Tips on Storing Your Classic Car

Tips on Storing Your Classic Car

Owning a classic car can be great, but one of the things that you'll have to do is to properly maintain it, especially if you want to preserve it. A key component of maintaining a classic car is where you store it.

Not storing it properly can leave it susceptible to damage from the elements, as well as theft. Here are some tips on storing your classic car:

Make Sure It Has a Full Tank of Gas.

When you store your classic car, you should always make sure that it has a full tank of gas, especially if you're storing it for an extended period of time. Having a full tank of gas means that moisture is unlikely to form in an empty void and, as a result, sediment won't form at the bottom of your gas tank. This could have an adverse effect on the fuel line. It's best to fill it up with high-octane gas and to use a fuel stabilizer as well for added protection!

Make Sure the Oil is Changed and the Spark Plugs are Removed.

Another thing to do is to make sure the oil is changed before you store it. Oil that is old and dirty can cause internal engine rusting, especially on older models, due to the amount of water and/or acid that it may contain.

In addition, the spark plugs should be removed and a lubricant should be applied to the cylinders in order to better ensure that the piston rings and cylinder walls don't rust. Plus, this also means that your car can't be used without your knowledge.

Place it on a Jack.

Your classic car should also be placed on jack stands if it's going to be stored for a long period. These jack stands will ensure that the tires don't become flat over time and that the suspension doesn't become compromised due to having to support the weight of the vehicle for a prolonged period. It gives your classic car much needed rest!

Classic Car Storage Company
Give It a Good Wash.

Before you store your classic car, make sure that you wash it well, preferably by hand. You want to store it when it's completely clean, with no dirt or other materials on the exterior or the interior. Make sure to check to see that you don't have any garbage inside the car, especially food! Otherwise, you may be in for a surprise the next time you open it.

Store It With a Professional.

Finally, another thing that you can do is to store your vehicle with a professional classic car storage company. They will be able to ensure that the storage unit is clean and has the optimal temperature and conditions to preserve your vehicle, no matter how long you need to keep it in storage.

Make sure to follow the above tips to best preserve your classic car, especially if you plan on storing your car for a long period of time, such as during the winter. Its value and beauty require some special steps that you might otherwise not have to deal with, but it'll be worth it!

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
