RV storage can be a tricky process. First off, many places that offer self storage do not offer RV storage. Second, knowing who you can trust with your RV is tricky. And it is serious business, since an RV is a significant investment. And third, understanding how to properly store your RV is trick in itself, because you want to be sure that your RV is taken care of while you are away. Understand all three of these issues before turning your RV over to self storage.
To find a company that offers RV storage, it is best to begin by searching on the Internet, and then calling around the places that offer it to get a feel of who you would like to go with. One storage facility company that jumps out right away is Storage Direct. At many of their facilities across the country they offer RV storage, and you can be sure you can trust them because of the many years they have been in the business. Companies don’t last in the self storage business if they don’t provide a quality product to their company. If they are around after many years, you can be sure that people are satisfied with the quality of service that they offer.
Second, determining who you can trust with your RV storage is best determined by sticking to a few guidelines. First, you want to be sure that the company offers superb security at their facility. Check to make sure that their are gates at all of the entrances that require you to enter a personalized code to enter. A gate adds to the level of security, and personalized codes ensure that the storage facility is aware of each and every person that enters the premises. Therefore, if there is an issue with your RV, the facility can track down the individual who is responsible. The second to look for in regards to security are security cameras on the property. They help to deter possible criminals, and they also allow the facility to see each and every person who comes near your RV. The other element that is important to knowing you can trust a company with storing your RV is that they are transparent about the costs of such storage and they have reviews and testimonials on their website. These things will allow you to know that you are working with a company that is open and honest, and therefore can be trusted.
The last issue is making sure you understand how to properly store your RV. If your RV is not stored properly, significant damage to it can occur which can affect the structural integrity of the vehicle. First, make sure that you empty the engine of all gasoline and oil. These things can combust if the vehicle gets too hot. Second, you want to be sure that you empty the refrigerator in your RV, and that you cover all of upholstery. Dust and moisture can get in the RV and cause it damage, and any leftover food can invite pests. Lastly, cover your RV with an RV cover to help protect the outside from dust and moisture.
