Winter & Summer Storage Tips

Things to consider doing before storing:

Prepare the stored item thoroughly, inside and out. This includes removing desired personal items, vacuuming the interior to remove all food/snacks. Applying vinyl, rubber, and leather protectants to appropriate surfaces. Use a wheel cleaner to remove all traces of brake dust, which is highly corrosive. Apply a coat of wax to the exterior and the wheels, weather and temperature permitting. Disengage the handbrake. Be sure the car is completely dry before you cover it and walk away.

Preserve the battery. Consider a battery trickle charger to maintain battery performance, or disconnect the battery and move it to a heated space.

Avoid flat-spotting the tires. The simplest solution is to inflate tires to the manufactures recommended maximum inflation pressure on the sidewall. Do not exceed it or risk tire damage.

Prepare the fuel system. Add fuel stabilizer, and fill the fuel tank. Temperature variation may create condensation within the gas tank. Finally, run the engine long enough to circulate the stabilized fuel throughout the injection system.

Refresh fluids. Ideally, an oil and filter change should precede storage, thus removing acids and other nasty waste products that may corrode the inside of your motor.

Cover the car. Use a good quality, form-fitting cover with a soft inner layer. The cover needs to be as clean as the car. Dust between the cover and the paint will act like an abrasive, dulling and scratching the finish. The cover should be able to “breathe” to let moisture escape. Recommend leaving the windows and trunk cracked slightly open to allow air circulation.

Maintain insurance coverage. Insurance reimbursement on paid premiums may be available on stored cars, boats, etc. by reducing liability insurance to the minimum allowed. Check with your insurance agent to see if this applies to you. Maintain comprehensive coverage on your property throughout the storage period. Some agents require a copy of the storage agreement to confirm the storage period.
