What To Do When Storing Your Car?

Winter car storage

There are many benefits to storing your vehicle, especially during the winter months. Professional auto storage allows you to store your summer vehicles during the winter months, and avoid any weather based property damage. This is a nice little thing to have if you’re a car collector and have a few gems in your collection you want to remain in mint condition.

Like RV storage, car storage is designed with the safety and security of the vehicle in mind. The storage unit will be locked so only you, or those with the key will be able to have access. This is good for a collector car storage unit, as you might have some very expensive vehicles inside, and theft would hurt you both financially, and emotionally if you’ve had the car for a while.

Like RV storage, you’ll have the option of storing your cars inside or outside. If you’re dealing with a classic car, worth a lot of sentimental and monetary value, it might be wise to pay a little more to keep it secure.

If it’s an old car, more beat up and of less value, paying less for an outdoor storage area may be fine. Just keep a tarp or something similar over it to prevent the worst of the damage. Though, keep in mind that it is still exposed to the elements.

Before you move your car into secure car storage, it would be a good idea to take a look at the unit and make sure it’s clean and dry. While dampness may not cause too many issues, it may suggest that the car storage units are not as secure as initially believed and that you should maybe consider another storage location.

You might also want to fill your car’s tank, and change the oil before moving it into the unit, as the long-term inactivity might cause some issues. And, you never know if you might take it out for a spin if the weather gets better early. Taking out the spark plugs is also a good idea, as it will help stop theft and prevent anyone from being able to drive it.

So no matter your reasons for storing your car, it’ll be in good hands as long as you take the time to find the right location. If you have any questions about vehicle storage, contact us!
