The Perks Of Boat and RV Storage

During the pandemic, the interest in RVs and boats have skyrocketed. Where will you store your vehicle this winter?

Will your yard benefit from gaining the extra space? Maybe it’s time to think about a secure storage unit for your summer toys.

What is your favourite summer activity? We can probably take a guess, something outdoors? By living in the beautiful Okanagan, we are blessed to have many camping and boating destinations. During the pandemic, RV sales have gone up 3.5% from the previous year. What a great way to spend a stressful time outdoors and with your family. Now that summer is coming to a close, where will you store your new toys? Let us take a look at the perks of using a storage facility this winter.


Space and Freedom

With winter on the way, there are forts, fluffy angels, and snowball fights to be had in the backyard. But wait, there is a large boat in the yard… now what are you going to do?

Another thing to avoid is the hassle of shovelling around the RV or boat parked on your driveway. Why waste precious parking real estate when you can store your large toys in a storage unit! You can even rent a personal storage locker at the same facility to store your summer accessories like bikes, paddleboards, and all of your water gear! Save yourself the stress of finding everything you need for next summer and keep it all in one place.

Security and Safety

You may think, “Where can I go that is safer than my front yard?”. Well, the answer is at a secure centre that is digitally locked with 24-hour surveillance. The sense of security feels strong when you are able to see your beloved RV out of the front window every day, but it could be more protected.

Theft and damage to your vehicles are greatly deterred when you use RV storage that has 24-hour security. Features like locked entries with digitally-coded gates, a fenced perimeter, efficient lights to brighten the entire compound, and indoor storage options bring a sigh of relief.


Codes and Violations

There are bylaws that regulate parking permissions on private property that all homeowners should be familiar with. You may be in a neighborhood that does not allow for boat or RV storage on your property. If you find yourself in this situation, then a storage facility is exactly what you need.

Some storage facilities offer both indoor and outdoor spaces for your recreational vehicles. Take some time to review what your storage needs are before driving into a storage stall. Consider climate control, insurance requirements, ease of access, and cost when making the decision.

The Okanagan is a four-season playground so, National Storage has created lots of options for storing your toys in the offseason. We offer heated car storage with state-of-the-art trickle chargers. Now available, motorcycle, ATV, snowmobile, and seadoo storage! We have opened an outdoor facility for boats and RVs which is tucked away in our new Glenrosa compound.
