3 Reasons To Consider Winter Car Storage

Vehicle owners across Canada dread that first drop in temperature which represents a clear sign that winter is on the horizon. It’s a sign that means vehicle maintenance needs are going to have to be considered carefully in the coming weeks. Many vehicle owners are proactively preparing for the winter seasons by reviewing vehicle storage options.

Checking Car

Today we’re taking a look at three reasons to consider car storage this winter season.

  1. Freeing Up Space around the Home
  2. One of the leading benefits of winter vehicle storage is the amount of space it will provide vehicle owners around their home. It can allow owners to achieve a clear space across the driveway and lawn areas for children to play in during the winter. It can also allow for more effective removal of snow from a driveway space while using a snow blower. This ensures that all areas can be cleared effectively to minimizing the damage the cooler temperatures have on the driveway space.

    We all know that these aren’t exactly enjoyable tasks, so making it as easy as possible on yourself is the first step towards an enjoyable season.

  3. Additional Vehicle Security
  4. In some areas of the city, drivers may find that their vehicle is at risk of being stolen or broken into during the winter months while it goes unused. Vehicle theft and window breaking incidents can take time to recover from, and will require the vehicle owner to fill out extensive paperwork to ensure they retrieve the value in the car. To prevent this type of issue, many vehicle owners are now choosing to store their car in a private storage facility. These facilities are usually monitored throughout the year to ensure that a security specialist can be on-site in seconds to react to a potential issue.

  5. Vehicle Parts Protection
  6. Many elements of a vehicle can be damaged by being exposed to the extreme temperatures of the Canadian wintertime. From the engine system to the transmission, most major components can suffer failure if not protected from the cold.

    A lot of drivers have found that their vehicles lose significant performance during a particularly cold winter season. In addition, cooler temperatures can also impact vehicle mileage, preventing the optimal use of gas within the engine. Storing a vehicle in a covered storage facility for the wintertime can help prevent many of these component issues.

By entrusting their vehicle storage needs to a local storage expert, Canadian owners can protect their vehicles this coming winter season. To learn more on this subject, contact our trusted specialists directly!
