Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing an outdoor car storage unit, there are several important factors to consider.

  • Location: Make sure to research the area and neighborhood where the car storage unit is located to determine if it is safe and convenient.
  • Type of Car Storage Unit: Consider the type of car storage unit and what features it offers, such as a covered or uncovered space and whether the space is large enough for your car.
  • Type of Parking Surface: When considering an outdoor car storage unit, look for a flat and even surface that will be easy to drive and park on.
  • Security Features: Look for security features such as lighting, cameras, and locks to protect your car from theft or damage.
  • Accessibility: Make sure the outdoor car storage unit is easily accessible and that you have access to it when you need it.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Boston, it is important to consider the range of temperatures and weather conditions. In the summer, the average high temperature is in the mid-80s Fahrenheit, while in winter, the average low temperature can drop as low as the low-20s. Outdoor car storage offers the benefit of increased ventilation and reduced accumulation of dust and dirt that can come with indoor storage.

For vehicles like classic cars and motorcycles, outdoor storage is often preferred due to the increased ventilation. However, special precautions should be taken when storing these types of vehicles outdoors. Make sure the vehicle is waxed, and the interior and exterior is covered with a durable, weatherproof tarp. Additionally, use a fuel stabilizer to prevent fuel from gumming up over time. It is also important to use a car cover to protect the exterior from weather damage, such as rain and snow.

These steps can help protect your vehicle from extreme temperatures, weather, and other environmental elements so you can enjoy your vehicle for as long as possible.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor car storage spaces in Boston 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.
