Winter Vehicle Storage Tips

Wash the Outside

When you come to pick up your vehicle from storage, you will not want to deal with dirt and bugs that have been on your windshield for months. Give your car a nice deep clean and a wax beforehand to protect against rust and paint damage.

Vacuum and Wipe Down Inside

With the same thought process as washing the exterior, do yourself a favor and clean your entire vehicle before parking it in storage. Take some time to vacuum crumbs and collect garbage that might attract pests. Clean up any old spills, and check for items inside your car that you might need while it is at the storage facility.

Find a Cover

Whether you are storing something small, like a car, or a larger vehicle, like an RV, you should cover it before you leave it. After you clean the ins and outs, make sure your hard work does not go to waste. Protect your paint and wax jobs with a cover.

Prevent Moisture in Your Gas Tank

The best way to prevent moisture in your gas tank is to fill it with gas. If you plan to keep your vehicle in winter storage for more than three months, you should also add stabilizer.
