TigaStor is situated close to Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, giving easy access to Heathrow, London, Motorways and Silverstone.
Cars are stored in secure, dry airy buildings, which are used for car storage only. If required a dehumidified environment can be supplied at slightly higher cost. Our buildings are insurance company approved, and fitted with intruder alarms.
At commencement of storage, cars are washed, leather dried and the interiors valeted; tyres are inflated to 45lbs.sq.in, and, prior to delivery, fluid levels are checked and tyre pressured corrected, including the spare.
Whilst in storage we recommend that Battery Conditioners are fitted. (See price list). On older cars batteries are disconnected.
The secret of keeping a car in good condition during a period of storage is to carry out a regular maintenance programme. TigaStor was one of the first companies to offer professional car storage in 1982, and instigated many of the practices now common amongst storage companies.
We are confident that our routine maintenance programme is the best available. We advise that it is carried out at (maximum) 13 week intervals, although we are happy to carry out the wishes of the owner.
Before starting the car, oil, coolant etc. is checked. The car is then started and gently warmed up. Temperatures are carefully checked and when warm, the car is given a light exercise inside our property, to circulate oils, greases etc. A comprehensive list is then completed and presented to the owner.
Although our service is geared towards long-term storage, cars are always available at reasonably short notice, including weekends. Owners are always welcome to come for a chat, even if they do not wish to take their car out.
Cars can usually be removed from storage at 24 hours notice. However, if the car is to be removed permanently, all charges up to the date of removal must be paid prior to removal. We have no minimum period.
Our responsibilities are covered by full motor trade policies. You should ensure that your car is covered for fire, theft and accidental damage. Please advise your insurers that your car is stored with TigaStor.
We are able to arrange collection and delivery of cars to and from any specialist restorers, racing circuits, airports etc.
M.O.T. Testing and Servicing
Cars can be prepared for the M.O.T. Test and Test Certificates obtained. Our mechanic can carry out routine servicing and repairs.
Shipping and Airfreight
We are able to arrange for the collection of cars from the Docks, etc. and also have experience of the exportation by sea and air of both cars and motorcycles.
We are happy to inspect any car which an overseas client was considering purchasing from a dealer or a private seller. A report, with photographs, is provided, which can remove some of the common frustrations involved in purchasing at a distance. This service would be charged at cost.
