Tips for Prepping a Vehicle for Storage

When vehicles are not being used frequently, they often end up just taking up space on the owner’s property. You can give that vehicle a secure storage space with self storage to protect it against the elements and keep it from cluttering your home. Storage Depot of Savannah has drive-up and temperature-controlled storage units available to help with any storage need. Talk to one of our storage experts to find the best storage for your needs. Follow these tips to prepare your vehicle for winter storage!

Clean It Top to Bottom

No matter the vehicle, you should take the time to thoroughly clean it before packing it away. Do your best to scrub off outside dirt and grim. Then wax the top to protect the paint for the duration of storage. Vacuum and wipe down the interior of your vehicle to get rid of any crumbs and trash that could attract pests. Critters are looking for winter shelter food, so do not give them a reason to wander around your vehicle.

Fill Up with Gas

When there is extra space in your gas tank, moisture can build up and cause your vehicle not to run as smoothly. Stop by the gas station on your way to the storage facility to assure there is no space for moisture to form. For an extra layer of protection, or if you plan to store your vehicle for three months or more, you should also add stabilizer to your gas tank to prevent varnish and gum.
