Vehicle storage in the summer is a smart move; vehicle storage in the winter is an even smarter move, especially if that vehicle is not going to be used for several months.

Call us at 817-439-1380 and ask us your questions about car storage, RV storage, boat storage, trailer storage, or just storage for your extra furniture. We have the storage solution you are looking for.

Why vehicle storage in the winter

There are two reasons why vehicle storage in the winter is a good idea: Mother Nature and vandals.  Let’s talk about each of them.

Mother Nature throws everything at you in the winter. Snow, sleet, cold temps, torrential rain, hail, it’s all on display from November through the end of March, and it all means dents and broken windshields and rust and other assorted types of damage.  If you do not plan on driving your vehicle for several months, the last thing you want to do is leave your vehicle in your driveway, a sitting duck for the next onslaught by Mother Nature.  It will not end up well for your vehicle.

As for vandals and thieves, they are always on the job, looking for vehicles which have sat untouched for a long period of time, looking at homes which show no activity.  Car theft is on the increase in most major cities due to the poor economy. Car vandalism is on the increase due to the poor character of some of our citizens.  Never underestimate the cleverness and determination of vandals and thieves.

The cost of vehicle storage

Listen, we are fully aware that traditional vehicle storage can be expensive.  You can easily pay $300-$500 per month for traditional vehicle storage, but we are suggesting a much-less-expensive alternative, vehicle storage at your local self storage facilities.  At places like our own Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, you can rent a 10×10 storage unit, which is more than enough room for a car, pickup truck, or small boat, for $110 per month, or only $130 for climate controlled storage.  That affordable price, when compared to storing your vehicle in your driveway, makes the decision much easier.

The alternative offers too many risks

Think about it and do the math. Four months of winter storage, for your vehicle, will run you $440 at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage. Compare that to the price of a stolen vehicle, or a vandalized vehicle, and the inconvenience of repairing your damaged vehicle, or replacing as stolen one, and it becomes readily obvious why so many people are opting for storage facilities like Blue Mound 287 for vehicle storage in the winter.
