The Staff at Virginia Automotive Services understands your vehicle is a major necessity, and that is why your vehicle will be tested as if it were our very own, no matter what type of repairs are needed.
But what sets Virginia Automotive Services apart from the other businesses is the compassion we feel towards people. When a van; full of girls; are trying to make their way to North Carolina for a dance competition broke down late on a Saturday afternoon; the owner and two mechanics stayed at the shop until midnight completing the repairs. They got the van back on the road and the girls came in 2nd in the competition.
With two convenient locations, Richmond and Glen Allen, Virginia Automotive Services continues to apply their theory which is "Honest, hard working efforts build loyal customers for a Lifetime." Let us help you make the most of your hard working dollars and bring your vehicles to Virginia Automotive Services, where you are not just another vehicle; you are "Our Customer and Friend."
