French term or phrase: baie (de vidange, d'entretien, de service)
Hi, I am working on a text for an oil company regarding their service/petrol stations. They are offering various types of maintenance service such as oil changes, basic maintenance. I think the above expressions refer to the various parts of the petrol station/garage where these services can be performed, as follows:

Oil-change bay/area
Maintenance bay/area
Service bay/area

Could anyone confirm this or advise the correct meaning please?

Thanks & best wishes on this rather chilly November day (in the UK at least).
