    Timeshare Storage?

    We have decided we would like to invest in the storage route this year. While we don't mind giving away items we buy for the beach etc... it would be nice to leave some towels and snorkel gear behind.

    We own at Casa Del Mar. Is there anywhere close to there?

    I use Timeshare Storage. You can contact Joanne and Lou Bruno at timesharestorage@aol.com. Below is their infrom from last year. Their prices have changed, so contact them for their new info. When I spoke to them a few months ago, Lou suggested new customers bring a bin down with them to Aruba as his supplier has raised the prices for the bins.

    Items are stored in plastic 30 Gal Rubbermaid type containers. Cost for the container is $41.24 (one time cost).

    Storage for the year is $67.02 US. These prices include the new Aruba BBO (Sales) Tax implemented on January 1, 2007.


    There is a 50 lb weight limit. The overweight charge is $25 extra for 51 - 75 lbs. And an additional $25 extra for 76 - 100 lbs. But we would really appreciate keeping the weight below 50 lbs.

    Everything has to be stored in the Container. No Bags, Boxes, Chairs, etc, can be left outside the container. If any of these items are not in a container when we pick them up, we will not be able to take them.

    Containers for purchase may vary in size, material and price, as our reordering of depleted stock takes place. Approximate outside dimensions of the present containers in stock are 32"L x 19 1/2"W x 17" H.

    Our fee includes one pick up and drop off to your Resort per year. Additional deliveries/pick ups during that year are $20 US dollars Round Trip.

    We are a small company, and not large enough to accept credit cards. Because the bank charges a very high fee for cashing Foreign Checks, we can only accept cash.

    Lou and Joanne Bruno

    We also own at CasaDelMar and use Timeshare Storage. If you use them, Lou will deliver your bins when you arrive on the island and pick them up when you leave. You don't have to wrry abput taking yor things anywhere. We have been using them since they began their business and couldnt be any happier. Their rates are very reasonable.

    I really feel dumb.....

    When I read Andrea and others mention "get their things from time share storage" I thought they meant thier time share resort had a private storage area....LOL!

    I did not think CDM has one so I thought some are just luckier then others! HA!

    I will contact them for sure. This actually may kill two birds with one stone since I plan to bring supplies to the Kitten rescue. I can just put them in the container, untill we visit "the zoo" and then have it to store our things!

    Wow!!

    I really am not as dim witted as I seem on this board.....ok, maybe I am after several Brown Ladies!

    Thanks again!!

    Do you have to have a timeshare or can anyone use them?
    I would love to store stuff that would lighten the load with one boy and another on the way it would be nice to have some stuff there so we wont have to lug it all the way to Aruba.
