When I told my husband that I got promoted and that we would be moving across the country, you should have seen the look on his face. He was clearly devastated, and I didn't know what to do to make it better. Instead of focusing on the negative things, I started working with him to help him to overcome his grief. We talked about how we could stay in close touch with family and friends, and how to make the move less stressful than other moves in the past. This blog is all about moving without the hassle and heartache.
Storing your RV at a storage facility when it isn't being used is a great way to make sure that it stays safe and in good shape without cluttering your own driveway or yard. Here are a few features to look for when choosing an RV storage facility to utilize:
Covered Storage Options
One important feature to look for when choosing a storage facility for your RV is covered storage options. Unless you only plan to store your RV for a few days at a time, the rig could succumb to wear and tear due to the outdoor elements as time goes on. If your RV is stored outside in the elements, the paint could fade and start cracking or chipping away before long. And you'll be left with an eyesore that you'll have to pay to have repainted.
So make sure that the storage facility you choose offers storage spaces that feature permanent canopies to cover the top of your RV at all times while it's parked. If the canopies don't have side walls on them, the facility should allow you to attach tarps to the canopy to create your own side walls for extra protection if you want to.
A Washing Station
Even if your RV is stored under a cover, it's bound to pick up at least a little dust while it sits. So you'll likely want to wash the rig before taking it out on the road. But it can be tough to find a car wash that can accommodate large recreational vehicles.
So it's a good idea to make sure that the covered RV storage facility you choose to use features a washing station of some kind. Whether it's an automatic washing system that you can drive through or a few spigots with hoses attached to them where you can complete a basic wash, you should be able to drive your RV from your storage space to the washing area and clean the whole rig up so it's ready for your adventure.
Another important feature the RV facility you choose should offer is secured access to the facility as a whole. The entire property should be surrounded by a fence of some kind and the entrance should be protected with a locked access gate to ensure that only customers with card keys or access codes can enter the premises at any given time. It's also a good idea to make sure that an employee or security guard is always on duty in case an emergency of some kind arises.Share
