"Alex had a great spot for us to store our car for a couple of months. The price was good. It was a convenient location from JFK airport. And a very secure spot. Alex was easy to communicate with and replied to texts promptly. I can recommend his driveway for your vehicle storage needs! "

"Ms. Debbie is so accommodating, super responsive,understanding, and kind. The space was exactly as described, in a quiet area. I felt more than comfortable parking my vehicle there. If I hadn’t sold my car I would’ve undoubtedly had it stored there long-term. Ms. Debbie is a 5-star host— she even offered assistance in referring me to someone to sell my vehicle— she went above and beyond to help—she’s the real deal! Do yourself a favor and book with this incredible host! Thank you Ms. Debbie!! —Jas A."

"Rosemery was a great host and she took great care of my vehicle. She has a very good location, in Staten Island and it was a safe place to store my vehicle. In addition, she was very helpful when it came to me picking up my vehicle. It was easy to get to and ready to go. I'd recommend Rosemery for vehicle storage and I'd use her services again the next time I come through NYC."

Types of Car Storage

Outdoor car storage offers the convenience of easy parking and ample space. It is also an affordable option for car owners. Renters may also want to consider other types of car storage, such as:

  • Indoor: Private garages can provide protection from the elements and a higher level of security.
  • Outdoor: Parking lots may have more available space and some may provide more secure access.
  • Covered: Carports are an affordable solution for cars that need to be kept out of direct sun and rain.

Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing an outdoor car storage unit in Queens, New York can be a daunting task. Here are a few key considerations when selecting an outdoor car storage space:

  • Accessibility: Make sure the car storage unit is easily accessible. Consider the location, the hours of operation and the access requirements, such as having a key or code to enter the property.
  • Size: The car storage unit should be big enough to fit your vehicle, and also provide easy access for getting in and out.
  • Security: Residential car storage units are typically not as secure as dedicated car storage facilities, but you should still look for basic security features such as locks and fences.
  • Cleanliness: It's important to make sure the car storage unit is clean and free of dirt, dust, and debris. The unit should also be well-maintained and have no damage.
  • Environment: Make sure the car storage unit is in a safe environment that is free of pests, rodents, and other animals. In addition, look for signs of moisture that could cause damage to your vehicle.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Queens, New York, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. Depending on the time of year, temperatures can range from the high 80s in peak summer to the low 20s in peak winter. Outdoor car storage can be a great option for those looking to store classic cars and other vehicles that require additional protection. For these vehicles, outdoor storage may be more beneficial than indoor storage as direct sunlight can help protect the vehicle's paint and keep the interior temperature more consistent. For newer vehicles, there are additional precautions one might take to protect the car while it is parked outdoors. Investing in a car cover can be a great way to protect the car from the elements and keep the paint in good condition. Additionally, regularly checking the vehicle for any signs of rust or damage is important regardless of the vehicle type.

FAQs About car storage in Queens, New York

The price of car storage in Queens is affected by various factors, including location, storage type, facility amenities, and availability. For instance, a storage unit closer to a major highway or urban center may cost more than one in a less convenient area.
