Small Car Storage Solutions

With the arrival of Canada’s traditional winter, we can usually expect heavy snow, salted roads and well-below freezing temperatures. Any of these conditions can make maintaining your vehicle more challenging.  If you’re looking to keep your vehicle investment in pristine condition over the winter or for a long-term storage duration, our vehicle storage units can provide the peace of mind of knowing that your vehicle is being carefully looked after when it’s not in use.

Car Storage Solutions: Key Features

Whether you drive a hatchback, small jeep, sports car, or economy-sized passenger car, self-storage units for vehicles come in a variety of sizes with various amenities to ensure your car remains secure and protected all season long. Check out key storage features:

Storage Solution Expertise

As the leading self-storage brand in Canada, Public Storage continues to be one of the most trusted names for safe and secure car storage units nation-wide. Our expert professionals have the benefit of accessing over 40 years of industry know-how to find you the best solution for your storage requirements.

Temperature-Controlled Storage Units

Many of our locations feature temperature-controlled self-storage units, which can help protect your vehicle against inclement weather, frigid temperatures, rust formation and sun damage. For car storage with effortless access and maximum protection, opt for a heated unit with drive-up access. As a tip, book or pre-rent your storage space as early as possible, since large, garage-sized temperature-controlled units often have limited availability due to their popularity.

24-Hour Security

At Public Storage, our facilities have modern security measures installed to help keep your prized possessions safe. Each location is equipped with electronic surveillance and PIN access to the property and storage units. Electronic gated access surrounds the premises and alarm systems are in place throughout the site.

Outdoor Rental Space

At many locations, Public Storage also offers outdoor parking spaces for rent in a range of sizes. Whether you’ll be storing a seasonal car or a trailer, your vehicle needs to be insured, and if motorized, it must be in drivable condition before being parked in the designated space that you are renting.
