Houston, TX, December 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- To prepare for the upcoming vacation season, Houston storage company Proguard Self Storage, available online at http://www.ProguardStorage.com, is promoting its vehicle storage rental services. While typically used for extra household items, or boats and RVs at certain locations, many of the company's climate controlled storage units also make for ideal automobile storage. Short- and long-term storage rental is available, providing an effective solution for vacationers planning to go away for just the holidays, as well as those who will be gone for the bulk of the winter.
“With the holiday season approaching, many people will be going away on vacation and will want a place to store their vehicles. Our Texas storage units are great for keeping cars clean and safe while their owners are away, both for shorter and longer excursions,” said Blenda Stapleton, a Proguard Self Storage facility manager.
Most Proguard Storage rental units are equipped with slip-in cylinder dead-bolt locks, as well as door alarms alerting on-site managers of activity. The grounds are also monitored with streaming video surveillance cameras and surrounded by 8’ barbed-wire security fences. Each storage location features individual entry codes for every renter, as well as computerized door/gate control access.
The Houston public storage facility boasts a number of storage units suitable for vehicle storage, made even more convenient by the company's large roll-up doors and wide driveways for easy maneuvering. Vehicle owners can enjoy Proguard Self Storage’s automobile rental storage services year round; the units prove to be particularly useful for car collectors, as well as drivers who spend a lot of time abroad.
“There are certain things an automobile owner can do to keep his or her vehicle in good condition while it's in storage, depending on how long it will be kept at the storage location. Covering the vehicle is always recommended, to protect from dust particles in the air. For longer storage rental periods, it's important to make sure the tank isn’t empty; otherwise, moisture can condense and cause rusting. We also recommend guests use a fuel stabilizer to keep the gas from corroding; make sure the oil is fresh; and drive the car for a few hours to help with fuel and oil circulation,” said Stapleton.
