Before you rent, read these tips about using self storage in Coeur d’Alene:

RV and Boat Storage Near Coeur d’Alene Lake 

Many Idaho tourists become locals after seeing the beautiful waters of Coeur d’Alene Lake. The pristine body of water is quintessential western wilderness. If you live in Coeur d’Alene or you’re moving here, you likely enjoy lake activities like boating, jet skiing, fishing for salmon and bass, camping in your RV or just sipping a great local beer and watching the sunset. For folks who are lucky enough to own RVs or boats in Coeur d’Alene, finding a place to store these vehicles during the winter months can prove challenging. You might not have driveway space or your HOA may forbid you from parking those larger vehicles in front of your home. Fear not. Storelocal at Coeur d’Alene has 9x30 parking spaces in an open lot. Prices are low, but RV and boat spaces in Coeur d’Alene are in high demand, so if you need boat storage or RV storage this year, reserve early.

Ski and Snowboard Storage Near Lookout Pass Ski Area

More of a winter sport enthusiast? You’ll thrive when it gets frosty in Coeur d’Alene. On average, Coeur d’Alene gets 42 inches of snow per year, which is great news if you love skiing and snowboarding. Take advantage of nearby ski areas including Silver Mountain, Schweitzer Mountain Resort and Lookout Pass Ski Area and then rent a storage unit at Storelocal at Coeur d’Alene once the snow melts. Be sure to thoroughly clean your skis and snowboards and wash and dry your snow pants, ski jacket and other winter gear. Storing damp items in your storage unit can lead to mildew, and you want your items in prime condition to hit the slopes as soon as temperatures drop in Idaho. 

Rent a Storage Unit with Excellent Security Features

Don’t store just anywhere—store at a facility with security features that keep your belongings safe. Whether you’re renting a storage unit in Coeur d’Alene for a month, a year or forever, you want to make sure it’s well taken care of. At our Coeur d’Alene storage facility, you’ll find 24-hour cameras, LED lighting, gated access and high walls. We also recommend locking your storage unit with a disc lock. That’s the best kind, and we sell them right on-site. You should also opt for self storage insurance. It’s very low-cost and it’ll protect the items in your storage unit. Take the time to make an inventory of what you’re storing along with pictures and approximate value, as this will speed up the process if you need to make a claim.
