We take applications for the Vehicle Resale Lot Monday through Saturday.  Please stop by our office and fill out the proper form to place your vehicle in the lot.  This is a great way to sell your car, truck, boat or motor home.  The fee is $20 per month.


CAR WASH  Keep your vehicle looking great at our new car wash.  Choose from the drive through, touchless bay or self serve bays, and don't forget to make a stop at our vacuum station.  Items to clean your vehicle and keep it smelling fresh are available for purchase inside the facility at our resale store. 



HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR FILTER LATELY?  Walk in to our new Auto Hobby Shop for a Quick oil change. We will conduct a safety inspection of your vehicle to insure all lights are working properly, horn, fluids are full (fees apply), and tire pressure is accurate.  For most vehicles, your wait will be less than 30 minutes.  Use our standard oil or choose from our available array of synthetic or premium oils. These services are performed daily, Monday - Saturday. Walk in and appointments are available. Most 5 quart and filter oil changes run $27.50, and $3 for each additional quart of synthetic blend.


FREE DROP OFF SERVICE! On Mondays, we offer a free drop off and pick up service. Bring your car over to get your oil changed and we will take you back to your home or office (on base only) and we will come back and pick you up when your vehicle is ready.
