Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Imlay City, Michigan, it is important to consider the weather and climate at different times of year. Outdoor storage offers several benefits over indoor storage, particularly for larger or off-road vehicles such as boats or SUVs. It is important to ensure these types of vehicles will be adequately protected from the elements.

The average high temperature in Imlay City in the peak of summer is 83.3°F, while the average low temperature in the peak of winter is 17.2°F. Consider the impact of extreme temperatures, as well as the potential of snowfall and rain, when deciding to park a vehicle outdoors. Make sure the storage unit is equipped with a roof or cover to protect the vehicle from rain and snow. Additionally, a tarp or car cover can help protect the paint from UV rays and extreme temperatures. If stored outdoors for long periods of time, consider using a car cover to reduce the impact of harsh weather.

FAQs about outdoor car storage in Imlay City

On average a Neighbor outdoor car storage unit in Imlay City costs $100 per month.

20x20 spaces are the most frequently booked outdoor car storage type in Imlay City.

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.
