Long Term Storage Tips

  1. To protect your vehicle from the elements, it is critical that a vehicle cover provides coverage for the entire body.
  2. Prior to storing, it is recommended that the vehicle be completely cleaned. Adding a layer of wax is also recommended for additional protection.
  3. Fill your fuel tank up even if the storage unit is within close proximity. Add a fuel stabilizer as well if you plan on storing it for over 30 days.
  4. No one wants to come back to their vehicle only to find out the tires are flat. Prevent this by filling your tires to the manufacturers maximum PSI.
  5. For peace of mind, it is a good idea to keep your insurance on your vehicle current. In the event of the emergency, it is good to know you can use your car and know that it is insured.

Outdoor and indoor parking for vehicles are offered at many of our locations. A great deal of our locations also provide space for boats and RVs. Regardless of their features, all of our Storage Sense locations have the self-storage experts to help you with long-term storage. Do you think you will need long-term storage?
