Virginia Beach is a temperate, East Coast beach town where the summers are hot and humid, but the winters are mild. There’s plenty to do around town, including checking out the three-mile-long boardwalk with its entertainment and many restaurants.
Still, if you’re an RV owner, you know that in most areas, parking your rig in front of your home is not allowed. Chances are, you need to keep it in self-storage.
Virginia Beach has 430 self-storage facilities, many of which have RV and boat storage. Whether you just bought your RV and are looking for storage, or you’re considering changing facilities, this article can help.
Ask About Benefits
An RV storage can be anything from a high-security parking lot to a well-kept building with individual, lockable garages for each rig. Some are simply a place to store your RV, while others want to make sure you can come and go whenever you like and provide certain support measures.
For example, a great RV facility might have septic removal for RVs and a water hookup. It might even sell propane and firewood, so you’ll be completely set before a big trip.
When vacationing in your RV, you may want to head out early to beat traffic. Due to long distances involved and unexpected delays, you may drive back into Virginia Beach at 3:00 am. Therefore, search for facilities with 24 hour access.
Opting for a Flexible Lease
Any vacation involves expenses, and one great thing about vacationing in an RV is that in general RV spaces cost less than hotel rooms. However, you’ll still need to pay for the restaurants and attractions you visit, plus gas, and any mementos you’d like to take home. So, if you can save money on self-storage while away, why not take advantage of the fact?
Find out which facilities offer flexible leases, and ask about the specific policies. You may be able to pay less while on vacation!
