Winter Storage

Locked Storage Program

The Porter County Fair Board strives to maintain a quality locked storage service that has been ongoing through the Porter County Expo Center & Fair for several years. It is time to begin planning for storage of cars, trucks, motor homes, campers, boats, other smaller watercraft, motorcycles, concessions units and other items for the 2019-20 fall/winter/spring season. To ensure space for your units at the Porter County Fairgrounds Storage Facilities, please download the agreement below and return it with the full amount of the rental fee to the Porter County AG Society ASAP as space is reserved on a first come-first served basis. The rental rate is $16.00 per linear foot for all rental units except motorcycles, snowmobiles and/or jet skis are $8.00 per linear foot because they take up less width space. Please call or email for an appointment to store your unit(s) on the scheduled dates when convenient for you. You will be calling the Porter County Fair Locked Storage Coordinator’s cell phone at 219-465-8080 to schedule moving your unit(s) in and out of storage. DO NOT call the Porter County Expo Center Office as it is the Porter County Fair Staff that cares for all storage questions, concerns and scheduling situations for the 2019-20 season. 

We are confident that all storage space will be filled this year!! Therefore, we encourage you to get your agreement and payment back to the Ag Society (fair board) as soon as possible. We will determine how to accommodate those interested in space on a first come-first served basis. Please fill out the agreement completely, including your name, address, e-mail address, home phone and cell or work phone numbers. Also include the type of unit (camper, motor homes, boat, car, truck, motorcycle, watercraft, etc.) make, model, license plate or ID number, color and the exact measurement of the length and height of your unit. Automobiles and motor homes are measured bumper to bumper, and travel trailers and boat length is to include the tip of the hitch to the farthest point on the rear of the boat or trailer. Please measure your unit carefully before calculating the cost of rental for the season. Measurements that are questionable will be re-measured by the fair storage staff when the units are brought to the storage facility. 

NO repair and/or mechanical work (other than battery removal and/or replacement) may be done while in storage. NO battery chargers or other electrical hook-ups are allowed. Our staff will honor your request for you to start your unit’s engine occasionally by APPOINTMENT ONLY. We will have the storage facility locked and will supervise the storage facility when open. 

Call David Bagnall at 219-465-8080 or e-mail if you have questions you need answered and to schedule getting your unit(s) in and out of storage during this season.

NOTE: All units must be removed by April 25th, 2020. ANY UNIT REMAINING AFTER APRIL 25, 2020 WILL BE CHARGED A $50.00 PER DAY LATE PICK-UP FEE.
We can discuss any difficulties that may arise from these date expectations. 

If these dates and/or times do not meet your scheduling needs it is possible to make special arrangements, but a convenience fee will be charged and that fee will be determined based on the amount of time needed to get your unit situated in the storage building. The minimum convenience fee for non-scheduled dates & times for one hour or less will be $50.00. 

All units will be tagged with appropriate information as they are stored. We may ask that keys be left for some of the motorized vehicles stored in certain areas in our storage facilities. We do not plan to move units, but sometimes we must accommodate someone that has a special need or if an emergency arises. We would like all units to remain in storage until Saturday March 23th, but will honor your request to have your unit(s) removed prior to March 28th if you let us know prior to storing the unit THIS FALL. Those wishing to have early removal privileges will need to call in advance for an appointment to get the unit out. We need to place those “early out” units strategically for early removal. Those storing their units early are generally expected to leave them in storage the full length of the scheduled storage time. 

All storage times are to be by appointment only. Do not bring units to the fairgrounds or come to pick up units from storage without having an appointment.
