Winter can be a harsh time of the year for any vehicle, but when you have a shiny new sports car, you definitely want to shelter it from winter’s worst. Fortunately, you can protect your prized possession from the ice and snow with these helpful sports car storage tips for winter.
Step #1: Complete routine maintenance
It could be quite some time before you’re behind the wheel of your sports car if you’re storing it for winter, so be sure to complete routine maintenance like an oil change before you store it away for months on end.
Step #2: Find a place to store your vehicle
This step is usually pretty easy if you have a garage or shed, but can be harder if you only have a driveway. If the latter scenario applies to you, try to place it in a spot where it will be most protected from ice and snow, but don’t place it under a tree, as ice can cause tree limbs to fall right onto your car.
Step #3: Raise your sports car with jacks
The last thing you want to encounter after storing your sports car all winter is flat tires. Prevent this by raising the vehicle off the ground using jacks.
Step #4: Block any openings
Little rodents and birds might be looking for warm places to rest during winter, and the various openings on your sports car can make for a desirable venue. Prevent them from entering these spaces by blocking them during winter.
