Do you need indoor vehicle storage? How much does vehicle storage cost? How to safely store a vehicle in the first place? This guide will answer all of those questions and more!
Vehicle Storage Options
The first question you should consider when storing your vehicle is whether or not it can be stored outdoors, or if you need indoor vehicle storage. Let's take a closer look at some of the things you need to know before deciding between indoor or outdoor vehicle storage.
Indoor or enclosed vehicle storage is great for safely storing most small to mid-sized vehicles like cars, motorcycles, ATVs, and more!
These drive-up access units are perfect for keeping stored vehicles safe from weather damages, and maintaining a more consistent storage environment than other vehicle storage options—making indoor vehicle storage an ideal long-term storage solution.
Outdoor vehicle storage is an excellent option for RVs and trailers—along with large vehicles that may not do as well in enclosed spaces, like boats or jet skies.
With the increased accessibility and affordability of Life Storage's outdoor vehicle storage options, these large parking spaces are perfect for both short-term and long-term storage for all types of vehicles. Some of our outdoor vehicle storage spaces are covered to provide additional protection from the elements.
