We can get you started today if you call our office or looking through our available storage units online. Reserve storage online, and move in at your convenience. Follow the tips below to prepare your car for winter storage.
You paid a lot for your vehicle. Protect the paint job and appearance by preparing it properly. Wash your car well to scrape off any dirt and bird droppings; then wax to prevent scratches. If your vehicle is stored outside, it may still have to hold up against some weather, even with a covering over it. So take your preventative measures seriously for the best result.
Additionally, you should clean the inside of your car. Pests look for food during the winter, and you do not want them to be attracted to your vehicle because of wrappers or crumbs. Take out the trash, vacuum well, and wipe down the interior.
Vehicles are not meant to sit idle, so there are some steps to assure it will run smoothly after storage. Fill up the gas tank so moisture cannot form and mess up your acceleration. For long periods of storage, you should also add stabilizer to the gas tank and change your oil.
Need a place to store you car, boat, or RV? West Creek Self Storage is just the place for you. Our large drive-up storage units can hold your smaller vehicle while providing overhead protection. Meanwhile, we lease outdoor parking spaces for your large vehicles, like boats, trailers, and all kinds of RVs. Get started with us now by reserving online!
