In 1964, we opened our doors under the marquee “Victoria Automatic Transmission Service Ltd”. Our original location on Gorge Road serviced cars, boats, and even planes. Later, the shop was moved to Dupplin Road, where it remained for many successful years. Now, at our prime downtown location at Government and Chatham Street – 50 years, three generations, and a name change later – a lot has changed, but many things remain the same.
The unwavering commitment to outstanding customer service and high quality repair that this company was founded on remains at the cornerstone of all that we do today. At the same time, through innovation, we have been able to stay current in an industry that is constantly evolving. We are proud to have embraced concepts that are not only new to our company, but are considered to be at the forefront of the automotive industry as a whole. Leading the way in green automotive repair products and practices, and offering female friendly services such as our popular Ladies’ Auto Education events, has allowed us to reinvent ourselves over the years and offer something new to our community.
Thank you Victoria for your loyalty and support for half a century. We are so proud to be a part of this city and look forward to continuing to provide you with the Island’s best automotive service and repair for many years to come.
