Types of Car Storage

Outdoor car storage in Cincinnati, Ohio can offer an affordable solution to parking your vehicle securely, without the need of a traditional garage. Renters may also want to consider the benefits of indoor, outdoor and covered car storage, so that they can choose the setup that best meets their needs.

  • Indoor car storage offers a secure and private space, such as a private garage, to protect your vehicle from the elements.
  • Outdoor car storage is usually less expensive than indoor storage and provides more flexibility with the type of property you can store your car on, such as a parking lot.
  • Covered car storage is the best of both worlds, providing the protection of an indoor space with the convenience of an outdoor space, such as a carport.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing an outdoor car storage unit, there are several factors to consider. Here are a few of the most important considerations:

  • Location: Where is the storage space located? Is it easily accessible, and is it close to home or work?
  • Security: What kind of security features does the space have? Are there locks, security cameras, or other measures for safety?
  • Size: Is the unit large enough to store the car or other vehicle?
  • Visibility: Is the storage space visible from the street or other areas?
  • Access: Is access to the space limited to certain times or days of the week?

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent outdoor car storage in Cincinnati, Ohio, there are a few things to consider. The city experiences four distinct seasons, with average highs ranging from 32°F in winter to 86°F in summer. Precipitation is typically moderate throughout the year, but snowfall can be significant during the colder months. As such, vehicles stored outdoors should be properly covered and protected from the elements.

Outdoor storage offers a number of benefits compared to indoor storage. For instance, it is typically more affordable and provides more space for larger vehicles like SUVs, trucks, and RVs. Outdoor storage can also be more secure, since it is more visible from the street and can be monitored more easily.

To best protect a vehicle stored outdoors, it should be covered with a weather-resistant tarp or car cover. Additionally, a wheel lock should be used to restrict movement and discourage theft. The battery should also be disconnected and stored separately. Finally, all fluids should be topped off and the vehicle should be regularly started to ensure it remains in good working order.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor car storage spaces in Cincinnati is a great place to start.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

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.

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.
