Question Questions to ask a Boat yard for Storage

Below is my list so far. If anyone can add to it, I would appreciate it.

Also, if anyone has suggestions/comments/reviews of boat yards in and around Salem/Danvers/Manchester/Marblehead, I would greatly appreciate some guidance so I dont get burned. I have already been warned away from Beverly Marina, but that is based on feedback from Yelp that's about 2 years old.

I know it might seem weird to be asking these questions now, but I have been told to start calling now to reserve a spot....

QUESTIONS for a boat yard:

Cost for....
bottom wash?
jack stands rental?
de-mast/de-rig and then re-rig?
Can owner work on boat?
Yard rates for work?

You need to ask about the schedule:
How much notice do they want before you get hauled?
What is the latest haul out date (if you are crazy like me and want to sail as late as possible)
What is the earliest launch date?
What happens if they want to launch you and you are not ready (some yards either force you in or charge you to move your boat to get to another)

And a few more about the rigging:
Who disconnects / reconnects the mast wiring (lights, radio, etc.) before the mast is stepped?
Who is responsible for removing and storing the boom?
Who tunes the rig in the spring?

And lastly:
Can you bring your own contractor into the yard? If so, is there a fee for that.

That's about it from me.
