We started Advanced Auto and Truck Repair in 1993. From a single lift shop nearly 20 years ago our reputation for honest, quality work has helped grow our business into a 7,000 square foot space with 8 lifts, state-of-the-art diagnostics and alignment machines and 8 mechanics and technicians.
One way of providing customer value is getting the job done right the first time. We have put together a team that will ensure that it's done right the first time around, every day. We are not a fly-by-night shop. With tenures ranging from 2 to 15 years, Advanced Auto and Truck has a knowledge base to be envied.
