Cars in storage

Car storage

  • Secure storage
    All cars are stored in a dry, secure building.
    All cars are fully insured whilst in store with AON limited.
    All cars are inspected for damage when they arrive and the oil, water and anti-freeze levels are checked and topped up as necessary.
    The tyres are inflated to above normal pressures to avoid flat spots and the car is then put into storage and the battery disconnected.
    All cars stored for periods longer than 8 weeks will be hand washed and leather dried at the beginning and end of the storage period.

Storage options

  • Monthly start-up...

    Every month, oil and water levels are checked and the engine is run to operating temperature.
    The car is rolled to prevent tyre and bearing damage.
    The brakes and clutch are operated.
    The electrical systems are tested.
    The battery is checked and all other systems are checked for leaks.

  • 60 day Vehicle Exercise...

    Includes Monthly start-up option.
    Every 60 days, oil and water levels are checked and the tyre pressures are returned to the correct pressures.
    The car is then road tested making sure all gears are used and that everything is working as it should.
    The car is then washed and dried on return and put back into storage.
    A report is then written noting any problems that arise.

  • Battery Conditioner...

    We can fit your car with a battery conditioner to ensure your battery is kept in good condition.
    This is ideal for cars with complex electrical and alarm systems that can be upset by an interruption to the power supply.

  • Dehumidified Storage Chamber...

    The ideal way to store your car.
    Once inside, your car is dried and a constant supply of air is circulated around it 24 hrs a day.
    This option also includes a battery conditioner to keep your battery in tiptop condition.

  • Cotton covers...

    We can fit your own covers to your car whilst in storage or can supply cotton covers to keep dust at bay and protect paintwork from damage.

  • MOTs and servicing...

    Basic servicing and adjustments can be carried out in our workshop.
    MOTs and major servicing can be arranged at our local garage or a garage of your choice.
