What are your opening times?

Can I leave another vehicle with you when I collect my vehicle?

Unlike other storage facilities, we understand the inconvenience of trying to get a lift or make arrangements to pick up your vehicle from storage and therefore are more than happy for you to leave a vehicle when you take your pride and joy out. We can also offer a valeting and repairs service for your vehicle when you leave it with us.

Is there a minimum storage contract?

Yes - Four weeks, but as our facilities and services are in demand, should you relinquish your space we cannot guarantee future availability.

How can I pay?

 We take a four week deposit upfront and generally the majority of customers pay weekly by standing order.


All vehicles are covered on our motor trader policy when we are either working on the vehicle or moving it, however all vehicles stored with us should be individually insured and you should inform your insurance company that it is with us as some insurers will offer a discount.
