Choosing a Storage Unit

When considering an outdoor car storage unit, there are a few things to consider to ensure your vehicle is safe and secure. Here are some factors you should take into account:

  • The size of the storage unit – make sure the unit is large enough to accommodate your vehicle and any other items you may need to store.
  • The location – make sure the unit is in a safe area, free from potential vandalism or theft, with easy access for pickup and drop-off.

Climate Considerations

When renting outdoor car storage in Granite City, Illinois, the climate and weather should be taken into account. In the peak summer, the average high temperature is around 90°F. In winter, the average low temperature is around 10°F. Outdoor car storage can be beneficial for a variety of vehicles. For example, it can provide extra security for an SUV or pickup truck, which may be more difficult to store indoors. It is also a good option for muscle cars and sports cars, which can benefit from increased ventilation. When parking a vehicle outdoors, certain precautions should be taken, such as using a car cover to protect the paint and regularly checking fluid levels and tire pressure. Additionally, it is also important to ensure that the storage area is secure and has the appropriate drainage.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Granite City

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Granite City costs $80 per month.

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked outdoor car storage type in Granite City.

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.
