Car Storage

When you leave for summer break , or over the winter break, or go abroad or take a semester off, CSS can help you out with car storage. Leaving your car outside on a city street or in a parking lot exposed to the elements isnt always the best  or safest option for your vehicle. Let CSS help!  Learn how you can leave the worry behind and take advantage of car storage with College Student Storage.

Vehicle Pickup

We make semester storage, short-term and long-term vehicle storage easy by picking up your car at your address. You can even store boxes and other items in your car, as long as we can safely navigate the car on the road. When you return back to school we'll deliver the car to your new address during your school's delivery time frame.

Climate Controlled Car Storage

Once your vehicle is on-site, it stays in a climate controlled storage facility. The indoor temperature ranges from the mid-60s in the summer to the mid-40s in the winter, so you don't have to worry about your car enduring extreme temperatures. We also disconnect the battery for the entire duration of the storage period.

Vehicle Insurance and coverage

All students who store vehicles with CSS need to keep there insurance on their vehicle. We do not cover any damages that may arise during pick up or delivery from weather events, such as hail or rain. This is outside our control. We do not cover items missing, lost or damaged in the vehicle. The student is respsonsable. The student left the items in the vehicle or packed it full of there stuff, we did not. We also have no inventory of these items and there for no proof the exsisted or what they were to begin with. If you want items in the vehicle covered, ALL of them need to be written down on the inventory sheet during pick up.

Do you need a vehicle driven out of state?

Some students and parents want their vehicles driven to their home state outside Colorado. We can do this for you. We will drive your vehicle and deliver it to where ever you live. The cost on this is between $500-$1000 for the driver, plus reimbursement for expenses like food, gas and if needed a hotel rooms. Plus the cost of a one way airline ticket for the driver back to Colorado. This services is based on availability. Please call or email us if interested. 

Secure Storage Facilities

Our storage facilities are more than just comfortable. The warehouse has a motion and camera alarm system, security gate, and an employee is on premises during the day, every day, throughout the year. This services is available to all of the schools we serve including:

 

We make it easy to bundle your car storage with our other CSS services like moving and storage, shipping, and hauling. At the end of our car storage contract, your vehicle will be delivered to the address you provide.

Car Storage Pricing:

Although summer break is the most popular for our car storage services, we find that students who study abroad, take a semester off, or want their car stored over winter break find great use with this service as well.  CSS provides storage during the following periods and semesters (prices vary per semester):

  • Summer storage-(May- August ~ 4 months)- $1135
  • Spring semester-( January- May ~ 5 months) - $1285
  • Fall semester- (August-January ~ 5 months) - $1285
  • 1 month car storage- $335
  • 1 year car storage - $2600

Many students pack their car full of their items. This is fine. We can deliver boxes and tape to you ahead of time as well if you need them. You can fill your vehicle with all your  boxes ans items, they will be safe. We ask to please save us room to drive it though to and from the warehouse. Your car is stored in dorrs in a safe and alarmed warehouse that was just built in 2014. The property also has a security gate on it. Someone is on site 5-6 days a week as well.

With our CSS vehicle storage service, if you have other items that you need stored that will not fit into your vehicle (like furniture, bikes, skis, snowboards, futons, etc..) You automatically get $100 off your other storage when storing a vehicle with CSS (per semester)

Stored vehicles must have insurance in full force. Your insurance is your only recourse for compensation for any and all types of damages, loss, or vandalism. We do carry a garge keepers insurance policy for driving vehicles to and from your address on pick ups and deliveries in case of any incident.

Car Batteries: All car batteries will be disconnected at time of storage. This is to save the life of the battery. To many new vehicles have numerous power draws on the battery even when they are being stored. The battery will be connected back up upon delivery. If your car has a special code when the battery is turned back on, you need to give it to us at time of pick up. If your battery is dead when we re-hook it up to your vehicle, we will charge it. If it does not hold a charge and is dead, we are not responsible. We can easily order you a new battery and have it installed for you at cost.

Car Storage insurance: 

We do not offer insurance on stored vehicles. The customer is responsible for carrying insurance on them.
