In choosing antique car storage, consider this fact: most antique car storage facilities offer the same services. If that is, in fact, the truth, one should then turn one’s attention to the intangibles in choosing antique car storage or collector car storage, for it is the intangibles which really make all the difference.
Let’s talk about those intangibles, and then we invite you to call us at (817) 999-0980 if you have any questions. We are Fort Worth Car Storage, and after thirty years in the business we know all about vehicle storage.
Standard services in the car storage industry
When seeking car storage for antique cars, you will quickly notice that most storage facilities will offer topnotch security. Most will offer climate controlled car storage. Almost all will offer premium services in addition to the standard storage. And, quite frankly, because the Laws of Supply and Demand are what they are, most car storage facilities will be fairly close in price for all of these services. All of this means, of course, that choosing one facility over another is a bit like choosing one Bluebonnet over another in a field of Bluebonnets. It is practically impossible to tell one from another, so how do you choose?
Look at the intangibles in vehicle storage
The intangibles are a bit more difficult to find and gauge, but since we are discussing antique car storage, for a vehicle worth a small fortune, taking the time to find those intangibles is definitely worth the effort.
What is the reputation of the storage facility in the community? It does not take long for a bad reputation to spread. One ill-treated customers can take to social media and create a firestorm of bad press for any company. The same is true within the business community. All of this is to say it is worth the time to do due diligence and seek out the opinions of others in your city. The Better Business Bureau, the Chamber of Commerce, local car clubs, all will be useful and invaluable to you in these matters.
We are also of the opinion that in matters such as these, finding a locally owned and operated company is for the best. Your antique car is a huge investment. Trusting that investment to a company headquartered thousands of miles away just doesn’t make sense. Local people are more apt to go that extra mile to help locals. It is one of those intangibles which, at first, makes very little sense, but over time it bears fruit. Neighbors take care of neighbors. It was true in the 1850’s and it is true today. Work with a local company. They are much more apt to have your best interests at heart.
Does this extra investigatory effort take time? Most definitely! Is it worth it? You bet it is! Your antique car is worth the effort. You are worth the effort!
