Wisconsin goats, lend me a hand

Anyone aware of a good car storage center for the winter months we will be having? I am trying to get everything set for storage and want to plan ahead. Also what is a decent car cover for indoor storage only, i have seen prices ranging from $50 to $500?

I actually store mine at my grandmothers I don't have a garage where I am.

Storage is going to be pretty outrageous in the immediate vicinity of Killwaukee, I'd suggest coming north my way if you want something under $80/month. I never bother with a cover, but then I don't have any chance of serious dust or pigeon s**t either.

Good that you're planning ahead, I hear they fill up quick.

Looks like I get to do the same now... apparently she's moving into assisted living.

one of the BCM sponsors is a storage facility in waukesha, rates aren't terrible I don't think. I'm just sticking mine in my garage, assuming I have a beater by then.

lol, the BCM forums... Not a shot against you, but I can't decide which is worse, them or LS1GTO...

There's a storage unit accross the street from me that I called and amazingly a 10x20 is only $63/month. I figured I wouldn't call them right away because I thought the rates would be high but I'm glad I did.

I don't affiliate myself with any given forum and try to avoid the negative associations that seem to come with any given one, but I hear what you're saying.

That's why I stuck with this one. One of the best online car communities I've seen so far.

Thanks man. I might have her nailed down though. Place across the street has an opening as of yet, so I might jump on it this week even. I've got some other junk that could go in there too, like the bike and a go-kart.

If they get another opening, I'll let you know. Price seems pretty good.
