Preparing Your Car for Storage
Parking your car in storage without any preparation is a bad idea no matter what type of storage you're renting. Doing so will almost certainly cause issues with the vehicle that will be expensive to repair down the line. Following these steps will help ensure your car comes out of storage in the same condition it was when you left it.
1. Disconnect the battery. Cars drain their battery even when the engine is off, and you don't want to have to replace the battery once you retrieve your car from storage. If possible, try to drive the car for 15 minutes every two weeks, which will help maintain the battery and keep your car's components lubricated. If you're unable to do so, disconnect the battery. You won't need to entirely remove the battery from the vehicle, just disconnect the negative battery cable. If you do want to keep the car battery charged in your absence for a long period of time and you've rented a storage unit with electrical access, use a trickle charger. This will connect your car battery to an electrical outlet and send a trickle of energy through to the battery--just enough to keep it charged.
2. Take care of your tires. If your car sits on its tires in the same position over a long period of time, your tires will develop flat spots and require replacement. This is particularly an issue if the storage location experiences cold temperatures. Once again, if you're able to drive the vehicle for about 15 minutes every few weeks, this is less of a worry. The most basic precaution you can take to prevent flat spots from developing is getting your tires rotated and over-inflated. However, over the long term this won't do for protection. In long-term cases, it's a good idea to raise your car up on jack stands, removing the wheels if possible.
