About Us

About Us

Here at My Car Guy, we offer complete automotive repair and maintenance, glass replacement, auto.

Despite being a fairly new business, opening shop on October 29 in 2012, we have plenty of experience under our belts to give you the best service we can offer.

We service any vehicle, does not matter the make or model, if it fits under 9 1/2" clearance.

We make sure we talk to you first before doing any repairs or services to your vehicle. That way you are in control of what we do to your car.

Have important errands or tasks to run while your car is being serviced?  We can pick you up or drop you off at your convenience. Just gives us a heads up so we can get you on your way.

We also have a cozy lobby area, complete with hot and fresh coffee and hot chocolate, along with free WiFi.  In the office and lobby area, we have a private work station where you can get work done on your own laptop or you can use our computer. We want all of our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable from the moment they drive into our garage.

Our guests can pull up to our garage door, honk, drive in, and walk right into our office. They never have to get out of their car into the cold winter or the blistering heat of summer.

With every oil change, we do a complimentary check up on your vehicle. It is our goal to keep your car in a great condition, as well as keep you and your loved ones safe on the road.

We are a NAPA AutoCare Center, so your parts will have a 24,000 mile/2-year warranty at any NAPA AutoCare Centers nationwide. We are also AskPatty Certified Female Friendly.

We were featured at our local bank for business of the week.

If you ever have any questions or concerns about your vehicle, our business, or our services, feel free to give us a call or email us. We will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Why are we here now?

I wanted to have more control of our hours, balancing home and work. From all of my time in the field I have a particular vision of what I wanted for our guests to experience. Our mission statement says it all. We do not want our guests to feel any stress or hassles if they have a car problem. Our name was originated from our guests. They have referred me "My Car Guy" for years.
All BGG,

Jim, My Car Guy
