Small-business owners use vehicle storage for their work trucks, heavy equipment, landscaping vehicles, and more. Hunting and fishing aficionados use boat and RV storage in Oklahoma to keep their vehicles and their gear safe and sound during the off season. Just about anyone can use vehicle storage in Oklahoma, as long as they’ve got a vehicle that needs a safe and secure home.
Why use vehicle storage in Oklahoma for your boat, RV, or other specialty vehicle? Maybe you don’t have room in the garage or driveway. Maybe you need someplace to keep that project car out of the elements when you’re not working on it. Maybe your HOA has a policy against having boats or RVs parked in your driveway or back yard. Or maybe you’re serving in the military and just need a place to park your car while you’re stationed out of the state or overseas. Whatever your reason, there’s a solution waiting for you at Storage ‘R’ Us!
At Storage ‘R’ Us, we’re always working to make our self storage facilities better. That means improving services and amenities for every type of storage, from our climate controlled storage to boat and RV storage, and lots more. In fact, our Rogers Lane location in Lawton is currently undergoing some renovations so that we can offer bigger and better vehicle storage in Oklahoma, hopefully by sometime in 2019!
To learn more about vehicle storage in Oklahoma or reserve a space for your camper, boat, RV, classic car, or other vehicle today, visit our NEW vehicle storage page or contact one of our convenient self storage locations in Newcastle, Lawton, Moore, or Duncan. And don’t forget to pick up some insurance for your vehicle before you put it into storage. Our boat and RV storage may be safe and secure, but when it comes to Oklahoma weather, you can never be too careful.
There are as many reasons why people turn to vehicle storage in Oklahoma as there are vehicles stored at our many locations. Some people need an auto storage space to store long-term project cars while they’re working on them, or classic cars that they don’t often drive. Some people have work trucks or other equipment that they only use for part of the year, while others need a place to keep ATVs, motorcycles, RVs, boats, and other specialty vehicles during the off-season, especially since many homeowners’ associations have rules against parking RVs or boats in your back yard or driveway.
Vehicle storage can also be a good way to free up space in your garage, or to protect RVs, boats, classic cars, and more from weather damage such as hail, ice, and scorching heat. Here in Oklahoma, we’re no strangers to all of the above. Whatever your reasons for turning to auto storage in Oklahoma, there are things you should know before you bring your car, boat, motorcycle, or RV in for vehicle storage. Fortunately, we’ve got the answers you’re looking for:
There are steps that you can take to help prepare just about anything for long-term storage so that it’s as good-as-new (or good as it was when you left it, anyway) and ready to go when you need it. That goes double for auto storage. After all, vehicles are complex machines made up of metal and rubber and vinyl. There’s a lot that goes into keeping your car, boat, or RV running smoothly, and all of that should be taken into account before you drop it off for vehicle storage in Oklahoma.
Take your car in for a tune-up before you bring it in for storage to make sure that everything is in good shape. Fill it up with gas to prevent condensation in gas tanks, and consider investing in a “battery maintainer” to help keep your battery in good shape if you’re going to be leaving your vehicle in storage for long periods without driving it. It’s also a good idea to take a few precautions to help keep critters out of your vehicle while it’s in storage. Make sure that your vehicle is nice and clean before you bring it in, and maybe stick a bit of steel wool in the tailpipe to discourage four-legged visitors from nesting in there.
Naturally! In fact, auto storage is a great solution for protecting a particularly sweet ride that you don’t take out on the road every day. The keys to using vehicle storage in Oklahoma for your classic car are simply to make sure that it’s well taken care of, visit it regularly, drive it now and again, and, of course, pick up some insurance to help cover it in the event of damage from a tornado or other natural disaster. It’s also important to make sure that you keep an up-to-date credit card on file to cover the month-to-month rent on your auto storage unit. After all, nobody wants to see their beloved 1957 convertible sold at a self-storage auction because they forgot to pay their bill.
Since RVs tend to be seasonal vehicles, auto storage can be a great solution for them during the off-season, especially if you don’t have space in your yard or driveway, or if your homeowners’ association has rules against boats or RVs. Of course, RVs need the same kind of prep as any other vehicle before they go into storage—not just under the hood, but in the cabin of the RV, as well. And it’s especially important to clean up any food crumbs or other things that might attract insects and animals, who often find parked RVs to be ideal lodgings.
The fact is, you can store all kinds of vehicles in auto storage, from RVs and boats to ATVs, work trucks, seasonal vehicles, and lots more. Here is just a partial list of what’s welcome in vehicle storage in Oklahoma:
The short answer is that gate hours are generally set by the self storage facility. At Storage ‘R’ Us in Oklahoma, gate hours are typically Monday through Sunday from 7am to 9pm. When choosing a vehicle storage solution in Oklahoma, your best bet is to talk with the on-site office manager at the facility that you’re interested in, identify what kind of access you think you need, and work together with the storage facility to make your decision.
