Just because you don’t have room in your driveway or garage doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to store your vehicle in a reliable location. Whether you need to store a car, motorcycle, watercraft, or RV, our vehicle self storage solutions offer a secure, accessible, and flexible option to keep your vehicle in top condition while not in use. Understand the benefits and options for vehicle storage to make the best choice for your needs.

Why Choose Vehicle Storage?

Wondering whether it makes sense to seek storage for one or more of your vehicles? Consider the following features and benefits. 

  • Security. Most storage facilities are equipped with advanced security features such as gated access, 24/7 surveillance, and well-lit areas to ensure your vehicle is protected at all times.
  • Space saving. Free up space in your garage or driveway while keeping your vehicle stored off-site.
  • Flexibility. Short- and long-term storage options are available to accommodate different needs, whether you’re storing seasonally or for the long haul. 

Types of Vehicle Storage

At Central Self-Storage, we offer parking spots for all types of vehicles, boats, RVs, and campers, in addition to units with enough square footage to store your vehicle within an enclosed space. A few potential options for the location of vehicle storage include. 

  • Outdoor storage. This is likely the most cost-effective option, suitable for large vehicles like RVs and boats that may not require protection from the elements.
  • Covered storage. A roof over your vehicle provides protection from sun and precipitation and is ideal for long-term storage of cars, motorcycles, and smaller boats.
  • Indoor storage. This is the premium option for maximum protection against environmental factors. It’s suitable for classic cars, luxury vehicles, and motorcycles.

Selecting the Best Storage for Your Vehicle

Consider the following when selecting a storage option.

  • Size and type of vehicle. Ensure the storage space accommodates your vehicle’s dimensions, including height and width.
  • Accessibility. Some facilities offer a wide range of access hours, which is beneficial if you need to use your vehicle frequently.
  • Location. While it may be ideal to choose a facility close to home, you may also want to choose one positioned closer to a body of water for boat owners or along a route you frequently travel for easy access to your vehicle.

Preparation Tips for Vehicle Storage

An essential piece of ensuring your vehicle remains in top shape is properly preparing it to be stored.

  • Maintenance. Perform routine maintenance such as oil changes and fluid checks before storage to keep your vehicle in good working order.
  • Cleaning. Wash and wax your vehicle to protect the finish, and clean the interior to prevent mold and odors.
  • Protection. Consider using tire protectors and vehicle covers for added protection during storage, especially for long-term arrangements.
