I am a licenced mechanic who works at this shop. We are a family owned and operated buissness. We refused to work on dave waghorns vehicle as he would not allow us to fix it correctly and safe. I have morals. If he kills someone and or himself on the road I'm not responsible. If you want your vehicle fixed the right way you know where to come. Good work isn't cheap and cheap work isn't good.

About us

In 1994 Dan and Jen Verellen started a family orientated Country Style Quality Fully Licenced Automotive Heavy Duty Diesel Repair Facility MTO Licenced Repair Shop.
It was nothing for the Verellen Family Siblings to be out in the shop til early morning hours, tinking, designing, and mechanically repairing absolutely anything- from a push mower lawnmower running on moonshine, Rebuilding Airplanes, Fabricating for a Fabrication shop in Blenheim, Ontario, Drag Trucks and Cars, Motor-Cross but Dan’s passion for Dodge Charger’s were empathized at the age of 13, when his parents told him to sell his First Used Vehicle , 69 Dodge Charger (they were afraid he would kill himself) so he bought a Race Bike. A Severe Dirt Bike Accident left him in a Coma with a Head Injury , he quickly moved Back onto HP and Torque. At 18 we made a Custom made Jabbet( a mating of a 84 Jetta Diesel with 79 rabbit front end , giving a peppy paint job with colours picked out by Jen (Cranapple red with Metallic flakes and a pink stripe down the side like the Mopar 1968 Dodge Challenger T/A she always dreamed of. Dan being the 3rd in a 5 person family band, found his mechanical aspiration at a young age of 3 always fixing broken toys , Managing on the Farm- Sow to finishing Pigs/Crops while Dad was off Flying for Various Businesses .Dan Apprenticed/Licenced at a Ford Dealership, Moving on to working at Navistar as a Certified Back Shop Heavy Duty Mechanic overseeing and repairing daily engineering problems on Semi-Trucks before they go out to dealerships.
Dan & Jen are high school sweet hearts and are inseparable, Destiny brought them together. Married in 1988 , Dan 18 Jen 16. . We work together, play together, 24/7 we are each other’s best friend, Dan is Jen’s World and vise versa. How many people after 30 years marriage and working together everyday can say this!
In 1990 , we had our first Service Technician, by age 3 Josh had already mastered Soldering and a 50cc Dirt Bike , 1992 We welcomed Jacob , our Licenced Heavy Duty Specialist.
Did we think our children would come work for the family business? No, just hoping. We did not want to deter them in finding themselves, and the dreams and accomplishments they want out of life. No REgrets!
Tools are bank draining - All vehicles require at least One specialized tool that costs as much as the car itself. Specializing in one vehicle is commendable , specializing in all the vehicles, some say are crazy, but We tackle the tough jobs. to do the job correctly ,, you have to have the skill, knowledge and tools to do a professional job efficiently.
Peoples perspectives, values . We all have different opinions, find a repair shop/customers that works with you.
We personally don’t like piecing parts together, (snowball effect) it’s a bad business practice. We do the job correctly, not cheaply. It’s our Name that will be tarnished! not the fact that we saved you 100$ in repairs. If it’s done right no complaining and I don’t see you again for the same issue. Your Happy, I’m Happy.
