Whether you are waiting to move into a new home, office space, or need a covered secure place to store your family’s boats/RVs, Foothills Self Storage Inc. has the solution for you. Self storage units in Loveland CO are an inexpensive place to dry-dock your boat for the winter. However, you’ll want to take a few steps to properly prepare your boat for long-term boat storage. These preparations will ensure that your boat is ready for use when the temperatures rise again.

  1. Clean your boat thoroughly before putting it into storage. This will allow you to see any damage to the boat that needs to be repaired.
  2. Make any necessary repairs that need to be done before you put your boat in self storage. This is so that when you retrieve your boat in the spring or summer, you’ll be able to get back on the water as soon as possible.
  3. Winterize the boat’s motor. Most boats should have fuel stabilizer added to the motor before putting it in self-storage. Read your boat’s manual for specific instructions on how best to prepare your motor for winter.
  4. Flush the cooling system. You can purchase a flushing kit from a boat supply store or a boat dealer. When you call to rent self-storage, you may also be able to purchase additional supplies for winterizing your boat.

Once your boat is ready for storage, look to rent a self storage unit in Loveland CO at Foothills Self Storage. We provide electric gates, proper lighting, and managers who live on our premises 24/7/365.
