I’m traveling out of town for the holidays and I just got a reminder email from my leasing office about snow removal, and that I should be ready to move my car whenever there is more than 2 inches of snow.

Problem is, my roommate will be out of town at the same time as me. And I don’t have any other friends in the community I live in.

What would be my options if there is a requirement for me to move my car and I’m out of town? Other than taking my chances of having my car towed.

I live in Nashua. Last winter I was in Denver and I didn’t face this issue since the leasing office there didn’t have this requirement (or never enforced it)

This is only my second winter in the US as a car owner, so I’m not too familiar with the snow removal procedures when living in a community.

Have you tried bringing this up with the office? Let them know you plan to be travelling and see what they say.

Yeah I’ll be talking with them as well

Same thing happened to me last winter and I spoke to the leasing office. Problem solved.

Park in a Long term parking garage.

That might work if Nashua had such things. Even the two city garages don't permit multiday parking; even the leased spaces are only leased during business hours.

Talk to the office first, you can’t be the first person to be away during a storm so I’d be willing to bet they have some sort of solution for you

If not, do you have any friends who own a house with a driveway? Maybe they’d let you keep your vehicle there for a while

One option could be to put your car in a storage facility like Self Storage or Public Storage. Sometimes theses places even offer a unit for $1 your first month - just make sure you understand the requirements for terminating the contract so you don't get stuck paying a full month's rent.

Forgive my ignorance, but I never knew you could store cars in a public storage facility

You often see RVs, boats etc in the parking lot behind the facility.

U-Haul has a deal going for a free month of storage right now.

I hear George Costanza's rates are reasonable. He gets paid in pretzels and Gatorade.

Usually rental complexes will have a designated area for tenants cars when they go on vacation.
