We’ve collected our favourite frequently asked questions and decided to blog them online for easy reading. The team at Advance Auto Repair love to answer all of our customer’s questions, and we even know why the chicken crossed the road. To fill up with Husky gas and get repairs at Advance Auto Service of course.

Q: Do you work on import vehicles?

A: We’re glad you asked. Our Red Seal technicians work on all makes and models of foreign and domestic vehicles.

Q: I just bought a car that’s not registered in BC and was told I need an inspection. Do you do car inspections?

A: Great question. Yes, we provide vehicle inspections as a designated inspection facility. With our inspection service you will receive a full legal report written by one of our red seal technicians. We also inspect any vehicle pre-purchase so you know exactly what you are buying. If you are selling your car, truck or SUV, providing potential buyers with our report can encourage the sale.

Q: What does Santa drive?

A: There was heated debate about this question among the Advance Auto Service team. Opinions ranged from the Subaru Forester AWD with heated seats, to an unidentified electric vehicle pulled by nine large ungulates.

Q: Can I get an estimate first before I get auto repairs done?

A: Yes. Another good question we are glad to answer here. Give us a call to discuss your particular needs, or pre-book an inspection and we can give you a solid estimate for repairs. There are times when you need vehicle maintenance, such as regular oil changes to keep your warranty valid and legal repairs such as having damaged headlights replaced or repaired so you don’t get ticketed. Our service advisor can give you an estimate before any work is started.
