Storing a classic car through the winter

If you’re a classic car owner, surely you are committed to ensuring it stays in tip-top shape throughout all the seasons, especially the winter when it most likely will be unused for a while.  Here are some tips for safely storing a classic car:Old Jaguar

Any period of inactivity requires a number of preparatory steps to prevent damage. The most critical actions are what to look for in a storage location, what to do prior to storage, and how to cover your beloved beauty.

 

Choose a storage location with care. Where you store your car might be the most important factor in its winter survival. If you’re looking for a location that’s in the care of others, there are a few critical questions to consider.

 

  • Is the storage location also considered a high-quality car-care specialist? If anything goes awry, you want to be sure your car is being taken care of by top-notch expert staff.
  • Is the location controlled for both humidity and climate? Both are essential elements in maintaining your car’s systems and aesthetics.
  • Is the storage facility on high security? Housing such valuable investments can make a less-than-secure storage location a target for theft.

 

Hire a professional to get it ready. There are more nooks and crannies on a classic car than most can count. Make sure you get your car fully prepared by a professional who will address fluids, brakes, joints, cooling and heating systems, and the like. Unless you are a professional-grade do-it-yourselfer, it’s best to trust the pros.

 

Cover it up. Take great care in choosing a cover and make sure it’s a cotton flannel fabric, which is more breathable and gentle than other fabrics.
