Texas car storage comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, from your buddy’s garage to buildings which resemble Fort Knox. What should you look for, and what can you reasonably expect for your storage fees? Call us at (817) 999-0980 if you have questions after reading this article. We are Fort Worth Car Storage, and we are standing by to answer your questions.
The type of vehicle storage depends on the type of car you own.
This is probably a truth many people do not want to acknowledge, but the type of vehicle storage in Fort Worth really should depend on the value of your car and its importance to you. To put it another way, vehicle storage for a 2002 Toyota Camry really should be different from storage for a 2002 Porsche Targa if the decision is strictly based on the monetary value of the car. Yes, the theft of the Camry would hurt, but it would not hurt as much as the loss of a $100,000 Targa . . . unless that Camry is crucial to its owner to run a business, and the Targa is simply a toy for some rich dude, in which case the relative value of each changes.
All of this is to say you need to consider the real value of your car before looking at car storage. The more important it is to you, the more secure you will want that auto storage facility to be.
Price of auto storage is usually important.
And what can you expect to pay? At our facility, Fort Worth Car Storage, you can expect our base package to cost $250 per month. Mind you, ours is antique auto storage and collector car storage, and mind you ours is very secure auto storage, secure as in state-of-the-art security system. Our facility might be a bit of an overkill for someone who owns a 2002 Camry, but it is expected by car collectors.
For those of you who fall under the 2002 Camry category, there are less-expensive options. Most mini storage facilities can handle auto storage for as low as $100 per month, so you do have reasonably-priced options for less-expensive vehicles. And of course there is always your buddy’s garage, but we wouldn’t suggest it.
What other factors to consider in auto storage?
It is our experience that people like to deal with a locally owned and operated company. It adds a personal touch to the business deal, and it is always nice to talk face-to-face with the person you are entering a contract with. And it is always nice to have options available should you want it, options like regular maintenance, car detailing, car covers, and climate controlled car storage. Yes those amenities cost extra, but it’s nice to know they are available should you want them.
That should give you enough to think about. Again, if you have questions, and you want to talk to a real live person, give us a call at Fort Worth Car Storage. We have been in this business for thirty years, so we know a thing or two about quality Texas car storage.
