GETTING READY FOR AN RV PURCHASE

Buying an RV is a big expense, whether you purchase a new or used model. Accordingly, before even stepping onto a lot or answering that ad in the paper, you’ll want to do your homework. Determining ahead of time what type of RV and what features fit your needs can make all the difference in getting a vehicle that suits your family. It can also save you a lot of money and regret in the future.

One of the biggest considerations is how you’ll use your RV. Some families only plan to travel nearby for weekend camping trips. Some plan to reside in the RV for all or a portion of the year. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, you’ll want to factor that in to the decision. Long-term living in an RV requires selecting amenities that won’t matter to a “weekend warrior.”

How much space you need is the next big decision to make. A couple can comfortably co-exist in a smaller vehicle. A family of five needs extra room to spread out. More amenities are great, but they often take up additional space. Planning to work or engage in hobbies while you travel? You’ll have to factor in the space needed for any equipment as well.

This is just a start to get some idea of your overall needs. Keep an eye on this blog for more things to consider, as well as information on the different types of RVs available. Once you purchase, Big Item Storage can help you protect your investment.

GET YOUR BOAT READY FOR HURRICANE SEASON

After going through Hurricane Harvey in 2017, many residents of the Gulf Coast are looking for ways to be better prepared for this season. For boat owners, there is an added urgency to make plans for protecting boats from the elements. Big Item Storage is a great option for short-term or long-term storage of your boat. We have the space you need to secure your boat inland, which minimizes the risk of damage.

Some boat owners play the odds when it comes to storms. But if your boat isn’t properly secured, you can face extensive damage later, or even a total loss. It doesn’t take a strong storm either—even a relatively minor storm can do heavy damage. With tropical storms and hurricanes, the continued high winds put strain on the boat and the dock. If you’re docked in a crowded marina, chances are you’ll have damages from debris and other boats.

Waiting to move your boat until the storm approaches is the worst thing you can do. You’ll have a hard time finding a spot at the last minute. It’s also very difficult to transport a boat out of town in traffic ahead of a storm. Not to mention, if you are forced to evacuate, you will likely have to leave your boat behind. But doing so can also make things worse. Storing your boat at home means having an item that can not only be damaged but also cause damage.

Instead, bring your boat to Big Item Storage. It will be protected from the elements in our storage units, yet you’ll have access to it at your convenience. You’ll know that you’ve protected your boat as much as possible, no matter the severity of the storm.
