The engine fluid levels are important in that we make sure they’re up to the correct levels, which keeps the engine healthy and running smoothly. We’ll also check the battery health, so that it won’t drain or fail to operate after the long term car storage Hampshire. Next, the tyres are slightly over-inflated. While this isn’t recommended for driving the vehicle, while the vehicle is stationary, it helps to prevent flat-spotting, and thus increase the longevity of your tyres.
Steps seven, eight and nine see the car air-dried for 24 hours, to expel any lingering moisture that could cause mould and other damage. A stern application of the brakes sees any flash rust on the brake discs removed to stop propagation. When the car is settled into place, a drip tray is placed underneath, allowing us to monitor for fluid leaks, and stops the long term car storage Hampshire facility from being covered in chemicals that could damage tyres and be hazardous.
Ten and eleven are the application of a CTEK battery conditioner, which is active and connected at all times to preserve the charge and health of the battery during its period of inactivity. A soft, breathable cover is placed over the vehicle to isolate the vehicle from dust build up and moisture penetration.
