Where are we located?

We are conveniently located right next to where the A23 meets the A272. We are 15 minutes from Gatwick Airport and only 20 minutes from the M25.

How often can I access my car?

During our opening hours of Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm, you are welcome to have access to your car whenever suits you. Any out of hours or weekend access is available upon request.

Who has access to the vehicle vault?

Only our internal team will ever be granted access to the vehicle vault. Fingerprint recognition enables us to uphold minimal access to where your car will be stored.

Can you deliver my car to me?

Sure! We have the facility to be able to deliver your car to you whenever you want it, wherever you want it. The cost for this will depend on the delivery location.

Can you collect me from the airport or train station?

Absolutely. Any of the team would be more than happy to collect you from Gatwick Airport or any of the nearby train stations.

Do you have a minimum storage term?

Yes. We prefer to work on a 12 month commitment for all our storage agreements, but we can accommodate whatever you may require.

Do you offer a multiple vehicle discount?

Sure! The more cars you have in store with us, the better your agreement will look. Contact us directly for more information on this.

Do you provide a battery conditioner?

We know every car has its own specific charging needs. Sometimes, your original battery conditioner will be your preferred option but if you don't have access to it, we can supply a CTEK CS One to connect to your car's battery.

Is my car insured whilst it's in your care?

We’d advise you to keep your car insured with your current provider at all times, but if you do require it to be insured, we can assist with this.

What type of cars can I store?

We're geared up to make homes for anything from vintage classics right up to modern hypercars.

Do you only store cars?

No. We can accommodate storing motorbikes, car parts and car spares too.
