Up to 250 vehicles can fit into the lot at Alabama Airport Parking while they await their owners’ return to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport. The outfit, converted from a three-decade-old rental-car operation in 2004, safely tends to customers’ vehicles while they’re on holiday or scouring planes for SkyMall back issues to complete their collections. In addition to keeping cars safe and sound, the attendants perform extra services for additional fees, such as car washes and detailing so that cars are fresh for customers’ returns. The company also runs a parking-points program that awards frequent customers with points that can add up to free car washes or parking.
