Renting Vehicle Storage at Extra Space Storage

Curious what it’s like to rent vehicle storage at Extra Space Storage? Hear from our customers about their experience! We provide a range of vehicle storage options for cars, RVs, boats, and more. Choose from indoor drive-up storage units to spacious outdoor parking spaces.


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.

Indoor Storage

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.

Outdoor Storage

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, and motorhomes, as well as 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 a good option for cheap vehicle storage!

Covered Storage

Though not as commonly available at Extra Space Storage, covered vehicle storage is a good in-between cost solution. Covered vehicle 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.

Outdoor storage is ideal for personal vehicles such as cars, trailers, and even work equipment. This is a less-expensive option and is often more suitable for larger vehicles.


The type of vehicle you plan to store makes a difference when it comes to which vehicle storage option you should choose. Learn more about the best solutions for storing cars, boats, RVs, and other vehicles!
