Here is some information about how Barry’s Garage got started and our philosophy.
Barry’s Garage started business in 2011 with the idea of meeting a need for a specialised vehicle storage service provided by an expert who knows and loves cars and bikes as much as their owners do.
“Special vehicles need special storage facilities and vehicle specific treatment” says Barry New, “plus they need to be prepared for use when their owners want to hit the road so WOFs, servicing and even things like the right tyre pressure all help to make that next drive or ride the enjoyable experience that you wish for”.
“I am used to driving, looking after and storing premium vehicles as well as “everyday cars and bikes”.
There really are no alternatives in Wellington apart from doing it yourself as “rent a storage unit’ providers do not store vehicles for insurance reasons, only furniture and belongings which doesn’t meet all of everyone’s needs.
Barry’s top tips for vehicle storage
Always connect a tool called a "battery optimiser" to your battery when storing your vehicle for more than 3 weeks. This trickles a charge into your battery, and at the same time discharges the battery to keep it in the same condition as if you were using the vehicle. We can supply you with the right optimiser for your battery.
