What Our Customers Say About Us

Derek and Scott took such good care of us and our 1974 VW Beetle. The respect and care they showed our beautiful old girl is second to none. They went over her with a fine-tooth comb, and fixed her up. Don't hesitate bringing your vehicle to them. We couldn't be happier.
Liz Carter
This shop is very busy for a reason- they do great work! Derek and his team were tenacious in locating and repairing 3 separate oil leaks. Professional, honest, friendly and committed to getting the job done right. Couldn't ask for anything more. 10/10.
Phil Poirier
Excellent service and attention. Derek and crew are always willing to go that extra mile.

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.
