The Many Benefits of Vehicle Storage

Most people think about furniture, collectibles, antiques, store overstock, and other items when storing things. However, in many cases, storing vehicles is also a necessity. If you own a boat, for example, but your HOA doesn’t allow boats to be parked in your driveway, storing it at a storage facility will be necessary.

The same applies to RVs, cars, motorcycles, and even snowmobiles. If you don’t have a garage, live in an apartment, or don’t have extra storage space, a storage facility is your best solution. Storing a vehicle in a storage facility such as Storage Solutions has several excellent benefits. If you need to figure out whether vehicle storage is your best choice, read on to find out more so you can make an educated decision.

A Storage Unit Offers Excellent Protection for Vehicles of All Types

No matter the vehicle you own, protecting it well is a must. That includes protection from the weather, including the hot, blazing sun, snow, rain, sleet, and hail. If you’ve ever seen the type of damage hail can do, you’ll know exactly what we mean. (Hint: it’s not pretty.)

Depending on what type you choose, vehicle storage sidesteps some of those dangers. For example, storing your vehicle inside a garage unit will protect it from almost everything. Covered storage is an excellent choice for larger vehicles, like RVs and boats. It protects your vehicle from hail, falling debris, and anything else that might fall out of the sky. (We’re looking at you, birds.)

Even an uncovered storage space in a storage facility offers excellent protection from theft and graffiti. The average storage facility is usually well-equipped to keep vandals and thieves away so your vehicle stays pristine.

Covered Storage is Economical While Still Offering Excellent Vehicle Protection

While indoor garage-type storage is the best overall to protect a vehicle, covered storage is still quite good. As we mentioned earlier, covered storage will protect your vehicle, whether it’s an RV, boat, classic car, motorcycle, etc., from the weather, falling debris, birds, etc.

Another benefit of covered storage is that it’s more economical than storing your vehicle inside a garage-type storage unit. In other words, your vehicle will be well protected, and so will your wallet. These factors make covered storage a great choice for folks who want to protect their vehicles on a budget.

Vintage Cars

Vintage cars are all the rage around the United States, and for good reason. As the saying goes, “They just don’t make them like they used to.” If you’re a vintage car enthusiast but need garage space for your ride, a garage storage unit is a great choice.

As we discussed earlier, a garage storage unit is the best storage unit overall for ultimate vehicle protection. When you consider that the less damage a vintage car has, the more value it will have, protecting it well is the best choice you can make. Inside a garage storage unit, your vintage vehicle will be protected from practically everything, including the weather, theft, falling debris, and so forth.

In Many Scenarios, Motorcycle Storage Simply Makes Sense

If you own a home with a garage, storing a motorcycle is relatively easy because motorcycles are much smaller than cars, boats, and other large vehicles. However, if you rent an apartment or your garage is already full, a storage unit can be a great solution.

With a storage unit, your motorcycle will get all the benefits that any other vehicle would get, including protection from the weather, theft, vandalism, and birds. Also, you won’t have to worry about anyone in your home accidentally damaging your motorcycle or taking it out for an unauthorized spin around the block. Depending on where you live, storing your motorcycle in a storage unit can also be much better than, for example, storing it in your driveway and using a cover, which can rip, be blown off, or stolen.

Indoor and Covered Storage Units protect your Vehicle from Paint Damage and Hail Damage

Over the last few years, there have been numerous stories of hailstorms causing millions of dollars worth of vehicle damage around the United States. Even without hail, the sun, rain, sleet, tree sap, and bird droppings can damage your vehicle’s paint job.

If you store your vehicle inside a garage storage unit or covered storage unit, all of these problems immediately disappear. As we’ve spoken about, indoor and covered storage units offer excellent protection and will keep your paint job in pristine condition long-term. Both types of storage also provide superior protection against hail and the expensive damage it can cause.

Boat and RV Storage Offers Many Different Benefits

Storage of vehicles, boats, and RVs can be exceptionally challenging. That’s because most RVs and boats are quite large and, even if you have a driveway, might not fit. Also, your HOA might prohibit you from storing a boat or RV in your driveway. You could also have a summer home that will be empty in winter, leaving your RV or boat susceptible to vandals and thieves. Boat and RV storage in a safe, secure facility alleviates all of these problems immediately. Your vehicle will also be ready to go at a moment’s notice.
