Having setup and run the storage facility on behalf of the Club for 6 years, in October last year I took on the lease myself.

It’s basically a large double apex barn that we cleared out and made secure (professional roller doors and strong access door with multiple dog bolts). It’s well ventilated and dry, but a dust cover is recommended.

Prices are very competitive (in fact, rediculously cheap compared with anything else remotely comparable I’ve seen)

1 month - £50
6 months - £240
Annual - £460

Cars must be driveable (I’m getting too old to push other people’s projects :D ) and I will trickle charge batteries, keep tyres inflated and run the engines every so often.

We have a great relationship with Rich March of Classic Details, a professional detailing company (and Scimitar owner) who will be happy to quote for any level of cleaning and protection - before, during, or after storage.

I also have a local MOT place that are “sympathetic but sensible” with classics.

Customers are welcome to pop in and give their cars a cuddle - with a little notice I can move them around so they can be taken out for a drive around the farm.

Anonymity is our first line of security, so please don’t ask for a postcode (that’s only given to customers after they’ve visited :D ) and it doesn’t appear on Google street view - but we’re somewhere between Cheltenham and Cirencester.

Currently we have one space (car left last week to begin rebuild after 3 years storage) with another becoming available at the end of this month after winter hibernation. The next space will probably be in 6 months time.

That depends on your situation I suppose Hugh. It’s about 250 miles to Newcastle. I currently have 2 cars from Kent, about 180 miles away because it’s cheaper to add a day moving a car to the overall cost, than it is to store it locally (where there is no available storage anyway).

Making space for an additional car this winter as we’ve had a huge number of enquiries this month. One going out and 3 coming in will see us full until Spring.

Due to the number of enquiries, we’ve negotiated additional winter storage on the farm. It’s secure, dry and huge - I don’t know exactly how many cars it will hold (probably 15-20?) but we have 4 customers already.

I could give you a lift to Cheltenham and it’s 38 mins on the train from there?

First car into the additional storage - It’ll fit 18 and we currently have 4 cars and one boat booked in.

Main barn is now full with some local modern machinery and the overflow storage is filling up nicely.
