Auto-Watch

Vehicles don’t do well standing idle for long periods, tire flat spots, leaks or dead batteries can easily occur. We provide a check for signs of break-in damage or leaking fluids. We can take your car for a periodic warm-up drive, simply run the engine for (10) minutes or trickle charge the battery. Periodically moving vehicles that remain on your property also contribute to creating that “lived-in” look to your home.
