15 x 9 Garage in San Pablo, California

Verified Review

"Ben is the best! His space is secure & it's always super easy to make arrangements for access -- he responds immediately to communications and is always accessible. Also, he's a certified ASE technician, so he can provide valuable advice & assistance with any car question you might have. He even provided a trickle charge to keep my battery sound. And last -- but by no means least -- he's a super nice guy and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Ben!"

"Janki’s space was perfect for my vehicle and she was awesome to meet. I left my car with boxes stored inside for 90 days and everything was safe and sound. Definitely would recommend Janki’s space and will likely use it again next summer (if it’s available!)"

Types of Storage

Renting a residential garage in Oakland can be a great way to store vehicles, tools, and other equipment. Other types of storage solutions can include outdoor parking in driveways, parking lots, or unpaved lots, allowing for long-term parking or storage options in a convenient location. Interior storage options, such as climate-controlled units, provide a secure environment and can protect items from extreme temperatures. Renting these spaces through marketplaces like Neighbor.com can provide access to affordable, reliable storage options.

Choosing a Storage Unit

As Oakland, California continues to develop as a major metropolitan area, finding the right garage for storage or parking can be a tricky task. Here are some key points to consider when selecting a garage to rent:

  • Location: Look for a garage that is conveniently located, near busy roads and public transportation.
  • Capacity: Make sure the garage is large enough to house your items, whether it be a vehicle, furniture, or other items.
  • Security: Ensure that the garage has adequate security measures in place, such as a sturdy lock, quality locks and hinges, and a good lighting system.
  • Accessibility: Make sure you have easy access to the space, such as a remote-controlled door or an automated system.

Climate Considerations

Oakland, California has a temperate climate with mild winters and warm, dry summers. The average high temperature in summer (June to August) is in the low 70s to mid-80s and winter (December to February) temperatures range in the high 40s to low 60s. The high summer temperatures can be detrimental to vehicles and other items, so renting a private garage or commercial facility for storage is recommended. Even though a private garage is not climate-controlled, it can help protect vehicles and items from extreme temperatures, intense sunlight and other weather-related issues. There are a few things to consider when renting a private garage such as how secure it is, if there is proper ventilation, and if the door and walls are insulated. These can provide additional protection for your items during the changing seasons. It's also important to take any necessary precautions when storing items such as using covers or protective materials to ensure their longevity.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor garages spaces in Oakland 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.