When you put a car, boat, RV, or any other vehicle into storage, it’s a good idea to leave yourself a note somewhere that you’ll be sure to find it, reminding you of anything that you might need to do before you start it up and head out on the highway. Whether that’s putting the windshield wiper blades back on, taking the bit of steel wool out of the tailpipe, or reconnecting the battery, it’ll help you remember what steps need to be taken before you’re ready to hit the road. If your ride has been in vehicle storage in Oklahoma for a long time, it’s probably also a good idea to take it to your mechanic for a tune-up right away.
As long as you pay your bill, we’re happy to keep your vehicle in our auto storage facilities!
The answer varies from vehicle to vehicle, but if you think that it’s required, the option is certainly available! And if your vehicle is small enough to fit in a climate controlled unit, it’s often a good idea for helping to preserve your ride.
Security features vary by facility, but at Storage ‘R’ Us in Oklahoma the safety and security of all your belongings is one of our top priorities. That’s why all of our facilities boast fenced and walled perimeters with 24/7 digital video monitoring, gated access, and other security features to help protect everything on the premises, whether it’s in auto storage or a regular self storage unit. That said, even we can’t protect against natural disasters such as tornados, so it’s always a good idea to have insurance on anything particularly valuable that you might have in vehicle storage in Oklahoma.
Vehicle storage in Oklahoma is usually a secure and safe place to keep a vehicle that was probably a big investment. But, like with any big investment, things can happen, no matter how good the security. All the fences, walls, and cameras in the world won’t stop a tornado. That’s why it’s a good idea to take out additional insurance on any high-value items that you keep in self storage, whether that’s your grandmother’s antiques or your RV. While Oklahoma state law prohibits storage facilities from insuring the items that are stored on our premises, our helpful self storage staff can certainly offer advice on the best ways to find insurance to cover your auto storage.
Whatever kind of vehicle you’re looking to store, and whatever your reasons for storing it, there are plenty of options for vehicle storage in Oklahoma available from Storage ‘R’ Us. With locations offering vehicle storage in Lawton on East Gore Blvd and Rogers Lane, not to mention locations in Moore and Duncan, as well as covered and enclosed RV, boat, and vehicle storage in Newcastle, we’ve got your auto storage needs covered wherever you are.
We may not think about it very often, but moving anxiety is a very real thing. After all, moving to a new home, a new town, maybe even a new state is a big change, and big changes can be exciting, but they can also produce a lot of stress. The average American moves 11 times in the course of their life, but if you or a family member are a part of the United States military, that number may be considerably higher.
According to professionals who study job and family stress, the various changes and logistical hurdles that come with moving invariably create a certain amount of anxiety. Fortunately, there are lots of things that you can do to help reduce stress and make your next move as easy as possible on you and your family.
A lot goes into a successful move, so it can help to have a plan before you get started. And of course, the foundation of any good plan is understanding how much time things are going to take. So, if you have a move coming up, it’s time to sit down with your calendar, figure out when you need to start preparing, and mark out all the big events that are related to the move, such as renting the truck, buying moving supplies, renting a self storage facility for anything that won’t fit in your new place, and so on.
When actually making your family plan, remember that everyone in the family has a job to do. The kids can clean out their closets and toy chests to find items they no longer want or use that can be donated. One person can be in charge of renting a moving truck, while someone else is packing and staging boxes. And of course, don’t forget to reach out to friends and extended family members who can help you out on moving day. As you make your plan, write everything down and keep it all together in a folder or filled out on your calendar. There are even time-saving apps that you can download that will help you plan your move and schedule everything accordingly.
One way to make a move easier on yourself and your family is to simply move less stuff. Getting rid of items that you no longer want, need, or use is a good way to eliminate excess stress anyway—experts have found strong correlations between clutter and stress—and there’s no better time to de-clutter than right before a big move. Sort through everything you’ve got in the attic, the basement, the garage, or anyplace else that’s out of the way, and find anything that you don’t want to take with you to your new place. You can have a garage sale, or simply donate the stuff that you no longer want to Goodwill or some other thrift store. If you’ve still got stuff that you can’t bear to part with, but that there isn’t room for in your new place, self storage in Oklahoma can help you stay de-cluttered, even after your move.
