Storing a vehicle can be a bit of a puzzle, especially for suburban homeowners with limited space. Whether it’s a classic car, a beloved boat, or an adventure-ready RV, finding a safe, secure spot can make all the difference. Let’s dive into the top tips for storing your vehicle safely and securely, and explore why Roomia Self Storage might be the perfect fit for your needs.

Choosing the Right Storage Option for Your Vehicle

Every vehicle has its own unique storage needs.  Check in with your nearest Roomia Self Storage facility to see what your preferred location offers:

Motorcycles, especially classic ones, require proper storage to prevent damage from weather exposure and theft. Roomia provides private lock-up spaces with secure pin code access for your motorcycle storage needs, ensuring your bike stays in top condition.

 

Key Considerations for Secure Vehicle Storage

When choosing a storage facility, there are several factors to consider to ensure your vehicle remains safe and secure.

Advanced Security Features
At Roomia Self Storage, security is our top priority. Our facilities are equipped with 24/7 CCTV surveillance, electronic access control, perimeter fencing, and individual unit alarms. These measures ensure that your vehicle is constantly monitored and protected.

Easy Access
Convenience is key when it comes to accessing your stored vehicle. Roomia offers 24/7 access to your storage unit using your personal pin code. This means you can retrieve or park your vehicle at any time, making it easy to plan spontaneous road trips or weekend getaways.

Flexible Terms
Roomia understands that storage needs can change. That’s why we offer flexible terms with no lock-in contracts. Whether you need storage for a month, or longer, you can scale up or down as your needs change.

 

Preparing Your Vehicle for Storage

Proper preparation can make a significant difference in maintaining your vehicle’s condition during storage. Here are some essential tips:
Clean Your Vehicle
Before storing your vehicle, give it a thorough cleaning. Remove any dirt, grime, or salt to prevent rust and corrosion. Don’t forget to clean the interior as well to avoid any unpleasant odors.

Perform Maintenance Checks
Ensure your vehicle is in good condition before storage. Check the fluid levels, inflate the tyres to the recommended pressure, and disconnect the battery to prevent drainage. For long-term storage, consider using a fuel stabiliser to keep the fuel from deteriorating.

Cover Your Vehicle
Using a high-quality cover can protect your vehicle from dust, dirt, and scratches. Make sure the cover is breathable to prevent moisture buildup, which can lead to mold and mildew.

Use a Tyre Jack or Blocks
If you’re storing your vehicle for an extended period, use a tyre jack or blocks to take the weight off the tyres. This helps prevent flat spots and extends the life of your tyres.

Ensure Proper Ventilation
Slightly crack the windows to ensure proper ventilation inside the vehicle. This helps prevent musty odors and keeps the interior fresh.

 

Additional Tips for Safe and Secure Vehicle Storage

 

Check on Your Vehicle Regularly
Even though your vehicle is in a secure storage unit, it’s a good idea to check on it periodically. Start the engine, check the fluid levels, and take it for a short drive if possible. This helps keep the mechanical parts in good working order.
Insure Your Vehicle
Ensure your vehicle is adequately insured while in storage. Contact your insurance provider to discuss coverage options and make any necessary adjustments to your policy.

Document the Conditions
Before storing your vehicle, take photos and document its condition. This can be helpful for insurance purposes and gives you a reference point to ensure the vehicle remains in the same condition during storage.
