Boat Storage

Keep Your Boat Safe During the Off-Season. Discover the Benefits of a Sunbird Outdoor Boat Storage Facility.

Boating season is a time filled with fun, laughter, and explorations on the water. But, all too soon, that season ends, leaving you with one question: where are you going to store your boat?

While marina storage can be highly convenient for boaters, it usually leads to high wait times and unreasonable costs for you. Finding a secure place to keep your boat during the winter months is easier said than done.

Instead of trying to find a marina that can store your boat or placing it in the garage or driveway, why not keep your boat at a secure and affordable storage facility that can monitor its safety until the spring? At Sunbird Storage, we believe in offering our customers reliable boat storage during the off-season. That’s why we offer secure outdoor boat storage at several of our storage facilities! Together we can keep your boat in pristine condition all winter long.

Now, you can stop searching for boat storage near you. Instead, keep your boat at one of our facilities.

Why Choose Self Storage for Your Boat?

As much fun as your boat can be during the year, it’s hard to find reliable boat storage once the season is over. Rather than trying to find a place to store your boating equipment at home, it’s time to make the most of local storage facilities! 

Curious why a boat storage facility is the best solution for winter storage? Our boat parking helps provide the following:

Save Space at Home

Rather than try to keep your boat stored in a driveway or garage, a self storage facility provides the freedom and flexibility to store essential items at home rather than lose that vital storage space for half the year. Your garage and driveway can remain yours all year long!

Keep Pricing Reasonable

Every storage situation is different, but at Sunbird Storage, we try to prioritize our customers’ storage needs by providing reasonable storage space at an affordable price. We understand that finding a space accommodating enough for your boat can be difficult and sometimes expensive. That’s why we do our best to provide the best affordable boat storage near you!

Keep Your Boast Accessible

Unlike at-home storage or marina storage, a self storage facility offers the space, protection, and convenience you need to use your boat. Our outdoor lots are designed to be accessible year-round, so when you decide it’s time to hit the water again, you can easily use your boat. Our outdoor facilities are also ideal for boat trailer storage so that you can keep all your outdoor items together during the winter months.

Instead of searching for boat storage year after year, our outdoor boat storage facilities are ideal for keeping it safe through the coldest weather conditions. Plus, our secure storage units are great for protecting additional outdoor recreational items and watercraft like jet skis and kayaks.

How to Prep Your Boat for Storage

Before winterizing your boat for the season, there are a few essential steps you can complete to help prepare and protect your boat during storage. During the harsh winter cold, your boat is at greater risk of corrosion or possible water damage. However, protecting your boat against the harsher months of the year is manageable with the proper precautions.


Wash the exterior of your boat if you’ve used it in salt water to keep away salt water residue. Wax the entirety of your boat to help keep away rust or exterior damage during the winter. It also helps keep the shine and color throughout the climate changes. Cover the exposed interior of your boat with a protective cover and secure it to the appropriate outside attachments.


Flush out the engine and coolant system, and replace any coolant with antifreeze to help protect the engine during the harsh cold weather. Change the fuel, oil, and filters within your boat to be ready to go for the following season. Read your owner’s manual to see if you need to take other necessary precautions before placing your boat in storage.


The interior of your boat needs to be cleaned thoroughly before being placed into storage. Start by vacuuming the interior of your boat, then wipe down the rest. Remove any unnecessary fabric or canvas that could be exposed to the elements. Have moisture absorbents throughout the cabin of your boat to help prevent any mold or moisture build-up throughout the seasonal changes. Remove any unnecessary items, like food, electronics, toys, or personal items. They could be compromised during storage, so it’s best to keep these items close by.

Once all of the following steps are taken, your boat will be ready for any one of our outdoor boat storage facilities! At Sunbird Storage, we take safeguarding your stuff very seriously. That’s why we want to ensure your boat and other belongings are ready to stay in our facilities for the upcoming season.