When we think about moving, we often focus on the big stuff like furniture and appliances, but the fact is that we have a lot more little stuff, and to move all of that stuff, you’ll probably need some good packing and moving supplies. That starts with boxes, but it doesn’t end there. Think packing tape, bubble wrap, and lots more. You may want a utility knife, especially to help break the boxes down when the move is done, and you’ll definitely want a few markers so you can write on the boxes. (Write which room the boxes are destined for, and also a quick summary of their contents so that things are easy to find once you get where you’re going.)
Fortunately, you can find all of these moving supplies and lots more at your local Oklahoma self storage facility, where helpful self storage specialists will also be able to answer any questions you may have and provide you with tips to help your move go smoother.
We’ve all experienced the move where we invited over every friend and family member we know who has a pickup truck, SUV, or trailer and piled it high with all our stuff. It’s a pain to coordinate all those vehicles, and nothing ever fits quite right. While there’s certainly something to be said for having all those extra hands to help—feel free to invite everyone over still, just treat them to the traditional pizza afterward—it will actually take a lot of the stress out of your move if you rent a single truck to haul everything.
Not only will all your stuff be together, and you’ll only have one vehicle to coordinate, but you’ll also find that everything just fits better in a truck that was specifically designed for just this situation. Fortunately, Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton and across southwest Oklahoma is one of the largest PENSKE truck rental representatives in the state, so you can reserve your rental truck at the same time that you pick up moving supplies or pick out a self storage unit.
When you move, you may often find that not everything fits in the new house. Maybe you’re downsizing, or maybe you just want to reduce clutter and free up some space for a new hobby or an old one that you’ve been neglecting too long. Maybe you want to finally have the space to park the car in the garage. Whatever the reason, if you have treasured belongings that just don’t quite fit in your new home, climate-controlled self storage is the perfect solution to keep everything accessible and in good shape, while also keeping it out of the way.
Climate-controlled self storage is perfect for more fragile items that may be damaged by changes in heat, cold, or humidity. Talk to your self storage professional about the best ways to store your belongings, and if you’re storing something that’s particularly valuable to you, it’s always a good idea to ask about insurance. Self storage facilities take the security of your belongings very seriously, but even they can’t protect against events like tornadoes, floods, or other natural disasters.
Just as you may find yourself longing to de-clutter when you move, you may also get to your home and find that there’s just not a space for your project car, your boat, or your RV. Some homeowners’ associations actually have rules governing what kinds of vehicles can be parked where. So, if you find that you can no longer store your boat or RV in the back yard, it’s time to think specialty vehicle storage at Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton. You can find covered and uncovered vehicle self storage in Lawton and across Oklahoma, so talk to your self storage specialist about what type of vehicle storage is right for you. It’s also a good idea to ask for tips and tricks if you’re planning to store vehicles for the long haul. We’ve got a few suggestions.
Whether you’re planning a move because of work, family, or a military change of station, Storage ‘R’ Us has seven locations across Oklahoma offering everything from military self-storage to specialty vehicle storage to moving supplies and lots more. Visit us in Lawton, Newcastle, Duncan, Moore, or Chickasha, OK and let us help you get ready for your next move, wherever you may be headed!

Both individuals and businesses alike use vehicle storage in Lawton for vehicles they need to keep safe and secure but don’t necessarily use every day. For some shade-tree mechanics or would-be gearheads, it’s a place to keep a project car that they’re tinkering with. Others use auto self-storage in Lawton to store vehicles while they’re away at college, studying abroad, or deployed overseas. RV storage in Lawton stores RVs, boats, and other specialty vehicles so they’re out of the way during the off-season but easy to get to when their owners need them. Many businesses use vehicle storage as a secure place to keep work trucks, lawnmowers, and other equipment when it’s not in use.
Let’s face it, space comes at a premium. Even if you have a garage that’s big enough for every vehicle your family owns, chances are some of that space is taken up with other stuff. If you’ve got a boat, an RV, a four-wheeler, jet skis, or any other vehicle that you don’t use every day, it’s probably taking up space in your driveway or backyard even as you read this, right? You could find yourself getting into conflicts with homeowners’ associations, which often prohibit parking vehicles such as boats and RVs in driveways for long periods of time.
Plus, if you have a particularly nice car or motorcycle—say, something classic that you only take out on weekends or that you’ve been fixing up in your spare time—you may want to keep it someplace a little more secure than just your front drive. Auto storage in Lawton could be the answer you’re looking for.
Oklahoma isn’t exactly known for its steady climate. We get storms, hail, snow, high winds, you name it. That can do a number on a vehicle, especially if you’ve got a classic car or truck that you don’t drive that often. You could always tarp it and keep it in the garage, but then you’re running into that space issue again. And a tarp in the driveway only does so much to protect your beloved GTO from the weather and even less to protect it from critters and people who might happen by.
