Frequently Asked Questions

Can I store a car or motorcycle in a storage unit?

Yes, you can store a car or motorcycle in a storage unit at Extra Space Storage. We offer secure vehicle storage options at many of our self storage locations across the U.S.

Depending on the storage facility and the size of your vehicle, you will have a few different options to choose from when storing a car or motorcycle in a storage unit:

  • Indoor Vehicle Storage

    • Available at locations with drive-up access units for vehicle storage use

    • Provides the best protection from the elements

    • Can be more expensive and limited for certain vehicles

  • Outdoor Vehicle Storage

    • The most common vehicle storage offering at Extra Space Storage

    • Affordable parking spaces that can handle small and large vehicles

    • Doesn't provide protection from the elements

  • Covered Vehicle Storage

    • Commonly used for boat and RV storage due to large stall sizes

    • Provides some protection from the elements

    • Not as widely available as indoor and outdoor vehicle storage

When it comes to car storage, most cars can typically fit inside a 10x20 (or larger) drive-up storage unit. With motorcycle storage, a 5x10 drive-up storage unit (or larger) will work just fine.

It's a good idea to measure the dimensions of your vehicle before renting a vehicle storage unit. Be sure to check out our Vehicle Storage Size Estimator tool!
