Car Storage Preparation Tips

You can rest assured your car is safe in storage at Life Storage, but there are always ways to better prepare your car for storage. Let's take a look at some of the things you can do to give your car optimal protection while in storage.

Indoor Storage

  • Even though your vehicle is being stored in an enclosed unit, a car cover is a worthwhile investment to help keep dust off your car.

  • Remove the car battery to preserve its longevity and prevent acids from damaging the vehicle—especially if you plan to store your car during the cold season.

  • Finally, we recommend filling up the car with high-octane gas, antifreeze, and brake fluid, along with getting a fresh oil change before storing it. This will help prevent moisture forming in the tank or lines.

Outdoor Storage

  • Whether you take advantage of outdoor or covered vehicle storage, we advise a car cover to help prevent water spots, hail damage, and more from damaging your vehicle. We also recommend washing and waxing it to further protect the car's exterior.

  • Much like indoor car storage preparation, we recommend your vehicle have its fuel and fluid levels high before entering it into outdoor storage.

  • Finally, outdoor vehicle storage is optimal for working but inactive cars needing short-term storage of two months or less. Customers seeking long-term car storage with infrequent access may wish to consider indoor car storage, instead.
