Amenities to Look for When Shopping for RV Storage

As any RV owner knows, there are definitely perks to having your own recreational vehicle. You can go on long road trips with the family, camp out in super cool locations, and basically have your own home-on-the-go. No matter what you do or where you go with your RV,  it’s important to have a safe home for it when you aren’t using it. But if you’re like most people, you probably don’t happen to have a giant garage made just for your RV attached to your house. So, what are you supposed to do? Well, if you aren’t planning on using your RV for a while, it might be smart to put it in storage so you can be sure it’s safe, secure, and you don’t have to constantly worry about it. But isn’t that all expensive?

 

Fortunately, it doesn’t’ have to be! So, when you’re shopping around for RV storage, there are definitely things to keep in mind, other than the cost. Yes, getting a good deal is obviously important—and here at Affordable Storage we know we can get you a good deal—but it’s also important to make sure your RV will be in good hands.

A Large Enough Space is Key

It’s important to make sure that whatever storage company you choose has units large enough to accommodate your RV. After all, RVs come in many sizes, so you need to make sure yours will fit into the particular unit you’re interested in.

 

Fortunately, at Affordable Storage, we have several different sizes of canopy, enclosed, and open parking RV storage. Our RV storage units range in size from 25 feet to 50 feet. Our enclosed units all have 14-foot overhead doors. This means that no matter what size RV you own, we have a unit that can safely fit it.

 

Before you decide which size unit to rent, you also need to keep in mind that you don’t want your RV to just barely fit in the unit. You need room to get in and out, move any belongings in and out, allow doors and storage access bays to open and steps to come down, and just to be safe and cautious. Clearly, when it comes to storing your RV for any amount of time, having a large enough storage unit is key.

 

Safety Measures Matter

Another important amenity to look for when shopping around for RV storage are safety precautions. At any storage facility, you want to ensure that safety measures are taken to ensure whatever you’re putting away is kept secure. And when the thing that you’re storing is an entire recreational vehicle, that becomes even more important.

 

At Affordable Storage, we not only have computerized gate access, but we also have camera surveillance. So, if anything were to happen, we could see what went down. But really, having these safety measures when storing something as important (and expensive) as an RV is crucial. Whether you want your RV locked away for a few months while you can’t travel or want a place to store the vehicle year-round when you’re not using it, having a solid security system in place is always a good idea.

Other Amenities to Look For

You know that it’s important to look for a good price, good safety measures, and a large enough space when you’re trying to find somewhere to store your RV. But are there any other amenities to look for when shopping for RV storage? Yes! There definitely are, and some of them might surprise you. Here are a few we offer here at Affordable Storage:

 

Basically, we have it all, and there’s not really anything you’ll have to worry about once you decide to store your RV at Affordable Storage. Amenities are important when storing your RV, so don’t take any shortcuts. And remember that you can get all of these amenities at a great cost—you just have to know where to look!
