Store your boat, RV at High Rock Lake Storage
By Paris Goodnight
If you’ve got a large boat or RV you need to store, Dr. Bill Webb has a place for you.
He’s opening High Rock Lake Storage Inc. at 4290 Long Ferry Road, starting with one 120-by-80-foot building and planning for up to five more if the concept takes off.
He looked around this area all the way to Lake Norman and Mooresville but never found a facility built just to handle oversized items like recreation vehicles, pontoon boats and hobby cars.
“There will be no 10-by-10 units. We’re not catering to the small stuff,” he said, but focusing on “motor homes and big, big stuff.”
He said he once owned an RV and never found an acceptable place to store, but knows the weather damages such items when they’re left outside for extended periods.
The first building will have 16 bays, each 15-by-40-feet, with 14-foot high electric doors. The ceilings will be 23 feet high, leaving plenty of room if you needed to go on top of an RV or tractor-trailer to work on it.
He picked the location, which is near developments on Goodman Lake Road, because it’s only 3 miles off the interstate and 6 miles from Tamarac Marina on High Rock Lake.
He said he has plenty of fenced-in space but would like to keep all items stored inside for appearance. He also has plans for separate bath/washing facilities and a sewage dump for RV users.
He’s charging $150 a month to start for a 600-square-foot unit with lights, electricity hookups and an electric door. He plans to finish the building and get final inspections later this month or by mid-October.
