RV storage facilities are growing in popularity as more and more people are buying RV’s. Don’t have the space to store an RV at home? Do not let that stop you from buying the RV of your dreams!

If you are not actively using your RV or getting work done to it, maybe it is time to find a storage facility for it. Make room, get it out of your yard, and into a safe and secure outdoor RV storage facility. Or, choose one that has coverage, and even indoor options! 

Outdoor RV Storage

Did you know that outdoor RV storage is the most affordable way to store your RV, the next most affordable option is covered RV storage, followed by indoor storage?

Unless you are familiar with a particular storage facility, you may not be familiar with the set-up. What better way to get a feel for a place than taking a virtual tour of the storage facility!

The best self-storage facilities are clean, spacious, and secure. Having a locked gate and security cameras around the facility can help you feel like your rig is in good hands.  

New RV Owners

If you are still in the market for an RV or have recently bought one you could be wondering where and how you are going to store it once you drive it off of the lot. The majority of RV owners only use their rig seasonally and have to figure out a place to store it during the off-season.

Depending on personal preference, and the weather—most RV’s are in storage about six months out of the year.

Going on Vacation 

If you own an RV, chances are you take it with you when you go on vacation. But, not always. For times when you are flying out of town or will be away for any length of time, you might worry about leaving such an expensive (and prized) possession in your driveway while you are gone.

When your RV is at a storage facility, you no longer have to worry about that, you can just focus on enjoying your trip. 

RV Storage 101

There is more to storing an RV than just finding a facility that you like. To store an RV properly, a thorough run-through of this checklist should be conducted.

  • RV cover
  • Tire covers 
  • Check tire pressure
  • Vent covers
  • Close windows
  • Drain water from pipes and lines
  • Winterize the pipes, etc.
  • Turn off appliances
  • Pest control (insect & rodent traps)
  • Remove all food
  • Battery maintenance

If you live in an area that experiences extreme winters, you will need to take the extra steps to winterize your RV. When temperatures drop below freezing (32 degrees F) for more than 24 hours pipes can freeze and crack, just like in your home.

Make Room at Home

An RV is not a small item that you can stash away without giving it a second thought. No, this will take up a large amount of space either parked in your driveway, in your yard, or wherever it can fit. 

And, even if it fits comfortably in your driveway, wouldn’t you like to use all of that driveway space for something else?

Some neighborhoods actually have rules and regulations against having an RV at your house. Which, may sound ridiculous. But, HOA rules are rules. 

You could build a giant storage shed just for your rig if you wanted to, but it may be easier to find an RV storage facility.

Storing Other Large Items

Once you finally have your RV safely stored you will notice how great it feels to have that extra space at home. Is there anything else that you would like to find storage to free up even more of your yard? 

Do you have your boat at home? How about some of that extra stuff in the basement or garage? Finding a great storage facility might inspire you to clear out other areas in your home that have been ignored for a while. 

Drive-up Storage

While some storage facilities are all encompassed within a building type of structure, drive-up storage gives you easier access to your storage unit, as well as the option to pull right up to your unit and unload items from your vehicle. How convenient is that?

Checking In

Are you worried about letting your rig out of your sight till next season? Fear not. With a storage facility, you can have access to your rig to give it a check-up once a month or at least halfway through the off-season.

Few storage facilities offer 24-hour access (for everyone’s safety and security) yet most days of the week are open from at least dawn till dusk so that you can stop in and check things like water systems, electrical, RV covers, and make sure there are no pests hiding in there. 

Checking in is also a great way to get to know the employees at your storage facility, and become familiar with the staff. This is not a requirement, just a bonus.

Paying Rent

When it comes to paying bills, we are all guilty of forgetting due dates and suffering hefty late fees. Thankfully we have automatic bill pay, now.

Set it, and forget it. Automatic monthly payments that are deducted from your account are the easiest way for bill pay to always be on time, avoiding late fees, and avoiding the stress of remembering to send out checks every month! Those days are long behind us.

Whether you are just renting the spot for your RV, or you’ve decided to utilize the facility for more than that 

Doing What’s Right for Your Rig 

Whether it be for the duration of the entire off-season, or just in between camping trips and road trips, outdoor RV storage is a great solution to having affordable and secure storage for your rig.

