Our Story

We're suppliers and installers of the worlds finest Volkswagen Accessories.

Family Owned and Operated, Red Seal Technicians, Volkswagen, and Audi Professionals, Reliable, friendly family-oriented. We are here to keep you on the road.

Hi! Jeff Hogue here! I've been a professional automotive technician for more than 30 years, it comes naturally to me. I feel very comfortable under the hood of any Volkswagen or Audi, not to mention my personal passion of Vanagons...Whether it's the latest model still under warranty or an air cooled jewel, I speak the language. I've owned more than a dozen Westfalia's even Syncro's. I've done it all. Tune ups, brakes, to syncro and TDi conversions.

When you call, you usually get Lesa, she knows my schedule better than anyone here. If you need to leave a message, we check our voice mail quite regularly We have a passionate staff, besides myself, my son Zach Andrew, Derek and Lesa are here to serve you as well.

Appointments are always best, the ideal situation would be to bring your car, drop it off the day before and pick it up when it's finished. But we do our best to accommodate what ever schedule that works best for you. I generally don't work evenings or weekends but I have been known to start work early in the morning. So if your car is here by 8am It'll likely get started by 8am.
We love what we do, we’re great at it, and be rest assured we can handle anything your vehicle needs.

Our Services

We use an industry standard formula to calculate labour cost per job, not per hour. All costs are kept competitive, OEM parts or equivilant. By equivialant, I mean some aftermarket parts are all that are available now, especially for older VWs. But be rest assured I won't install any part on your vehicle that I wouldn't install on my own vehicle.

We don't install customer supplied parts, for several reasons. First of all we can't control the quality and we protect our great reputation by making sure the best parts available are on your vehicle. Second, our business model requires 2 income sources in order to be successful, so if we remove the profit from the part sale, we need to charge more for the labour portion to meet the target to keep our bills paid.

Some jobs are easy to quote, like timing belt replacement, scheduled services and oil changes, just to name a few. Other jobs like engine conversions, fabrication, even a thorough brake job often can't be quoted as accurately, I will do my best to keep all repairs and services in a reasonable budget. As always your vehicle has the last word on the cost.

I've been in this industry a long time, more than 30 years, I know what it takes to fix your car or van without cutting corners, and I'll keep you in the 'loop' so you won't be surprised by the bill.
