The Vehicular Sciences Lab is a one of our most popular departments. We have a hoist that can support most vehicles and a large assortment of support tools and machinery.

The VSL exists for you to work on your projects. We do not fix vehicles here, but we are more than happy to teach you how to use the hoist and other tools. If you use the hoist, we also make sure that the vehicle is properly seated and will be safe while you work on it.

Due to the nature of the VSL, there are some additional costs.

Workspace Fees

HOIST: $20 for 4 hours or $50 for the day

CAR BAY: $20 for the day

PARKING LOT: No additional charge

Storage Fees

IF YOU HAVE WORKED ON YOUR CAR THAT DAY: No additional fee

IF YOU HAVE NOT WORKED ON YOUR CAR THAT DAY: $10 every night

INDOORS: $25 every night

Cleanup & Fluids

We require that at the end of your timeslot or the day, whichever comes first, that you clean up your area, put the tools back and dispose of any and all liquids that you removed. Failure to do either or both of these things will result in a $50 fee. If you need assistance in cleaning up, just ask us!

Friends & Helpers

If your project requires an extra set of hands and you want to bring somebody in, you are more than welcome to do so. As long as the extra person(s) are over age 16 and have signed the waiver they are welcome to work on your vehicle project with you for free. They do not need to be an existing member. If they want to work on an unrelated project, they will need to purchase a membership or a day pass.