Fortunately, vehicle storage in Lawton is secure and can help to protect your car, truck, motorcycle, or any other vehicle from the elements. Depending on the size of the vehicle you want to store, you can choose between covered or uncovered parking and even drive-in vehicle storage. There are solutions for just about any need!
Auto self-storage in Lawton protects your vehicle from more than the weather. Vehicle storage from Storage ‘R’ Us provides multiple layers of security for all of your belongings, from on-site managers and gated access to security cameras with 24-hour digital video, fenced and walled perimeters, and security lighting. When you park your car, truck, RV, or other vehicle at Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton, you’ll know that it’s as secure as we can make it, but you’ll also know that you can get to it whenever you need it, day or night.
Some of the most commonly stored vehicles are boats and RVs. After all, you probably don’t take your boat out on the lake every day, and boats and RVs are typically seasonal vehicles that you only use for part of the year. The rest of the time they can take up space in your driveway or yard, or you can store them safely and securely at Storage ‘R’ Us!
We offer a choice of covered or uncovered boat and RV storage in Lawton, with plenty of room to move your specialty vehicles in and out whenever you need them. Some of our locations may offer more options than others, so be sure to check with an auto storage specialist at the location you’re considering.
When you bring your vehicle to auto self-storage in Lawton, we do everything in our power to keep it safe, whether that’s from the ravages of weather, time, pests, or people. But there are still things that you need to do to help keep your vehicle in tip-top shape while it’s in storage. For starters, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with a few simple ways to keep critters out of your exhaust pipe or other parts of your car, truck, RV, or boat.
If you want your vehicle to be ready to go whenever you come pick it up, you’ll need to keep it maintained while it’s in storage, and that includes cleaning it, changing the oil and other fluids, and topping off the tank before you bring it in. If you’re unsure of what to do before you bring in your vehicle, let your mechanic know that you’re planning to put it into vehicle storage in Lawton and ask them what they recommend. You can also check out our list of some ways to make the most of auto self-storage in Lawton!
Whatever kind of vehicle you need to store, for whatever reason you need to store it, you can find a variety of RV, boat, and specialty vehicle storage in Lawton at our Rogers Lane and East Gore Blvd locations. The Lawton Cache Road location offers drive-up access to exterior self-storage units, and, of course, all our locations offer a wide range of self-storage options for every need, from climate-controlled self-storage to packing and moving supplies. Come see what we have to offer at Storage ‘R’ Us!
Every home owners’ association is different, but one thing that most of them have in common is that they impose a lot of rules. Sometimes those rules are about what color you can paint your house, or what you can do with your landscaping; other times they’re about what you can keep in your driveway or even your backyard.
Many HOAs won’t let you keep vehicles parked in the driveway or backyard for long periods of time—that can include boats, trailers, RVs, and project cars under tarps. Some have rules against any vehicles that aren’t tagged or licensed, or against things like four wheelers, campers, or snowmobiles.
HOA rules don’t end with vehicles, either. Many home owners’ associations won’t allow you to keep those big, competition-style barbecue pits in your driveway or yard—no matter how many cookouts you host—while others may have rules against having freestanding toolsheds in the backyard, or even things like trampolines, jungle gyms, or backyard playsets for the kids. Before you put up any structure on your property, it’s probably a good idea to check with your HOA and see what the rules are in your neighborhood, and if you’re moving to a new place, it’s a good idea to check the HOA bylaws before you move in to see what’s allowed and what isn’t.
Fortunately, whatever you need to park in your driveway or yard that your HOA won’t allow, there’s a solution waiting for you at Storage ‘R’ Us. We’ve got spots available for specialty vehicle storage of all kinds at all of our locations, from RV storage and boat storage to covered storage for that project car that you’ve been tinkering with.
So if you’ve got seasonal vehicles like boats and RVs, jet skis, or simply cars that you don’t drive very often, we’ve got a place for them in vehicle storage in Oklahoma at Storage ‘R’ Us! Whether you’re already living in a pretty strict HOA but really want to pick up a shiny new RV for when you hit the road this summer, or if you’ve just recently moved to a new home and found out that they won’t let you park your fishing boat in the driveway anymore, you can bring them down to Storage ‘R’ Us and give them a home away from home in our RV and boat storage.
More than just vehicle storage, Storage ‘R’ Us is a great destination for anything that your HOA won’t let you keep in the driveway or the yard. Need someplace to store the tools that would have gone in that toolshed? We’ve got just the place! Still want to hang onto that trampoline or backyard playset but can’t put it out where you currently live? It can stay with us for a while. We’re also a great place to store holiday decorations and other seasonal items that take up space in the basement, attic, or garage during the part of the year when they’re not in use.
