We offer drive-up storage units as well as outdoor parking spaces that can accommodate your vehicle as winter storage or a long-term solution. Follow the tips below to prepare your vehicle before putting it in storage.

Clean Interior and Exterior

Cleaning should always be your first step in vehicle storage. If you put it into storage freshly cleaned, you will come back to a car that is ready to drive. Giving your car a good wash and wax before covering it will help protect the paint job. The same efforts should be taken on the inside of the vehicle. Any kind of food smell will attract pests, so be sure to vacuum well and get rid of any trash.

Take Care of Gas and Oil

Fill your gas tank to avoid any kind of moisture buildup in the tank. Adding stabilizer can also help prevent moisture, as well as gum and varnish. And if you are storing for three months or more, you should change your oil.
