A potential business dealing such as this from some total stranger one does not know can have many irregularities like others have mentioned...liability !

I also do not like the idea of some stranger to have an excuse wanting full access on my property to get to their stored vehicle when they need to...

That's why vehicle storage places do exist, so that individuals can reach out to a business they provide, but the idea of a person reaching out to another person they do not know in order to use their property in some way does not vibe with me personally...

Had one troublemaker on my block in 2010 persuade a neighbor to store his cabover camper (no rig and living in it) on a vacant lot, a week later the troopers raided it as the troublemaker was arrested on a sexual assault charge, and they also found a runnin meth lab in the camper - the guy got 16 years for that, and the neighbor was real close from losing his vacant lot to the state while not knowing the guy that well.

Too many horror stories nowadays happen with renters vs home owners on rental properties in general to where owners can lose out in certain situations, while dealing with a potential headache...

Flip the coin around in this perspective - if yourself would place an ad to post a space available for winter vehicle storage on your own property (you reaching out to offer others), would you feel comfortable doing so to a complete stranger or the general public while weighing all the "what if's"... if one can answer 'yes' to this question - they have better nerves than I do with the general public....

The only way I would personally do such a thing is if I personally knew the individual real good, write up terms of agreement, exchange and timeframe signed by me and the other person, and waive all potential liability with a store at your own risk clause on said personal asset on my own property....plus I would have no bad vibes about it as it would strictly be doing a favor for someone.

Then again, I am one of those type of people that always answers "sorry, I am not in the lending business" or "you know I don't have that kind of money" when co workers or acquaintances ask to borrow between $5 to $20 'til next week' scenario...had enough people I knew not ever pay back in the past.
