How to Store a Classic Car at Home

Some owners of classic cars like to have their cars stored by a professional. In many cases, however, those services aren’t locally available or are too costly to consider. It can also be nice to have frequent access to your classic car while it’s stored, in case you want to do some work on it from time to time or simply to know that your valuable investment is safe in your own garage.

No matter your reasons for storing your classic car at home in your garage, our team here at North American Auto Equipment has some advice. We've spent years becoming an online leader in auto body garage equipment and provide many individuals and collectors with the auto lifts they need to securely store their classic collectible cars for extended periods. From low-rise lifts that get your classic off the ground to 4-post lifts that raise your vehicle up to give room for another vehicle or storage underneath, we have the storage lifts for classic cars that you’re looking for.

Auto Lifts for Classic Cars

If you have the space under the ceiling in your garage, the best place for your classic car is up. Leaving a stored car on the ground is begging for a door ding or other damage from movement in the garage — other vehicles, bicycles, shovels, you name it! You may also be tempted to pile objects on your car, which can cause damage even through a cover.

To ensure your classic car looks as good on the day you pull it out as it did when it went into storage, consider installing a car lift for classic cars in your garage. You’ll just need to verify a few points before you order your lift , including:

  • Floor space: We give dimensions of all of our lifts right here on our site. We can also tell you how much space you need to the sides, front and back to ensure it fits properly and allows you to move around it.
  • Ceiling height: You need to consider the height of the lift itself, if it is a 4-post lift, as well as the overall lift + vehicle height with your classic car raised to the maximum position.
  • Power source: Don’t forget that you will need to power your lift. Read up on the technical specifications before ordering and ensure you have a power source close by to wire in your auto lift.

Make a note of all of these points and then browse our online catalog. You'll quickly see why we're one of the most popular sources for auto body equipment and lifts! We have a wide variety of options for home garage storage lifts for classic cars.
