What people say about renting boat storage on Neighbor

40 x 10 Unpaved Lot in Tucson, Arizona

Verified Review

"We parked our RV and truck on Orlando's land for several months. He was friendly and accommodating when we arrived, and so easy to work with. He responded the day of to our request, which was helpful given travel plans. He was flexible with where to park on his land, and we felt very welcome. The neighborhood is very calm, and there is a gas station a few minutes down the road which can be helpful if you are storing an RV. Overall, we had a positive first experience with Neighbor and if/when we should need storage in the area, we would certainly work with Orlando again."

"This was the perfect spot for my semi-long term storage need. Broderick is a good man and an excellent host: Polite to a fault, family-oriented, storage area fully prepared and organized, always reasonably quick to respond to communications, and when our schedules didn't synch he made arrangements to have a family member grant me access, as he wasn't going to be available personally. Overall a very good experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Broderick."

"We needed to park our car while we went on an international trip and Ryscha's place worked out to be the perfect spot for us. We were stress free during our trip knowing our vehicle was safe and secure. Ryscha was super helpful in accommodating to our medium-term storage needs and coordinating with her for both drop off and pick up was a breeze. Easily the best host in town!"

  • Make any needed repairs.
  • If you're storing in the water, the battery should be left on board and connected. If you're opting for dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery.
  • Flush out the engine and, if possible, store it in a vertical position.
  • Use fuel stabilizer.

  • For long-term boat trailer storage, the wheels should be put on wood blocks to avoid tire damage.

If you're keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. If not, drain the fuel lines. Replace the engine filters and check the oil, hoses, clamps, and belts. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the outside and inside of the boat to remove moisture. Last, plug exhaust outlets to prevent rodents from entering.

    Although Rio Rico generally has ideal humidity levels in the winter, it's still advised you fully protect your vehicle from winter weather and UV rays. Just rent climate-controlled boat storage.
