Hey Cassie,

I live in Helsinki and I can say that it is not easy to find indoor storage space for cars or trucks.

This place S O U T H M A R I N E offers storage service for boats and yachts and they might take cars aswell. It is worth asking at least.

Trans Am Oy also offers storage for cars. Price is 85 € / month. Tel. +358 50 5750885

Motorhome renting Finland Helsinki - AV-rent Oy they rent caravans, but they also offer storage service. Tel. +358 400 843 998.

Those are the only ones I know. Good luck!

Helsinki Storage

Korpisoturi,
Cool - that's fantastic. That's miles more progress than we had made. Will look into the contacts you provided - all 3 sound great. Will advise what we end up doing for info.
Many thanks
Cassie

Trans Am Storage Helsinki

Just to say Trans Am (option 2) out of the contacts provided came up trumps for us. Covered storage - plenty of space - just phone a few days before planning to arrive so no need to pre-arrange too far in advance in case plans change. 50% deposit on leaving vehicle, remainder on collection. Very prompt email responses plus a map of exact location etc. Thanks again!

I'm glad to hear that everything worked out.

If you need any help while in Helsinki or anywhere in southern Finland please drop me a PM and I'll send you my email address for faster contacting.
