Climate Considerations

When considering renting outdoor car storage in Clarkston, Michigan, different times of year should be taken into account. Outdoor storage of vehicles may be preferable in certain contexts compared to indoor storage. For example, classic and vintage cars can benefit from natural ventilation when stored outdoors.

In terms of seasonal climate and weather, average high temperatures in peak summer can reach 86°F, with average lows in the winter time dropping as low as -9°F. Prolonged exposure to sun, rain, wind, snow, ice, and other elements should be taken into account when looking to store a vehicle outdoors.

Sensitive vehicles such as cars with leather interiors, classic cars, and luxury cars may require extra protection such as fitted covers, or extra space between the vehicle and other objects, when stored outdoors. Additionally, it is important to take preventive measures such as waxing the vehicle and regularly checking the engine and battery to avoid potential damage.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Clarkston

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Clarkston costs $164 per month.

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

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.
