long-time storage

Preparing a vehicle for long-time storage

Whether you’re a collector, or just someone who needs long-time storage for whatever reason there are many things you need to consider. Although, it would be great if you could just park your car and leave it in your garage for years, the reality isn’t as straightforward.

Cars that aren’t taken care of tend to show signs of wear overtime, whether you use them or not. Simply leaving a car and hoping that it stays in good condition, isn’t going to work.

We’ve put together a short guide to help you better understand what needs to be considered when it comes to long-time storage, so read on and get the most out of your vehicle.

Before putting your car in storage, there are numerous things you should do first. Start off with inspecting your vehicle and checking for any faults. It’s best that these are fixed, before you put your vehicle away as it’s best to store a car in the best condition possible.

Simply, check everything that you believe could be faulty and make note of the things you think are worth fixing. You can either do this yourself, or ideally you can your car to a professional for a full inspection.

Don’t forget to wash your vehicle one last time before putting it into storage. Wash away all the dirt that has accumulated on the car, as it will help the vehicle remain in good condition for longer. You don’t want there to be any rust, once you get the vehicle back out, and dirt and salts can do that to a car.

Choosing the right place to store your vehicle is also crucial. You want the place to be dry and dark if possible, as it will keep your car in much better shape in the long run. A standard garage is a good place to store a car, as long as it’s dry and secure.

Covering your car is also recommended. You don’t want any dirt to get on the vehicle whilst it’s in storage, so covering it will make it much more secure.
