There are many reasons why people opt to put their prized possessions into car storage. Cars come in countless shapes and sizes, serve different purposes to their owners and have many different requirements.
Classic road cars can seriously benefit from being stored correctly over the winter months. The salt and water they are exposed to on our roads can create rust spots to body work, plus the cold air can creep into interiors causing rot and damp spots. All of this can cause havoc by the time spring rolls around. When you have a rare classic car, it is not so easy to fix these issues as one off parts can be very hard to come by.
So, what should you do? When you chose the right car storage, they can ensure all these potential threats are kept at bay. For example, our classic car storage package includes a maintenance programme where cars are started once per month. They are run to temperature to allow the engine to stay at its prime. We roll them to avoid flat spots on the tyres and also keep a fresh drip tray out so it is easy to spot if the car has any leakage issues. We can also provide a Carcoon. This system takes car care to another level with each car having its own bubble. It has 24/7 air control where the temperature and humidity are automatically monitored to keep all elements of the vehicle at its prime.
What about super cars and sports cars? These types of cars are not usually driven daily (unless you are Chris Evans, of course) but they are engineering masterpieces. Absolutely yes to be driven, but also treasured, respected and preserved. Whether they are a track car or simply to be driven on occasion; keeping them safe, secure and well maintained is of paramount importance. Our car storage can look after these elements. So, if you are short on space but have a serious set of wheels, car storage can be a winning solution for you!
We also can store the classic cars of tomorrow. Predicting what will be the next classic, then keeping it in the right condition to get the most out of in a few years is a growing trend that has seen some amazing retro cars go from potential banger to a little nest egg. Again, this category is often great fun to drive and running a classic car can be great for the engine. However, if you are doing this as a potential investment then the mileage, wear and tear to the interior or damage to the exterior can all be detrimental to potential profit. We have customers that have their 80’s and 90’s cars stored with us, just waiting patiently. The amount you can spend on storage can easily be offset against the potential earnings. Buy right, store right, be patient then let the fun begin!
