Vehicle Storage

Do you have an exciting trip planned, taking you away from home for an extended period of time? Do you have a classic car that you rarely drive? Or have you run out of room in your garage? Knauz Continental Autos is delighted to announce that we are now offering luxury and vintage vehicle storage to meet all of your needs. Your vehicle will be safe and secure in our vehicle storage near Chicago. Finding the right vehicle storage can be daunting and time-consuming, but our caring staff at your local Mercedes-Benz dealership will make it simple and stress-free. 

Our vehicle storage near Chicago is one of the very best and is located only minutes away from Knauz Continental Autos. We are able to store more than 150 vehicles in a secure and climate-controlled facility, which also features a fire protection system with sprinklers. Choosing Knauz Continental Autos for your luxury vehicle storage needs means having complete peace of mind knowing that your vehicle will be treated with the utmost care. 


How we prepare your vehicle for storage:

1. Complete vehicle inspection by our trained staff. Please allow 30 minutes for vehicle check-in.

2. Wash your vehicle's exterior and vacuum the interior.

3. Raise your tire pressure to help prevent flat spots.

4. Add fuel-stabilizing additives to your full fuel tank to prevent the gas from oxidizing and deteriorating. You must fill your tank prior to dropping off; an empty or low fuel tank can rust internally as moisture accumulates.

What type of vehicles can be stored at our facility? The majority of the cars stored at our facility are antique cars, classic cars, exotic cars, and other collectible investment vehicles. We provide enclosed, climate-controlled, secure storage for a variety of vehicles.


Prior to leaving your vehicle with the caring staff at Knauz Auto Storage, we will need just a few things from you so that we can provide exceptional care and security for your luxury or vintage vehicle:

1. Battery replacement, especially if your current battery is over three years old

2. A complete vehicle detail to help minimize vehicle deterioration and corrosion during storage by removing road grit, acid rain residue, road salt, and tree sap

3. Perform any needed mechanical issues or body repairs

4. We offer air-brushing for minor scratches.

5. We offer wheel repairs.

6. We offer glass repair and replacement.

7. Change oil and filter before storage.

8. Flush and replace fluids, such as brake and engine coolant.

9. Inflate tires with nitrogen to help prevent wheel corrosion.

10. Need a vehicle cover? Ask our staff about one prior to storage.

We understand how valuable your time is, and we are happy to provide pick-up and drop-off service with 24-hour notice. Knauz Auto Storage guarantees that you will be entirely satisfied when storing your luxury or vintage vehicle with us. When you buy Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles, you want the best of the best when you need to find secure storage.
