40 x 10 Unpaved Lot in Tucson, Arizona

Verified Review

"We parked our RV and truck on Orlando's land for several months. He was friendly and accommodating when we arrived, and so easy to work with. He responded the day of to our request, which was helpful given travel plans. He was flexible with where to park on his land, and we felt very welcome. The neighborhood is very calm, and there is a gas station a few minutes down the road which can be helpful if you are storing an RV. Overall, we had a positive first experience with Neighbor and if/when we should need storage in the area, we would certainly work with Orlando again."

"This was the perfect spot for my semi-long term storage need. Broderick is a good man and an excellent host: Polite to a fault, family-oriented, storage area fully prepared and organized, always reasonably quick to respond to communications, and when our schedules didn't synch he made arrangements to have a family member grant me access, as he wasn't going to be available personally. Overall a very good experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Broderick."

"We needed to park our car while we went on an international trip and Ryscha's place worked out to be the perfect spot for us. We were stress free during our trip knowing our vehicle was safe and secure. Ryscha was super helpful in accommodating to our medium-term storage needs and coordinating with her for both drop off and pick up was a breeze. Easily the best host in town!"

Climate Considerations

Rio Rico, Arizona has four distinct seasons throughout the year, ranging from mild winters to hot and dry summers. When considering car storage in the area, it's important to consider the climate and weather of the area when deciding whether to choose climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage. Climate-controlled storage units offer protection from extreme temperatures, reducing the risk of damage from extreme heat or cold. Non-climate-controlled storage can be a more cost-effective option, but may be more vulnerable to colder temperatures.

When selecting a non-climate-controlled storage unit, it's important to take precautions to protect your vehicle. Investing in a good-quality car cover can help protect your vehicle from extreme temperatures, as well as wind and dust. Additionally, it's important to consider the average high and low temperatures in peak summer and peak winter. In Rio Rico, Arizona, the average high temperature in peak summer is 94°F (34°C) and the average low temperature in peak winter is 53°F (12°C). Taking these precautions can help ensure your vehicle stays in good condition while in storage.

FAQs about car storage in Rio Rico

On average a Neighbor car storage unit in Rio Rico costs $111 per month.

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked car storage type in Rio Rico.

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. Residential driveways offer a range of sizes and are typically affordable and convenient.

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.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.
