Our Car Storage Location and Services
Our transport service is available in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, DC., and portions of North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and W.Virginia, but we store cars from all over the country.
Atlantic Auto Storage provides long-term (4 month minimum), inside, car storage. Our customers are military personnel, state department personnel, embassy staff, World Bank employees, and classic car owners, just to name a few. If you are not in our transport service area but want to store your car with us you can contract with a nationwide auto transport company to bring your car to us.
Our inside, secure car storage Virginia warehouses are located in central Virginia in the small town of ARRINGTON (NOT Arlington) in Nelson County, famous as the home of "Walton's Mountain" from the television show. With only one stoplight in the whole county there are more wineries and breweries than stop lights. Car storage like eggs, is cheaper in the country. If you feel like a little drive in the country you can also bring your car to us. Our customers largely come from Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Washington, DC., and portions of West Virginia, Pennsylvania & North Carolina. Customers in these areas can have their car picked up for storage and delivered back when storage is no longer required.
We have over 20,000 square feet of warehouse space to keep your car protected storage, safe from rain, snow, hail, ice, sun, theft or tampering, bird flyovers, or other potential damage. We'll keep your car safe and in running condition for the winter, or while you're overseas. Whether you just need more space in your own garage, or you need someone to look after your automobile long-term until you return from assignment. Our warehouse security camera system lets us know via text or e-mail 24/7 if anything is amiss.

How We Store Your Car
Cars are stored locked and indoors in our secure warehouse and are kept in running condition. Every thirty days fluid levels are checked and your car is started and run for at least 15 minutes. (This does not guarantee your battery will not need to be replaced before pickup-but it helps. We will attempt to charge your battery first. When we receive your delivery request, we will let you know then if a battery will be needed and a cost will be given for your approval.) During this time all doors will be opened and the car is given a chance to “air out”, this lessens the likelihood of the car having a musty “been in storage“ odor at the end of the storage period. The car is moved within the warehouse to lessen the possibility that the tires will develop “flat spots”, and to help keep seals moist and the bearings and gears lubricated. While the car is running the air conditioner and the heater are turned on. If at any time car will not start or has other problems, you will be notified. Before we deliver your car back to you we will make sure it's freshly washed and vacuumed.
What We Do When We Accept your Car for Storage
- Inspect the car inside and out noting any imperfections.
- Make a copy of your proof of ownership (copy of title and/or registration).
- Make a copy of your ID.
