Automotive items require different storage techniques then most other supplies you may store. Our West Haven CT car storage tips set you and your RV or car up for a successful storing experience. Check what you need to know before storing in cooler weather.


  • Washing your car is a great place to start. While you are cleaning, if you notice any areas that need extra attention make a note to come back and fix them.
  • Make sure all windows and doors are secure and shut. To avoid a smelly car in the spring, a box of baking soda will absorb any unwanted smells.
  • What do you do to prevent flat spots? Jacks can be useful or simply inflate the tires to the maximum psi.
  • Fill up the tank with the appropriate mixture of gas and stabilizer.
  • Checking up on your car in storage is not a bad idea, however try not to start your car. It may be tempting but it will undo all your winterizing.
  • Do not forget about the battery. The cold temperatures can zap the life out of this important part and cause some trouble in the spring.
