Default VIN inspection GJ to Glenwood Springs

I need some recommendations and was hoping you all could help. My boys (4 & 5) and I will be in the area tomorrow maybe tonight and need a VIN inspection to register our 80, the county where it's going to be registered does not do them. Is there a recommended dealer or any LE officers on here whiling to help? I believe I have all the required forms.

The police station in Avon do it. Not between GJ and Glenwood, but perhaps any Police station in CO will???

That's what I was thinking, but my understanding is it the vehicle needs to be registered in the county office it's going to be parked/garaged(Garfield) and because of our lack of time I was hoping for Grand Junction to Glenwood because the offices are in Rifle and Glenwood.

I think all police and sheriff can legally do them. Now whether or not any random officer you ask will, I dunno. You'll probably have to call and go to an office. State Patrol can do them, too. In the Front Range all Air Care Colorado emissions stations can do them as well as some independent inspection stations.

When I had a problem w/ a prior 55 I had to go to the State Patrol.
The out of state title I got from the seller had an extra "0" inserted, so it did not match the VIN on the frame.

What you had I think was a VIN title certification, which is not the same as a VIN verification (e.g. just stating that everything matches). I believe only the State Patrol can do the certification.

Drive to any city with mandatory emissions testing. Colorado Air Care Inc. does VIN inspections for $15. These places are all over Denver and surrounding counties.

Sounds about right.

I might be able to do it for you. Let me check if its any Certified Police Officer or an officer tied to the agency issuing the certificate. I did them as a Deputy Sheriff in Weld, but haven't done any as a Parole Officer. Oops sorry didnt understand your location until I re-read post.

They (you) have to be certified by DMV. Normally that's the State Patrol, and only by appointment at certain stations. Nearest place to Denver is the State Patrol barracks in Golden.

It is somewhat ironic that Are Care places also have certified inspectors, who don't know a VIN from a smog pump...
