Re: Storing for extended periods

Remove the battery from the car and take it to a place that has electric.

If you don't have one of them trickle chargers that you can leave on all of the time, charge the battery up with a normal charger, then put it on a timer to come on for 30 minutes every week....fully charge the battery before refitting after the 7 months.

Leave the handbrake off and either put the car in gear or chock the wheels.

Just google storing a car to save me writing all of the tips out


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