In or around Kingston, Washington, there is no better place than Kingston Ideal Storage. You and your RV will love it here! Contact for all of your storage needs.

When you’ve got a small garage or no garage at all, you’ve got to get a bit crafty with your possessions.

Garages are important storage areas in our households. They get filled up quickly, either by parking our vehicles or storing all of our extra stuff that doesn’t quite fit inside the house. If yours is too small, it can fail to accomplish either goal.

Today, we’re going to try and give you a hand with this problem. Small garages can create big issues and you might end up having to find vehicle storage if you’ve got multiple vehicles. When looking for vehicle storage, you need to know the right questions to ask.

There are loads of storage facilities all over the place, but when you’re talking about a car, RV, boat, or motorcycle, it’s got to be properly equipped. If you don’t ask, you won’t know, so ask these questions and find a storage facility that works for your needs.

Is There Proper Security?

When you’re talking about putting your vehicle or some other expensive item into storage, the first thing you’re going to want to know is if there’s proper security at the facility. You can’t trust the place if they don’t have all of the things that are required to keep intruders from stealing or damaging your car, not to mention all of the pesky pests and rodents out there.

We’re talking about cameras, sturdy gates, and secure units. Fortunately, at Ideal Storage, we take our security measures very seriously. Our entire facility is guarded with a state of the art security system with keyless entry. Only paying tenants or those accompanied by paying tenants are allowed on the premises, unless admitted by our management.

Not all facilities go far enough to secure your belongings, but why pay for car storage if you can’t be sure that it’s safe?

Is My Property Going to Be Covered?

The next thing you’ll be thinking about is how your RV, boat, or car will be protected from the weather. The reason people keep their car in the garage is to minimize the wear and tear from rain, sleet, and snow throughout the year and it’s no different at a storage facility. This is especially true with things like classic cars, and high-end boats or RVs.

You need to be sure that your property is going to be in a covered facility, if you require it. Many storage facilities have both covered and open-air units, so don’t be afraid to make sure you’re getting what you need. Our facility does have both types of units, so you’ll have the option to choose whichever is best for your property.

Typically, you’d want to have covered storage for cars, but you may want uncovered storage for your boat, which we can happily offer as well.

How Much Space Will There Be?

Space is everything when you’re bringing in a large boat or recreational vehicle. Likewise, you should have the option of choosing something smaller, if you’re bringing in a motorcycle or small sports car. The storage facility that you end up choosing should have a wide range of storage units in all different sizes.

We offer storage, both covered and uncovered, in whatever size suits your needs. As specialists in RV and boat storage, we’ve got units as large as 12X70, meaning you can store a huge RV or fishing boat with ease. Our uncovered lots range from 10X20 to 10X45, so take your pick.

How Much Does It Cost Per Month?

Of course, you can’t put a price on keeping your prized possessions safe and sound in storage, but you also want to avoid spending too much per month. One of the most important questions to ask about vehicle storage, RV storage, or boat storage is “how much does it cost per month?”.

You can find a detailed breakdown of the different storage units we offer and the monthly rental price on our website. It really depends on what you need, so a smaller storage unit or uncovered lots with fewer frills is going to be a lot cheaper than our largest covered units. It’s also important to know what you’re paying for, which is state of the art facilities and the best security possible when you choose Ideal Storage.

What Are Your Policies?

A good storage facility will have a detailed list of policies that put their tenants’ minds at ease. If you’re talking to a storage facility manager and they can’t tell you what their policies are, then they aren’t worth your time and money. Our storage facility adheres to state and local laws, so whenever we get a new tenant, they have to sign an agreement to follow these policies.

Some of our site policies include:

  • No smoking at the facility.
  • Close and lock doors when leaving the facility.
  • No vehicles left overnight without permission.
  • Living things, explosives, flammable, and drugs are prohibited at the facility.
  • No toxic waste or items that produce odors.
  • No playing of musical instruments to be played at any time.
  • No working in the unit, as they are for storage only.

You can find a more detailed list of our policies on our website. They’re in place to ensure that everyone feels safe and secure both being in the facility and leaving their possessions in the facility. We take pride in offering brand new, state of the art facilities for our tenants and we always aim to live up to our name as the Ideal Storage facility.

