Let’s play word association: if we say “car storage unit,” what’s the first word which comes to your mind?


That is, unfortunately, the general impression regarding car storage, that it is a service only the rich can afford.

And to that we say hogwash!  We are Mouser Self Storage, serving South Fort Worth, Alvarado, and Johnson County with excellent and affordable self storage solutions. Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information.

A traditional car storage unit.

Let’s talk about the reasons why someone would store their vehicle at a traditional vehicle storage space. The first reason would be security.  If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, you certainly do not want to keep your car in your garage or in your driveway.  Doing so would be like a neon, flashing sign which says “please steal me.”

The second reason for car storage is to protect it from the elements.  Rain, hail, ice, excessive heat, all of these things are enemies for the exterior of a vehicle.

The third reason would be to have maintenance performed on your car while you are gone, simple maintenance like keeping the tired inflated, periodically starting your car to keep the engine running properly, and perhaps periodic car washing.

For these services you can expect to pay $300 or more per month, meaning it is cost prohibitive for the average worker in America.

Mouser’s car storage solution.

Mouser raises this question: why not park your car in one of our car storage units?  Security is our middle name with the four levels of security:

  1. Perimeter fencing
  2. Individualized, computerized access card keys.
  3. Video monitoring 24/7
  4. On-site management.

Your vehicle will certainly be protected from Mother Nature with indoor storage units.  Which leaves only on-site maintenance as the only service we do not offer to our customers.

Our car storage can be as low as $100 per month, considerably less than a designated car storage facility.

Which is better? An honest appraisal.

And that, then, leads us to the question, which is better?

If you have the money, and you are going to be gone for months, it is our professional opinion that a car facility like Fort Worth Car Storage is your best option.  However, if you are in the lower, say, 75% of Americans, sometimes barely getting by, almost always concerned with finances, then Mouser Self Storage is the option which makes the most sense, especially if you only need to store your vehicle for a month or two.  And, if you are going to be gone for longer than that, you can always have a relative or close friend stop by and perform the maintenance tasks for you.
