OUR APPROACH TO YOUR MODERN CLASSIC CAR STORAGE:
COLLECTION & DELIVERY:
In addition to storage, you have the option for your vehicle to be collected and trailered to our facility and returned to you when you would like to use it. This is an additional service we offer in addition to our standard storage rates.
Upon arrival, we start with an induction process involving:
- Photographs of your car inside and out
- Recording of mileage
- Fluid level checks (oil, antifreeze, screen wash etc.)
- Tyre tread depth check
- Battery fluid level check (n/a for sealed batteries)
Once this is complete, all modern classic Mercedes go through a strict cleaning routine to remove toxins that may cause damage to your paintwork during storage.
Your modern classic Mercedes will then be placed in our storage facility under cover, with your tires over-inflated to 50psi to prevent flat spots, a trickle charger attached and then a drip tray placed underneath as a precaution.
We ask that all fuel tanks are brimmed to prevent condensation within your fuel tank.
