How do I move my vehicle out of storage?

To move your vehicle out of storage, begin by checking your insurance to ensure it’s active and appropriate for your needs. Next, thoroughly inspect the vehicle for any damage or issues, such as flat tires or rodent damage, that may have occurred during storage. If your vehicle has been in storage for an extended period, it’s wise to change the oil, check all fluid levels, and recharge or replace the battery if necessary. Inflate the tires to the recommended pressure and check for any signs of pests or critters. Once your vehicle is in good condition, start it and let it run for a few minutes to ensure everything is working properly. Finally, carefully drive the vehicle out of storage, paying attention to its responsiveness and handling to ensure it’s roadworthy before resuming regular use.

The best material to cover your vehicle with while in storage depends on the specific storage conditions and your goals for protection. Here are some common options:

  1. Breathable Car Cover: If you’re storing your vehicle indoors or in a climate-controlled environment, a breathable car cover made from materials like cotton or polyester is a good choice. It allows air circulation while protecting your vehicle from dust and minor scratches.
  2. Weatherproof Car Cover: For outdoor storage or if your vehicle will be exposed to the elements, a weatherproof cover made from materials like nylon or polypropylene with a waterproof or water-resistant coating is advisable. These covers offer protection against rain, snow, UV rays, and other weather-related elements.
  3. Custom-Fit Car Cover: Whenever possible, opt for a custom-fit car cover designed for your vehicle’s make and model. Custom-fit covers provide a snug fit, which is essential for maximum protection and preventing wind from getting underneath the cover.
  4. UV-Resistant Cover: If your vehicle will be exposed to strong sunlight, choose a cover with UV protection. UV-resistant covers help prevent paint fading and damage caused by prolonged sun exposure.
  5. Soft Lining: Look for a cover with a soft, non-abrasive lining on the inside to avoid scratches on the vehicle’s paint.
