Planning to store your car, boat, motorcycle, or RV? There are a variety of vehicle storage types, each with their own considerations. As you go about your vehicle storage search, you’ll want to keep in mind the pros and cons of each.

The four common types of vehicle storage offered at self-storage facilities are:

Enclosed Vehicle Storage

enclosedEnclosed Vehicle Storage is the safest and most secure means of storing your vehicle. These are large self-storage units that essentially act as garages you can drive your vehicle 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 vehicle.

Enclosed Vehicle Storage

Indoor Vehicle Storage

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

Indoor Vehicle Storage

Covered Vehicle Storage

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









Vehicle Parking Spaces
