3 Steps to Prepare Your Vehicle for Automobile Storage, Dothan, Alabama

If you have an unused vehicle taking up space in your driveway and selling isn’t an option, automobile storage is your solution. With the right storage facility, you’ll know your prized possession is safe and protected while you free up space at your home. American Self Storage offers automobile storage at gated facilities that are clean and well-lit; you’ll have access to your vehicle 24/7, and month-to-month contracts are affordable and convenient. But before you bring your car over, you’ll need to get it ready.

3 Tasks to Prepare for Automobile Storage

1. Remove Your Belongings

The automobile storage area at American Self Storage is protected with security cameras, but it’s important to remove all valuables from the vehicle. Take out your removable sound system and check under the seats for things you want to take home.

2. Clean Inside & Out

3. Buy a Car Cover

Automobile storage will protect your vehicle from weather and other outside elements, but a car cover will help preserve its shine. Purchase a quality cover specifically manufactured for your car’s model. It should fit snugly around the frame but still be easy to put on and remove.

The most important step in preparing your car or truck for automobile storage is choosing the right temporary storage facility. American Self Storage is a trusted facility with years of experience in storing and protecting people’s valuable possessions.
