  • Please note: I use column lifts to lift your car. (Very safe!) Very low slung cars, for example Austin Healey or Nissan Skyline or cars with small wheels like the original mini or Ford Puma will not go on the lifts. Email me if in doubt: Prices given below are an indication only. Email me for an accurate quote.

  • Booking in:
  • Courtesy Car - now mandatory
    Note that in the “new” (since 2008) premises near Rugby we are out in the sticks and there are no buses so we will not accept your booking unless you also book the courtesy car (unless you want to go for a walk along the canal all day or you have someone to pick you up). You can borrow our Peugeot 208 quicksilver supermini estate, 2 litre diesel, manual) as a courtesy car and have a great day out exploring Warwickshire while we rustproof your vehicle. Make sure you have a good browse of our attractions pages.
  • The courtesy car is not insured by me. If you have a comprehensive policy on your own car it usually covers you to drive other vehicles third party. This is fine with me, on the understanding that you will pay for any damage you cause to my car of course. If you don't want to take the risk you can get comprehensive day cover here for £20. Reg. no. KV05 JYN. The car has green flag breakdown cover (in the glove compartment).
  • Confirming your booking

    Once you have booked in, to confirm your booking you will need to send a cheque for £100 (made out to Chris Parkinson) for the Before 'n' After improved waxoyl treatment or the CR coating, together with a signed, printed off copy of the terms and conditions (both treatments) click here . A form with text in blue font will come up after you have completed filling in the diary and booking form to remind you and give you the address to send them to. (The address is also at the top of the first page of the terms and condtions). When I receive your cheque, I will send you a receipt and confirmation and a 23 page information pack telling you how to get here and what you can do when you are here. In spring 2018 I put up a huge amount of information on this website about what you can do while we rustproof your vehicle. Click on the attractions page here.

  • Please note: You do not need to send a covering letter with your cheque - just put the date of your booking and your telephone numbers on the back of the cheque. If we do not receive your cheque within two weeks, your booking will be cancelled (but if you can't make it please let us know as quickly as possible anyway). Many people no longer use cheque books. You can do a bank transfer for the deposit. If you do, please print off a copy of the transaction and enclose it with your terms and conditions or email me a screenshot.
