Matt Allen was just 24 years old when he discovered Virginia Auto Service for sale on the corner of 7th Street and Virginia Avenue in Central Phoenix.  Although the building was boarded up and in need of many repairs, through Matt’s eyes, the shop looked like his lifelong dream come true. So with a little money, and a lot of elbow grease, Virginia Auto Service opened its doors. 

Over the last 20 years, Virginia Auto Service has weathered several storms including a devastating arson fire in 2004 that almost wiped them out.  Through it all, Allen has persevered and built a business that has won several awards and stands out as being one of the best auto repair shops in Phoenix. 

“If I would have known then, what I know now,” says Matt Allen, referring to the challenges of the past 20 years “I still would have opened Virginia Auto Service.”
