We stored our new truck with RJ in his very secure and fully fenced back yard for two months. He was very attentive and responsive to our needs. Highly recommend RJ, super friendly and goes the extra step to make sure your vehicle is safe and secure. Thanks RJ.

On average, the monthly cost of storing a car in a standard 10'x20' unit can range from $50 to $200 or more, depending on the location, amenities, and size. You can often find cheap car storage with outdoor or covered parking spaces.
Most standard cars will fit in a 10'x20' self storage unit, also known as a single car garage size unit. However, the actual size needed may vary depending on the specific make and model of the car, as well as whether additional items will be stored alongside it. It's best to measure the car and any additional items to determine the appropriate dimensions.
Yes, a standard car can fit in a 10'x20' storage unit. Smaller compact cars may fit in a 10x15, however, and some larger trucks and SUVs may need a 10x25 storage space. Ultimately, the actual size needed may vary depending on the specific make and model of the car, as well as whether other items will also be stored.
A 10'x15' storage space can accommodate small-sized vehicles, but it may not be large enough to store larger vehicles such as SUVs or pickup trucks. It's best to determine your vehicle length and that of any additional items you plan to store alongside it to determine the appropriate storage unit size.
The length of time a car can sit in storage depends on several factors, including the space conditions and the preparation of the car before storing. On average, a properly prepared car can be stored for 6-12 months without any major issues, but can be stored for several years if done properly. It's still important to start the engine and drive the vehicle regularly to prevent issues.
Storing a car has several benefits, such as protecting it from the elements and prolonging its lifespan, freeing up space at home, and providing a secure location that reduces the risk of theft or damage.

Depending on the size of the vehicle and your specific storage needs, there are many types of vehicle storage options to choose from. Different types of storage vary in terms of costs, amenities, and weather protection. In addition to storing automobiles, many of these units can also be used as RV storage, trailer storage or even boat storage.
Storing your car outside is a suitable option for many types of vehicles. Outdoor parking and car storage is the least expensive way to store your automobile, but it may leave it more exposed to storm or sun damage. There are different options for outdoor storage with varying levels of environmental protection, including open lots, parking spaces and driveways.
Striking the balance between indoor and outdoor storage, covered car storage provides an outdoor option with some protection from the elements. Covered car storage typically means your vehicle will be parked alongside other vehicles under a single roof, but could also come in the form of single carports or canopies.
Storing your vehicle in an enclosed space with drive-up access like garages, warehouses, or other type of storage unit provides maximum protection for your precious asset. The facility may even offer benefits like car lifts, climate control, and high security. However, if you want the perks of indoor storage, you'll have to pay a higher price. Carefully consider your specialized needs before choosing the indoor storage that's right for your car.
Besides price and location, there are other factors you should consider before renting space to store your car.
Vehicles come in all shapes and sizes. Luckily, so do the spaces used to store them. When you're trying to find the right storage space for your vehicle, you want to get the most for your money. In order to determine the right size unit for your vehicle, you'll need to consider the type of vehicle you're putting in storage and its dimensions (primarily the length).
When it comes to choosing storage for a motorbike or motorized toy vehicles, you can often get away with a relatively small storage unit. A 5’x10’ unit will comfortably store one motorcycle and the associated gear.
Some of the smaller compact cars, as well as microcars, can fit in 10’x15’ parking space. However, you may need to upgrade to a larger space to account for navigating around the vehicle or accessing the trunk.
Four-door sedans and larger compact cars often measure 15 feet or longer, requiring a larger storage space between 15 and 20 feet long. A 10-foot wide space, such as 10’x20’, is usually sufficiently wide.
The majority of minivans, crossovers, SUVs and trucks fit comfortably in a 20-foot-long parking space, such as a 10’x20’. Whether driving a Chrysler Pacifica, Honda CR-V, Chevrolet Suburban or Toyota Tacoma, you’re probably in a good spot. Be sure to take into consideration if you have a hitch or need extra space to maneuver.
For many full-size trucks and longer SUVs, such as a Ram 1500, opting for a longer 10’x25’ parking space might be necessary (or just a smart idea). Larger commercial vehicles might need even more length (and height) such as a 10’x30’.
Car storage prices vary depending on the type of unit, location, features/amenities and unit size. For example, rates are considerably more affordable for outdoor storage of a compact car than the monthly rate to store a large commercial truck indoors with security cameras.
There are a variety of reasons you may choose or need to store a vehicle. These are the most common reasons for needing to store an automobile include:
Whether the aim is to protect against exposure to extreme temperatures, UV rays or from harsh weather, many seek out car storage units to protect their auto from potential damage.
Home storage for vehicles can be challenging, especially in large cities. Those that own multiple cars might face limited availability if they live in an apartment or gated community. In other instances, HOA restrictions may create additional parking limitations. Even in rural areas, cars or larger vehicles can take up a lot of space. Whatever the reason, storing a car in a storage unit can be the best solution to free up extra space.
Many people own cars they don't use on a regular basis. Maybe you have a prized vehicle that you only drive when the weather is nice. For many, a large vehicle doesn't make a good daily driver, but it's occasionally needed for special trips. A rarely driven vehicle can be a burden when it's stored at home. Instead of working around it or putting it in a less-than-ideal location on your property, you may choose to store it at a neighbor’s home rather than your own.
Military members often leave possessions and vehicles behind while on duty. Individuals who travel for work or leisure can be faced with leaving a vehicle at the airport or other locations for several weeks at a time. Choosing a safe auto storage solution for these periods when you're away can help keep your car in the best shape possible.
For some people, a car is a vessel to get from spot A to spot B. For others, it's a cherished possession to be enjoyed on special occasions. Antique cars, project cars, and race cars are valuable possessions that require specialized care. If you've made an investment in a unique or classic vehicle, you likely need a storage option that will keep it in pristine condition.
