Stu­dio 434 ex­pands

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The Hert­ford­shire mu­seum and clas­sic ve­hi­cle stor­age fa­cil­ity Stu­dio 434 is to open a £5 mil­lion new-build site close to its orig­i­nal Pot­ters Bar cen­tre.

This will cre­ate 200,000sq ft of space for 400 cars and mo­tor­cy­cles. En­trepreneur Richard Dud­ding has op­er­ated Stu­dio 434 for seven years.

He tells CCW: ‘I have been in the clas­sic car col­lec­tion busi­ness for more than 40 years and the de­mand for our ser­vices since we launched the stor­age fa­cil­ity has al­ways ex­ceeded sup­ply. The con­sis­tent growth in the clas­sic car col­lec­tion here is re­flec­tive of in­creased disposable in­come by a wide seg­ment of the pop­u­la­tion and that is fur­ther en­hanced by the cur­rent abysmal re­turns for their money in the bank.’

Stu­dio 434 charges £45 a week per ve­hi­cle with a min­i­mum of three months stor­age. All ve­hi­cles are kept on trickle charge and fully covered if re­quired, and can be taken out for an ex­er­cise run ev­ery eight weeks on re­quest. The busi­ness has in-house en­gi­neers for ba­sic ve­hi­cle checks and rou­tine servicing.

Stu­dio 434’s new stor­age fa­cil­ity un­der con­struc­tion.
