Frequently Asked Questions

Can I store other items in my vehicle storage unit?

In a vehicle storage unit, which is mainly intended for storing vehicles such as cars, motorcycles, boats, or RVs, it is possible to store other items as well, but this largely depends on the policies of the storage facility and local regulations. Many storage facilities allow you to store any additional items in the unit as long as they are properly organized and do not pose a risk to the vehicle or the facility. For instance, an individual may store automotive supplies, tools, or seasonal items with their vehicle. However, it is important to be mindful that there are often restrictions on the types of items that can be stored, particularly when the stored materials are hazardous or may pose a safety risk Before using a vehicle storage unit for storing additional items, it’s recommended to review the terms and conditions of the storage agreement and,  ask the storage facility what is allowed and what is prohibited.

The best times to utilize a vehicle storage facility really depend on your individual needs, climate, and the type of vehicle being stored. The most obvious circumstances would be such as:

  1. Winter Storage: If you own a vehicle that is not suitable for winter conditions, such as a classic car, sports car, or motorcycle, it is a good idea to store it in a storage facility during the winter months. This protects the vehicle from snow, ice, and road salt, which can cause rust and damage.
  2. Seasonal Vehicles: For vehicles like RVs, boats, or convertibles that are primarily used during certain seasons, storing them in a facility during the off-season can free up space at home and keep them safe from weather elements.
  3. Extended Travel: If you are going to be away for an extended period, such as a long vacation or work assignment, it is wise to store your vehicle in a secure facility. This prevents theft and protects it from weather damage.
  4. Limited Home Parking: If you have limited parking space at home or live in an area with strict parking regulations, utilizing a vehicle storage facility can be a practical solution for storing extra vehicles or large vehicles like RVs and boats.
  5. During Renovations: If you are renovating your home or garage, using a storage facility can protect your vehicle from construction debris and free up space needed for the renovation process.
  6. Before a Sale or Show: If you are planning to sell your vehicle or display it at a show, storing it in a facility can keep it in pristine condition and ensure it’s looking its best when it’s time to sell or display it.
