Once your car is at our specialist storage facility it will be taken through our comprehensive induction process.

  • Condition record and report.
    • We will photograph the entire car inside and out as well as record mileage, fluid levels for oil, antifreeze and screen wash, tread depths. The battery will be checked for charge and performance.
  • Pre-storage wash and dry
    • This will remove and contaminates and residues that may affect the paintwork whilst it is in our storage facility.
  • Wheel preparation
    • We ensure that your alloys are clean and free of road dirt and brake dust in all those hard to reach places with our specialist cleaning solutions. We apply a dressing of rubber preserver to the tyres as well as increasing tyre pressures to 50psi to prevent flat spotting.
  • Storage
    • Your vehicle is then placed into its designated storage bay with protective cover and drip tray. Your car storage can include a Carcoon* and battery charger/conditioner** if required.
  • When you wish to come and take your car away, be it for a day, a week or however long, we will have your vehicle washed and dried and ready to go. Needless to say that when you return we will take all the care and attention putting her back into storage as we did when we first took stewardship.

*Customers are to provide their own Carcoon (or equivalent) if one is required. Customers can buy Carcoons from the SL Shop, please enquire for prices.
**Customers are to provide their own battery conditioner if this is required. Battery conditioners can be purchased from The SL Shop.
