How to Store Your Large Vehicles
September 24th, 2019
One of the most challenging things when looking for the perfect storage unit is determining what size you need. The size of your perfect storage unit will depend on the duration of your stay, how long your items will be in storage, and the size of the items to be stored. Sometimes a single item will take up most of your unit. Storing large vehicles such as RVs, boats, and trucks can make your storage unit choice more difficult. In today’s blog, Marina View Storage gives some advice on how to store these large vehicles.
Measure the Dimensions
Before you make any decisions about your storage unit, you should know the dimensions of your vehicle. Measuring the length, width, and especially the height will be step number one. You will need to find a unit that can accommodate the unique dimensions of your vehicle; don’t forget that you will need to rent a storage unit that has an entryway large enough for your vehicle to go in! Once you are sure about your vehicle dimensions, you can decide on a storage unit that will fit perfectly.
Boats are a very popular vehicle to keep in storage due to their seasonality. There are specialty boat storage facilities; however, if you are looking for a personal storage unit for secure keeping, you need to find the right space. When storing a boat, you will need to account for the engines on the end, as they can take up extra room. Leave enough room on the sides for accessibility and storage space for boat accessories. Before you move the boat completely into the storage unit, make sure to put a boat cover on the top to prevent a build-up of dust and debris.
RVs can be tricky to find storage for due to the length of the vehicle’s body. There are specialty storage units designed to fit oversized RVs or trailers, so before settling on at-home storage or uncovered storage, research RV storage in your area. Often, these storage units can fit more than just an RV, so make sure to maximize the space on the sides as well. Before storage, make sure to thoroughly clean the inside and outside of the RV to prevent damage as time passes. You can also store items inside the RV to get more storage space out of the unit!