Do you feel like you’re running out of space, or are you looking to de-clutter without getting rid of some precious heirlooms? Have you wondered about the benefits of self-storage? 

Self-storage facilities are convenient and cost-effective. Yet how do you know if investing is one is right for you?

Here are some reasons you might be ready to search for local extra space.

1. Your Home Is Getting Cluttered

Clutter can really make your home begin to feel uncomfortable. Beyond that, it can even cause your health to be impacted. Clutter can cause safety issues and problems with anxiety, memory loss, and allergies.

Contrast that with decluttering, which can lower your stress levels and make it easier for you to focus. You will be in a more peaceful frame of mind knowing that your space is organized.

Decluttering doesn’t always mean throwing everything out. In fact, you may have off-season decorations you just want to get out of the house or other items you plan to use in the future.

This is when a quality self-storage unit comes in handy. These units are secure and temperature controlled. They’re also a great place to keep items you’ll only need a couple of times a year.

The rest of the time, you can help keep your home clutter-free by removing unnecessary items from your home altogether. 

2. You Need More Space

If you live in a small house or apartment, you know the value of a little extra space. This is especially true if you don’t have a basement or attic in your home for storing important belongings you aren’t using. These could include bikes, beds, or heirlooms you eventually plan to use or pass on.

Nothing makes your home look smaller than too many furniture pieces or extra knick-knacks. A storage unit can give you the extra space you need without requiring you to invest in a larger home.

3. You’re Moving

This is a seller’s market, and you may get an offer on your home that you can’t refuse before you’re ready to make a decision on a new one.

A storage unit is a great place to store your furniture and other important belongings while you live somewhere temporarily. You may even find yourself enjoying the convenience and keeping some belongings at the unit even after you find a new place you love!

4. You Have Important Equipment

If you garden or paint in the warmer months, you’ve probably invested in costly equipment that you won’t need in the winter. 

If you leave things in your vehicle or garage, they could be exposed to temperatures that could cause damage. They may also be easier for potential thieves to view. With a temperature-controlled, locked storage unit, you can safely store your equipment without worry.

5. You’ve Got College Kids

Nothing says “crowded” like college students home for the winter or summer break. Everything they’ve been living with year-round is suddenly looking for a temporary home.

Mini-fridges, televisions, and sofas are just a few of the items your young student will need to store until next semester. A temporary storage unit can help ensure that your home won’t suddenly become overwhelmed with visiting furniture.

6. You’re a Serious Decorator

Some folks go all out for the holidays with larger decorations that your garage can’t handle during the offseason. If you’ve got a lot of things you don’t want taking up space most of the year, a storage unit can help take the burden off of your property.

7. You Rent Your Home to Others

Today, lots of folks use online accommodation marketplaces to advertise their home as a possible vacation destination in their area. Renting your home through these platforms can be an excellent source of income, especially if you can live and work elsewhere for a time. 

There is, however, always the issue of what you can do with your clothes and other belongings while renters are using your home. They’ll expect a clean, uncluttered space they can call their own if you want to continue getting rental business.

A rented storage unit means you can keep your belongings safely locked up without having to bother your friends and family while you’re renting out your home. 

8. You’re Selling Your Home

When you’re getting your home ready to sell, you know that the last thing prospective buyers want to see if a lot of clutter overflowing from closets or too many items personal to the current owner.

An expert in staging will tell you that a home decluttered and prepared with a few tasteful pieces is sure to be appealing to buyers. A storage unit can hold your stuff safely and securely until you’re ready to move on to your next home.

9. You’re Downsizing

If you’re moving from a house to a smaller home or apartment, you know how difficult it can be to know what to do with your belongings. You may not want to get rid of everything right away. Some things may also have sentimental value.

A storage unit means that you can make important decisions without cluttering your new home.

10. Renovations

You may not want to pile your living room furniture into your bedroom while it’s being renovated. A storage unit can allow you to store entire rooms of belongings while you’re home gets a makeover.

The Benefits of Self-Storage

Self-storage is a safe, comfortable way to store your belongings during transitional seasons. It can also help you to keep your home fresh and de-cluttered. If you need more space and can’t find it where you live, look into getting a self-storage unit for maximum convenience.
