Prepping for Winter Vehicle Storage

It is time to pack your vintage vehicle or large RV for the season. Smaller cars and recreational vehicles cannot bear the winter weather that Pennsylvania and Maryland bring. You can safely store your vehicle away in self storage, and Vault Storage Co offers the best. We have drive-up storage units, outdoor parking, or covered parking available depending on the location. Out of our four locations, find the closest facility to you to get started. Prepare your vehicle for storage with these tips below!

Tip #1: Do Not Leave a Messy Vehicle

There are many reasons to clean your vehicle before leaving it in storage. Wash the outside to get off dirt that has accumulated; then wax to give your paint a protective coating. To clean the interior, vacuum your carpets and seats, and wipe down hard surfaces. You want to get rid of trash and any remnants of food crumbs. Animals will be looking for food and shelter during cold months.

Tip #2 Stop at the Gas Station Beforehand

This tip is preserve your car’s smooth functioning. When you fill your gas tank, there is no room for additional moisture to form. When moisture builds up, it can cause your vehicle to accelerate poorly. In addition to adding fuel, you should also add stabilizer to your gas tank and change your oil if you plan to store your vehicle for more than three months.
