Storing an extra vehicle

See also

Keeping an extra vehicle at your home can often be a lot more hassle than people think it will be when they purchase an extra car. Many people have an extra vehicle that they use as a winter car or as a spare car for returning college students in the summer. When this car isn’t being used, however, it can be a huge hassle. Parking it in a driveway usually means having to move it on a daily basis to get other cars in and out of a garage, while parking in a garage means keeping your other vehicles exposed to the elements. Parking in the street can be illegal and result in having your car towed.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem that doesn’t involve selling the car. Putting your extra vehicle in temporary storage is a great way to make sure your car is safe, protected, and accessible. A good temporary storage facility has a computerized safety gate so that only people who actually have their cars stored at the facility are able to get to the storage area. By using this gate, it’s possible to access your car whenever you want. Because it’s computerized, it’s possible to get to your vehicle on weekends, holidays, and even the middle of the night.

There is no limit on how long you can leave a vehicle in storage. Short term storage is also available, making temporary vehicle storage a great place to stash your car or truck when you’re going on vacation. If you’re going on a trip or getting deployed, it doesn’t make sense to spend your entire time away worrying about the safety of your vehicle. By putting your car or truck in temporary vehicle storage, you won’t have to worry about vandalism or theft. If you choose a covered parking option, you won’t even have to worry about your car or truck being caught in a hail storm or other damaging natural event.

If you have an extra vehicle, odds are its becoming a big hassle to keep it at your home when it’s not being used. Pick temporary vehicle storage as a way to keep it safe and protected.
