Happy holidays! The benefits of short-term car storage

7 March 2020

It’s hard to believe March is already here, but for many people that also means the beckoning of a much deserved summer holiday.

If you’re a petrolhead, classic car collector or someone who just loves their four- or two-wheeled friend, holidays present a rather unique problem.

Sure, you can’t wait to get away but, equally, you’re a little bit worried about leaving your vehicle unattended in your garage or on the drive.

The answer? Short-term car storage! Here’s why.

It’s one less thing to worry about

Let’s be honest - there’s lots of stuff to worry about when you head off on holiday. Passports, too much luggage and a huge credit card bill on your return are probably the most common.

If you’re into your cars, that’ll be a worry, too. Which is why placing yours in short-term car storage is a brilliant idea. As soon as you drop it off, you won’t even think about it - trust us.

It costs less than dog sitting

Putting the pooch up while you’re away isn’t cheap, whether you opt for doggy day care or kennels. But, guess what? Pick the right car storage company and short-term storage of your vehicle is far more affordable than you might think.

In fact, it’s ridiculously cost effective when you bear in mind how much peace of mind it delivers. It might even mean you can upgrade to a doggy hotel for your four-legged friend.

Your car will be in the best possible health

Leaving your car unattended on your drive or in the garage won’t do it much good if the weather turns.

Equally, without regular starts or tyre pressure checks, it could be in a slightly worse for wear state when you return.

Not so with car storage, because the right company will ensure it’s started regularly and that it remains in the best climate-controlled conditions.

You can get those little niggles sorted

At SCRACS, we offer all sorts of services above and beyond car storage. For instance, if you’ve got some paintwork that needs sorting but you’ve been putting it off for ages, we’ll get it sorted for you.

The same goes for servicing, MOTs and lots more. Why not get more out of your car storage than just a safe place for your motor?

Picking it up will be a dream

We all know that feeling of returning to a beloved car after some time away, but there’s something super special about picking it up from a great car storage facility.

As soon as you’re handed the keys and it emerges from the safe facility in which it has been resting, you’ll be wide-eyed with excitement. What better way to finish a holiday?

Wrapping up

If you’re heading away on holiday but worry about leaving your car unattended for any length of time, short-term car storage might be an option you haven't considered.

As we’ve hopefully proved today, it’s often the best way to ensure your pride and joy is in the best health when you return - and it’s so much more affordable than you might think. What’s not to love?
