Using A Garage To Store Your Boat

Using a Garage to Store Your Boat

Storing your boat indoors—whether in between trips or for the winter—will help protect it from the elements and extend its life.

The most ideal scenario would be to store the boat and trailer on your property. A garage would be a logical storage solution. 

Don't have a garage? Or is your boat just a little too long to store in your garage? You're in luck! We have solutions for both of these problems!

Try practical and creative options first.

If you think your boat may fit in your garage, but when eye-balling it, it seems just a bit too small, try reorganizing as a first step. Aim to free up as much space as possible.

Once your garage space is optimized, back your boat into your garage. You may find that 1-2" of the boat protrude from the garage. Here's where the Trailer Valet will help tremendously. This tool can help to maneuver your boat into the available space. How is this possible? Read this article then watch the video below.  

Don't assume that your boat will fit into your garage just because it's longer than the length of your boat. Be mindful of the shape of the stern and the shape of the trailer since this will significantly affect the maneuvering of both.

Know the dimensions of your boat before buying a garage.
