What is Neighbor?

In a few words, Neighbor is an online peer-to-peer community that connects those who have extra space with those in need of storage. We love to help our hosts earn extra money and our renters save money. It’s that simple!

We’re on a mission to solve our neighbor’s problems, and that starts with the space issue. Some neighbors have too much, and some have not enough. By building community, working together, and staying neighborly, we are changing the way we think about self-storage.

Boat Storage Types in Melvindale

There are three types of boat storage offered by Neighbor hosts:

  • Indoor boat storage: Indoor boat storage provides the highest amount of protection and security, but keep in mind that it's the most costly boat storage type. Indoor boat storage in Melvindale will do the trick when you need to protect your boat from the elements.
  • Covered boat storage: The best of both worlds, covered boat storage isn't as protective as indoor storage in Melvindale, but it still puts a roof over your boat's helm.

    Climate-Controlled Boat Storage near Melvindale

    Choosing climate-controlled Melvindale boat storage will help keep your boat in tip-top shape. Melvindale experiences humid winters and summers. All that moisture can cause wood finishes to deteriorate and introduce mildew and mold. Not only that, but frigid winter temps and hot summers can cause rust and corrosion and general wear and tear if your boat is stored outside. It's a good idea to use climate-controlled storage in Melvindale when you're not out on the water.

    Boat Storage Near Melvindale: FAQs

    Boat storage prices in Melvindale are $133 on average per month.

    The size of boat storage you need depends on the boat type. For example, Class 2 boats will need at least a 20 X 40 storage unit, while Class A boats may fit in a 10 X 15 storage unit. Remember to measure your boat's clearance if you're renting covered or indoor boat storage.

    You can find places to store a boat all throughout Melvindale, in neighborhoods like Corktown, New Center Detroit, or Capitol City. Access the list view, use the map, or enter your zip code to find convenient boat storage options throughout your community.

    Here are the amenities your neighbors might offer:

  • 24-Hour access: Rent boat storage in Melvindale that has access 24/7, perfect for getting to your boat on your own time frame.
  • Top-notch protection: Make sure your boat has the most secure storage unit possible by choosing a listing that offers protection like a padlock, 24-hour surveillance, security cameras, or an access code.
  • Follow these tips for how to store a boat long-term:

  • Perform any needed maintenance.
  • If you're storing in the water, the battery should be left on board and connected. Disconnect the battery if you're opting for dry vs. wet storage.
  • Flush out the engine and, if possible, store it in a vertical position.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Use a protective spray on the vinyl.
  • 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 may find at your local boating retailer. For other boating-related accessories, you might also check REI, located at 17559 Haggerty Rd, Northville.

    It's a good idea to winterize your boat, as Melvindale winter temps can get below 35. First, flush and drain the engine, and add lubricant to protect it from corrosion. If you're keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. If not, drain the fuel lines. Replace the engine filters and check clamps, belts, hoses, and the oil. 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.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. Melvindale's high wintertime humidity can allow mildew and mold to develop in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Climate-controlled boat storage provides the best protection against high humidity.

    Yes, it's advised you have insurance. Your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy should cover potential damage or theft while your boat is being stored.
