Types of Car Storage2nd February 2021
Dehumidified car storage is just one of the types of vehicle storage that we, at Storacar
offer to customers looking to keep their car safely stored any time of the year.
But what is dehumified storage? Why should you consider it when storing a car? And what is the cost of dehumified car storage?
Dehumidified Car Storage - The Basics
Whether the weather is warm or cold, there is always moisture in the air. This can cause dampness to bodywork which can have some unsightly effects. Interiors of vehicles can be superficially damaged by damp and mechanical components can also be affected. For example, damp can cause damage to rubber hoses or any other perishables on your vehicles.
Storacar Dehumidified Storage removes moisture from the air which means we can protect your car even more from the environment.
The right temperature
Much like humans, cars are not big fans of the cold. Storing your car in somewhere which feels like the Arctic will only cause damage to your car - metals, components that are perishable and your, lovingly cared for, interior furnishings will also be at risk of contracting. Plus it can speed up the aging process. Nobody wants to age too fast!
When the air is cold it can reach a thing called the 'dew point.' That's when the air is so full of moisture that it causes condensation. Which is the beast that ends up doing all the damage to your prized possession, including chance of corrosion!
Now here is the trick. You would think to combat cold that you would simply turn up the thermometer to warm things up. However, warm air is particularly good at carrying moisture. Which means, in turn, potentially more moisture.br />
How much humidity is good?
That is a good question and one which has no right or wrong answer. Too humid or not too humid maybe the question, so what is the answer?
Let's start high humidity shall we? High humidity can bring moisture to the vehicle which nobody wants. So do you bring the humidity right down? Not really no!
Drying out the air more than needed can cause issues with woodwork, leather and plastics throughout the vehicle. We want your vehicles returned to you in good shape and not with cracked leather or a dashboard split open!
At Storacar we are experts in finding the right environment for your vehicle. Which is why we offer a Dehumidified Car Storage option.
How Much Is Dehumidified Car Storage?
The first question you need to ask is how much would it cost to repair interior leather, your dashboard or any plastic pipes that can be damaged by humidity?
Storacar Dehumidified Car Storage
starts from just £39.12 per week. We think this is a small price to pay for the protection of your prized vehicle.
