How much space do I need to store a vehicle?
Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces.
Do I need climate-controlled storage?
We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).
If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.
Should I winterize my vehicle before storing?
If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definetely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.

Storage Unit Amenities
There are many amenities to consider when choosing a self storage unit in Dallas. You will want to consider whether your storage needs require a climate controlled storage unit. This is particularly important if you plan to store items in humid areas or for an extended period of time. However, be sure to note that climate controlled and humidity controlled are different, with the latter focusing specifically on eliminating humidity from the unit. With Neighbor, you will find many storage options without climate control, such as attics, sheds, garages, or other storage areas. If you are in need of climate controlled storage, you will want to look for spaces like bedrooms, basements, or office spaces on Neighbor. While searching for the right storage space, keep in mind whether or not you require ground level storage. If you are storing large furniture, need frequent access, or are looking to store items with wheels, you may want to consider looking for ground level storage with drive-up access.
Choosing Storage Unit Sizes
When searching for traditional storage units, you will typically see sizes like 5x5, 10x10, or 20x20. Storage spaces on Neighbor come in many different shapes and sizes. It can be difficult to really know how much space you need for your items, so it's a good idea to rent a space slightly larger than you think you might need. If you plan to store large furniture or a mattress with other small items, you will likely want to rent a unit that is at least 5x10 (50 square feet). Also keep in mind the height of the storage space, as taller spaces allow for stacking and other organization techniques.
It's important to consider your storage plans to determine how and what to pack into a storage unit. If you plan to store items for a year or more you'll want to ensure you prepare properly, whereas leaving a box of clothes in storage for 1-2 months doesn't require much preparation. Be mindful of the different kinds of materials you store and whether extreme heat, cold, or humidity could affect them. Humidity levels in Dallas tend to range between 60-70% year-round. Be cautious about storing leather or wood items in non-climate controlled areas. If concerned about humidity, avoid storing items in plastic bags as they hold in moisture. If storing appliances that may have moisture, leave the doors ajar. Vacuum-sealing fabrics, such as clothing, can help protect against damage when storing items long-term in Dallas.
