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

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.

Hello Steve,

I need to work in my vehicle, however most of the time some parts are needed.

You realized that you need more parts after fixing by replacing part A, it is found that you also need to replace part B.

This can delay and could take weeks in some cases, and since the workshop already booked other customers to work in their own projects, it will be complicated to carry on with no traffic jam, if you know what I mean.

Do you have storage option to leave the vehicle at your workshop for more that a week?

Do you have a spaces available outside your workshop?

Is there a time “limit” to leave the vehicle at your workshop during the complexion of any work on it?

it is fair if you charged for storage!

Thank you

Leonard
