Get Your Vehicle Ready for Storage

Follow our car storage tips

Concerned about keeping your vehicle in storage? Don't be- the local storage pros at Maine Boat RV Storage are here to help you get your vehicle storage-ready.

Before storage, you should:

  • Wash your vehicle to remove dirt, road salts and other debris
  • Fill your gas tanks and add a fuel stabilizer
  • Change your oil and replace your air filters
  • Flush and replace your antifreeze
  • Fill your tires with air

We'll make sure that your vehicle is completely ready before we put it into storage.

Take all the necessary precautions

On storage day, you should:

  • Place baking soda packages inside your vehicle and in the trunk
  • Disconnect your car battery
  • Close all car windows

After storage, you should:
  • Charge your car battery before trying to start your car
  • Remove the baking soda packages from the interior and trunk
  • Inspect the interior and exterior of your car for damage, leaks or other issues
  • Pump the brakes
  • Start your vehicle and check all features, like the lights, turn signals, wipers and horn
  • Give your car time to warm up before leaving the facility
  • Deep clean your car

After a few hours of driving, be sure to recheck your car to make sure there are no leaks or other mechanical issues.
