SmartStop® Self Storage has the right automobile storage solution near you.
There are a couple of reasons why you would want to keep your car in a self-storage unit. You could have recently bought a new vehicle, but don't have room for it at your home. Maybe you didn't plan on taking in a relative's car while they are out of the state or country and you need to ensure that it is kept safe. Whatever the case may be, automobile self-storage is the best way to protect your car from the elements and the possibility of theft.
Choosing A Size
Choosing a size can be tricky, and measuring your car is the best way to determine the right size. If you are considering indoor storage, remember to allow for space to get into and out of your car, as well as enough height to drive in. It needs to clear the door. For either indoor or outdoor spaces, a good rule of thumb for compact and small cars is 10' wide by 15' deep. For full size cars you'll want to go with a minimum of 20' in depth.
Storing automobiles have additional requirements. The car must be in running condition, or loaded onto a trailer. You will be asked to show the registration and/or title of the car. The vehicle is also subject to local taxes that vary.
