When a classic car has not been used in some time it may need recommissioning to make it roadworthy. Even when in a good environment, and in near perfect condition before storage, classic cars can deteriorate.
Apart from the obvious threats of rodents, moths and decay to fittings, safety can be compromised by the effects of condensation on tyres and electrics. We are experts in taking a car from long-term storage and preparing it safely for the road, or for resale.
In order to get the best price, you will need to make the most of its potential. Here at Pride & Joy we are experienced in the careful and detailed preparation of classic cars to maximise sales value.
Our expert restorer we will use his expertise to make the best of any quality car ready for resale – see our information on pre-sales services.
We can bring your newly-purchased car back to original standards. We will analyse its current condition and discuss with you the recommissioning required.
The business was established over ten years ago, providing a friendly and best value service to Jaguar, Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners. We are delighted to see all British Classics.

“I purchased my 1954 R Type Bentey thinking it was a good one but I was wrong. Without you and your capable staff the car would not now be such an enjoyable car to drive and own. The engine rebuild is making the car perform and sound as it did when new and the power steering was a great addition for driving such a large car (at my age). Many thanks for the work done by all at Pride & Joy.”
“Knowledgeable, professional and friendly service. Not the cheapest in town but they do the properly. I have owned my MGA for almost three years now and since pride and joy serviced it and set up the 123 electronic ignition (which nobody else seem to be able to do properly) it has run and started better than ever. They made every effort to get my old fuel gauge working properly and sorted out a tricky bad earth on an indicator lamp and even delivered the car back home to me.”
