What should you pay for vehicle storage? That’s somewhat of a tricky question, because the price range for car storage is a broad one. The quick answer to the question, however, is this: you should pay as much as you feel your car deserves. In other words, what is your car worth to you?

But back to the question?
What is your car worth to you?
What is vehicle storage worth to you?
When answering this question, keep in mind that there are monetary values and emotional values. Each has to be considered when considering how to store your vehicle.
What is your car worth? Blue book value? Purchase value plus improvements you have made minus depreciation? Is it a 2000 Nissan Altima, or a 1930 Ford? To put it another way, would you dress a pig in a designer gown?
How much would you pay for car storage for a 2000 Nissan Altima? How much for a 1930 Ford? One may be worth, monetary value, $1500. The other might be worth $100,000 on the open market. Would you pay $250 per month for indoor auto storage for the Nissan? How about collector car storage for that 1930 Ford?
Now it gets a bit trickier. That 2000 Nissan might be your first car and, as such, have emotional value to you. You may not feel the same towards that 1930 Ford. I know a man who was given a 1967 Chevy Camaro by his dying father. He says he will never sell that car, and would do anything to keep it safe so he can give it to his son when the time comes.
The real world of vehicle storage pricing
In the world of dollars, cents, and Supply and Demand, you can expect to pay about $100 per month in a self storage facility for car storage. A little more, a little less, but that’s a nice round figure to work with. In an antique car storage facility, or collector car storage facility, you will pay at least $250 per month and quite possible more for special features like a car cover or bubble storage.
So, how much should you pay for vehicle storage? As much as is necessary to meet your needs would be our answer! There are enough options out there to cover the needs and desires of any car owner, so rest assured, when the time arrives, you will find what you deem “good enough” for your car.
