For all our customers cars our pre-storage safe wash is a must. All our premium service customers recieve our Pre-storgae safe wash as part of the service.

A clean car going in to storage will usually result in a clean car coming out of storage without any nasty surpises.

Our Exterior Pre-storage safe wash includes the following process:

We use non-abrasive, clean microfibre towels for the interior and clean, non abrasive microfibre, waffle drying towels for drying the bodywork.

To finish the process we’ll do one of two things.

Either leave the vehicle to dry statically in our indoor drying room or, better, take the vehicle for a 10 – 15 minute drive. Either way all cars will be thoroughly dry before being parked in storage and a soft, breathable cover is applied.
