"Michael is amazing to do business with. He is very accommodating, extremely honest and helpful. The space itself is in a quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. There are some tire track pads down to help guide you where the spot is and also could be very helpful if heavy rainfall has occurred. There is a bit of the curb (3-4 inches) that you need to clear to access the spot; so it will be best if your vehicle is not low profile. If you find yourself in need of a rental space to put your vehicle or a new home to put you and your vehicle; I give my highest recommendation to Michael Dagilis/Property Partners Real Estate."

  • Security: Guarantee that your boat has the most secure storage unit possible with a listing that offers security like a padlock, access code, alarm systems, or all-day surveillance.
  • Here's how to prep your boat for long-term storage:

  • Make sure the maintenance tasks are up to date.
  • Leave the battery on board and connected if you're storing your boat in the water. Disconnect the battery if you're opting for dry vs. wet storage.
  • The engine should be flushed out 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 avoid tire damage.
  • Put a vented cover on or wrap your boat, if storing outside, which you may find at your local boating store.

    You should winterize your boat, as Gardner winter temperatures 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 clamps, belts, hoses, and the oil. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the exterior and interior of the boat to remove moisture. Finally, prevent rodents from entering by plugging the exhaust outlets.

    It's best not to store a boat outside in the winter. Gardner's high wintertime humidity can allow mold and mildew to develop in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Rent climate-controlled boat storage to be fully protected against high humidity.

    Insurance is recommended for boat storage near Gardner. Check your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy to confirm that it covers potential damage or theft while your boat is in storage.
