    Indoor winter storage for car


    This seems to be a pain in the ass every year, and when I complain about it, my wife likes to remind me that we have a 2 car garage, it just happens to be full of motorcycles.

    Anyway....looking for cheap indoor storage for a small convertible. Ideally on the North Shore, but Worcester to Boston to S.NH to S.ME is fine. Don't need heat or electricity, or access once it's stored. Garage, warehouse, shipping container, barn...whatever. Basically looking for November through March.

    I found a place close by, but it's expensive. Found a cheap place, but the guy won't call me back. Got any extra space this winter, or leads?

    Many thanks!

    Buy a four post lift. Store the car over the motorcycles!

    First you screw, then you bolt.

    Sadly, I have a low loft (full of motorcycles and parts), so I don't think I could go high enough. I like the ingenuity though! Keep 'em coming!

    What is expensive and what is cheap? most places that I've seen for indoors are heated and provide electric for battery tenders but they are usually around $350/month

    Thanks - I definitely don't need heat or electricity, but obviously a bonus.

    I usually pay about $100-125/month. The "cheap" place I'm chasing now is $75/mo, but I'd pay more than that just to have it done with.

    Another alternative would be those moving pods. Put the bikes in there and put the car in the garage.

    I'm paying $325ish a month for heated + electricity in NH for a 31' RV, car should be less than half that.

    NHMS was $400 for the winter. Not heated but had power for a battery tender and mouse scarer.

    No idea about how much they charge, but Garage 42 in Woburn offers storage services

    I had a ball ache trying to find somewhere to store my gt500 south of boston. I got so tired of dealing with all deadbeats. Making appointments to view places and no one shows up and no call backs were on the top of the list. I got so feed up i started searching for the highest reviewed places online ad just to see the difference and i got in touch with a company in virginia. The price was so good and the services they offered added so much more that i just ushipped my car to them and will uship it back. It still ends up being far cheaper than any local place that was giving me less service anyway.
    My car is on a tender, started every week and is moved monthly so the tires dont get flat spots. I can see it online if i want. I think its 125 a month or so.

    If you have room, you can buy a steel car trailer for a decent already depreciated price and just store it in the trailer. Obviously not heated but you said that it's not an issue. About $3k should get you in the door. Sell it once you're done with it for same money.

    Thatís crazy, but I believe it. Iím currently trying to get into NHMS. Itís $500 for the winter. Not heated, but they have electricity. They require some weird insurance on your vehicle, so Iím trying to figure that part out now.
