Where Can I Leave My Car For a Week?

February 6, 2024

Whether it’s to avoid the hassle of navigating parking restrictions or simply to keep your car running smoothly, many people find themselves in a situation where they need to leave their vehicle for an extended period of time. Whether you’re going away for a week or a month, there are a few different places where you can leave your vehicle while you’re on vacation.

The most obvious option is to leave your vehicle with a trusted friend or family member. This is most effective if they have a driveway or extra garage space, as this will allow you to bypass street parking rules and ensure that your car will be safe and sound. However, it’s important to have a conversation with the person you’re leaving your vehicle with about your arrangements and make sure that they are comfortable with it. Also, be aware that your car will be sitting idle for an extended period of time and may require maintenance while you’re gone.

Another option is to rent a long-term car storage facility. These facilities are often climate controlled and provide a safe place to store your car. Before storing your vehicle, be sure to disconnect the battery and get all of the fluids topped off. You might also want to jack up the tires to relieve pressure and extend their life. Finally, be sure to remove any valuables and take the keys with you.
