As the last few months of the year are approaching, now is the ideal time to think about the storage of your classic car over the winter period. Improper storage can do a classic car more harm than running it on the rough winter roads. It is essential that your beloved vintage vehicle is not only secure, but also stored in facilities which are structured to offer the right conditions.
Properly storing your car for the winter involves much more than just putting it in an enclosed space and forgetting about it. When placed in inadequate storage spaces, cars can suffer deterioration, meaning that come springtime they will present owners with frustrating problems and expense.
Even the most simple machinery items function better when regularly used, and the same principle applies to vehicles. Poor quality storage can lead to corrosion, perished rubber and leather, problematic brakes and clutches, issues with tyres and much more.
Ideally, cars should be started at least once a month as this brings the engine to full operating temperature. Alternatively, the engine should be turned over on occasion to prevent the compressed valve springs from becoming permanently shortened as well as moving the oil around the gearbox and the engine.
