Types of Car Storage

Outdoor - A parking space is exactly what it sounds like: an area for you to park your car. The parking area may be paved or on a variety of unpaved surfaces including gravel, dirt, or an open field on the storage facility’s grounds.

Covered - With covered car storage, you’ll typically park your car under a standalone roof alongside other cars, though some covered units do have three walls separating your car from the rest. Though you won’t get as much protection as from an enclosed unit or indoor, the roof structure will protect your car from the harshest elements.

Indoor - With indoor car storage, your car will be parked inside a large structure such as a warehouse with other cars. Indoor car storage provides the same protection from the elements as enclosed storage, but since your car will be in a shared space there will may be different access requirements.

Enclosed - Enclosed car storage is the safest and most secure means of storing your car. These are large self-storage units that essentially act as garages you can drive your car straight into, and are accessed via a large roll-up door. Enclosed units provide protection from winter weather and prevent any unwanted access to your car.
