5 Benefits of Outdoor Storage

Are you looking for somewhere to store your car, boat, camper, or truck? Let me guess, your neighbors are annoyed with the big boat blocking not only your driveway, but part of theirs too? It’s time that you look into outdoor storage! We give you tips on what you need to look for and be aware of when looking for the best unit for you.

Outdoor storage is similar to a large parking garage. Many people use outdoor storage for large items that will not fit in a closed unit such as boats, RVs and campers, trucks, and sometimes cars. It is often just cement, asphalt, or gravel with coverings and sometimes surrounded by basic open walls. Depending on the facility and what you are looking for outdoor storage can resemble your New York City parking garage that costs $90/month or can be as simple as an open area to store your RV.

Outdoor self-storage is a benefit for many reasons. Here are listed just a few benefits for you:

1. Affordable rates

Having prices based per square foot allows outdoor storage to be one of the most affordable types of   storage. If you don’t need a large amount of space, you can pay very little. At Albuquerque Self Storage we have lots between 20’ and 35’ for you to choose from.

2. Amenities

While every facility is set up differently, most facilities offer amenities for outdoor storage such as metal roofs or hookups for RVs to protect your items. Having a roof hanging over your vehicle or boat can protect it from sun damage, but don’t forget to protect your items with a cover to even more prevent sun damage and insects ruining your valuables.

3. Business Solution

Short haul trucking companies require parking spots to keep their trucks when they aren’t in use. Landscaping businesses and other companies that require large areas of land to store their business equipment require outdoor storage.

4. Reasonable parking

In metropolitan areas with extremely expensive parking, outdoor storage is the answer. Consider outdoor storage when you want to save a buck on your parking spot.

5. Location
