As we creep deeper into winter, you may be wondering about storage options for vehicles that do not get much use during the cold months. Each of our self storage facilities offers either outdoor parking or drive-up storage. Boats, trailers, extra cars, and RVs do not need to take up space on your property. Just reserve parking at the location closest to you, prepare your vehicle for storage, and drop it off. Read our tips below for getting your vehicle ready for storage!
Before putting your car away in storage, you will want to clean the inside and outside the best you can. Vacuum and wipe down the interior to get rid of crumbs and trash that might attract pests. For the exterior, scrub off dirt that could damage your paint job over time. You do not want to come back to rust on your vehicle. Give it a good waxing for good measure.
The best way to avoid moisture in your gas tank is to fill it all the way up. Storing a vehicle for more than three months requires some extra care, however. If your car is going to be idle for a long period of time, add stabilizer to the gas tank to absorb moisture and prevent varnish and gum.
