"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Check out some popular boat storage features:

  • Access any time: Want the flexibility of retrieving your boat any moment of the day? Your neighbors understand. Book a McCalla boat storage unit that offers daily access.
  • Security: Make sure your boat has the most secure storage possible with a listing that offers security features like a padlock, 24/7 surveillance, security cameras, or an access code.
  • Read these tips for how to store a boat long-term:

  • Make any essential repairs.
  • If you go with wet boat storage, the battery should be left on board and connected. If you're opting for dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery.
  • Flush the engine and store it vertically, if possible.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Use a protective spray on the vinyl.
  • For long-term boat trailer storage, the wheels should be put on wood blocks to prevent tire damage.
  • Put a vented cover on or wrap your boat, if you go with outdoor storage, which you may find at your local boating store. You might also check REI, located at 335 Summit Blvd, Birmingham, for other boating accessories.

    You should winterize your boat, as McCalla temperatures can get below 35 in the winter. First, flush and drain the engine, and keep it from corroding by adding lubricant. Drain the fuel lines or, if keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. Replace the engine filters and check belts, hoses, clamps, and the oil. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Remove moisture by cleaning and wiping down the outside and inside of the boat. Last, plug exhaust outlets to prevent rodents from entering.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. McCalla's high humidity in the winter months can increase the odds of mold and mildew developing in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Climate-controlled boat storage provides the best protection from high humidity.

    Insurance is suggested for boat storage near McCalla. Typically, renter's or homeowner's insurance should cover any damage or theft while your boat is in storage, but check your policy to confirm.
