Boat Storage

Reading Time: 3 minutes

When you aren’t cruising the open waters, you’ll need somewhere to keep your boat. Regulations from Homeowners’ Associations may also make proper boat storage a necessity for you. If you find yourself asking where there is boat storage near you, ezStorage has the answer. Our facilities offer heated boat storage near your home for unprecedented convenience. Rest easy knowing your vessel is in climate controlled boat storage. Let our staff help you find the space that is perfect for your boat.

Climate Controlled or Outdoor?

Climate controlled boat storage gives you the added peace of mind that your vessel will be stored at the same temperatures, no matter what the season brings. When storing outdoor, your boat is exposed to all of the elements, and carries a higher risk of damage. During the winter climate controlled storage will keep your boat in a heated environment, which is beneficial for electrical components. Outdoor storage typically costs less, and may be a better option for those with large vessels. Either way, an ezStorage representative will happily guide you through the decision making process.

Before you begin the boat storage process, please read the tips below to make the most of your experience:

Winter Boat Storage Tips

Before storing your boat for the winter, you’ll need to prepare it. Follow these suggestions to get your boat ready for winter (also check out our tips on how to dewinterize a boat).

  • Drain the engine oil and refill with new oil. Change the oil filter as well. Make sure to run the engine to circulate the new oil throughout the system.
  • Protect the engine with antifreeze. Drain as much water as possible from the inboard cooling systems and fill with marine engine grade antifreeze. You should also purchase an outboard winterizing kit from your local marine store to suck antifreeze into the engine.
  • Treat your fuel system. There are several methods used by boaters, but the most common involves draining the fuel as much as possible and refilling with fresh gas and adding a fuel stabilizer. Run the engine for ten minutes to circulate the stabilizer.
  • Clean your boat. Before putting your boat into storage, give it a good overall cleaning. Wipe down the interior and power wash the exterior. Remove any safety equipment you don’t want to leave on the boat such as first aid kits or life jackets.

Outdoor Boat Storage

ezStorage has several convenient locations that offer outdoor boat storage. Since your boat will be exposed to the elements, you’ll want to invest in a boat cover. A cover with proper airflow is a good way to protect against mildew and other potential problems. Look for a cover that is strong, water-resistant and made of a breathable material. Boat covers are also a great option to use during boating season because it’s easy to remove anytime you want to take your boat out.

During the winter, you may want to consider having your boat shrink wrapped. Similar to boat covers, you want to ensure that your shrink-wrap allows for ventilation while protecting your boat from snow and rain. You can purchase a do-it-yourself kit or pay for professional shrink-wrapping.

Boat Storage Locations

In order to rent a boat storage parking space, ezStorage requires that you present the title, registration, and proof of insurance for the boat being stored. Space must be reserved by the same person that is listed as the owner of the boat. ezStorage has several locations that offer boat storage solutions. We recommend contacting the location to check on availability and then bringing your boat to the facility to ensure that our spaces can accommodate your boat size before signing a rental agreement. Most boats, RV’s and campers are able to fit into our boat storage spaces.

With ezStorage, finding climate controlled boat storage near you has never been easier. Let our heated facilities or outdoor spaces be your vessel’s home for the offseason. Find an ezStorage facility near you today!
