You remember the day you decided on the perfect jet ski. You fell in love with its snazzy profile and felt right at home in that comfy seat. From the fast four-stroke engine to those bold racing stripes, it was made for wild, wet fun. You picked out a matching trailer, loaded it up, and brought your new baby home. That’s when you realized that your beautiful jet ski takes up a lot of space. Now you need to find a place that offers jet ski storage.
No Room at Home
With an average length of more than 8 feet and weighing in at more than 1,000 pounds, your favorite summertime toy needs plenty of room. If you’re like most homeowners, the garage is already doing double duty as a storage area. Between the cars, seasonal boxes, lawn equipment and your camping gear, there’s not much floor space left over. If you can squeeze in the jet ski and trailer, it won’t be long before they’re surrounded by more stuff. Maneuvering the rig in and out of a crowded garage takes the fun out of a weekend lake run. However, the driveway isn’t an option because most neighborhood associations restrict that parking area to cars.
Easy In and Out
Your jet ski deserves its own spot, and you deserve the convenience of a local self storage facility. If you think the drive to pick up your watercraft from a storage unit will cut into your lake time, weigh that quick trip against the extra trouble of untangling the ski and trailer from garage clutter. One of the advantages of self storage is easy access. Simply back the car up to your unit, raise the door, and hook up the hitch. Coming home is just as simple, and you know that your expensive water toy is always safe. Secured gates, surveillance cameras and keypad codes provide low-cost protection against theft and vandalism.
Smart Winter Storage
When it’s time to winterize your jet ski, filling the tank and adding stabilizer are part of the routine. Trailer tires tend to rot if they’re parked on dirt or gravel, but concrete flooring in the unit keeps the wheels on your trailer in good shape. Stuff a little steel wool in the tailpipe and sprinkle cedar chips in the unit’s corners to discourage mice from moving in, and enjoy knowing that your jet ski will be ready to go when the weather warms up.
