Whether you’re working on restoring your dream Camaro Z28 to its former glory or you just love working on cars and have a vast array of expensive auto parts all over your garage, it probably has crossed your mind that a garage is not the best place to keep it all.
Your Garage: Not The Best Storage Place
For starters, the garage can be easily broken into. Burglars are quite aware that this space often holds high-end tools and equipment and is not generally wired with a security system. And how many times have we left the door to the garage open, coming and going, or doing gardening around the house? That’s an open invitation to anyone passing by to run in and run away with an expensive vehicle part or some other treasure.
Secondly, climate conditions in a garage can wreak serious damage on auto parts. Our weather’s extremes of cold and hot, as well as humidity and lack of ventilation inside the garage is known to impair all kinds of equipment, tools and car parts. And you probably will have to keep these custom-made and rare auto parts for awhile because it takes time to turn that old wreck into the car of your dreams. But, let’s face it, for car fanatics, half the fun is getting there!
The Pros Of A Storage Container
There is a better place than a garage to store those expensive auto parts that will one day make it possible for you to drive your fully restored Camaro Z28, showing it off to all. Just rent or buy a storage container.
These days, shipping and mobile storage containers come in all kinds of sizes and can be modified into all sorts of variously purposed spaces. Think labs and offices, workshops and even livable housing or cottages.
You can rent or buy a container that will not only house your four-wheeled gem-in-the-rough and all the parts that will eventually go in it, but will also function as a workspace, so you can work on the car anytime.
More importantly, these container units have special ventilation systems that prevent condensation buildup. We all know what humidity and condensation can do to anything made out of steel or iron, or electrical systems. A container with a ventilation system will protect your prized possessions from corrosion and rust damage. And with customized shelving units inside the container, your auto parts will stay organized and easily accessible. No more tripping over the lawnmower or the snowblower to find that brake pad or spark plug!
But most importantly, these container units come with a high security lockbox. That lock on the container door cannot be breached with any burglar gear, such as a grinder or a bolt cutter. So, no more worrying that something may be stolen!
Admit it, there are few things as important to a guy as his car! Chances are that when it comes to restoring your dream car or working on any vehicle fixing this and improving that, you spare little expense when it comes to parts. A storage container outfitted to suit your needs will keep your costly vehicle parts not only well organized and easily accessible, but more importantly, safe and secure.
