Hope Valley Service Center
Hope Valley Service Center Inc. (aka a variety of similar #Names) is a small auto repair shop in Durham, NC. They have been in business, managed by the same family, since at least the late 1970s. They used to also sell gas (Mobil at first, then Exxon), but discontinued this in June or July 2020. The insurance alone was reportedly costing them over $10k per year, and gasoline sales had become negligible.
Services include (this is anecdotal, so contact them directly to confirm):
- Tires: install, balance, rotate, repair
- Minor engine work, e.g. replacing coolant hoses
Details of note:
- No appointment is required.
- They work on both domestic and foreign cars.
- They have a semi-public air-pump, but it can be a little difficult to access.
- ...although this seems to have improved since they stopped selling petrol, as usage of the filling-up areas for storing vehicles has reduced parking congestion.
