Exploring Vehicle Storage Options

Hello, my name is Devon Vester. I am here to talk to you about vehicle storage options. I have a strong passion for vehicles of all kinds. As a result, I am always picking up vintage vehicles to fix and sell. Unfortunately, I only have one authorized parking spot in front of my home. I cope with this limitation by storing all of my acquired vehicles in a high quality facility. Storage facilities offer outdoor and indoor storage options for vehicles. Indoor options may even be temperature and humidity controlled to protect the paint and interior materials. I hope to explore all of the storage options to help you pick the best unit for your vehicles. I will talk about the different vehicle parts that benefit from sitting in a garage rather than staying outdoors in the elements. Thank you.

Preparing A Hot Tub Or Spa For Move Day


If you own a hot tub or spa, a full-service moving company can safely transport it and all your other belongings to your new home. However, while the moving company will handle the transportation process, you should take steps to prepare for the move day. To ensure you protect your hot tub and avoid issues during the move, learn more about what you should do to prepare. 

Drain the Spa

The first step in the preparation process is to drain all the water from the spa but keep in mind that this process involves more than simply opening the release valve. First, you must ensure the power supply is connected and any nearby items have been moved. 

Next, connect one side of a regular garden hose to the valve release and move the other end to the area in your lawn where you want the water to drain. Keep in mind that water flows from the spa in more of a trickle than it does a rush, so you should begin this process about a week or two before your move to ensure you have ample time to complete the other steps in the preparation process. 

Manually Dry the Spa

The release valve is designed to remove water from the spa, but it will not remove all the water. Moving a spa with even a tiny amount of water is never good, as water leakage during the move can damage the spa and any of your other household goods nearby. 

For this reason, you will need to complete the rest of the drying process manually. While you can use several towels to complete this process over several hours, using a wet vac is much more efficient. It will remove the water faster and allow you to get excess water out of tight spaces, such as around the jets. 

Remove Stains and Debris

The spa will likely be transported in a non-climate-controlled trailer for several days if the move involves long-distance travel. For moves during the warmer months of the year, any remaining bacteria or debris inside a spa can prompt staining.

To avoid this, moving companies typically suggest owners thoroughly clean the spa after the drying process to ensure any mold, mildew, or other growth-promoting particles are removed from the spa. 

In addition to these steps, speak with a full-service moving company to learn whether they have the necessary equipment to move a hot tub.
