21 x 10 Driveway in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Verified Review

"I’m glad I picked Joel’s driveway to park my car while I was out of state for 3 months. Nice neighborhood and he even put my car cover on for me since I had to catch a flight super early in the morning. My husband went to pick it up today and Joel was prepared with a jump starter and an air pump, in case we needed it. "

Types of Boat Storage

Pittsburgh, PA is a great location for storing a boat or other watercraft. With a variety of options to choose from, you can find the right fit for your needs.

  • Indoor storage is the most secure and safe option, offering the most protection from the elements and potential theft. Examples of this option include garages, basements, or warehouses.

Choosing Boat Storage

When selecting a storage unit for a boat or other watercraft, it's important to consider various factors such as the size of the space, accessibility and location. Here are some important considerations to keep in mind when making your selection:

  • The size of the storage space – Is the space large enough to accommodate your boat or watercraft?
  • Accessibility – Is the unit easy to access, and is there enough room to maneuver your boat or watercraft?
  • Location – Is the unit located near a body of water or close to a launch ramp?
  • Security – Does the space have adequate security measures in place such as lockable doors and windows?
  • Weather protection – Does the unit provide protection from potential weather-related damages?

About Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a mid-sized city located in the western part of the Commonwealth, with a population of nearly 300,000. Located at the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers, Pittsburgh is both historically rich and culturally vibrant. The area is known for its abundance of steel-related and other industries, as well as the world-renowned University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.

The city is divided into 90 different neighborhoods, including Downtown, the South Side, Lawrenceville, Shadyside, Bloomfield, Oakland, Squirrel Hill, and the North Side. In addition to its unique neighborhoods, Pittsburgh is home to a variety of natural resources, including Point State Park, which sits at the confluence of the rivers and hosts many of the city's festivals and events, as well as the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. There are also a number of recreational, historical, and cultural attractions in the city, such as the Andy Warhol Museum, the Phipps Conservatory, and the Carnegie Science Center.

Residents of Pittsburgh enjoy easy access to many of the region's top hospitals and libraries, as well as recreational activities on the rivers. Many marinas are available for boat owners to access the rivers, and Pittsburgh's location on the three rivers provides ample opportunities for fishing, boating, and other water activities.

FAQs About Boat Storage in Pittsburgh

Boat storage rates in Pittsburgh are $148 every month, on average.

It depends. Class 2 boats will need at least a 20 X 40 storage unit, while Class A boats (typically fishing dinghies) may fit in a 10 X 15 storage unit. If you rent indoor or covered boat storage, make sure to check the boat's clearance.

Check out a few popular offerings for boat storage:

  • Access 24/7: Rent Pittsburgh boat storage that has 24/7 access, ideal for accessing your boat on your own timetable.
  • Security: Ensure that your boat has the safest storage possible with a listing that offers security features such as a padlock, security cameras, an access code, or 24/7 surveillance.
  • Here's how to prep your boat for long-term storage:

  • Ensure the maintenance tasks are up to date.
  • If you go with wet boat storage, the battery should be left on board and connected. If you go with dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery.
  • The engine should be flushed out and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Use a protective spray on the vinyl.
  • To avoid tire damage for long-term boat trailer storage, put wood blocks under the wheels.
  • Put a wrap or vented cover on your boat, if you go with outdoor storage, which can often be found at your local boating store. You could also check REI, located at 412 S 27th St, Pittsburgh, for other boating accessories.

    Pittsburgh winter temperatures can get below 35, so it's a good idea to winterize your boat. First, flush and drain the engine, and add lubricant to protect it from corrosion. Drain the fuel lines or, if keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. Replace the engine filters and check the oil, hoses, clamps, and belts. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the exterior and interior of the boat to remove moisture. Finally, prevent rodents from entering by plugging the exhaust outlets.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. Pittsburgh's high winter humidity can increase the opportunities of mildew and mold having a party in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Rent climate-controlled boat storage to be fully protected against high humidity.

    Insurance is highly suggested for boat storage near Pittsburgh. Check your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy to confirm that it covers potential theft or damage while your boat is being stored.