So, whether you need vehicle storage solutions for a boat, RV, or project car, or just need someplace to keep things so they’re out of the way, Storage ‘R’ Us has got the solution for you!
Cars are meant to be driven, not to sit in a garage gathering dust. But the fact of the matter is that many of us have a strong attachment to cars that aren’t always practical to drive every day. Maybe it was our first car, or the car that we spent months and years dreaming about when we were teenagers. Maybe it was a ’92 Mazda RX-7 that we bought with money from our first job, or that beautiful Chevy Corvette ZR-1 that we were finally able to afford after we got that promotion. Whatever it is, we can’t always bear to put our favorite car out to pasture, even when the logistics of families and commutes require us to upgrade to an SUV or something that gets better gas mileage.
Our cars have long been a part of the American identity, and for many of us our ride says something about who we are. So even if we drive something economical or passenger-friendly every day during the week, we may still want to get our old ride out of storage on the weekend to go for an extended cruise and relive the memories of our glory days, or drive it to our 20th high school reunion and show everyone that we’ve still got it. We may even want to pass it down to one of our kids when they reach driving age.
You might not want to part with a treasured car just because you’ve picked up something new, but there isn’t always space to keep it in the garage or parked in the driveway. Luckily, you have a lot of options when it comes to auto storage in Oklahoma. Self-storage facilities that offer vehicle storage can help keep your favorite car safe and sound—and out of the way—until you’re ready to get it back on the road.
Just because you don’t drive it very often these days doesn’t mean that old car doesn’t still need some TLC, though. You’ll want to start it up and keep it maintained, even come take it out for a spin every so often, in order to ensure that it stays in great shape. We’ve got some suggestions to help prepare your ride for long-term vehicle storage in Lawton, not to mention some tips on how to make sure your car (or boat or RV) doesn’t get any unwanted visitors while it’s in auto storage in Oklahoma.
At Storage ‘R’ Us, the safety of your vehicles and other belongings are our top priority, but even we can’t protect against everything that mother nature can throw our way. So whether you’ve got a beloved car that you just can’t bear to part with, or just need to free up some space in the garage, we’ve got you covered at Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton!
Santa must be a pretty hard-working guy to get presents to all the good little boys and girls on Christmas every year. But what do you think he does with his sleigh during the off-season? After all, during the holiday season he puts a lot of miles on it in just one night, so chances are he wants to park it someplace safe when it’s not in use so that none of the elves take it out for a joyride.
And being a wise old elf himself, Santa Claus would know that Oklahoma self-storage is a great, central location to park his sleigh during the other 364 days of the year. Why wouldn’t he just park it at the North Pole? Well, there are lots of reasons. The cold weather up there probably isn’t great for the sleigh’s vintage Venetian Red finish, and there likely aren’t very many mechanics at the North Pole. (The elves are all busy making toys, after all, and probably don’t have time to take off to do sleigh maintenance.)
There are other benefits to Santa Claus taking advantage of vehicle storage in Lawton to keep his sleigh safe and sound until he needs it again on Christmas Eve. He may need to get easy access to it at other times during the rest of the year—such as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, for one—and so the year-round, 24/7 access that he’d enjoy with self-storage in Lawton makes his sleigh available whenever he needs it, without a lot of fuss or hassle. He can even give the elves access if they need to borrow it for some reason!
Vehicle storage in Lawton also boasts a wide range of great security features that help keep Santa’s sleigh safe and sound for the big day. After all, he wouldn’t want anybody sneaking a peek into the back before he was ready to go, right? If he were to store the sleigh at Storage ‘R’ Us, he’d have the benefit of our fenced and walled perimeters, not to mention gated access and 24/7 digital video security.
We’re not necessarily saying that Santa parks his sleigh at Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton during the off season—after all, we can’t divulge the identities of our clients or what they’ve got in storage—but we can say is that you’re welcome to take advantage of our great vehicle storage in Lawton for all your cars, trucks, work vehicles, boats, RVs, and, yeah, even reindeer-driven sleighs. (You’ll have to stable the reindeer someplace else, though. Sorry.)
Vehicle storage in Lawton is safe, convenient, and affordable, and you’ll have access to your vehicle whenever you need it. Even if that’s just for one very quick trip around the world one night a year…
So if you want to keep your boat, truck, RV, car, or other vehicle safely stored when you’re not using it to traverse the globe, just give Storage ‘R’ Us a call and let us find the vehicle storage solution that’s perfect for you this holiday season!
