Top 7 Self Storage Tips

  1. Drain, and replace your old oil before your vehicle sits idle in storage.
  2. Remove the battery from your car and place it on a battery tender. If you do not have a tender, it is important to keep it somewhere warm, and unexposed to the elements.
  3. Write yourself a detailed checklist to remind yourself what was done to the car before placing it in storage.
  4. Provide a buffer between your car and the elements by covering it in a cover that provides air circulation.
  5. Cold temperatures can cause some unexpected issues like freezing your brakes and brake pads together. Prevent this by not using your parking brake.
  6. Place wheel chocks behind each back wheel to ensure your vehicle stays put during its stay.
  7. If you are planning to store your vehicle for more than 30 days? It is recommended that you fill up the gas tank and add a fuel stabilizer.
