Servicing / Restoration & Paint Protection
It may be convenient, when you are not using your car, for you to have work done on it whilst it is in our care. We are totally flexible regarding the scope of work that we can undertake for you with our own in-house workshop. This may be simple routine maintenance or more specialised repairs that we can undertake ourselves or engage the local distributors or importers for your marque. We can also offer specialised restoration and renovation services.
If faults are discovered during our weekly or monthly inspections then these are immediately reported to you, with an estimate, for your instructions to proceed with rectification.
We can fit the latest generation Paint Protection Film (PPF) to your vehicle to guard against stone chips, scratching etc whilst it is with us in our purpose built, dedicated clean room facility. We also have a fully equipped detailing studio and can carry out any detailing / valeting process from a quick wax to complete paint renovation and sealant application. Please contact us for further information.
Insurance & Registration
During its stay in our care, you should maintain Fire, Theft and Accidental Damage (storage cover) insurance for the vehicle with your Insurers. Should you prefer to cease your insurance, we shall be pleased to arrange suitable cover via our own Insurers at very competitive rates, which are probably lower than private customers would be quoted.
The Autostore has full Motor Trade Insurance cover for ourselves and our employees liabilities towards your property while in our care or being transported by our staff.
We are happy to help with registration of imported vehicles and arrange collection from shipping agents etc.
MOT Testing and Car Taxation
An integral part of The Autostore service is to take the inconvenience of car documentation bureaucracy out of your hands whilst we care for your car. If requested we'll do all that is necessary with the DVLA for you.
The probability is that if your car is over three years old and is stored for more than a few months, its MOT certificate will expire while it is in our care. We will give the car a pre-test inspection, reporting any relevant defects to you for instructions, and then arrange its MOT test in our own workshop. Any post test rectification necessary will be carried out in good time for the car's return to you, thus giving the longest possible Certificate life after storage.
