store your new summer toys between uses or in the off season? There are a variety of storage options for your boats, Jet Skis, trailers, RVs, campers, and all your other summer toys. You’ll want to weigh all the pros and cons of each type of storage option before you decide which is best for your situation. For example, while storing your boat and additional watercraft at a marina may be convenient, it is also expensive.

 

Home Garage:

Pros

  • No storage fees
  • Protected from the elements
  • Secure from theft and vandalism
  • Convenient access

Cons

  • Takes up valuable space
  • Insects and pests can cause damage

 

Driveway or Backyard:

Pros

  • No storage fees
  • Convenient access

Cons

  • Neighborhood covenants may prohibit parking your RV or boat outside
  • Exposed to the elements
  • Vulnerable to theft and vandalism

 

Outdoor Storage Facility:

Pros

  • Often the least expensive option at a storage facility
  • Security options provided by facility 

Con

  • Exposed to the elements
     

Covered Storage Facility:

Pros

  • A compromise between indoor and outdoor storage
  • Security options provided by facility 
  • Protected by roof or awning

Cons

  • Exposed to the elements (while roof or awning offers more protection than outdoor storage, it will not completely protect your items from extreme weather conditions)

 

Indoor Storage Facility:

Pros

  • Security options provided by facility
  • Protected from the elements

Cons

  • Size (a large boat or RV may not fit)
  • Cost (indoor storage is probably the most expensive storage option. However, you will save money on future repairs)

 

What to look for in a self-storage facility:

  • Security: look for a facility that is fully secured and well lit. At Storage Post, our facilities offer security features such as video surveillance, electronic gate access, and alarmed storage units.
