Storing a car outdoors can be an economical way to keep vehicles safe in Watertown, MA. Renters may also want to consider other types of car storage, such as indoor, outdoor and covered storage.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting an outdoor car storage unit, there are a few key considerations that should be taken into account. These include:

  • The size of the space - the vehicle should fit comfortably in the unit without any issues.
  • The surrounding environment - look for car storage units that are secure and away from nearby buildings and roads.
  • The security features of the space - consider factors such as locks, cameras, and other features to protect the vehicle.
  • The access to the area - check if the car storage unit has easy access for dropping off or picking up the vehicle.
  • The convenience of the location - consider the distance to the car storage unit and whether the area is easy to access.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Watertown, Massachusetts, there are several factors to consider. The climate and weather of the area can vary greatly throughout the year. On average, the city experiences a high temperature of around 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer months and a low temperature of around 15 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter months.

Outdoor storage is often less expensive than indoor storage, and can provide a better-protected environment for certain types of vehicles. For example, classic cars or race cars may require a specific temperature and humidity to maintain the condition and performance of the vehicle. Outdoor storage can provide protection from extreme temperatures, as well as dirt and debris that can enter an indoor storage facility.

When storing a vehicle outside, it is important to take precautions to protect it from the elements. Making sure the car is properly waxed and sealed can help protect the paint and prevent rust. Additionally, using a car cover can help protect the vehicle from rain, snow, and dirt.
