Types of Car Storage

Outdoor car storage offers the benefit of accessibility as well as cost savings when compared to other storage options. Renters should also consider other types of car storage, such as indoor, outdoor, and covered.

  • Indoor car storage typically takes the form of private garages and is the most secure option, but also the most expensive
  • Outdoor car storage offers convenience and cost savings, such as parking lots and driveways
  • Covered car storage provides protection from the elements at a more cost effective rate, such as carports and sheds

Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting an outdoor car storage unit in Fairview Heights, Illinois, there are several factors that should be kept in mind. These include:

  • Accessibility: Choose a location that is easily accessible with plenty of room for maneuvering your car.
  • Security: Look for a facility with a good security system and a lockable gate to keep out unauthorized persons.
  • Size: Make sure your car fits into the space that is available and that you can comfortably open the doors.
  • Maintenance: Look for a unit that is well-maintained and that offers protection from the elements such as wind, rain, and sun.
  • Surroundings: Make sure the area around the unit is well-lit at night and is away from any potential traffic or noise disturbances.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Fairview Heights, Illinois, it is important to consider the climate and weather. In peak summer, the average high temperature is in the upper 80s, and in peak winter the average low temperature is in the mid-20s. In both cases, cars should be protected against exposure to the elements. When it comes to storing vehicles outdoors, there are a few key benefits compared to indoor storage. These include being able to access the car more quickly and easily, as well as being able to save on the cost of storage.

When storing different types of vehicles outdoors, it is important to take extra precautions. For example, classic cars and sports cars should be kept out of direct sunlight, and covered with a breathable car cover to shield against dust, debris, and rain. Similarly, luxury cars should be parked in shaded areas and covered with a car cover as well. It is also important to note that for all vehicles, it is best to keep the battery fully charged and check the air pressure of the tires regularly.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Fairview Heights

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Fairview Heights costs $82 per month.

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked outdoor car storage type in Fairview Heights.

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.
