Check-in and check-out process page graphic

For your total peace of mind North West Classic Car Storage conduct a five-stage 'check-in' and 'check-out' process for each vehicle that enters our care. Our professional and dedicated approach ensures the condition of your car is documented at each stage of the storage process and leaves us in the best possible condition.

For additional security your vehicle keys are stored independently from the vehicle itself.

1. Vehicle condition documented upon arrival

The current condition of your classic or modern car is documented in photographs and paperwork with copies submitted to the client for their records. This will take place when the car is either delivered to our storage facilities by the client or collected by ourselves from the agreed location.

2. Car cleaned and detailed inside and out

The vehicle exterior is washed and dried and the interior is vacuum cleaned and polished.

3. Mechanics checked and adjusted

Engine fluid levels, tyre pressures and battery levels are also checked on arrival and continually throughout the storage period. Tyre pressures may be adjusted at the start of the storage period to allow for best storage conditions.

4. Storage updates sent to client

Updates can be supplied to the client by email or hard copy at pre-agreed intervals during the storage period. Details will include a review of the current condition and details of any defects found. Drip trays can be placed beneath the vehicle to check for leaks. Vehicles moved weekly within the facilities to stop flat spots on tyres and bearings.

5. Vehicle prepared in readiness for departure

At the conclusion of the storage period your vehicle will be prepared in readiness to be collected by or delivered to the client.

Preparation will include:

  • Tyre pressures adjusted where necessary
  • Screen wash fluid checked and topped up
  • All lights (interior and front/rear) checked and bulbs replaced if required
  • Final cleaning and detailing before handover
  • Door-to-door delivery if requested by client
