Another Option

We use the U-Stor-it which is located just behind the Ft Lauderdale airfield and next to the cruise port. They have open field parking for all sorts of vehicles, we even see construction equip in there. Info
2010 Ne 7Th Avenue Dania Beach, FLFacility Phone Number: (954) 525-3040
We have stayed at the Hampton Inn and they have a shuttle that we use, they specialize in the cruise crowd.

Thanks, I checked w/ the Hallendale storage mentioned yesterday. They are still an option but they charge a months storage minimum and it would come to about $110 with the admin charges. They cannot pro-rate it for the week we're looking for so I will still look around but they are there for us if nothing else turns up. I will check the one mentioned about also by eagleye.

Thanks all, appreciate the suggestions

Just picked up our truck and trailer from Hallendale Storage. Everything was as we had left it, no problems. Staff is courteous and helpful. Cost was $140.00 for 26 days. I spoke with a lady who runs a private campground near the port. She was asking $275.00 for the month. (truck and trailer)

Hope this helps. Let us know what you finally go with.

I spoke to the people at the U-store it. They were very nice but also charge a month minimum. So with their admin charges it would be just about $110. BUT, she told me they were going to run a special and give 1st. month free so it would only run about $20. That sounds like a go to me. I'll check with them when we get closer and jump on that train if it leaves the station.

Thanks all for the suggestions.
Glad things worked out so well for you Kids. It's so nice when long distance plans just fall into place. Nice job on that one. How was parking at the port terminal ???? Or did you leave your truck with the trailer ????

Thanks, Merry Christmas, take care

Hi Roger;

Yes we left our truck with our trailer and took a cab to the terminal. Cab fare was $35.00 each way.

Sounds like you have found a deal. I felt better about leaving my truck and trailer in a secure area behind a fence rather than out in a field somewhere.

Enjoy your cruise.

Glad you had a good cruise and a safe spot. I too feel the same way. We plan to drive to the port and park out truck there. At least at this time that is.

Hope the rest of your travels are just as good.
See ya on the road sometime
