Preparing Your Vehicle for Storage

When storing your vehicle, whether it’s a cherished classic car, a convenient family caravan, or even agricultural machinery, the right preparation can make all the difference in maintaining its condition.

General Preparation for All Vehicles

  • Clean Thoroughly. Wash the exterior to prevent rust and clean the interior to avoid attracting pests. For machinery, remove any plant matter or soil.
  • Fluids Check and Maintenance. Ensure all fluids are topped up, and consider changing the oil to prevent corrosion inside the engine.
  • Battery Care. Disconnect the battery to avoid drainage. For long-term storage, consider using a trickle charger.
  • Tyre Pressure. Inflate the tyres to the recommended pressure to prevent flat spots from forming during storage.
  • Ventilation. Leave windows slightly open for cars and caravans to prevent moisture buildup. Use breathable covers if covering.

Tips for Specific Vehicles

  • Cars. Wax the exterior to add an extra layer of protection.
  • Caravan. Drain any water tanks and lines to prevent freezing and mould, and turn off all gas supplies.
  • Agricultural Machinery. Remove any attachments, clean them separately, and dry them before storing them to prevent rust.

Following these preparatory steps guarantees your vehicle remains in top condition while it’s stored at Kangaroo Self Storage, giving you one less thing to worry about until you’re ready to use it again!
