Many times an individual will rent a car storage unit to use for an extended amount of time. Reasons for the long duration of storage can vary. Some like to store their cars as per the different seasons. Many chose to store their RV with us during the working months and then remove the RV for the summer season. Some chose to store their antique cars with us as to keep them in pristine condition and at top value. Regardless of your reason for renting a car storage unit, there are some precautions you must take.
1. Change your oil: Used engine oil can be harmful to the vehicle if left stagnant for a long period of time
2. Fill up your gas tank: This will prevent moisture from building up within the tank.
3. Charge your battery: An unused battery will slowly begin to lose power. Charging the battery is essential before using the vehicle.
4. Clean your vehicle: This should be done BEFORE putting your car into storage. Small particles or items left on the car will turn into permanent stains if left untouched for too long. Play it safe and give your car, RV, or boat a deep cleaning before brining it to storage.
