Please note all Atlantic Express locations will STOP picking up vehicles with the title status "PENDING" effective immediately. Please verify before buying a car that the title is available.  Atlantic Express will not be responsible for any storage incurred due to lack of title availability.

If there is availability/space at an AEC location to pick up a pending titled vehicle, yard storage charges will begin on the day of receiving until the title is received. Currently, all vehicles which are stored in our lots awaiting titles will be charged daily storage starting tomorrow based on the attached PDF for corresponding branches.

This is a temporary action that will take effect on January 12th. As conditions start to improve in the future, policies will be updated.
