I live in the northeast Philadelphia area and am looking for a garage to store one of my antique cars. I am interested in the northeast area or Bensalem. I have 3 cars but I only need space for one. The 3 cars are all insured and driveable the biggest one is a 1955 Packard 400 the smallest one is a 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible I also have a 1940 Packard. Don't even refer me to craigslist because after communication with some of the incompetents who posted garage available only to find out they were still occupied or the owner was out of town and we could not meet I am ready to pull my hair out. I am a retired police officer on disability so the price must be reasonable.

Wish you luck. It’s always hard finding space for one of our prize collectibles and at a safe and affordable cost. Been there, good luck.

Ask around about single or widowed women who might have the room & like an extra $50+ a month. Maybe they have a condo or the like.
The Gal who stored my Packard never minded a little help with her garbage or bags of mulch now & then...

Look for an old industrial building used for car storage, especially if there's a ramp up upper floors. That for me is the best affordable car storage. The worst: Pole barns in the country. An open invitation to moisture and mice.

I recommend Victory Garage in Pottsville, Pa. Not that far from Philly. Go to the website and you will get the info you need. I keep my 55 Clipper there and it's great service at a fair price! The owner is all about customer service!

When I moved out of Phila area, I just rented space at a storage place down the road from my house. It was very reasonable at the time. I had multiple spaces under roof/3 sides. So you might find one near by and inquire. Some give one months rent free.

I have one of my cars in a dedicated vehicle storage facility. The space has good security, is insulated, has electricity and is heated. It is less expensive than the usual general purpose storage spaces which generally lack the amenities of a specialized space. Maybe there is such a business near you.
