Hi Steve, I want to sign up for the month but I have this one job requiring curing a transmission drain plug thread just for 24hours so I cannot move the car after the installation. Is there a way for me to do this?

Willing to pay one overnight charge if there is.

Thanks

Hi Marco, No problem at all. We do a $20 overnight storage fee. Just plan what day with the front office staff so we can reserve the bay in the system and go for it.

Thanks, Steve T.

I do mobile mechanic work on the side from my normal job would I be able to rent a space and work on different vehicles throughout the day there?

Hi Mike, for sure you can do that. You can secure a dedicated space in our fenced rear yard to keep customer vehicles and work on them in the shop. Not sure if you have come by for a free tour yet, but i would suggest you do so anytime its convenient for you. Thanks, Steve

Hi, I am just asking. What if I just want to work on my car, like changing oil and changing the shock. And I just want to come here at 9 am and leave at 2 pm, how much does it cost?

Steven Trindade

HI Jonathan, Thank for the note. The shortest duration membership is one month at $199. The price goes down for 6 month ($175) or 12 month terms ($150). Once a member you can come and go as you please to do any projects you desire. We also have 5 lifts, 2 regular bays, and engine and gearbox build area, tire machine and balancer, waste oil and coolant collection, and tons of other auto specific tools. Hope that helps. Thanks, Steve
