L. Leclair

“For several years now, I have trusted PODS for the safe winter storage of my baby (my Corvette Z06).”

N. Jacobsen

“As the owner of a convertible Porshe Carrera, winter storage for my car is handled by PODS. Year after year, storage is carried out by a professional and attentive team who places the car in an individual container protected from any external elements that could damage the car. This is why it is with confidence and peace of mind that I entrust my car year after year to PODS to store my car.”

Frequently asked questions

Which PODS Storage Centre locations offer winter car storage?

Participating locations include Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.

What is the maximum length of car PODS can store?

We can store cars with a length of up to 15.2 ft. (4.63 m).

What are the payment options?

Monthly payments are conveniently automatically charged to your credit card on file.

What is the minimum duration of storage?

Winter car storage is available starting in September. The minimum storage duration is 4 months.

Can I continue to store my car after the winter season?

Customers who store their car with PODS past April 30 will be charged our regular monthly rental rate beginning May 1.

Will I need to sign a standard PODS rental agreement?

A specific car storage contract will be used instead of the standard PODS rental agreement, and you’ll sign this contract when you bring your car in for storage. A PDF version of the contract can be emailed in advance should you wish to review it ahead of time.

Can I access my vehicle during the storage period?

Vehicles must be stored for the whole period of time, so you won’t be able to access your car or take it out and bring it back.

Can I connect my battery charger?

Battery chargers are not permitted; however, the battery can be disconnected for the storage duration. If the vehicle doesn’t start when you come to pick it up, we’ll give it a boost.

Does PODS deliver the container at my place to store the vehicle?

PODS does not deliver a container to store your vehicle at home. You’ll need to bring your car to our Storage Center so it can be placed inside your container.

How is the car secured inside the container?

We never drive the container around with the car inside, so it isn’t necessary to attach the vehicle to the container. Transmission is placed in park or first gear, and the parking brake is applied.

Where is the container with the car stored?

The container with the car is always stored inside our secure and heated Storage Centre. Your container will be moved and stacked with our high-capacity forklift.

Do I need to empty the fuel tank?

It’s not necessary to empty the fuel tank.

Does PODS provide insurance for the car during the storage period?

As PODS is not an insurer, we will not be providing insurance coverage for the stored vehicle. It is recommended that you, at all times during the term of this agreement, maintain in full force and effect a standard auto insurance policy, including third-party liability coverage, statutory accident benefits coverage, direct compensation property damage coverage, and uninsured automobile coverage.

What can't I load in a Container?

Hazardous Materials such as toxic chemicals, gas, liquids, substance, material or waste, lawn mowers, motorized vehicles and illegal items cannot be placed in a PODS Container. 
We also recommend that heirlooms, irreplaceable artifacts, deeds, legal notices, forms of currency and items that are not your personal property are not placed in the Container. Refer to your rental agreement for additional restrictions on what cannot be stored in the Container.


What type of lock should I use?

We recommend a 2 ¾” (70mm) Disc Lock or a 1 ¾” Padlock. Locks can be purchased from PODS or at your local home improvement store.
