"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Choosing a Storage Unit

When it comes to choosing a car storage unit in Yuma, Arizona, there are several important factors to consider:

  • Location - Look for a storage unit that is conveniently located for you, with easy access and proximity to amenities.
  • Size - Make sure you have enough space for your car, plus any items you may need to store inside.
  • Security - While most residential storage units don't have the same security features as a traditional storage facility, there should still be some security measures in place, such as fencing, motion-activated lighting, and locks.
  • Price - Look for a storage unit that offers competitive rates.
  • Maintenance - Check to see if the storage unit is regularly maintained, or if it is kept in good condition.

Climate Considerations

Renting outdoor car storage in Yuma, Arizona is a popular option. According to the U.S. climate data, the average high temperature in Yuma in summer is 108°F (42°C) and the average low temperature in winter is 47°F (8°C). Therefore, it's important to consider the weather and climate when making a decision about outdoor car storage.

For vehicles that are used regularly, such as family sedans, outdoor storage can offer several advantages over indoor storage. Outdoor storage is typically more affordable than indoor storage, and in Yuma’s dry climate, it can provide protection from dust and other elements. Additionally, the strong sunlight can help keep the vehicle’s interior warm during the colder winter months.

For vehicles that are used less frequently, such as classic cars, special precautions should be taken. To protect the exterior, car covers should be used and the vehicle should be parked in a shaded spot. Additionally, a quality wax should be applied regularly to the car’s exterior to protect it from UV damage. The car should also be started and allowed to idle a few times a month to keep the engine in good condition.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor car storage spaces in Yuma is a great place to start.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

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.

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.
