I hope that by the end of this calendar year, I will have purchased an extra car for fun (and it's not a 993). We have a two-car garage but parking a third car, any car, on the street is not a good idea due to a recent spate of car burglaries in our neighborhood.
My criteria: It has to be very secure (gated, cameras, no access by anyone else but me). Ideally, it would have room for two cars plus a bunch of bankers boxes (for files). I'm not going to work on the car, but a little extra room to move around inside would be nice. And finally, lighting and ventilation would be appreciated.
Below are my options. What do you all think?
1. Someone's garage. My concern with this is that other people in adjoining rooms/buildings may have access to my stuff. If I am keeping files, it needs to be secure and inaccessible.
2. Proper storage room. This might be the best bet.
3. Warehouse. This would obviously be for storing the car only. I'd have to store my files elsewhere.
4. Shipping container. This is relatively inexpensive, but how water/moisture proof are these things? I don't want a moldy car or soaked documents.
Have I missed something? Are there other pros and cons I'm not thinking of?
