What people say about renting outdoor boat storage on Neighbor

40 x 10 Unpaved Lot in Tucson, Arizona

Verified Review

"We parked our RV and truck on Orlando's land for several months. He was friendly and accommodating when we arrived, and so easy to work with. He responded the day of to our request, which was helpful given travel plans. He was flexible with where to park on his land, and we felt very welcome. The neighborhood is very calm, and there is a gas station a few minutes down the road which can be helpful if you are storing an RV. Overall, we had a positive first experience with Neighbor and if/when we should need storage in the area, we would certainly work with Orlando again."

"This was the perfect spot for my semi-long term storage need. Broderick is a good man and an excellent host: Polite to a fault, family-oriented, storage area fully prepared and organized, always reasonably quick to respond to communications, and when our schedules didn't synch he made arrangements to have a family member grant me access, as he wasn't going to be available personally. Overall a very good experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Broderick."

Types of Boat Storage

Storage in Rio Rico, Arizona, offers boaters a great outdoor option to store their watercraft. Alternatives, such as indoor and covered storage, are also available.

  • Outdoor storage: This is the most common option for boat storage and offers easy access for boaters. Boaters can park their boat in a parking lot, driveway, or similar open space.
  • Indoor storage: Private garages or shared storage provide increased protection from the elements and often require less maintenance than outdoor storage.
  • Covered storage: Carports, covered docks, and other covered structures provide optimal protection from the elements, while still providing easy access to the boat.

Choosing Boat Storage

Choosing an outdoor storage unit to store a boat or other watercraft in Rio Rico, Arizona can be a difficult decision. Here are some considerations to help make the choice easier:

  • Check that the storage space is large enough to fit the boat and trailer comfortably.
  • Consider the location of the storage unit. Look for areas that are easy to access and have flat surfaces for easy loading and unloading.
  • Make sure the storage unit is safe and secure, with a lockable door and sturdy walls.
  • Take into account the local weather, to make sure the boat is not exposed to strong winds, rain, or other harsh conditions.
  • Look for a storage facility that offers additional protection from theft or damage.

Climate Considerations

Renting outdoor storage for watercraft in Rio Rico, Arizona should be considered carefully. The climate and weather of the city vary depending on the season. For example, the average high in peak summer months is 96 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average low in peak winter months is 36 degrees Fahrenheit. Outdoor storage is generally preferable over indoor storage, as it allows the boat to breathe and minimize condensation and moisture buildup, while also keeping the interior of the boat cooler in the summer months. To further protect the boat, it is recommended that protective covers are used and all excess moisture is removed. Outdoor storage also provides protection from debris and other elements, as well as greater accessibility for boat owners.

FAQs about outdoor boat storage in Rio Rico

On average a Neighbor outdoor boat storage unit in Rio Rico costs $111 per month.

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked outdoor boat storage type in Rio Rico.

Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces. Residential driveways offer a range of sizes and are typically affordable and convenient.

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.
