Vehicle Storage Guidelines

What you need to know before you store.

Secure vehicle storage is always a great choice! It's even better when you're prepared. These general vehicle storage guidelines offer an overview of what to expect, but please refer to your rental agreement for complete details.

  • 7.
    Before storing your auto or small-engine vehicle, remove as much gasoline from the fuel tank as possible.

    For long-term vehicle storage, check fuel lines and gaskets, laying down cardboard to protect the unit’s floor.
