Dive in to learn more about the benefits of using our storage facilities and why ValuSpace stands out in the realm of vehicle storage.
Why Vehicle Storage is Needed
As urban landscapes become denser and personal spaces shrink, the challenge of finding ample space for your vehicle becomes more pronounced. But the need for vehicle storage goes beyond just the lack of space. Here’s why considering vehicle storage at a specialized facility is not just an option, but often a necessity:
Seasonal Storage: Not every vehicle is used year-round. Classic cars, summer convertibles, or recreational vehicles might only be used seasonally. Keeping them at a storage facility ensures they’re not unnecessarily exposed to harsh winter conditions or summer heat.
Safety: Leaving your vehicle on the street or in a driveway for extended periods can expose it to potential damage from weather, accidents, or even vandalism. A storage facility offers a safer alternative.
Homeowner Association (HOA) Rules: Some residential areas have strict HOA rules that restrict the parking of boats, RVs, or additional cars on the property or the street. Using a storage facility can help you comply with these regulations.
Reduced Clutter: For those with multiple vehicles or limited home parking, a dedicated storage spot ensures your residential area remains uncluttered and aesthetically pleasing.
Travel or Long-Term Absence: If you’re traveling for an extended period or have a temporary work assignment in another city, keeping your vehicle in a secure storage facility can provide peace of mind, knowing it’s safely tucked away.
Whether it’s about convenience, compliance, or care, vehicle storage at a professional facility like ValuSpace Personal Storage answers these challenges efficiently.
Benefits of Storing Your Vehicle at a Storage Facility
Selecting a storage facility like ValuSpace Personal Storage for your vehicle parking needs comes with a myriad of advantages, ensuring your vehicle remains safe, accessible, and in pristine condition. Here are the top benefits you can expect:
Enhanced Security: With 24-hour security camera monitoring, a fenced and gated facility, and on-site management, your vehicle is under constant watch. This robust security infrastructure significantly reduces risks related to theft, vandalism, or accidents.
Protection from Elements: While the parking is uncovered, the strategic layout and professional design of our storage spaces ensure that your vehicle remains shielded from the harshest of environmental factors, from blowing debris to pooling rainwater.
Cost-Effective: Storing your vehicle at a dedicated facility can be more cost-effective in the long run. You save on potential repair bills from damages that could occur when parked on streets or driveways, and there’s no need for additional security installations at home.
Space Optimization: Using a storage facility means your home or business space remains optimized for daily use. Your driveway remains clear, your garage can house items of immediate need, and there’s no need to constantly shuffle vehicles around.
Flexible Terms: At ValuSpace Personal Storage, we understand that everyone’s needs are different. Whether you’re looking for short-term storage during a trip or long-term solutions, our flexible terms cater to all your requirements.

Tips for Storing Your Vehicle
When opting for uncovered vehicle storage, it’s crucial to take additional steps to protect your vehicle from the elements and maintain its condition. Here are some expert tips to ensure your vehicle remains in tip-top shape during its stay at ValuSpace Personal Storage:
Wash and Wax: Before storing your vehicle, give it a thorough wash and apply a coat of wax. This will remove any dirt or contaminants and protect the paint from potential damage caused by dust and other elements.
Check Fluid Levels: Ensure all the vehicle’s fluid levels, including oil, coolant, and brake fluid, are at optimal levels. If you’re storing for an extended period, consider changing the oil and filter to prevent engine damage.
Inflate the Tires: Over time, tires can deflate, especially during colder months. Ensure your tires are adequately inflated to the recommended PSI to prevent flat spots.
Use a Vehicle Cover: Since the storage is uncovered, investing in a quality, weatherproof vehicle cover can protect your car from UV rays, rain, bird droppings, and other potential hazards.
Disconnect the Battery: For longer storage durations, consider disconnecting the battery to prevent it from draining. Alternatively, you can connect it to a battery tender that keeps it charged.
Fill the Gas Tank: A full gas tank prevents moisture from accumulating inside, which can lead to rust. Additionally, adding a fuel stabilizer can prevent the gas from deteriorating.
Seal the Exhaust: To prevent small animals from taking refuge in your exhaust pipe, consider sealing it with an exhaust plug or by using a rag. Just remember to remove it before starting your vehicle again!
Regular Check-ins: Whenever possible, visit your stored vehicle. Start it up, drive it for a few minutes, check for any signs of issues. Regular activity can prevent many long-term storage related problems.
Insurance: Ensure your vehicle’s insurance coverage remains active while it’s stored. Some insurance companies even offer reduced rates for vehicles that aren’t in use.
Document: Before storing, take photos of your vehicle from different angles. This provides a record of its condition, which can be useful for insurance purposes or for your own peace of mind.
Remember, preparation is key when storing your vehicle. These tips will go a long way in ensuring that your car remains in the best possible condition, ready for the road whenever you are. At ValuSpace Personal Storage, we’re here to offer the space you need and the tips to use it effectively.
