There’s no denying the appeal of having your own kayaks, floatation devices, life jackets, jet skis, and other water-dedicated ‘toys’ in your arsenal. But should those season goodies have a dedicated spot taking up space in your garage? Here’s why you should reclaim your space by securing water equipment in a public storage facility off-season.
Free Your Garage
With cooler temperatures approaching, it’s likely you’ll want to pull up your vehicles into a warm, dry garage—but that’s impossible if your space is consumed by gear.
Of course, if you want to actually use them next year, storing them outdoors may not be an option. Simply placing these items in a storage unit short term or long term makes your carport or garage a viable space again.
Safety and Security
Most of your neighbors and passersby alike are likely privy to the fact that you have some costly water toys harbored at your home. Unless you are subliminally advertising, ‘free stuff, come and take it,’ you might want to keep costly items like jet skis, kayaks, canoes and the like out of sight and out of mind.
Off-site storage can offer you peace of mind, and you can purchase extra insurance or ride off of a homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy for additional protection for your goods.
Climate Controlled Public Storage Keeps Gear in Top Form
Extreme heat or cold or being set upon the hard ground can result in damage to the hulls of boats and compromise the integrity of numerous materials. However, a climate controlled public storage unit can help ensure that your gear stays in peak condition year round, which is more than most enclosed garages can offer.
If your equipment is intended for years of enjoyment, you’ll want to take advantage of the benefits of off-site storage.
