Climate Considerations

When considering outdoor car storage in Birch Run, Michigan, there are several factors to consider throughout the year. Each season brings different conditions that may impact the longevity of a vehicle. In summer, the average high temperature is around 83°F while in winter the average low temperature is around 18°F. Humidity levels can be high during warm months, while snow and ice can also be expected.

Outdoor storage offers several advantages when it comes to protecting different types of vehicles. The open air allows for better ventilation and helps to protect against moisture damage. Additionally, the natural sunlight helps to keep tires inflated and prevent flat spots.

When it comes to specific precautions for protecting a vehicle stored outdoors, the most important factor is to choose a space that is well-protected from the elements. Make sure that the space is on a level ground and away from any large trees or buildings that may create additional wind or shade. Covering the vehicle with a tarp or car cover is also recommended.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Birch Run

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Birch Run costs $90 per month.

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

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.
