How does Dream Garage work?

Members use the Dream Garage app to request their next vehicle, including when and where they would like the next vehicle. A Dream Garage concierge will deliver the fresh vehicle, transfer everything over to your new car, and ensure you’re all set to go. Our goal is to ensure you have the perfect car for any occasion.

What is included in a Dream Garage subscription?

Every Dream Garage subscription includes rights to a vehicle, insurance coverage, and hand delivered flips. The Dream Garage concierge team delivers hand detailed vehicles to wherever you request. We take care of all maintenance and repairs so you can focus on driving.

How long can I keep a vehicle?

As long as you want! 

There are no restrictions on how long or how short your flips can be. Occasionally, when a vehicle has been with a member for many weeks, we might need to ask for it back so that we can do routine tasks like preventive maintenance. However, at worst we’ll flip you into a fresh vehicle that is just like the one you have.

In practice, most members flip several times a month and enjoy doing so!

How new are the vehicles?

Starter tier vehicles are the current or prior model year. Each vehicle is detailed before and after it ever goes to a member. Many of our members tell us that every vehicle feels new!

How well equipped are the vehicles?

The majority of vehicles are equipped with a mid to high-end trim package. Most of our vehicles have leather seats. Other options vary by make/model and specific vehicle. We cannot guarantee the availability of certain options.

Are pets allowed in vehicles?

We do allow pets in the vehicles, but they must be transported in a crate. It is better for the car and safer for your furry friend!

Our goal is that you will never have to worry about maintenance or repair issues. If something unforeseen occurs, use the Dream Garage app to notify us and we will get you back driving!

First, make sure that everyone is safe, get your vehicle to a safe place, exchange information with the other parties and notify the police. Once the situation is stabilized, call us at 205-378-0772. We will bring you a fresh vehicle and handle everything with respect to the vehicle involved in the incident. 

How much advance notice is required for a flip?

While we ask for a 3-hour notice, the best experience is to book a few days in advance.

Booking a vacation? Go ahead and book your flip too. Need something this afternoon? Don't stress, we will bring you the best option available.

Do I tip the concierge?

Dream Garage does not allow tipping. Concierge delivery is part of the overall Dream Garage member experience and included with the monthly subscription. If you have an exceptional Concierge experience feel free to reflect it in the service rating or by letting the team know.

Pricing & payment

Pricing and Payment

Where can I find the insurance card?

View a digital version of your insurance card under Your current ride on the home screen of your Dream Garage app. Hard copies of the insurance card can also be found in the glovebox.

What about fuel?

All Dream Garage cars are delivered with a full tank of gas. If you flip a vehicle without a full tank, your concierge will refill the vehicle and add the charge to your account following your flip.

When is payment due?

A valid credit card is required during sign up. Your first payment will be charged when we confirm delivery of your first vehicle. Subsequent payments will be charged on a monthly basis, in advance. Any additional charges for gas or upgrades will be charged as soon as the flip ends.

What is the minimum commitment to Dream Garage?

Dream Garage is a monthly subscription service. Pay for the first 31 days and give it a try. If you like it, your subscription will renew automatically monthly after the first period. If you ever want to cancel, just let us know and we will end your subscription after your current month has expired.

Can I move between the different plans?

Yes, members can move between plans at any time. Your monthly subscription fee will be prorated. We require that members moving to a lower rated plan have been on their current plan for at least one month.

Can I pause my subscription?

Yes. Going out of town? Love Dream Garage but need a break? Just pause your Dream Garage account and have one less monthly bill covering something you're not even using. No lease or loan allows that! Pause your Dream Garage account for any number of days for a $200 convenience fee. Then pick right back up where you left off for no additional charge!
