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

Storing a boat or watercraft outdoors allows for maximum convenience and accessibility. It may be worth considering alternative storage types, such as indoor, outdoor, and covered boat storage.

  • Indoor storage offers the most protection from the elements, but may not offer the most convenience. Examples include private garages, storages units, and climate-controlled facilities.
  • Outdoor storage is often the most cost-effective option, but can be less secure than other storage types. Examples include driveways, parking lots, and open fields.
  • Covered storage offers a compromise between indoor and outdoor storage, in terms of both accessibility and protection. Examples include carports, tarped enclosures, and custom-built shelters.

Choosing Boat Storage

When searching for an outdoor storage unit for your boat or watercraft, size and security are the two primary considerations.

  • Look for a unit that is large enough to fit your boat and trailer. Measure the boat and trailer before you commit to a space.
  • The storage unit should be secure so that your boat and trailer are secure from theft. Look for access restrictions such as gated entry, security cameras, and lockable units.
  • Consider the terrain of the property and the environment, as these factors can affect how easy it is to maneuver your boat in and out of the unit.
  • The location should be convenient for you to access. Look for a storage unit that is close to where you will be launching and retrieving your boat.
  • Make sure the unit is designed for outdoor storage by checking if the area is well maintained, provides drainage, and has adequate ventilation.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor boat storage in Vail, Arizona, it is important to consider the climate and weather of the area. During peak summer months, the average high temperature is 88°F and during peak winter months, the average low temperature is 32°F. This means it is important to use a protective cover to shield the boat from the heat during summer months, and to ensure that all excess moisture is removed prior to storage during winter months.

Outdoor boat storage offers many benefits compared to indoor storage. These include the ability to provide natural ventilation to the boat, reducing the chances of mold and mildew buildup. Additionally, outdoor storage reduces the risk of fire, since there are no flammables stored in close proximity. There is also the benefit of constant monitoring, as the boat is easily visible and accessible.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor boat storage spaces in Vail is a great place to start.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

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.

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.
