It is more important to ensure your car is stored properly in winter than at any other time of the year because of the fluctuating temperatures and adverse weather. Both of these can wreak havoc with the vehicle, possibly even resulting in costly damages. You need to ensure your car is protected against moisture and dramatic temperature changes if you want it to remain in the best condition over the colder months.
The most crucial thing to consider when storing a vehicle is the location. You’ll need somewhere dry and well ventilated so that moisture doesn’t build up. You should avoid locations with bare earth as they can allow moisture to find its way into the space. Concrete floors are much better in this regard and also offer a much more stable surface for the car to rest on.
Good locations will be well insulated and help to keep temperatures as stable as possible during the winter period. If you choose somewhere with little protection temperature fluctuations can generate moisture. This will damage the vehicle, possibly even resulting in corrosion on exposed metal parts. Insulation will help to keep the worst of the cold out and seal more heat in, thereby reducing the impact of the fluctuations and the generation of moisture.
At Rudler Car Transportation and Storage we have created the perfect facilities for safe, secure car storage. Our buildings are purpose built and feature extensive insulation. They are also dehumidified to ensure moisture is removed from the air effectively. We also offer air chambers for people who want even more protection. In a chamber the air is filtered regularly to remove any contaminants and keep the vehicle pristine.
