Types of car storage

If you're a car owner in Bakersfield, California, and are in need of some extra space, consider renting outdoor car storage. This option not only provides you with the convenience of easy access to your vehicle but is often an affordable alternative to traditional storage options.

Options for car storage can be categorized into three distinct types:

  • Covered Car Storage: Offering an added layer of protection against the elements, covered car storage options may include carports or awnings. These spaces can shield your car from the intense summer heat prevalent in Bakersfield, while still offering easy access.
  • Indoor Car Storage: If you're looking for the highest level of protection for your vehicle, indoor car storage may be the right choice. This option might include garages or dedicated storage units. Although they are more expensive, they provide an excellent shelter against dust storms that occasionally sweep Bakersfield.
  • Outdoor Car Storage: Outdoor storage offers a simple and fuss-free solution to park your vehicle. This might be within a secure residential property, a parking lot, or an open field. While these spaces may lack the protective cover associated with indoor or covered options, they are budget-friendly and readily available. In Bakersfield, where precipitation is low, this can be a viable choice. Don't forget to invest in a good-quality car cover to protect your vehicle from the sun.

Choosing the right outdoor storage unit

Choosing the right outdoor car storage or parking space in Bakersfield, California, requires thoughtful consideration of a few key factors. Your vehicle's size, the location's accessibility, and its proximity are all essential aspects to think about when choosing the ideal spot.

  • Location and Safety: Bakersfield, with its friendly communities and secure neighborhoods, offers a wide range of locations for outdoor car storage. Factor in convenience and safety when choosing your spot. Look for locations that are near to your home or places you often visit. Remember to consider the safety of the neighborhood, as well.
  • Vehicle Size and Space Dimensions: You want to ensure the parking space you choose can comfortably accommodate your vehicle. Whether you have a compact car, an SUV, or a pickup truck, the outdoor storage space must have enough room for it. Not only should the car fit, but there should also be ample space for you to access and maneuver your vehicle without risk of damage.
  • Access and Availability: It's crucial that the outdoor storage location you choose in Bakersfield is accessible when you need it most. Consider the hours of access offered, and decide if they line up with your schedule. If you frequently need early morning or late-night access to your vehicle, ensure the parking space you select can cater to this.

When searching for outdoor car storage in Bakersfield, California, consider the city's climate throughout the year. Bakersfield experiences hot, dry summers with average high temperatures around 97 degrees Fahrenheit in peak summer. This intense heat can affect your vehicle's paint and interior.

The winter months are relatively mild, with average low temperatures hovering around 39 degrees Fahrenheit in peak winter. A protective cover is still beneficial during this time to protect against frost and potential overnight dew. Opt for a water-resistant cover to safeguard your vehicle from these elements. Outdoor car storage can be an excellent solution when selected thoughtfully.
