If you are planning to store your car for long periods of time, it is important to properly prepare the vehicle for its time at the storage center. Preparation ensures the best experience. Use this guide to figure out how to get your car ready for its time in long-term storage:
Find the Right Facility
The storage facility you choose completely affects the safety and security of your vehicle while you store it. You should work with a storage center that has a strong reputation in the community to ensure that it will stay safe until you are ready to pick it up. Talk to the staff at the storage center to ensure they have the security features you need to feel confident about your car.
Wash the Vehicle
Keep the paint on your vehicle intact by getting it washed and detailed before you put it into the storage center. Water, bird droppings, and mud can permanently damage the exterior of your vehicle. If you wash it before you put it into storage, the car also looks much nicer when you return to retrieve it.
Change the Oil
Preemptively maintain your car for long-term storage by taking it in for an oil change. While the mechanics are changing out the oil, they can also check on the condition of the battery and the engine to ensure that the car will still be in great condition when you take it out of storage.
