3 Benefits if Keeping Your Boat in Self-Storage


April 24th, 2017

Now that the weather is warming up, people are beginning to think about all the fun summer activities coming their way. We don’t blame them. From vacations and road trips to barbecues and beach days, there’s a lot to look forward to! Of course, one of the best ways to enjoy the summer months is from the deck of a boat. Whether you’re thinking of buying a boat this year or already own one, an Extra Attic Self-Storage unit is the best way to keep it in tiptop shape. Here’s why:

Self-storage prevents damage or theft.

Boats are valuable and expensive, so it makes sense that you’d want to keep your boat as safe and secure as possible. While docking it at a marina or parking in your yard is one way to keep an eye on it, these methods aren’t the most secure. Someone could easily steal or damage your boat, costing you money as well as lost days on the water. Keeping your boat in a self-storage unit, on the other hand, is an excellent way to protect it against environmental elements and possible theft.

Self-storage leaves more space at home.

Boats need space. They can easily take up most of your garage, a good bit of your driveway, or a lot of precious yard. One way to avoid giving up your limited real estate is to put your boat in a self-storage unit instead. Your boat will be safe and you’ll get back your garage, driveway, or lawn. Everybody wins!

Self-storage keeps your boat accessible.

Not everyone is lucky enough to live next to the ocean. If your home is in Raleigh, Charlotte, or Greensboro, the thought of towing your boat all the way to the shore is not exactly pleasant. Save yourself a trip and get your boat a spot in our Wilmington Extra Attic Self-Storage location, which is minutes from Wrightsville Beach. You’ll enjoy the drive down and your boat will be waiting for you when you get here.

Spend more time having fun and less time worrying about the logistics of protecting, storing, and transporting your boat. Treat yourself to a self-storage unit and have the best summer yet!
