- No dealer transactions processed at any of our branch offices during the lunch hours of 12:00pm – 2:00pm. You may continue to come in after the 2:00 pm cut off time however if wait times are extensive due to staffing levels walk-in services may be cut.

- You may still choose to drop any amount of dealer, financial institution, or title service transactions at any time during our office hours and it will be processed and ready for your pick-up within 48 to 72 hours. The Altamonte Springs Dealer Section turnaround time can range from 72 to 96 hours, due to heavy volume.
- Effective November 4, 2019 Towing & Storage and Labor & Storage transactions are NO longer processed over the counter at any of our locations. The paperwork must be dropped, and it will be ready for your pick-up within 48 to 96 hours.
Our goal is to provide our commercial accounts with good customer service, while acknowledging our responsibility to provide equal timely service to all our other walk-in customers. We believe our dropped dealer work turn-around, generally within 24 to 48 hours, and occasionally at the 72-hour standard, is unequaled in the surrounding counties that are willing to process your transactions.
