Beyond Self Storage at Oakley Offers Trickle-Charging
Do you have a hand-me-down car you are not using but cannot part with? Did you finally save up for that fancy car that is not the best for everyday use? Need to store your convertible for winter? Did you find a classic that is full of memories? Beyond Self Storage has you covered for your car storage needs.
A Quick Vehicle Storage Checklist
Many of our locations offer indoor and outdoor storage for vehicles. It is helpful to keep a few things in mind prior to storing a vehicle:
- Get your vehicle washed and waxed before placing it in storage
- Use a fuel stabilizer if the vehicle will be sitting for months – this will protect your fuel tank
- Use rags to block entry points for any critters – Beyond has routine pest control – but better safe than sorry!
- If you are parking in an exterior spot, we highly recommend a car cover for extra protection
And the most common item to keep in mind, the battery.
Trickle Charging is Available at our Cincinnati Storage Facility
At Beyond Self Storage, a unique feature that we are launching at our Cincinnati (Oakley) location, is trickle charging.
Trickle charging is basically a slow charge that is typically safe to remain active for an extended period. The system has a regulator that prevents overcharging, so damage to the battery is avoided.
Keeping The Car Battery Ready For Your Return
You pay a very minimal fee on top of your rental amount and you have access to trickle charging for your vehicle. Most trickle chargers can remain connected for months, making this a safe option for your battery to be ready to go for you when you return to take it for a spin.
