Winter Vehicle Storage Tips to Maintain Security & Quality

1. Clean the Inside

Besides the weather, the biggest threat to your vehicle while in storage is pests. They are looking for food and shelter during cold months, so do not give them any reason to be sniffing around your vehicle. Get rid of trash that has piled up, and vacuum well to pick up crumbs. Wipe away stickiness and smells, while focusing on the areas that might have held food in the past few months—cup holders, seat cracks, underneath front seats, under car seats.

2. Wash the Outside

Your paint should stay looking shiny and new as long as you take proper car of your exterior. Before storing your vehicle, wash it and wax it. This will help protect against scratches and rust. If you take precautionary measures before storing your vehicle, you can return to it in excellent, ready-to-drive condition.

3. Fill Up Your Gas Tank

The last thing to do before dropping off your vehicle in storage is to fill your gas tank. When there is extra room in the tank, moisture can build up, causing your car to accelerate poorly later. When storing your vehicle for an extended period of time, add stabilizer to the gas tank, and change your oil.

These few tips are only the beginning to get your vehicle ready to store for the winter. See more expert advice on protecting your vehicle from damaging winter weather.
