FAQs

Is The Vault a safe place to store my car?

Yes, The Vault’s 13,000 sq ft of car storage has only 3 access points that have been reinforced for extra security. We also employ a leading San Diego security company to monitor the building with sensors, motion detectors, and 10 video cameras. This building is truly locked down like a vault. So if you are looking for a month-to-month or long-term car storage, The Vault is truly the place for your car.

Can I pick up my car while it’s in storage?

Sure; The Vault car storage offers in & out privileges for your car. Some packages come with In&out access included in the storage fee and with others there may be an additional fee. Pre-notification times vary please call us to learn more about the different options.

How long can I store my car?

Storage at The Vault is month-to-month. There are no time contracts and you can pick up your car anytime with a 48-hour notice. We’ll keep your car at The Vault as long as you need storage.

Do I need to keep my insurance while it’s at The Vault?

The Vault keeps a “Garage Keepers” insurance policy that covers our client’s cars in case of an operational incident. However, we do still require you to maintain the comprehensive portion of your policy while stored at The Vault. Some insurance companies offer a reduced rate policy for cars that are not being driven. We have preferred insurance brokers that would be happy to answer any of your specific long-term car storage questions.

How should I prepare my car for storage?

It depends on how long you expect to store your car. The Vault’s staff can advise you on the proper steps to prepare your car for long term car storage so that your car will come out in its best possible condition. Here are a few tips and things to consider before storing your car.

1. Tires are properly inflated
2. New oil and fluids

4. Gas tank filled
5. Battery disconnected (or use the trickle charger)

Taking these simple steps and regular maintenance at The Vault will ensure your car will be as good driving out as it was driving in.

Can The Vault help me sell my car?

The Vault has a re-sale division called Veloce Motorsales (www.velocemotorsales.com). Many of The Vault’s car storage clients have chosen to consign their cars with us to sell. For a small percentage of the sales price, Veloce Motors will market and sell your vehicle directly from The Vault Storage facility.

Does my car need to be registered?
