Historically a commercial garage would offer storage, refueling, servicing, and repair of vehicles. Since the mid-late 20th Century, storage has become uncommon at premises having the other functions. Now refueling, servicing, and repair are becoming increasingly separated from each other. Few repair garages still sell petrol; it is very uncommon for a new filling station to have a mechanic or any facilities for servicing beyond inflating tires; and a new kind of business exists to provide servicing: the oil/lube change shop.
