My '00 trailer is in need of a repainting, new bunk carpet and what not. There's really nowhere that I have access to where I can leave it in the water for a couple of days. There is a dry boat storage warehouse nearby though where they lift the boats up onto racks. It's nowhere near the water though so it looks like they rack the boats, trailer and all.

I'm going to call them but do these sorts of places typically accept inboards without trailers? Would they typically take a boat only for a week or two? Or would they want you to commit to longer term storage? What should I expect to pay for this?

What boat do you have?

Talk to a local towing company and see if they can lift it in your driveway so you can set it on blocks. If its small like a prostar they could first lift the stern and block it then lift the bow, pull the trailer out and block the bow.

230 VRS. So, it's kinda big.

Up here it is $10-$12 per foot to hoist. So you'd have that twice theb a storage fee. $100 for a month.
