Winter Storage

I'm looking for a place to store my 280sl. Is anyone familiar with any of the storage facilities on www.autostorage.de?

I'm dreaming that one day I'll have a temperature controlled garage....

I have no room in my garage for the 560sl, so I have it about 2 miles away in the heated garage of an apartment building. They charge me $100/month. There are about 1/2 dozen other "collector" cars stored there (including a 350sl that just came out from under a car cover last week) as well as resident's cars (mostly higher level cars, Cadillacs, Mercedes, BMW) -- so, while I worry about dings, it hasn't happened yet. I will often leave my other car there and take the 560sl for a week or more (checking the other car from time to time).

The nice part is that I can go in any time, year round, and check on the car and during the winter if its a warmer weekend with no snow on the ground, I can take the car for a spin. I usually check on it twice a month or so and start it up.
