Finding Winter Vehicle Storage Near You

Finding affordable winter vehicle storage near you does not have to be difficult. When you need self storage in the Pocono Mountains, come to Load and Lock Self Storage. We serve many local residents with our two storage facilities in Albrightsville PA and Canadensis PA. Both locations offer drive-up storage units and outdoor parking, so you have access to vehicle storage and more whenever you need it. Check out our available storage units online, and then follow these tips for safe vehicle storage.

Clean Your Car Out

A big threat for vehicles in the winter is an animal sniffing around, looking for food and shelter. Get rid of any food smells, including crumbs, wrappers, or packed-away food items. Vacuum the interior, and wipe down any hard surfaces. Once the inside is covered, move your attention to the exterior. To assure you come back to your vehicle in excellent condition, wash and scrub it well. Finish off with a coat of wax to protect your paint job and help prevent rust.

Protect Your Fuel

Fill up your gas tank before storing. If there is space in the gas tank, moisture can form, which will ultimately cause your vehicle to accelerate poorly when you go to drive it later. Avoid that by filling your gas tank, and if you are storing for a few months, also add stabilizer.
