Types of Car Storage

Storing a car outdoors can be an inexpensive and convenient option for car owners in Fostoria, MI. Additionally, renters may also want to consider indoor and covered car storage as alternative options.

  • Indoor storage typically consists of private garages that offer more protection from the elements than an outdoor space.
  • Outdoor storage is often a parking lot or driveway, which offers the least protection from the elements but is typically the most affordable storage option.
  • Covered storage includes spaces such as carports, which provide some shade and protection from the elements, but may cost more than an outdoor space.

Choosing a Storage Unit

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

  • The size of the car storage space - Make sure the space is large enough to accommodate the car.
  • The location of the car storage unit - It should be easy to access and convenient for the user.
  • The security of the car storage unit - Look for features like gates, secure locks, and cameras.
  • The surface of the car storage unit - The best car storage units should have a solid, level surface that is free of debris.
  • The availability of the car storage unit - Make sure the car storage unit is available when you need it.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Fostoria, Michigan, there are several factors to consider. For example, the climate and weather vary greatly between the peak summer and peak winter months. Average high temperatures in peak summer range from 84-87°F (29-30°C), while average low temperatures in peak winter dip to as low as 14°F (-10°C). The type of vehicle being stored needs to be taken into account when deciding whether to store outdoors or indoors. Outdoor storage provides an economical option for long-term storage, with the added benefit of protection from theft, fire, and other disasters. However, for vehicles that are prone to rusting, such as classic cars, it is important to take additional measures to protect the vehicle from the elements. Waxing exposed metal surfaces and using a car cover can help to guard against rust. Additionally, it is suggested to use a car cover even on vehicles with rust-resistant paint to prevent fading.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Fostoria

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Fostoria costs $94 per month.

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

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.
