Place a reservation by phone or by using the form below.

If using the reservation form we should reply to your request (so use a monitored email address) within 24 hours to let you know whether or not there is availability. We will do our best to ensure there is a bay ready and waiting for you at the time you request.

However – due to the nature of automobile maintenance and do it yourself repairs, once wrenching begins there’s no telling how long a particular repair or modification may take, therefore there’s no way to logistically block out a unit of time and assume the task will take as long as is counted on.

What this means is this: We don’t want to rush our customers into trying to get out of a bay because someone has it reserved behind them and we don’t want to put off customers who may have reserved a bay later in the day only to be pushed back because a repair went awry earlier and caused an overrun in the length of time to finish. Β All gearheads know things go right and things go wrong. Being a self-serve, DIY garage sometimes things go VERY wrong and all that we ask for is some understanding when that happens and know that we’ll do our best to get you in as soon as we can.

ON THE FLIP SIDE – if you’re not here within twenty minutes of your reservation time we reserve the right to offer your bay to the next customer in line. We’re not asking for much, just be here when you say you’re going to be and all is good. If you’ve run into problems and are going to be late just give us a call or drop an email to let us know. Communications is king. πŸ˜‰

The only other requirement we have is that you wear closed toed shoes – no flip flops or anything of that nature. Nobody wants to cap off a day of wrenching by losing some toes!

Bay Reservation Request

  • Please give us a legit, monitored email account. We don't sell information nor spam you but we might need to contact you in regards to your reservation request.
  • Needed in case we need to contact you for short fuse situations where a bay might not be available due to earlier reservations. Especially handy if your email address isn't legit or not checked frequently.
  • Let us know what type of bay you're needing. Either bay type comes with all tools and equipment included except the AC machine. Flat bays come equipped with jacks and jack stands and we have more of both stationed around the shop.
  • License plate number and state of registry of the vehicle being worked on; this simply helps us make check-in a faster experience. Ex: "OU812 VA"
  • We'll be closed on the 31st and the 1st for New Year's Eve and Day shenanigans - but ready and rarin' to go on Monday the 2nd! 😊
    MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • :
    Let us know when you'd like to come in, keeping in mind our hours:
    Mon-Fri 12PM-7PM and Sat-Sun 10AM-7PM
  • Just a best guess on how long you think you'll need the bay. We use this info to help schedule reservations.
  • Do you need the use of the AC machine? Is your car especially low? It can be handy to know what you're going to be doing during your visit in case we need to use a particular lift or make sure we've got additional personnel on-site.
  • Are you coming in from somewhere outside the Tidewater region? Richmond? D.C.? Rocky Mount? Charleston? Atlanta? Harrisburg? Denver? (All legit places we've had people come from, except for that last) Let us know where you're coming from so we can ensure expectations. If you're not, just leave 'er blank. 😊
  • If this is your first time requesting a bay reservation we'd love to hear how you found out about us! If you remember, anyway πŸ˜‰
