Keeping Your Unit Clean

When I found out that I would be working in another country for a few years, I realized that I didn't want to haul all of my things with me on the road. I decided to rent a storage unit, but I had no idea how to keep my things pristine while they were in storage. The first time I rented a unit, I returned to find my things covered in dust, which created a lot of extra work. This website is here to help other homeowners to keep their things clean while they are in storage, so that you don't have to worry about extra trouble.

Is Your RV Parked In The Yard? 4 Reasons You Should Choose A Storage Facility

If you're tired of storing your RV in your yard, it's time to think about upgrading to an off-site storage facility. Having your RV in your yard may seem like the smart thing to do, but it might not be as smart as you think. In fact, there are quite a few benefits to storing your RV at an off-site storage facility. Here are just four of those benefits.

Round-The-Clock Security

Next to your home, your RV is probably your biggest investment. You've spent a lot of time and money on it. You want to make sure that it's protected from vandalism and theft. Even if you install a home security system that monitors your RV while it's parked in your yard, you're not providing it with the level of security that a storage facility will provide.

First, your RV will be stored behind locked gates that are accessible only by entering the correct code at the gate. Second, your RV will be monitored by 24-hour surveillance cameras. Third, most storage facilities have on-site managers to monitor the premises.

Protection from the Environment

It can be expensive to install an RV garage or parking shelter for your RV. If you don't have either of those structures on your property, and your RV is stored at home, it's being exposed to the elements. Unfortunately, constant exposure to the elements can destroy your RV. Most RV storage facilities provide covered parking ports, which means your RV will be protected from the elements while it's not in use.

No HOA Hassles

If you live in a planned community, you may have to deal with the HOA when it comes to storing your RV. Most HOAs have strict policies regarding the storage of RVs. That means you need to worry about breaking the rules each time you park your RV. When you store your RV at an off-site storage facility, you'll avoid all the HOA hassles that can come with keeping your RV in your yard.

Easy Access

It can be a real hassle getting your RV in and out of your yard, especially if you have tight quarters in your yard, or you live on a busy street. Storage facilities provide easy access for your RV. You'll be able to pull in and out of the storage facility without worrying about hitting your house or maneuvering around obstacles in your yard.
