"Jimmy was the best host ever. My car couldn’t have been in a safer location and he made it accessible anytime I was able to make it home. Would 10/10 rent a space here again!"

"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Choosing Boat Storage

When selecting an outdoor storage unit for a boat or other watercraft, there are several important factors to consider.

  • Location: The storage facility should be close enough to the water to make launching and retrieval easy. Look for storage locations near Northport, AL or in the surrounding areas.
  • Terrain: Make sure the storage facility is on level ground and the terrain is suitable for a trailer to enter and exit.
  • Size: It is important to get a space that is large enough to fit the boat and trailer. As a general rule of thumb, always choose a space that is slightly larger than the length of your boat.
  • Security: Check that the storage facility has a secure perimeter and adequate lighting.
  • Accessibility: Look for a storage facility that offers easy access to the unit at any time of day or night.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor boat storage in Northport, there are several factors to consider. In the summer months, temperatures can reach above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, with humidity levels remaining high. Therefore, it is important to keep your boat well-ventilated and use a protective cover. In the winter months, temperatures can drop to below freezing. Boats should be winterized and all excess moisture should be removed. Outdoor storage offers a number of benefits over indoor storage. The open air and natural sunlight can help protect your boat from mold and mildew, while ventilation can help keep your boat dry when stored outside. Additionally, outdoor storage provides quick and easy access to your boat and ensures that it is visible.

We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).

If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.
