by Imperial Storage U Own Condominium Storage Units

Not every vehicle is used by people for daily commuting. Keeping your classic car for the long term due to extended vacations, business trips or any other reason can be risky. Instead of leaving your recreational vehicle unprotected at home, consider storing it at RV and boat storage garage in Boulder to protect it from extreme weather conditions, burglars, and other harmful elements.

No matter why you want to store your classic car, what matters is to know how long you can leave it without driving. Getting classic car storage for sale in Denver and simply parking your vehicle in it for long-term can cause damage to your car in certain ways.

 

        Flat Tires - Flat spots on the tires of an unused car is a common problem. The car weight on tires for an extended period turns them flat on one side.

        Fuel Tank Rust - Moisture will appear on metal and upholstery that condensate inside fuel tanks. Unprotected metal will rust, and mold will begin to grow.

        Battery Drainage - Long-term car storage without maintenance can drain its battery. Your car battery can die due to parasitic draining.

        Brake Pads Seizing - Due to engaged handbrake, the brake pads can seize to the discs against the rotors.

 

It is a good idea to prepare your car for storage and perform regular maintenance. Moreover, take your car down the road at least once a month to keep tires, battery, fuel tank, brake pads, and everything else in good condition.
