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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right size storage unit for my car?

Look up or measure your actual car length. If you have a trailer hitch or car attachment (rack, winch, grille guard), be sure to add it to your car’s length measurement, and size up so you have buffer space in storage.

What should I do to prepare my car for indoor storage?

  1. Change the oil, filter, brake fluid and coolant.
  2. Fill or empty your gas tank, depending on your facility’s storage requirements. For long-term storage: Use a fuel stabilizer to prevent gas from deteriorating.
  3. Disconnect the battery.
  4. Take care of your tires: For short-term storage: Rotate and over-inflate tires. For long-term storage: Raise your car on jack stands and remove wheels.
  5. Remove your windshield wipers.
  6. Use a car cover to prevent dust, dirt and pests from getting in.
  7. Release your parking brake. If you left the wheels on, stick chocks under the wheels instead.

What should I do to prepare my car for outdoor storage?

Sun and rain damage are the two main concerns when storing your car outside. The best way to protect your car against both elements is to use a high-quality car cover with moisture-wicking material.

If you don’t use a car cover, wax your car and use a paint protection film kit to protect areas that will receive a lot of direct sunlight. Cover your headlights with protective film.

Prevent sun damage to your tires by keeping them covered and out of the sun. Be sure to also touch up existing paint damage and exposed metal to protect against rust.

I’m taking my car out of storage soon. What should I know?

  1. Clean your car, check for pests, and wipe off dirt and dust.
  2. Check that fluids are at an adequate level and in good condition. Refill anything that appears low.
  3. Check the rubber parts of your car for cracks, especially tires and windshield wipers.
  4. Check tire pressure and look for flat spots.
  5. Re-attach your battery and start your car.
  6. Run your car for a few minutes to make sure everything functions properly.
  7. Slowly drive your car around the storage facility and test out the brakes. Your brakes may have accumulated rust, but this should wear away after use.
  8. Be cautious and attentive to any signs of damage during the few days of driving.

How tall are indoor storage units?

Most indoor storage units are eight ft. tall.

Does my car need to meet certain requirements for storage?

Your car must be insured and in working condition. Please also have your title, registration and insurance information ready.
