"This was a great experience! Wynettia communicated often with concerns about the weather or anything that could impact our stored travel trailer. We were several states away so it was great knowing our trailer was being monitored. She was super personable when we dropped off or visited in person. She was always available for questions and responded quickly."

Types of Boat Storage

Storing your boat or watercraft outdoors offers the advantage of not having to pay the cost of indoor storage, while still providing some protection from the elements. Alternatives to outdoor storage include indoor, covered, and underwater storage.

  • Indoor storage provides the most protection from the elements, but usually comes with the highest cost. Examples include private garages, storage units, and boat houses.
  • Outdoor storage offers some protection from the elements, and is usually the most cost effective option. Examples include boat ramps and parking lots.
  • Covered storage is a good middle ground between indoor and outdoor storage. Examples include carports and canvas tarps.
