About Us

Welcome to Platinum Auto Service Plus Inc. Founded and Incorporated 2008.

We want to be your one-stop-provider for all your automotive needs as much as you want to find a shop that you can trust with your vehicle. Helping customers learn about their vehicles, and what needs to be repaired/maintaned on them, is our main goal. When a vehicle is brought to our shop with a problem, we make sure to listen to the customers concerns, and address them as best we can. We use the latest tools and equipment when servicing your vehicle.

In late 2008, we opened our doors for business. We apply the experience that we have gained over the years (working in car dealerships and other automotive centers) into every vehicle that enters our shop. We are a NAPA AUTOCARE CENTER.

He worked his way from Apprentice Technician, to Master Technician, to Platinum Level (highest at the dealership for training, productivity and Customer Satisfaction Index) and Shop Foreman.
