NOT ALL VEHICLE STORAGE FACILITIES ARE CREATED EQUAL!
JUST LIKE CONTRACTORS - MOST ARE NOT PROPERLY INSURED!
ONE SPACE LEFT
Our 10,000sf state-of-the-art facility is now taking SPRING/SUMMER 2019 reservations.
For more information - please visit www.PaddockNJ.com
Feel free to print the questions below for quick reference when inquiring about facilities.
*INSURANCE: THE most important question to ask the facility operator: "Do you carry an *AGREED VALUE* GARAGE KEEPERS POLICY?" Only this type of policy will cover your vehicle AT FULL VALUE in the event of an unfortunate or negligent act. If they do not have this specific policy, YOU will have to fight with your carrier to get a fair settlement. Also, ask for a copy of their policy declaration page. MAKE SURE the policy is for the AGREED VALUE of your vehicle!
The Paddock carries a $4mm AGREED VALUE Garage Keepers Policy (depending on occupancy) written through HAGERTY BUSINESS INSURANCE (yes that Hagerty -- THE classic vehicle insurance people!) You will be covered. Their adjusters "live and breathe" classic vehicles!
*FLOOD DATA (along the Shore) - Is the building located in a floodplain V, A or AE. These zones are PRONE TO FLOODING
In your web browser - http://njparcels.com/property/ Enter the address and county. Remember to abbreviate "ln" for lane; "cir" for circle. Why put your prized vehicle at risk?
The Paddock is located in an X zone - there is no flooding in this zone
*CLIMATE CONTROLLED: Some competitors believe that 4 walls surrounding your prized vehicle constitutes a "Secure, Climate Controlled" storage facility. We call that a storage unit, a garage, or in some cases a freezer!
Be sure to ask the right questions: "How is your facility heated?" "Is it Air Conditioned?" "What is the thermostat setting?" "What is the heat setting?" and "How will you know if the temperature goes below the set temperature?"
The Paddock is heated by three thermostatically controlled 100,000btu heating units with hepafilters set at 65 degrees equipped with sensors that both text and email if the temperature goes below 45 degrees. Temperature is also remotely monitored via Smartphone. Some competitors represent they are heated when they are not. You should visit them, inspect the heating units and check the thermostat settings. The Paddock also has 5 tons of DEHUMIDIFICATION and 5 tons of AIR CONDITIONING.
You should ask about the dehumidification and A/C systems. What percent humidity is acceptable? Are they "empty when full" models?? The Paddock maintains 50% to 55% humidity.
*SECURITY: WHO moves your car and has access to the keys??? Only one person will move your car - ME!
You should visit to assess what kind of neighborhood is the facility is located in? Would you walk there at night? WHO has access to the facility? Is it a Storage Facility or a Parking Garage? Is the owner notified if a door opens, if there is a power failure or when the alarm is disarmed? Does the facility have a full security system with cameras, door, motion, glass break, fire, CO and freeze detectors? Is the alarm system connected to a 24/7 central station? How? (phone lines or cellular). Does the system have a battery backup? Does the facility have a back-up generator?
The Paddock is located at the Jersey Shore. It is a Storage Facility. It is located in a VERY SAFE town AND area. Currently, there are only three individuals with access to the facility. The Paddock is alarmed with door, motion, glass break, fire, CO and freeze detectors. It is connected to a 24/7 central station via a CELLULAR connection -- NO WIRES TO CUT! Both a text and email are received in the event of a power outage, if a door gets opened or if the alarm is set off. The system also has a battery backup and a Generator.
**OTHER IMPORTANT ITEMS TO CONSIDER:
Have they invested in a REAL PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE or just a Facebook Page or a Craigslist ad? See www.PaddockNJ.com
Will they give you a 1-year lease? If not, they are probably in this for the SHORT GAME!
Is the owner a "car guy"? Does he promote the hobby?
Does the owner have his own cars in the facility? On average, I have 5 cars at the Paddock.
Are they "baiting" you with a free month's rent or "prepayment discounts"? Remember "free is never free".
This is the culmination of my 20-year dream and many years of planning. I know how expensive a malfunction due to the improper storage of the vehicle can be. Your vehicles need to be maintained and protected to preserve their value and be available to you when you want to enjoy them.
I can protect you prized vehicle in our indoor, secure, climate controlled, vehicle storage facility, for a low monthly cost. The facility is heated and we run dehumidifiers 24/7 to keep humidity level between 50 and 55% to protect your vehicle. The facility is centrally located to Routes 33, 34, 195 and the Garden State Parkway.
This facility is built and managed by a fellow car enthusiast. I understand how important your cherished vehicle is to you.
