When deciding on a long term parking facility, keep in mind that price is not the only element to consider.

Always check the feedback left by customers so you know exactly what to expect before you entrust your vehicle to an unknown facility.

Long Term Parking Tips
- Note your parking space location. Take a photo of the parking space number and/or location of your car so that you remember where you parked when you return. After a long vacation, you may find it hard to remember where you left your car!
- Never leave valuables in your car. The best way to protect your vehicle against theft is to remove all items of value. This includes essential documents, extra keys, and electronic devices.
- Arrive early for your flight. This way, you have plenty of time to clean out your car, secure everything, and gather your luggage so you don't forget anything.
- Inspect your vehicle when you return. Always double-check your vehicle for scratches, dents, or missing items so that you can address it with the parking staff immediately before you leave the lot.
