Storage Unit Rental Length

Consider how long you might need the storage unit. Ashley's Boat & RV Storage offers flexible lease terms, whether you need short-term or long-term storage.

Storage Unit Size

Estimate how much space you will require. Save money by only renting the space you need. If you need to store larger items including cars, camper and other motorized vehicles, Ashley's Boat & RV Storage has a unit or open parking to meet your storage needs.

Facility Access

How often will you need to access the unit? Ashley's Boat & RV Storage offers daily access, 5am-10 pm. Our office is open Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm, and Saturday, 10am-3pm. The office is closed on Sunday.

Climate Controlled Units

Are any of the items you plan to store sensitive to temperature or humidity? If so, you will most likely need a climate-controlled storage unit. Typically the following items need to be stored indoors with some type of climate-control: leathers, furs, clothing, paintings, film, photographs, furniture, antiques, musical instruments, wine, paper, software, DVDs, CDs and electronics.

Storage Unit Security

Ashley's Boat & RV Storage is safe and secure. Our facility is well-lit, and features perimeter fencing, gated access, and surveillance cameras. For added security for your unit, purchase a high quality lock. We recommended the disk lock, which is available for purchase at our Office.

Storage Unit Safety Tips

Do not store anything flammable (such as paint or other chemicals) or perishable items. Drain any fluids prior to storing blowers, lawnmowers, and other equipment. Do not store hazardous or combustible materials.
