Once that is complete, customers place their key in the envelope and then place the envelope in a secure slot in our door. **Customers Please Note: Please remember to sign the service envelope so that we have permission to work on your vehicle. Vehicles will be serviced the next working day if dropped off in the evening or on the weekend.

We charge a small fee ($10 a day), to help cover vehicle maintenance, insurance, and repairs. All customers who use a loaner vehicle must have full coverage insurance. All of our loaner vehicles leave our business with a full tank of gas, so we ask that when customers return to pick up their vehicle that they fill up the loaner vehicle with gas and bring the receipt with them. This allows the next customer to experience the same privileges as they did.
