20 x 10 Driveway in Menands, New York

Verified Review

"Easy process, parking space as advertised (though when I arrived as scheduled a car was already in the space; a person from the house was able to move that car immediately, with no delay interfering with my Uber pick-up). Very reasonable pricing. Would rent again from Hannah, if still available next year."

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Rotterdam, New York, there are certain factors to consider. Outdoor car storage can provide several benefits compared to indoor storage, such as more space for larger cars, trucks and trailers. Depending on the type of vehicle being stored, there are certain precautions to take when storing outdoors.

In the summer months, temperatures in Rotterdam can reach up to an average of 86°F (30°C) with humidity levels reaching over 70%. It is important to protect the vehicle from direct sunlight and use a cover or car shade to prevent paint damage. In the winter months, temperatures can drop to an average low of 11°F (-11°C). Cold temperatures can cause cracking of rubber parts and lead to rust and corrosion of metal. Using a vehicle cover and/or antifreeze is recommended to protect the car from the winter weather.
