Storage Details

Our minimum term for storage is 13 weeks from the date your vehicle enters our storage facility, this can continue for as long as you wish, with an ongoing rolling contract until you decide to remove permanently.

During your vehicles stay with us, we will regularly inspect and check tyre pressures and fluid leakage, vehicle battery state and TAX and MOT status if required. We can arrange servicing, repairs, coachworks and MOT testing. Battery conditioner chargers and covers can also be supplied. We strongly advise fitting a charger to ensure the condition and efficacy of the battery is maintained.

We also offer all manner of cosmetic vehicle care such as detailing paint correction, paint protection film (PPF), wheel refurbishment and valeting.

Should you wish to opt-in, we offer our vehicle exercise programme, your car will be stared and run on a regular basis, therefore keeping it 'ready to go' for those moments when you want to use and enjoy it.

Access is available during working hours, Monday to Friday and by appointment only at weekends. Should you wish to temporally extract and use the car at any time during its storage period then a minimum of 48 hours notice is required before collection. The car will be prepared before extraction and then methodically checked in on its return.

We ask that vehicles enter our storage clean and decontaminated of road silt. Both to maintain the cleanliness of the facility and preserve the condition of the vehicle. A charge is applied for cars requiring a full valet.
