Whether you need to store a car, motorcycle, boat, or RV, Extra Space Storage offers versatile, secure self storage for vehicles of all sizes. With enclosed drive-up storage units as small as 5×10 up to 50-foot outdoor parking spots, there’s a vehicle storage solution for your needs! Learn more about these storage options below and find in-depth resources for the type of vehicle you need to store.
Vehicle Storage Considerations
Finding a secure vehicle storage option is a priority. With features like electronic gate access, video surveillance, and even on-site managers at select locations, we take security seriously.
Knowing you can conveniently access your vehicle when you need it matters. Our customers love that extended access hours (typically 6am to 10pm) are standard at Extra Space Storage.
Choosing the type of vehicle storage you need is largely determined by the local weather in your area. If harsh weather is a big factor where you live, indoor and covered options are worth looking into.
Types of Vehicle Storage
Extra Space Storage offers three types of vehicle storage: indoor, outdoor, and covered. With different sizes, levels of protection, and costs, each option has its advantages.
Want an enclosed space for your vehicle? Indoor vehicle storage is the option you want. At Extra Space Storage facilities throughout the nation, storage units with drive-up access can be used to store cars, motorcycles, and even small recreational vehicles. Pull the vehicle into the unit, close and lock the door, and you have a garage-like storage space that provides maximum protection from the elements. In most cases, a drive-up storage unit is the more expensive option for storing a vehicle.
If you have a vehicle that’s too large to fit inside an enclosed storage unit, outdoor storage is a good alternative. Outdoor vehicle storage is a common solution for large boats, campers, trailers, motorhomes, and even some commercial vans and trucks. This option is typically available as a designated parking stall or an open parking lot at Extra Space Storage locations. While outdoor parking doesn’t provide coverage from the elements, it’s often the most affordable option for storing a vehicle.
Though not as commonly available at Extra Space Storage, covered vehicle storage is a good in-between solution. Covered storage is essentially outdoor parking with a protective roof, which provides some coverage from sun exposure and precipitation, and the price point generally falls somewhere in the middle of indoor vehicle storage and outdoor vehicle storage. This is a popular option for RVs and boats.
