Why Choose Dehumidified Car Storage? Protecting Your Classic and Supercars

Preserving Excellence with Auto Classica Storage

Dehumidified car storage stands as the pinnacle of vehicle preservation, offering an unparalleled environment that shields your classic car or supercar from the detrimental effects of time and fluctuating conditions. At Auto Classica Storage, we specialize in providing this optimal storage solution, ensuring your vehicle remains in pristine condition, regardless of the season.

The Importance of Controlled Humidity and Temperature

  1. Humidity Control: The term "humidity" is pivotal when discussing car storage. Excessive moisture in the air can lead to corrosion, wood rot, and mould growth. By maintaining a constant relative humidity (RH) level between 40% and 60%, dehumidified car storage facilities like ours prevent these issues, protecting your vehicle’s integrity.
  2. Temperature Regulation: Extremes of temperature can be just as harmful as incorrect humidity levels. Our climate-controlled environment avoids the damage caused by both dry heat and extreme cold, ensuring materials like leather, rubber, and metal remain unaffected.
  3. Condensation Prevention: Condensation occurs when the air temperature drops below the dew point, leading to moisture forming on surfaces. Our dehumidified storage meticulously controls this, reducing the dew point to prevent condensation, thus safeguarding your car from rust and mildew.

The Science Behind Our Storage: Dew Point, RH, and Desiccant Dehumidifiers

Understanding the dew point and RH is crucial in car storage. Our goal is to maintain an environment where the RH is consistently between 50-55%, ideal for preventing metal corrosion and the drying out of leather and wood. To achieve this, Auto Classica Storage employs desiccant dehumidifiers. These units not only dehumidify but also introduce a gentle warmth that aids in keeping the vehicles dry and in perfect condition. The humidistat within our facility is set around 50%, ensuring the RH level is constantly monitored and maintained, making the care of your vehicle virtually automatic.

Why Dehumidified Storage is the Superior Choice

Choosing dehumidified car storage means opting for a solution that actively combats the environmental challenges posed to your vehicle. Whether it’s the fluctuating British weather from late October to March or the need to keep your car in a ready-to-drive state, our facility provides peace of mind and the following advantages:

  • Corrosion and Mildew Prevention: By stopping rust before it starts and preventing mildew growth, your car’s longevity and aesthetics are preserved.
  • Material Integrity: Ensures the materials your car is made from, including metal, leather, and rubber, remain in their original, untarnished state.
  • Ready to Drive: With our attentive climate control, your car is always in a ready-to-drive state, no matter how long you store it with us.
