Choosing Long Term Parking

When selecting a long term rental parking space for residential storage, there are many factors to consider. This includes:

  • The proximity to local neighborhoods and resources such as shops and restaurants.
  • The safety of the area - consult local law enforcement or crime watch organizations for crime rates.
  • The availability of public transportation options such as buses, trains, or bike paths.
  • The cost - compare rates with other area parking spaces and look for discounts or loyalty programs.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a long term parking space in Charleston, South Carolina, it is important to consider the climate and weather of the area. The average high temperature in the peak of summer is 89°F and the average low temperature in the peak of winter is 45°F. Considering the extreme temperatures, it is important to ensure the parking area is well shaded and has adequate ventilation to reduce heat buildup. Additionally, it is important to check for any water runoff to keep the parking area dry.

When selecting a parking space, it is important to look for adequate security measures. This may include surveillance cameras, motion sensors, or security personnel onsite. Additionally, if parking an expensive car, it is recommended to invest in an additional cover to keep it protected from the elements. All vehicles should have an anti-theft system installed to deter potential thieves.

Finally, it is important to check what type of maintenance is offered in the area, such as car washes or detailing services. This can help to reduce the amount of buildup and damage to the vehicle during long term parking.

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.
