And yes, we also have indoor boat storage!
The market determines the cost of indoor boat storage, so giving you an accurate picture for your city is difficult. We can tell you, from scanning various boat storage facilities across the country, that indoor boat storage can run you anywhere from $100-$1500 per month, depending upon the size of your boat, the city you live in, the proximity of storage facility to water, and the extra care given to the boat. You will hear figures like $8 per square foot thrown about in the discussion, meaning a five-foot wide boat, twenty-feet in length (100 square feet), would cost $800 per month for indoor storage.
The benefits of indoor boat storage
Keeping your boat out of the water and out of the elements during the winter has obvious advantages. The weather can wreak havoc on a boat, as can the damage water can do to the hull. If you live in an area of the country where winter boat fun is out of the question, due to the weather, indoor boat storage really is the only logical step to take.
It is also possible to pay for premium services, like winterizing your boat, or preparing it for the upcoming season, but you will pay dearly for these services, and they are services you are fully-capable of doing yourself.
The possible problems with indoor boat storage
Besides the cost of indoor boat storage, other main problem is accessibility. You are only able to access your boat during storage facility hours, which may not be an inconvenience you can live with.
An alternative we think makes perfect sense
Quite frankly, we are a bit surprised more boat owners don’t look to self storage facilities for the answer to boat storage. You can rent a medium-to-large storage unit for a fraction of the cost you would pay at a boat storage facility, under $200 per month for anything under twenty-five feet in length, including the trailer. Storage facilities like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage offer 24/7 access, wide aisles, and you can even rent climate controlled storage if you prefer for added protection against oxidation.
Why pay more simply because the sign on the business says “boat storage,” when you can pay considerably less when the sign on our business just says “self storage?”
