How We Store Your Car:
Cars are stored locked and indoors in our secure warehouse and are kept in running condition. Every thirty days fluid levels are checked and your car is started and run for at least 15 minutes. During this time all doors will be opened and the car is given a chance to “air out”, this lessens the likelihood of the car having a musty “been in storage“ odor at the end of the storage period. The car is moved within the warehouse to lessen the possibility that the tires will develop “flat spots”, and to help keep seals moist and the bearings and gears lubricated. We also check the air pressure in the tires to assure proper pressure. While the car is running the air conditioner and the heater are turned on. If at any time car will not start or has other problems, you will be notified. Before we deliver your car back to you we will make sure it’s freshly washed.
Climate controlled storage option:
Due to the extreme temperature ranges in Colorado we offer a climate controlled option for your vehicle. The temperature will remain between 60 and 85 degrees F. Additionally, the warehouse is equipped with humidity control, as here in Colorado, a lack of humidity in the air can cause leather vinyl and rubber seals to dry prematurely.
What We Do When We Accept your Car for Storage:
- Inspect the car inside and out noting any imperfections.
- Make a copy of your proof of ownership (copy of title and/or registration).
- Make a copy of your ID.

Extra Services Menu:
Oil & Filter Change.
Before your car comes out of storage and is delivered back to you, request an oil and filter change. We do not charge any markup on parts so you pay only actual cost, a receipt is provided. Labor charge: $25.00.
Storage is hard on your battery and it may not come back to full strength after prolonged storage. Most newer vehicles have programs running constantly in the background which runs the battery down quickly. Again, we do not charge any markup on parts so you pay only actual cost, a receipt is provided. Labor charge: $25.00.
Trickle charger or Battery Tender service.
Batteries can be expensive and with some vehicles only an authorized dealer may replace them in order to maintain the vehicles’ value.
Winter Tire installation and/or Tire replacement.
Colorado winter driving is a one of a kind experience. If you are making the long haul to Aspen or Breckenridge make sure your vehicle is ready.
Dust your Car and keep it covered to preserve your vehicle’s finish. NOTE: cover material is made of a Polypropylene material. If a different cover is desired we can order for you at an additional cost.
Depends on vehicle. Please call or e-mail for a quote.
