My overall experience with HMC Garage has been nothing short of perfect. While dealing with my various automotive issues, they were very respectful of existing knowledge I had on the issue, they did not try to push repairs that I said I could do on my own, and they seemed very happy with simply being my go-to in case I had any issues or questions. I had a situation too where I was unable to get my car for an extended period of time, because of my work schedule, and they called me to inform me that they typically charge a storage fee for vehicles like mine that stay for a while, but if I picked it up that day they would let it slide. This situation just goes to show that they are very patient, understanding, and caring for their customers and are not out for every penny. I am pleased with them, and definitely recommend. They will remain my go-to going forward.

We were a night away from beginning an extended road trip to Bellingham from SW New Mexico. The time frame was cut short by loud grumbling from the front end of our 1997 Eurovan camper which local mechanics had not been able to resolve. Knowing Bellingham has many more Eurovans than New Mexico, we made an appointment at HCM for three days later. We practically drove non-stop, nursing to get there in hopes that the shop would be as good as its recommendations. It was. They diagnosed each problem we specified and took care to complete the extensive, though not as expensive as we had feared, project in time for us to enjoy our stay with family and friends and then get safely back on the road. No further problems with front end since. We were quite pleased with HMC Garage. They even gave us a good recommendation for a mechanic much closer to home who has been just as good. Thanks Amelia and crew.

On a recent trip to Bellingham my 1968 Volkswagen bus broke a clutch cable. Thankfully I found HMC garage. Every other garage I called refused to help me, citing that my car was too old. HMC worked me into their schedule and got me back on the road in a timely manner. Thank you for being so Awesome!

Paul and Jennifer’s passion, expertise, and honesty are evident in the way they approach every vehicle that comes through the doors of their shop. I know my car is in the best possible hands and trust them completely! They make the best recommendations for safety and comfort at a fair price.

We have had Paul work on our Volkswagen cars and have been impressed by the quality of his work. Paul is honest, trustworthy and easy to work with in any situation. We look forward to working with Paul at HMC Garage for all our future Volkswagen needs!

We made a decision to bring our VW bug (Sprout) down from Alaska to HMC in Bellingham to be worked on, and it was the best decision we could have made. We brought in an old bug with so many issues, and left with a smooth running, safe vehicle. We couldn't be more happy with everything HMC did for us. Thank you from Jimmy, Cindy & Sprout.

After having to jury rig the throttle cable on my ‘72 Super Beetle back to functionality when it busted on a trip from Whidbey to Bellingham, Paul got me in first thing and replaced it same day!! Not only was the auto work amazing, his wife drove me to McDonald’s to get something to eat! I highly, highly recommend this shop for your vintage VW needs! HMC Garage is definitely my new mechanic for my baby.

Over the last couple of years Paul has worked on my vehicles from small to larger jobs. Each time I have been more that pleased and he exceeded my expectations every time. I highly recommend them!
