When the fall rolls around, you want to be sure one of your most precious possessions, your boat, has a safe place to rest over winter. If you’re looking for boat storage in Kelowna, follow these tips to make sure you’re getting secure storage, good value and a convenient location.  


1. Ask what types of boat storage they have available

Outdoor storage is a great way to free up room in your driveway or garage over winter. When you’re getting quotes about outdoor boat storage, be sure to ask what kind of surface the boats are parked on. A paved area like ours helps you keep your boat, your trailer tires and your towing vehicle in top shape.


2. Inquire about security

Here are some critical questions to ask about security:

  • Do you have a coded entry and exit? What time does the gate close? You’ll have more peace of mind and protection if they close in the early evening.
  • Does security personnel patrol your storage site after hours?
  • Do you have a residence on-site? Some Kelowna storage companies such as ours have on-site tenants to keep an extra eye on things after hours.
  • What kinds of security technology do you use, such as security cameras and motion detectors?


3. Ask about access

Be sure to note when and how you can get into the secure area so you know if the opening hours will work with your needs and offer the security you’re looking for.


4. Consider the location

There’s a good chance that next spring and summer, you could be coming by to pick up and drop off your boat frequently. If you think about how much time and fuel that’ll take, it helps if your Kelowna boat storage company has a location that’s near where you live or where you’ll be going.

We’re just a 10-minute drive from the airport and conveniently located along Highway 97, your gateway some of the best boating spots in the Okanagan.


5. Ask about price

Boat storage rates are usually based on the size and length of your boat. When you call to get your quote for boat storage, remember all those other things the rate includes—easy access, security, convenient location, etc.—so you can protect your boat and save more time and money for boating!
