The pros of trailer storage.

The first advantage of trailer storage is it gets that trailer out of you driveway, garage, car port, or backyard, and that is always a good thing for the aesthetics of the neighborhood.  We do not say that lightly.  Most neighbors would agree that they do not like looking at trailers parked on properties.  As far as curb appeal goes, parked trailers is not a winning look.

Second, trailer self storage removes 99% of the worry about theft or vandalism.  Let’s face it, parking your trailer in the backyard, or in your driveway, is an invitation for vandalism/theft.  You might as well paint a target on the trailer.  Not so at a storage facility.  There you will find secure self storage the type which you cannot replicate on your own property.  And your insurance company will thank you.

Finally, trailer storage protects your trailer from the wrath of Mother Nature.  Just parking your trailer under a tree involves some damage during calm weather; doing so during a storm is an invitation to an insurance claim.  The sun, the cold, the wind, the rain, sleet, and snow, all will do a number on the surface/paint of your trailer, and those expenses can be easily avoided by renting storage spaces.

The cons of trailer self storage.

Yes, there are cons to trailer storage, the first of which is cost.  Even though we believe storage cot to be affordable for most, it is still a financial strain for many people.  Let’s say, in your city, a thirty-foot storage unit cost $120 per month.  For many, that may seem reasonable, but for a few, that $120 may mean being able to pay the rest of the bills that month.

Secondly there is the matter of convenience.  Having a trailer at home is convenient when you want to work on it, as in winterizing it.  Not so if you have to drive to storage units to work on that trailer.  Secondly, depending upon the hours of the storage facility, you can only access your trailer during the hours of operation.

In the end, only you can decide.

We do not have a horse in this race. Only you can decide if trailer storage is right for you.  If it is, we encourage you to find the best deal you can without sacrificing security in the process.  Your trailer is a major investment for you, so make sure you find secure self storage if you opt for storage.
