Car fanatics all dream of their fleet of cars that they would have if budget was not an issue. The different cars available throughout the world is vast. The research that needs to be done on a specific make and model should be extensive. The last thing anyone wants when purchasing a classic car with original parts is to find out a part they need isn’t made anymore. The storage of these luxury cars is another issue that a number of car fanatics encounter. A fleet of cars in a city that is overpopulated like New York City is nearly impossible to keep within the city. The following are tips to store your luxury car collection as efficiently as possible.
Keep in Your Home Garage
Keeping your car collection in your garage is obviously the best option in terms of budget. The truth is that not many homes are built with a garage to fit a multitude of cars. If you are on the market for a new home, there will be plenty of garages large enough depending on your collection. There are even car dealerships that will allow you to showcase your car in exchange for storing it. You will have to reach out to a few but with a rare car, there should be at least one car lot that jumps at the opportunity. You would much rather your car be in a showroom than a hot garage or outside being exposed to the elements.
Construct Metal Buildings for Your Cars
You might have extra property around your home that can be used to help store the cars. Construction of a metal shop building can be the answer to get your cars out of the elements. These buildings are reasonably priced and can help protect the investment you have in your cars. These buildings can also come in handy if you want a mechanic to come check out one of your vehicles.
Luxury Climate Controlled Storage
Luxury storage facilities do exist that are also climate controlled. This is an option for those with large car collections but the emphasis on security has to be paramount. You do not want to open your storage room to find your prized car missing without an idea of when this occurred.
Make Sure Your Cars Are Accessible
The point of having luxury cars that turn heads are to drive them. Simply allowing the vehicles to sit in a garage can lead to damages and fluids congealing in the engine/transmission. Set a schedule of what cars you will be driving on specific days to make sure all are driven at least once per month or more. This doesn’t mean that you have to pack the miles on the engine but rather just get the engine running for a while.
Owning a luxury car collection needs to be taken on with responsibility. Being reactive can lead to extensive repairs that might cost more than a car is actually worth. Start building your collection today but keep in mind where you are going to put all of your new cars.
