Worst to best, starting with worst

Security means different things to different people.  To some people, storing a car in a garage that has a padlock is secure vehicle storage, but give us a crowbar and two minutes and we will show you the fallacy of that thinking.  The pros of this option: it is cheap and easy.  The con of this option: it really isn’t secure at all.

Downtown parking garage

This may or may not be inexpensive.  It may or may not be secure.  It all depends on the downtown parking garages in your area. It is our experience that it is pretty easy to just walk into most downtown parking garages, and if that is the case where you live, then it is not secure at all. The other “security” factor to consider is this: how secure if your car from the weather?  Long stretches of very hot weather, or very cold weather, can damage the surfaces of your car, and there is no protection like that in downtown parking garages.

And the same is true of airport parking!

Self Storage facilities

If saving money is a factor for you, but you still want secure vehicle storage, we highly recommend a  mini storage unit in a self storage building.  You can rent a unit for your car storage for around $100 per month which will include climate controlled storage. Thus your vehicle will be safe from vandalism, theft, and inclement weather.
