About

BEFORE WE BUILT OUR STELLAR REPUTATION, WE BUILT OUR COMPANY ETHOS OF EXCELLENCE THROUGH SERVICE.

Advanced Autowerks was founded in 2002 by Rand Hoffman and his team, who set out to demonstrate that an auto repair shop could provide a quality experience that people would love. More than a decade later, and he’s proven his point. Customers are now great friends, neighbors are great advocates, and we’ve acquired rave reviews and five star ratings along the way. We pride ourselves in providing every customer with an experience that not only makes them want to come back to our shop, but also to recommend our work.
