Three Reasons To Choose Uncovered Storage For Your Boat Or RV

Posted on: 19 July 2016

If you own a boat or an RV, at some point, you are going to need to have them stored when you are not using them. Luckily, there are plenty of storage facilities that offer large enough lots for you to use. This can include both covered and uncovered storage. Here are three reasons to choose uncovered storage:

You Need it Short-Term:

Since covered storage is a bit more expensive, you should choose uncovered storage if you are only going to use the space for a short period of time. Perhaps you are currently remodeling your home and need the extra space where your RV or boat would normally be in order to store other items during the construction. Whatever the case, uncovered storage is definitely best for short term use. 

You Are Moving:

If you are in the process of moving and are going to be selling your old home, choosing uncovered storage is the best way to get your RV or boat out of the way so it does not become a distraction to potential home buyers when looking at your home. On top of this, having your boat or RV stored at a separate location will give you more space for packing and getting other things ready for the move. It can even allow for more space for the moving truck to park. Once you do move into your new home, you can take your time settling in before bringing your RV or boat home. Since this process shouldn't take more than a year, uncovered storage is the best way to make the process as affordable as possible. 

You Want to Sell Your RV or Boat:

If you are looking to sell your RV or boat, you may not want buyers to come to your personal property to take a look at it. Instead, you can have the RV or boat safely stored in an uncovered storage area where buyers can meet you to take a look at it. Since your boat or RV will be safely locked into place at a storage facility (even in an uncovered lot), you can be sure that chance of theft is highly unlikely, especially if you choose to store at a storage facility that offers 24/7 surveillance of the property. 

When you know these three reasons to choose uncovered storage for your boat or RV, you can see why it will be most helpful in your specific situation.


Tips For Moving

When my employer was purchased by another company, I wondered what it meant for my job. Although I was nervous about being let go, I quickly discovered that I was one of their best people. After talking with my new boss, they explained that they needed me to travel around for work to train new departments. Because I didn't have a family, I was the best employee for the job. Unfortunately, the company branches were in worse shape than my employer originally suspected. A two-week business trip quickly turned into six months, and I realized that it might be smarter to move to new areas instead. I have moved 16 times now, and I know what it takes to get the job done.
