Types of Boat Storage

Storing your boat outdoors offers the greatest convenience, as you can access it quickly, without having to worry about opening a gate or finding a parking spot. However, there are other storage options that you may want to consider, such as indoor, outdoor and covered storage.

  • Indoor storage provides the utmost protection from the elements, with many options for private garages or storage units.
  • Outdoor storage provides easy access and is often the most economical option, with options ranging from parking lots to self-storage.
  • Covered storage provides a balance of protection and accessibility, often with carports or docks.

Choosing Boat Storage

Finding the right outdoor storage space for your boat or other watercraft can be challenging, particularly in Berkeley, California. Consider the following when selecting an outdoor storage unit:

  • Size - Make sure the space is large enough to fit your boat and trailer.
  • Location - Choose a storage unit near you, or one that is in a convenient location for you to access.
  • Security - Look for a storage unit that offers features like fencing, lighting, and locks that provide a secure environment for your boat.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor boat storage in Berkeley, California, it’s important to consider the climate and weather conditions of the city. During peak summer months, the average high temperature is in the mid-60s while in peak winter months, the average low temperature often drops to the mid-40s.

Outdoor boat storage can come with several benefits compared to indoor storage, including increased ventilation and visibility, which can help to reduce the chance of rot and mildew setting in. Other benefits include increased protection against corrosion and a lower risk of theft.

To ensure the best possible condition of your stored watercraft, it is important to use protective covers, and to remove all excess moisture. Additionally, it is recommended to inspect and clean your boat regularly, as well as lubricating all necessary parts. Properly maintaining your watercraft will help to protect it from deterioration and ensure its longevity.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor boat storage spaces in Berkeley 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.
