What people say about renting outdoor car storage on Neighbor

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."

Choosing a Storage Unit

  • Location: Look for a convenient storage space in a residential area with easy access to your home or workplace.
  • Size: Make sure the unit is large enough to accommodate your vehicle and any other items that you plan to store with it.
  • Security: Look for car storage with basic security features such as keypads, locks, and cameras that can monitor the area around your car.

  • Maintenance: Check to see if the storage unit is regularly maintained and repaired to ensure that your car is properly cared for.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Rio Rico, Arizona, one should consider the climate and weather at different times of year. Average high temperatures in the peak summer are 95 to 103 degrees Fahrenheit, while average low temperatures in the peak winter are 35 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Outdoor car storage offers a variety of benefits compared to indoor storage, such as improved ventilation and protection against water, mold or mildew.

It is important to take into consideration the type of vehicle being stored when choosing between indoor and outdoor car storage. Outdoor storage is best for cars made of metals, plastic, and rubber that are resistant to weather and temperature changes, such as sports cars, SUVs, and trucks. Special precautions should be taken to protect more sensitive vehicles, such as classic cars, from the elements. Wax coatings can be applied to protect the paint and upholstery from UV damage, and vehicles should be regularly washed and waxed to remove dirt and other environmental contaminants.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Rio Rico

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

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked outdoor 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.
