My plan is to also store the car for winter. Any tips on storage steps? Do you have seasonal insurance or do you cancel and renew in the spring? Thanks.
 
I leave comprehensive and fire and theft on my cars when stored for the winter. House insurance wont cover the car if garage burnt or any thing. Better to be safe than sorry.

I think this is pretty sound advice, that is what I leave on my car when it is in storage.

Nice garage you got sneaky toot. It won't be all that long will it?? :rofl:
 
My insurance is with TD Meloche, and with them I call them when it goes into storage, keep paying the full rate, then when I take it out of storage I call them and then I get a credit for the difference between the full coverage and if it had been just comprehensive / fire & theft only. This keeps the full new vehicle replacement in place.
 
146 days ,see how quickly the time is going .:D

haha, and in Edmonton the two week looks decent for temps that any snow won't stay.

Nov 19th high of +1 and a low of -3 .... these temps could shorten winter another month.

and March 20th is the first day of spring..... wahoo - makes spring 4 months away only

hoping....

Some I have read are concerned about winter storage and mice getting in the exhaust system. Suggestion on other forums is to use steel wool to block the exhaust. I found beer cans fit nicely, they are aluminum so won't be an issue as steel wool can rust if there is any moisture. My winter cover nicely holds the beer cans in place so the little critters can't work their way into the exhaust. If you didn't have a cover probably could find something else that would hold them tight. The exhaust narrows once inside the tips so the cans close it off completely.

Winter storage

What I did was downy sheets in engine bay and interior, in the exhaust steel wool wrapped with downy sheets to keep out moisture, than applied battery tender, then car cover dust proof cover also car sits on 1/2 foam pad with tires pumped up to 45psi, garage heated to 40F.
