Types of Car Storage

Outdoor car storage offers a secure space for your car that is often more affordable than other storage options. Renters may also want to consider indoor, covered, or other storage types for their vehicles when looking for the ideal storage solution.

  • Indoor storage typically offers more protection from the elements, such as private garages, while outdoor options, like parking lots, can provide greater affordability.
  • Covered options, such as carports, often provide a balance of protection and affordability.

Choosing a Storage Unit

Finding the right outdoor car storage unit for your vehicle can be difficult. Here are the key considerations to take into account when choosing the best car storage space for you:

  • Accessibility – Look for a space that is easy to access at all times, with ample parking and a wide driveway or entrance.
  • Location – Make sure the space is in a secure and safe neighborhood.
  • Size – Choose a space that is large enough to fit your vehicle comfortably, with enough room to move around when needed.
  • Ventilation – Look for a space that is well ventilated, with a roof or cover to protect your vehicle from the elements.
  • Maintenance – Consider the condition of the space, ensuring that it is clean and regularly maintained.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the climate and weather must be taken into consideration. Outdoor storage provides a more cost-efficient option compared to indoor storage and is ideal for larger vehicles like trucks, SUVs, and vans. Different types of cars should be protected when parked outdoors, especially during the warmer months of the year. A UV shield or car cover can be added to protect the paint and interior of the vehicle. During peak summer, the average high temperature in Cambridge is around 82 °F and during peak winter, the average low temperature is around 18 °F. To protect your vehicle from extreme temperature fluctuations, consider adding antifreeze and rust inhibitors. To stay safe, owners should also check the vehicle regularly for any damage or signs of wear and tear.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Cambridge

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Cambridge costs $226 per month.

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

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.
