Auto, Motorcycle, and Truck Storage
Do you have a motorcycle that has been sitting in your garage for months? Years, even? If so, you may want to consider getting it out of the driveway and into a storage unit, like one of the many available at Simply Self Storage. With our variety of storage units in a variety of sizes, your vehicle will be as safe as long as you need it stored.
Why Use A Storage Unit?
More likely than not, your vehicle is probably one of the most valuable and functional things you own.
If you need to store it for a few weeks or few months during a move or other transition, the driveway or the curb won’t cut it. If you have a classic car or one that you’re currently working on, a storage unit is a good idea to keep it protected from harsh weather, humidity, vandalism, damage from rodents and pests, and a variety of other harmful factors.
Storing Your Vehicles
When planning to store your vehicle, long or short term, making sure it is properly stored is critical.
Before you store your vehicle(s), here are a few things to do:
- Change your oil and filter. Professionals recommend doing this right before you store your vehicle to protect your engine from any contaminants.
- Add coolant to your engine (topping it off) for additional protection while it’s in storage.
- Wash your vehicle before placing it in storage. This is important to remove any grease and grime from both the undercarriage and body of the car. Also, add a double or triple coat of wax on your vehicle to for additional protection while it’s in storage.
- Buy a good cover (which is well-fitted) to go over your vehicle.
For any further tips for storing your vehicle, be sure to check your owner’s manual or chat with your car mechanic.
