  • SoCal - San Fernando Valley Race Car & Trailer Storage

    Guys;
    I'm putting the feelers out to see who is looking for inexpensive (yet secure) storage of their trailer and/or race car? What I'm working on will be in the heart of the San Fernando Valley and for race cars & trailers only (no RV's, boats, ect..).

    Due to it's location, who owns the land and who the neighbors are has the property under the watchful eye of Homeland Security (no lie)! So, if a gopher farts anywhere near your rig rest assured someone watched it happen and the fuzz will be dispatched to go catch the varmint.

    I'll have pricing early next week but wanted to see if there is any interest.

    If that's where I think it is. Next to 405 north of 101. That would be great for most here. It is on the way up to wsir, Buttonwillow and NorCal tracks. So one can pick it up and drop off on the way.

      Indeed, the location is perfect for pick-up & drop-off (my car & trailer are there). It's up the 405 midway between the 101 & 118 near Van Nuys Airport, Shell Oil (neighbors), and the Budwiser facility. Easy on & off the fwy.

        Would access be 24/7 ?

                But the days when the wind blows just right.... holy MOLY you know you are next to a brewery.

                And I miss Busch Gardens.

                You can tell I grew up just the other side of the airport...

                  I know right !?!?!?! I think it has to do more with the airport and the 100,000 gallons of gasoline that is very nearby.

                    Unfortunately it will not be 24/7, hrs will be somewhat flexible if an appointment is made (and it's reasonable). Part of the reason this will only be available for racers is the lot is being used (and sub-let) by racers who understand what we go through and need.

                    Pricing will be in finalized mid-Monday.

                      I think I would very likely need access at about 5:00 a.m. on the Saturday morning of SoCal races or track events, and again around 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. Sunday night. Is that doable?

                        All these details are being worked-out but I know on SoCal NASA event weekends the lot/shop will be closed mid-Friday to get to the track.

                          I don't see how that works for anyone except the guy running the lot. He wants to lock up and leave mid-Friday. I want to leave late Friday or very early Saturday morning, but I'm locked out. That's a no go for me.

                            Would working on the race car be allowed as well in the facility? I would be in if it has the benefits of a warehouse space but is cheaper due to the smaller amount of access.

                              I could care less that it doesn't work you Richard and I'm sure no one else does either... Why not just keep it to yourself and not poison the well. Okay.


                              This deal isn't going to be perfect for everyone and 'storage' is not the primary function of location. This is not an "RV or U-Store-It" facility, it's a rather large parking lot behind an automotive service center. The service they will soon be offering is a something I asked them to consider offering because I felt there was a need.

                              Some guys just need a place to park to avoid hassles (ie: neighbors, wife, police, HOA regulations, parking tickets). Where I live (Burbank) I have to move anything that is parked on the street every 72hrs, so to save that hassle and the average five tickets I get each year ($43 each) I've started keeping my rig parked over there. I pick-it up 2-days in advance of the event, pack-up and I'm off to the track when it suits me. That's the kind of service this is going to be - I very much doubt it will work for the guy who wants to "grab it at 5am the day of the event on the way to the track". But you want to grab it on the way, the day before the event at 3pm - yeah that should work just fine.
