How to Look After Your Collectors Model Cars?

Model collectible cars and vehicles bring many avid collectors joy and nostalgia. It’s important to ensure you do what you can to keep them in great condition so that they remain collector’s items and more importantly retain value.

Here are a few tips to keep your die cast model cars in the best condition possible:

Avoid Sunlight

Always keep your model car collections away from direct sunlight as this can cause fading and damage the finish.

Keep them Cool

Keep your scale models somewhere which does not experience high temperature fluctuations. Places like the loft and garage can change temperate rapidly which could easily warp the body or damage the car’s finish.

Storage Location

We recommend using hard plastic cases or glass display cabinets to store cars where possible. These can help protect your cars from the effects of atmospheric conditions. It’s also important to choose a location which does not experience high humidity to prevent damage or warping.


Make sure limited editions or rare items are suitably insured. Get a specialist insurance broker to cover an entire collection to protect your investment in the event of an accident.
