Car storage is designed to give you a safe and secure option to store your car for whatever reason you might have.

Either way, you want to know your car is safe and protected.  AAA Self Storage has covered car storage in El Paso at affordable prices.  When you are getting ready to store your vehicle, check out AAA Self Storage and then take a few basic steps to get the car ready so it stays drivable as it waits for your return.

Getting Your Car Ready for Storage

You want your car to be ready to drive when you are done storing it and you want it to stay in good condition even when it is not being used all the time. There are a few things you can do to maximize the chances that your car will store safely.  For example, you want to fill your gas tank all the way up to the top to displace water and prevent oxidization. You can buy a fuel system stabilizer to add to the gas if you are going to be storing the car for a long time. You also want to clean the interior of the vehicle thoroughly so the interior doesn’t become a welcoming environment for mice or rodents and so you don’t get mold and mildew growing inside of the car.

Choosing a Safe Car Storage Location

Readying the vehicle is only half the battle when it comes to effective car storage. You should be sure you have selected an El Paso storage facility that keeps your vehicle secure and free from damage.
