In 1994, the Elder family opened their first auto repair shop in Denver, Virginia Village Texaco, located on the corner of Florida Ave. and Holly St. Eventually outgrowing the original 3 bay gas station; a move to a larger 7 bay shop was made in 2005. Elder Auto opened on Asbury Ave. Again our business quickly grew and in 2013 it was time for a move to a larger auto repair facility with 15 bays. Today, our business continues to thrive, and we now offer an extensive range of automotive repair services at our new location at 5555 E. Evans Ave.
In addition to our expert auto repair service, we use only the products guaranteed to have the best performance ratings when servicing your vehicle. If you would like to learn more about our services including auto repair costs, and auto maintenance schedules, or would like to request an appointment, please give us a call and speak to one of our knowledgeable service advisors.
