Are You Working On Your Classic Car?

We’ve written before about storing your classic car in a self-storage unit, but if you have an automobile that you plan on fixing up and driving around town, then you may not need to store it, but rather all of the other stuff in your garage or workshop. You want to have a dedicated space where you can easily move around and get under the car, and if there are boxes or tools in your way, progress can be hard to come by. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we have the ideal solutions for all of your extra belongings.

Setting Up Your Work Area

dreamstime_xxl_19656227You might be planning to put down a new floor in your garage, which means you have to move everything out of the space. This can be a great time to go through those random boxes that have been sitting in there for years and decide what to keep, what to store, and what to give or throw away. Once the new floor is down, it’s time to design and set up your work area. You might be adding a new workbench where you can work on small engine parts, and you’ll definitely need a pegboard so all of your mechanic’s tools will stay organized. For the main area, you’ll want to be sure you can easily walk around the car and open the hood without things getting in the way, and you’ll need to be able to slide under the car to work on the vehicle. You’ll most likely have a floor jack and/or jack stands, and you’ll want to be sure nothing could fall and compromise the stability of the car when you have it jacked up, especially if you’re working underneath it. A clear and clean workspace is the best way to ensure you’re able to work on your classic car when and how you want to.

Storing Other Vehicles

Our storage facilities have room for cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles that you want out of the way while you tune up your hot rod. Our month-to-month leases make it easy to store things short term, so if you only work on your car during the summer when you’re taking it to auto shows around Michigan, you won’t have to worry about paying for the entire year.
