Vehicle Storage

In our quest for freedom, sometimes we accumulate more cars, boats, trucks, RVs, toys and so on than we can reasonably keep at our house or apartment. That’s OK, you just need a partner like Store Space, for affordable storage options to keep your vehicles out of the way at home.

Vehicle Storage Solutions

Vehicles, in a word, mean freedom.

They turn days into hours, hours into minutes. They give you the option to shop or work across town. They let you explore your surroundings whenever you want. They are the gateway to adventure far from your door, or just down the street.

At many Store Space Self Storage facilities, guests can rent gated, outdoor vehicle parking spaces in a variety of lengths to store vehicles large and small. In some circumstances, drive-up storage units can also be used to store vehicles, giving you back valuable space at home or around the office.

As long as you’ve taken steps to winterize and prepare your vehicle for long-term storage, you can store it as long as necessary. Note: outdoor vehicle storage spots rent quickly during the off-season, so if you want to have some continuity with your storage facility, consider maintaining your rental all year-round. 

The cost of vehicle storage varies by size, availability, location and other factors. Fortunately, we at Store Space publish our rates and available storage options on all our store pages, so you know what to expect. 

We understand guests need to be able to access their storage units on their schedule. For that reason, guests can access the gate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily (unless otherwise stated).

What’s Driving your Need for Storage?

The need for vehicle storage can crop up at any time. For instance, certain vehicles might need to be kept out of the way during the off-season. Local rules and regulations may not allow you to keep a boat or RV on your property on the street. Lack of adequate parking or garage space might be an issue. Or sometimes, you just don’t have enough space for all your accumulated toys. 

Whatever your situation, many Store Space facilities have convenient vehicle storage options to help you out.

Rent Vehicle Storage

We make it easy to rent vehicle storage. Rent online, by phone or stop by our office to rent storage by talking with our friendly, knowledgeable management team.

Types of Vehicle Storage

There are three main types of vehicle storage: outdoor, covered and indoor. Store Space facilities typically have one or more of these options available for residential or commercial customers. 

Outdoor vehicle storage

Outdoor vehicle parking can range anywhere from car-sized parking spots between 15 to 20 feet long, and upwards of 35 feet or more for the largest trailers, boats, RVs and fifth wheels.

Covered vehicle storage

Think of covered vehicle storage as a roof with no walls. These parking spaces come in a range of sizes and are usually fenced and gated. These types of parking spaces are found less frequently.

Indoor vehicle storage

There are often two types of indoor storage options available: drive-up or warehouse-style. Drive-up storage units are the most common and offer the convenience of drive-up access.

The largest drive-up units can sometimes be used for vehicle storage. The height of the drive-up unit’s roll-up door can be prohibitive, leaving room for toys, motorcycles, pull-behinds and smaller types of vehicles. Ask your store manager or read the Rental Agreement for full details.

Warehouse-style indoor storage is available in select locations.

Types of Stored Vehicles

Boat Storage

With so many lakes, reservoirs, rivers and other waterways, it’s understandable that many Americans are into solo water sports, fishing, waterskiing, or just relaxing on the water.  

But what are you going to do when it comes time to put your watercraft away for winter? Keeping a boat in the water or at a harborside facility is convenient but can be prohibitively expensive. Depending on the size or local laws and regulations, storing it at home might not be an option.

For a complete guide to boat storage, including winterizing tips, read our Boat Storage page.

Small Craft

Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards can be stored in almost any storage unit, provided the unit is long enough. Jet skis require storage in a drive-up storage unit.

Large Craft

Outdoor parking will vary by facility. Parking spaces tend to range from 8 to 10 feet wide and 15 to 40 feet long.

For the most part, any trailered boat or watercraft can be stored outside. This includes everything from pontoon boats to ski boats, sport fishing boats and more.


Automobile Storage

Check out your storage options at your local Store Space Self Storage facility, where you have a wide range of storage options that you can rent on an as-needed basis.

For a complete guide to car storage, check out our Car Storage page.

Outdoor car storage is available at many storage facilities. These parking spaces are behind a fence and access is restricted via a PIN-controlled gate. Available spaces are a standard width (8 to 10 feet) and are 20 feet or more in length. If your car is trailered, make sure to account for the length of the trailer when selecting an outdoor spot. An all-weather car cover is highly recommended.

Covered car storage offers the same storage opportunities as outdoor storage, but with the added benefit of a roof overhead. These offer additional protection from hail, snow, rain and other elements.

Some larger drive-up storage units can be used for car storage. Check with your store manager and read your Rental Agreement for additional details. 

RV Storage and Trailer Storage

Recreational vehicles are great when you’re using them but can be a bit of a pain when you’re not. Between HOAs, local laws and size issues, it’s hard to find an appropriate place to store your RV when you’re not using it.

Fortunately, there’s Store Space, where you can store your RVs, including fifth-wheels, motor homes, travel trailers, camper vans, toy haulers, pop-ups and more. Storage options will vary by facility, but typically include gated outdoor RV parking. Indoor storage is available in some facilities in the form of drive-up units, oversized units or warehouse-style storage.

For a complete guide to storing your recreational vehicle, read our RV Storage article. 

Small Vehicles, including Motorcycles and Side by Sides

Motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles can be kept in drive-up storage units. Some facilities offer special indoor parking for motorcycles.

Side by sides can be kept in drive-up storage units approximately 10 ft. by 10 ft. If you’re trailering your vehicle, make sure to use the trailer’s dimensions when calculating the size of the unit you need.

Vehicle Storage Checklist

Whatever type of vehicle you’re keeping at a storage facility, it’s important to keep these things in mind when storing a vehicle for any length of time:

Vehicle Storage Do’s

  • Drain as much fuel as possible
  • Invest in a well-made, all-weather cover
  • Winterize your vehicle’s plumbing
  • Make sure your title, registration and insurance are up to date
  • Ensure all wheels are properly inflated and in good shape
  • Check to see that all food is removed
  • Drain all water
  • Clean and dry everything before covering
  • Disconnect the battery
  • Remove alternate fuels, like propane tanks


  • Don’t forget to keep your paperwork up to date. It’s illegal to keep an unlicensed/unregistered vehicle in a storage facility.
  • Don’t work on a vehicle while it’s in storage.
  • Don’t keep tanks filled with fuel.
  • Don’t forget to lock your vehicle.

Don’t forget to run your engine periodically. To preserve tires and to keep things in working order, starting your vehicle at least once a month is recommended.
