Classic Car Storage
The requirements of classic car storage are very different from those of storing a modern car. As classic car owners for many years ourselves we understand this.
Classic cars require specific care and maintenance
Due to the use of materials more vulnerable to damage and deterioration if neglected, classic cars require much more regular, careful and specific maintenance. Leather needs feeding, chrome & paintwork need protecting and fluids need checking for breakdown.
We are well prepared to provide any car with all the care it deserves during its stay with us.
Our expert mechanics will ensure all steering and suspension ball joints, king/swivel pins and prop shaft couplings are regularly greased to prevent rusting and help stop them from seizing, ultimately prolonging their lifespan.
We will disconnect the battery from the vehicle and connect it to a trickle charger. Battery levels are checked weekly, and whenever the vehicle is removed from or returned to storage with us.
All moving cables including the throttle, choke and clutch will be inspected regularly to ensure they are not frayed or damaged in any way, and that the connections at either end are tight.
When the vehicle first arrives in storage we will check the coolant level and viscosity to ensure it does not freeze in cold weather and is optimised to prevent a build up of rust inside the engine.
As part of our Active Storage Programme™, we keep track of MOT and servicing dates for all the vehicles under our care. Following discussion with an owner, we can also instruct specialist maintenance, repair and restoration work to be carried out to any vehicle, either in our on-site facilities or at an alternative location chosen by the client.
