20 x 10 Unpaved Lot in Marana, Arizona

Verified Review

"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!"

  • Follow these tips for storing a boat long-term:

  • Ensure the maintenance tasks are up to date.
  • If you pick dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery. If you're storing your boat in the water, leave the battery on board and connected.
  • The engine should be flushed and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Use fuel stabilizer.
  • Spray vinyl with a protective spray.
  • For long-term boat trailer storage, put wood blocks under the wheels to prevent tire damage.
  • Use a vented boat wrap or boat cover, if storing outside, which you can find at your local boating store.

    You should winterize your boat, as Thatcher winter temps can get below 35. First, flush and drain the engine, and add lubricant to protect it from corrosion. 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. Clean and wipe down the outside and inside of the boat to remove moisture. Finally, prevent rodents from entering by plugging the exhaust outlets.

    Though Thatcher typically has ideal humidity levels in the winter, it's still suggested you rent climate-controlled boat storage to protect your vehicle from winter weather and UV rays.

    Insurance is highly suggested for boat storage in Thatcher. Your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy should cover potential theft or damage while your boat is being stored.
