"Communication was very good and the host was more than happy to answer my questions. The storage area was too tight to get my boat in, (although other boats were parked I have no idea how they got there). All in all it was a good experience and I will continue looking for another space."

Types of Boat Storage

Living in Ann Arbor, Michigan offers the unique opportunity to store your watercraft with a variety of options. In addition to covered storage, boat owners may want to consider indoor, outdoor, and other storage options for their boating needs.

  • Indoor storage typically involves renting a private garage or unit to store your boat or watercraft away from the elements in a secure, climate-controlled environment.
  • Outdoor storage involves parking or storing your boat or watercraft in an open lot, such as a parking lot or park. Outdoor storage is less secure but often more affordable than indoor storage.
  • Covered storage involves keeping your boat or watercraft in an open-air covered structure, such as a carport. Covered storage provides some protection from the elements while still allowing you to access your boat or watercraft.

Choosing Boat Storage

When looking for a covered storage unit for a boat or other watercraft in the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan, there are several important considerations to make.

  • Location: Choose a storage unit that is located close to the water, as well as convenient to access and close to home.
  • Size: Make sure the storage unit is large enough to fit the boat and trailer.
  • Security: Ensure that the storage facility is well-maintained with sturdy construction and secure locks.
  • Natural Elements: Protect the boat or watercraft from rain, snow, sun, and other natural elements.
  • Other Vehicles: Confirm that the storage unit is accessible for other vehicles such as a car or truck.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent covered boat storage in Ann Arbor, Michigan, there are several factors to consider. During the peak summer months, the average high temperature is around 82°F (28°C) with high levels of humidity, while the peak winter months can see temperatures as low as 20°F (-7°C). Covered boat storage provides protection from the elements and helps protect against damage caused by the sun, wind, and rain. Additionally, covered boat storage can prevent excess moisture from seeping in, reducing the risk of corrosion and the growth of mildew.

For optimal protection, additional protective measures should be taken such as using a boat cover and removing all excess moisture from the interior of the boat. This can help protect your boat from the harsh Michigan winters and the humid summers and ensure your boat stays in the best condition.
