Not everyone wants secure vehicle storage for their car for the winter. If you drive a 2003 VW, and it’s your primary mode of transportation, the idea of storage for your car over the winter is a foreign one.
But if you drive a collector car, or a restored car like a 1969 Camaro, and it is not your primary means of transportation, we highly recommend that you at least consider winter storage.
Call us with your questions after you read this article. We have answers. We are Fort Worth Car Storage, and we have thirty years of experience as the premier collector car storage facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Why winter car storage?
It almost seems silly we even have to answer this question, but we will do so to lay to rest any doubts. The answer is this: rain, snow, wind, sleet, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, and . . . shall we continue?
If you have an exotic car, a collector car, or an antique car, and you have tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars wrapped up in it, do you really want to risk all that value to the fickleness of Mother Nature? A simple windstorm can mean a large tree branch falling through your garage roof. Blowing wind can mean debris scratching your paint job. Hailstorms can mean serious body work. Severe temperature fluctuations can mean damage to electronic and computer components. Did you really go to all that work, restoring your 1940 Chevy, just to have a winter storm set you back five thousand dollars in repairs?
It makes no sense!
What does winter car storage cost?
We can only answer for our company, Fort Worth Car Storage, but our basic storage package costs $250 per month and yes, that is climate controlled car storage. Premium services are, of course, extra. And for those who think that is a heavy cost, consider this: the average winter is what, three or four months, depending on where you live? Let’s say four months. At Fort Worth Car Storage, choosing the standard storage plan, that computes to $1,000 for your winter storage fees.
Compare that cost to the cost of a new paint job, or body work on your hood, or replacing an entire side panel.
$1,000 is a steal by comparison to the cost of repairing your prized vehicle.
Again, we do not recommend winter vehicle storage for every vehicle. There are many vehicles which are simply not worth the extra cost of $250 per month for protection. We are only talking to those car owners who have a vehicle worth quite a bit in investment dollars, a vehicle which has replacement costs which are astronomical. Any investment of $100,000 should be protected to the max, and winter vehicle storage is maximum protection when the wind starts howling and the rains start pounding.
