About Virginia Automotive Service

Virginia Automotive Services has been a family owned and operated Auto Repair Center servicing Richmond and Tri-City Areas since September 1978. As a member in Good Standing with the Better Business Bureau and an AAA Approved auto repair shop, our ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified Technicians are able to handle both major and minor general repairs and services on both foreign and domestic vehicles.

From a basic oil change to a complete engine or transmission replacement, the professional staff at Virginia Automotive Services can handle all auto service needs. We are also a licensed Virginia State Inspection Station.

We are able to deliver the benefits of an established Napa national entity while maintaining the personal touch of a family owned business. Parts and Labor are backed by the best warranty with up to 3-years/36,000 miles. We offer Free Shuttle Service, Free Loaner Cars, several financing options and Free Coffee for waiting customers.

Our team specializes in many different types of vehicles, and since they work on a wider variety of vehicles than their dealer counterparts, their overall expertise is greater, too. By working on many makes and models, our technicians can be trusted to properly diagnose challenging repairs and other issues. As automotive technology advances, our team is continually updating their education & skills.

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.”

"Not as fast as I would like it to be but great service"
"These guys are awesome! So nice and very accommodating. I came in for a safety inspection and they were able to take my car back with very little wait time. It ended up needing a few things worked on, so they had a loaner car ready for me to use until my car is finished. Great customer service!"
"I stopped in with a nail in my tire. They came recommended from a satisfied coworker. They jumped on the repair and had me down the road quick. Friendly and professional staff. Highly recommended."
"Very personable, friendly, & knowledgeable. > 30 years of experience, also located at a very convenient, good location. Good mechanic, nice lot. For a local, small businness, this place has everything to offer."
"Jeff Davis is littered with mechanic shops and car dealerships. Virginia Automotive is one of the most expensive places to get your car serviced in the area. It's not a state of the art facility. It's just like every other worn down shop in the area, but they sport a NAPA banner and they do a heck of a lot of marketing. Unlike many of the automotive service places scattered up and down Jeff Davis, they charge a premium on parts and they don't allow you to bring your own parts like many of the other Service centers. So, buy your own part and go to any of the other automotive locations found on Jeff Davis. I've tried them on multiple occasions and I have always been disappointed. You'll never get a deal here. If it looks too good to be true, it is (ex: cheap parts, etc)."
"Chris was excellent in customer service, he made my experience worth my time and travels. I could recommend this company solely based on the professionalism of Chris thanks a lot again."
