Autovault provide a range of extra car storage services at our facilities
Dehumidified Car Storage
The AutoVault car storage facilities are equipped with the latest, British-made dehumidifiers to ensure that the whole storage building is kept at a Relative Humidity (RH) of 55%. This is a crucial figure, as natural materials such as wood and leather can dry out excessively if RH is too low, while rust can form on ferrous metals above this. We believe there is no better way to store a complex and valuable prestige or classic vehicle, than in a purpose built car storage building that’s entire environment is protected and managed against the harmful effects of moisture.
CCTV Surveillance Car Storage
The covert and visible video surveillance cameras at AutoVault’s car storage facilities use sophisticated digital technology to ensure that quality images of all movements are captured whatever the light conditions. The images, date and time franked are collected on our hard drive. The car storage premises are fully alarmed, with dual circuit connection to private security contractors who guarantee very rapid response. Proximity to the county’s Police headquarters and helicopter base add reassurance.

• Periodic operation of car engines and gearboxes

I have found storing my Classic Porsche with Autovault simple and easy to arrange they gave me the peace of mind I wanted to allay my fears about leaving my car on the driveway when I’m not using it, especially during the winter months. I found it comforting to know that my car was being regularly inspected and started during these cold winter months.
