Put it down to MD Tim Earnshaw’s background in the exacting world of F1 logistics, but at Windrush, our prestige car storage goes far beyond the industry standard.
While other car storage facilities take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, stowing vehicles with little more than a wash-down, we prefer the ‘above and beyond’ ethos, providing a level of care and attention to detail that delights (and often surprises) our clients. “The principles at Windrush are the same as in F1,” says Tim. “We’re in the business of making people happy.”
When your vehicle arrives at Windrush’s facilities in London or the Cotswolds, our prestige car storage begins with an industry-leading twelve-step induction that leaves no stone unturned. You’ll be reassured by the close eye we keep on paperwork, with your car’s condition documented (with receipt issued), its keys tagged, and a record created with a unique ID.
Having applied interior protection, we’ll then treat your vehicle to a washing process unlike any other, ensuring there’s no risk of corrosion while your car is in our care. Whereas most car storage facilities stop there, we also prepare the mechanicals, checking and optimising engine fluid levels, battery health and tyre pressures, applying brakes to remove wash flash rust from discs and drums, hooking up a CTEK battery conditioner and carefully sliding a drip tray beneath to monitor any potential fluid loss. Only once your car has air-dried for a full 24 hours will we finally place it into its own individual storage bay beneath a soft, breathable cover. And that’s just the start.
Our prestige car storage means more than simply covering your car and sitting back. As you’d expect, the security at Windrush’s London and Cotswolds facilities is second to none, with each discreet indoor location monitored around the clock and inspected at least twice-daily. Dig deeper, though, and you’ll discover that every element of our facilities is precision-engineered to create the ideal environment for your car, drawing on Tim’s first-hand expertise of what it takes to maintain the finest vehicles in the world.
At Windrush, you can literally feel the difference in the air. That’s down to a dehumidified and climate-controlled environment, fastidiously maintained at the 55% relative humidity (RH) proven to be optimal to combat corrosion and mildew. Even then, your vehicle won’t just sit in stasis. Our prestige car storage includes a battery charger and drip tray inspection every week, a full run-up to temperature every 60 days – and a close eye on every facet of your car’s manufacturer-recommended servicing schedule.
Want to check in your pride and joy? No problem. We’ll send regular photo updates, direct to your inbox. It’s all part of our prestige car storage service.
When you return from a business trip and want to enjoy a well-earned break behind the wheel, Windrush will be ready. Don’t worry about outdated paperwork: as part of our prestige car storage service, we’ll stay on top of your MOT, servicing schedule and road tax on your behalf. And don’t worry about losing precious motoring time stuck in departure limbo: we keep all cars in a constant ‘ready-to-roll’ state.
As soon as we get your call, we’ll swing into action, applying the finishing touches, from battery, lights, horn, tyre pressure and fluid checkover, right down to setting the correct time on the clock. And if you’d rather sit back and let us deliver the vehicle to your door, just say the word.
It’s all part of a luxury car storage service that always goes the extra mile. “There’s no need to do some of what we do,” admits Tim. “But when you deliver the highest levels of service, you have to ensure every possible detail is taken care of, to guarantee the best possible outcomes.”
