Vehicle Storage Facility
Vehicle Storage Facility provides our customers with diverse services through regulation of for-hire transportation services, administering vehicle storage processes and disposal of unclaimed and abandoned vehicles through public auction as required by law.
The Vehicle Storage Facility operates on a twenty-four (24)-hour basis with administrative business hours Monday through Friday 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM; closed from 12:00 noon until 1:00 PM. Open on Saturday from 8:00 AM until noon; we are closed on major holidays. The Facility is closed on Sundays.
