Here at Retro Custom, we understand that not everyone has a nice warm garage to store their classic Volkswagen. Many Volkswagen owners worry about deterioration of their pride and joy during the long cold winter months when left exposed to the harsh elements of the British weather.
We offer three different storage packages to give you peace of mind knowing your vehicle is tucked away safe and sound. With a range of storage options from simple maintained safekeeping to fully air temperature controlled vehicle storage you can rest assured that your pride and joy is in safe hands.
The advantage of storing your vehicle with a classic Volkswagen specialist is not only the luxury of knowing your vehicle is in the right hands, but also that you have access to Retro Custom's full range of services right on your vehicle's doorstep.
At Retro Custom, we also understand the effects of long term storage on your vehicle so as standard, the brakes are operated fortnightly and your battery is kept fully charged and maintained. Also, before collection after any prolonged storage period, every vehicle receives a fuel line safety check to ensure that your fuel lines have not deteriorated and are in safe condition.
To allow us to offer you the best service possible, we require a minimum of 24 hours' notice to remove your vehicle from storage. If you choose the advanced service package and your MOT expires while your vehicle in storage, you will benefit from our express MOT service where we will MOT your vehicle within five working days of notification of your vehicle being taken out of storage.
Our storage packages and prices are all detailed below. If you would like to store your vehicle with us, please get in touch with us through the website contact page.
