Need an oil change? Tune up? A quick check of your brake system? Stop by Mickey’s Auto Repair to get some of the most thorough automotive service in the Columbia, SC area. We offer several automotive services, from basic check-ups to full tune ups and repair services.

And when you stop by and have your car serviced, we have a comfortable waiting room with free Wi-Fi and helpful customer service staff. After any inspection a technician will go over everything we found and if repair work is needed, provide you with an estimate. Each item we find during a safety inspection is listed from most important to least important. Most important can be a safety issue, that needs to be addressed immediately and least important may include repairs a customer will never need to fix, depending on the circumstances. Some of the items listed, are simply a heads up for repairs needed at a future time. We strive for transparency, and we will make sure that you know exactly what is happening to your car and will never perform any repair work that hasn’t first been approved by our customer.

We accept scheduled maintenance and drop-offs, and you are welcome to stay or go about your day.

If you contact us today, our mechanics can work with you to understand the unique needs of your car, what kind of repairs and issues could arise in the future, and how often you should bring your car in for a tune-up. We want our customers to feel taken care of, and the best way we know how to do that is by taking care of their cars.

We Aren’t Rushing . . . We are Good

Satisfaction Guarantee

A One-Stop Shop

Honest Diagnostics

You may think that you get an excellent trade-off for time and money when you drive through with auto repair shops that promise to be quick. And that may work if you aren’t looking for the highest-quality service possible, and especially if you aren’t looking to establish a relationship with a mechanic for the long haul.

But what if you want to have a real mechanic help you take care of your car?

What if you want an expert that can help you not only fix a problem when it comes up, but help you set up a schedule for upkeep, so you avoid problems in the long run?

What if you want to have a car repair shop in your speed dial that knows your car and its history, and that you trust?

What if you are sick and tired of “mechanics” trying to upsell unnecessary repairs or services?

Then it sounds like you need a real local auto repair shop that can help you increase the lifetime of your car. One that you can trust to get the job done without all the bells and whistles. One that can fix the problems in your car quickly and will take the time to do the job right. One that is competitively priced. One that knows you by name. Like a doctor, the more complete your vehicle’s maintenance and work history is in one place, the easier it is for us to diagnose problems.

At Mickey’s we don’t rush. We work right, and we provide car repair that gets your vehicle on the road.
