Many Floridians are just in the sunshine state part-time, with their summer home further north. Many keep cars down here and need to store their car during the months they are not in the area. Jesses’ Garage is happy to help our clients by providing some maintenance tips and a list of some of the car storage facilities around Sarasota.

We do not endorse any specific location, so make sure you call and check out the facility before storing your vehicle.

When looking for a car storage facility in Florida, pay attention to details such as:

  • the length of the storage space to make sure it will accommodate your vehicle properly
  • is the space climate controlled?
  • will they be performing maintenance? (like battery checks or periodically starting the car)
  • is the space clean and free of rodents?
  • is any insurance provided?
  • is the property gated?

Of course, before you store your car there are a few maintenance issues that should be done such as:

  • making sure the battery is fully charged
  • making sure the tire pressure is at the maximum recommendation
  • add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank
  • have the car cleaned
  • change the oil and oil filter
  • top off your coolant

At Jesse's Garage, your local Florida mechanics in the Sarasota area, we have the expertise and experience to help you with any of these routine maintenance issues before you store your vehicle for the off season. Feel free to contact our office to set up your appointment!
