car storage in Richmond

Hi all

Would like some advice in storing a hire car for 4 days in Richmond while we go to New York, I have googled short term car storage but all the sites way monthly, does anyone have any information about short term rental and safety of them etc.

Do you mean parking a car? Is it a rental car that you plan to "store" ? How are you getting to New York, train, airplane? Either of those conveyances will have parking available.

Yes it is a rental car. Looking at either the bus or train to get to NY, would the parking at the train or bus station be secure?

Are you renting locally, in Richmond? If so, the place you are renting from probably has secure parking; you could check with them, or at one of the Richmond locations if it's a national chain. I understand it may cost less to keep the car even for the four days you aren't using it, but be sure to check the option of turning it in and then getting another upon your return, too.

Hi Zoey

No renting from LA and touring around but thought the easiest way to get to NY would be either fly/train or bus from somewhere around Richmond. If we were to fly it would actually be cheaper and quicker from Charlotte. Not sure about the Greyhound bus, hear too many different stories :(

I would take the train from the RVR (Staples Mill) station, and leave my car parked there. According to the Amtrak site, there are 228 long-term spaces, with a parking attendant. There are many more departure time options there than at the RVM (Main Street) station, and as far as I know, it's considered a safe part of town.
