Be VERY Careful Who You Choose To Transport Your Car

Since we store cars, it’s only natural that we interface quite often with transport companies. Sometimes customers self select transporters to have their car retrieved and sometimes we receive them for short or long holds. We also do business with a fantastic transport company out of Connecticut called A-AAA Auto Transport. Send Ian a message for a transport quote if you need a solid broker! Auto Transport can be a nasty business. Lots of brokers and truckers and only a…

Don’t Waste Your Money On An OEM Trickle Charger

Many of our customers will want to bring in their own trickle chargers so that we can actively charge their car’s battery rather than disconnecting them. This is important for higher-end cars as they have more computers. Those computers need constant flow of the proper voltage. Choking that voltage by battery disconnect COULD cause warning lights and the car to misbehave in minor ways the next time you drive it. However, you don’t need to break the bank to ensure…

More Electric Car Storage Tips – The Chevy Volt

We’ve stored a few Chevrolet Volts in the past. This is our first one of the new generation though…a very nice improvement over the outgoing first gen. You can watch all sorts of reviews here. But I wanted to make light of some of the storage modes on the car…yes it actually has modes for storage… The volt is a great in-between solution for the aspiring electric car owner with a bit of range anxiety: the car is driven by…

Make Sure You Do This When Storing Your Tesla

We’ve had quite a few electric cars come through our doors now. One volt had even been stored with us for two years with no fuss. We’d like to think we have these electrics figured out but we had a surprise with two Teslsas (oddly at the same time) while in our care. The Key fob had gone completely dead. These keys are expensive so you could imagine our panic, thinking we were going to have to buy two new…

Go to the South OC Cars and Coffee!

I decided to wake up at the buttcrack of dawn, clean my car and park it at the Outlets in San Clemente this past weekend. I am really glad I did. This is the cars and coffee for people who love everything. New Ferraris, Armored Cars, Off Roaders, Imports…everything. Best of all the owners are all super approachable and love their vehicles…no pretense, no snobbery. This is a weekly show on Saturdays from 7-9.

We Made More Room!

I know its been a while since we’d last updated our blog. We undertook an extensive project to re-purpose some of our warehouse space for more cars! Over the past 2 months we demo’d a food processing plant at our Otay location. We now have an extra 10,000 square feet in which to house more civilian and military member’s cars and trucks. Heres a short video of us dropping the final vent ducts for clearance. A post shared by AAAA…

Legendary and Iconic: Ford GT For Sale by Owner!

We MOSTLY store normal pedestrian cars. Some classics…and fewer exotics. However this one is rarefied air. The Ford GT is a throwback car. Its done in the spirit of the Ford GT40: The famous car that Carroll Shelby drove in the 1966 LeMans race. The 3 GT40s fielded beat all three of the comparable Ferrari’s. This was sweet revenge for Ford as Ferraris owners had backed out of an acquisition deal a few years earlier. As a matter of fact…
