A friend of mine has had a poor experience storing his car - he's looking for an alternative in the West Berks area.

Can anyone recommend somewhere that offers good service?

Cheers

I've been using the guys at Autofarm for a few years now.

Never had any issues,rates seem pretty competitive also

Winter before last I stored my 911 for the winter with Richard Thorne Classic Cars who are just south of J11 off the M4, south of Reading. No problems at all. About £110 a month

I used these guys for a few months while moving house, had no issues and the prices were reasonable

I have been to but not used Dunt Barn, very impressive, but expensive

Hoffmans in Henley on Thames, though more south oxon than west berks.

Wrightune in Wallingford were moving to new bigger premises and were going to offer storage, but not sure what's happened about that.

Probably too far away from you (Andover), but a friend uses this company and is happy with the service provided:

Not far from GT Classics - so you could buy a 993 RS and drop it off with them for storage.... Smile
