CARS - Car Storage
& Registration Service

Car Storage

CARS are able to offer secure vehicle storage facilities at our Head Office in Chedburgh (near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk).

All of our storage team are trained mechanics, and can ensure that your car is mechanically looked after during its stay with us. We will report on any mechanical issues that may arise.

We are able to provide you with the following comprehensive car storage service;

  • Secure indoor, heated, alarmed storage premises with full CCTV with 24 hour recording / monitoring.
  • Tax-free storage (we are an approved Customs Bonded facility - probably the only tax-free car storage location in the UK).
  • Our own insurance provides cover for any car, of any value, allowing you to suspend or cancel your own insurance arrangements.
  • Your car will be started twice a month, brought to operating temperature, and then stood for 30 minutes. We will then check for any leaks or easily identifiable problems.
  • Monthly tyre pressure check.

If you would like your car carefully looked after, then we are the people to talk to.
