Storing watercraft in Brooklyn for the winter.

Tips for storing watercraft in Brooklyn

Having the pleasure of owning some type of watercraft and using it in New York City is quite amazing. And not many people have it. This is not for everyone, and watercraft require a lot of work and maintenance. Normally, you don’t use it all year round. And when you don’t use it, you need to put it somewhere, right? That is one of the reasons why storing watercraft in Brooklyn is quite important, and you need to know how to do it properly. Of course, you won’t be able to do it on your own. But you shouldn’t worry about it. There are amazing Brooklyn movers and storage services that are here for these kinds of purposes. With their help, you can have your watercraft no matter what it is safely stored in the storage and you can use it whenever you need it.

Storing watercraft in Brooklyn is very important, and here is why…

During summertime, having some kind of watercraft can be very fun. You get to enjoy each day in the water, doing various things. It depends on the type of watercraft that you own. But, unfortunately, water temperature and weather in New York are not always good for these kinds of activities. Already in autumn, the temperature of the water is dropping, and so is the weather outside. And this is only one of the reasons why storing watercraft in Brooklyn is very important. Since things like this are not cheap at all, you need to take well care of them. And if you don’t store it during the wintertime, you won’t be able to use it again the next spring and summer. Especially if you don’t do it properly.

No matter what is it that you have, storing watercraft in Brooklyn for the colder days is very important.

It is not only taking it outside of the water and putting it into storage units Brooklyn can provide you with. It is a lot more than that. Expect that you will have a bit of maintenance to do. But fortunately, it is nothing too complicated that you won’t be able to deal with. And after all, there are your movers which will give you a storage option. You can always ask either them for help, or someone of your friends or relatives.

There are different kinds of storage options and you need to know which one is suitable for your watercraft

Before you make any kind of a decision and decide to call Brooklyn moving services, you need to consider some things first. You need to research a little bit about storage units, and figure out what is it exactly that you are looking for. There are plenty of storage options to choose from, and before you relocate your watercraft, you should know where you want to do it. We can separate storage units by their type and by the size of the unit. When it comes to their types, you have:

  • Climate-controlled storage
  • Drive-up storage
  • Indoor and outdoor storage
  • Business storage
  • Student storage
  • 24-hour storage
  • Vehicle storage
  • Military storage

As you may notice, there are different types of storage for different purposes. And what is even more important is the size of it. Not all people have the same amount of the things they want to store. For this reason, you need to know what are the sizes, so you can choose the most suitable one for your watercraft and purposes.

  • 5×5
  • 5×7
  • 5×10
  • 10×10
  • 10×15
  • 10×20
  • 10×30

Depending on your watercraft, choose a proper storage unit and size.

Once you know what kind of storage option you are looking for, storing watercraft in Brooklyn requires some cleaning and checking first

Finding the perfect storage unit for your needs might be a little bit time-consuming. And this is completely normal and expected. But once you finally find your long-term storage, it is time for action. You will have to prepare your watercraft before you put it in there for the winter. And the first and the main step is to clean it. You need to clean it thoroughly and give it a good scrub. Both inside and outside. At the same time, this is a perfect chance and time to check up on your watercraft to realize if it needs some repairments and touch-ups. Also, after you have cleaned and scrubbed it, you can add the wax in the end. This is for sure the best way to keep your watercraft completely safe during winter. Especially if you don’t have climate-controlled storage, which is the best when it comes to protection.

After your watercraft is completely clean and dry, it is time to check it one more time. A little bit better now. You will need to perform mechanical maintenance and checks before you are one hundred percent sure your watercraft is ready to stay the whole winter there. This is important also for the spring. If you do all of these things now, before you store it, it will be ready on warm days for use straight away. If your watercraft has an engine, you should change the oil. Another thing that is important, but many people forget, is to fuel in the tank to the top. And of course, you should disconnect the battery. For the wheel, if your watercraft has one, you should lube it, to make sure it stays the same way once it’s time to use it again.

You will have to cover your watercraft, and put it on a proper trail

It is very important that you put your watercraft on a trail. If it is something smaller like a canoe, you can improvise a little bit with wooden pallets, for instance. But either way, you need to make sure it is completely secured, on a flat surface. If this is not a possible option, you can use some blocks to make sure it stays secured there where you left it. Another thing that is important for the watercraft is that you cover everything. A good cover can protect your belongings from various things. Especially if you choose the outdoor storage option. You will have to invest a little bit, but it is mandatory and needed.

Use the other space of your storage for things you might need

Since you will clean your watercraft and probably deal with the maintenance, having a shelf in your storage is obviously needed. You can either make your own or simply buy a storage rack online and have it delivered to the address of your storage. You can also use it for some tools and other kinds of equipment that you own. Use the space as much as possible, since you will have it until the summer for sure, or maybe even longer. It will be worth it, and it’s useful for various things.
