Vehicle Storage Recommendations:
Wash Your Vehicle – a car or motorcycle shouldn’t be covered in road salt or dirt before you put it into storage, and it should be waxed to prevent rust. There are car cleaning companies in Milton, Burlington, Guelph, Oakville and Mississauga that will wash your car by hand.
Look After Your Tires –When a car sits for a while, it can develop flat spots on its tires. Car gurus recommend adding an extra 10 lbs of air to prevent these flat spots.
Watch for Drips - Put plastic under your engine so that each time you visit your vehicle, you can see if you have any leaks or drips.
Look After the Gas – Old gas can become destabilized or absorb water from condensation, damaging your gas tank and carburetor. You can either drain your gas tank or use a fuel stabilizer.
Change the Oil – Old oil has byproducts and acids that can cause damage to your vehicle. Change the oil and oil filter to protect your car or motorcycle.
Battery Care – To avoid your battery from being drained, disconnect the negative side, or remove your battery and attach a trickle charger (a car battery charger designed to be left on a car for a long period to re-charge the battery), instead. You can purchase a trickle charger at most big box stores in and around Milton, Guelph, Burlington, Mississauga or Oakville, such as the Battery Tender Junior Charger, for approximately $30.
Lock Your Vehicle – Close all of your windows and doors (for a car) and use a sheet or a cover to protect the paint on your vehicle.
Insurance – Speak with your insurance provider to ensure continued coverage based on your specific policy. The Government of Ontario does not require a seasonal vehicle (one that will not be driven for an extended period of time) to have road, liability and accident benefits insurance, but does recommend comprehensive insurance to protect against fire, theft or other types of damages. However, before you take your vehicle onto the road, you must ensure to resume the road insurance again (which can take 2-3 weeks depending on your insurance company and how fast they can report to the Insurance Bureau of Canada), and your license plate sticker must be renewed or current. We are happy to refer you to an insurance provider in Oakville, Milton, Guelph, Mississauga and Burlington.
Visit Your Car – Visit your car or motorcycle at least once a month. It’s important to get the fluids moving in your vehicle or else hoses can break down and belts can start to crack. Consider it a good excuse to go for a drive in and around Milton, Oakville, Guelph, Mississauga and Burlington!
