Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing the right car storage space for your vehicle can be a tricky business, and finding a storage unit in East Lyme, Connecticut is no exception. When making your selection, it's important to consider the following factors:

  • Accessibility: Make sure to select a location that is easily accessible to you. Consider the time of day that you will need to access your vehicle and the distance of the storage unit from your home or workplace.
  • Security: Look for a car storage unit that offers secure parking, such as a well-lit area, a gated entrance, or video surveillance.
  • Size: Measure the size of your vehicle and select a storage unit that is the appropriate size. Ensure that the size of the unit is large enough to open the doors of your car without hitting the walls of the storage unit.
  • Cleanliness: Look for a storage facility that is regularly cleaned and inspected. Make sure that the unit is free of dirt, dust, and pests.
  • Climate Control: Select a storage unit that is well ventilated and protected from the elements to ensure that your vehicle is well protected.

Climate Considerations

When looking for car storage in East Lyme, Connecticut, you should consider the climate and weather of the area. Summers here tend to be warm and humid, with average high temperatures reaching into the low 80s. Winters here can be cold, with average low temperatures dipping below freezing. Depending on the type of vehicle you’re looking to store, you should consider climate-controlled storage to ensure its optimal condition. Climate-controlled storage prevents exposure to extreme temperatures and protects against moisture buildup and potential rusting.

For those looking to store vehicles in non-climate-controlled storage, there are several precautions that can be taken to protect its condition. Ensuring the car is clean and dry before storage, regularly checking the vehicle for signs of rust or water damage, and keeping the car covered with a tarp or blanket can all help preserve its condition.

Ultimately, the choice between climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage depends on the type of vehicle and the owner’s needs. But no matter which option you choose, taking these simple precautions can help protect your vehicle while in storage.
