Just ask JP J P Auto Repair has been in business a mere 6 years but has made a name for itself as one of the most reliable and economical independent auto repair shops in the Charleston and surrounding areas. Founded by John Porterfield, who is an ASE - Master Certified Technician with over 35 years experience in auto repair, restoring classic cars and professional racing. Our Business We are a family owned and operated business whose employees and families have worked and grown up in the Charleston area for many decades. WE strongly believe in employing not just mechanics or technicians, but grease monkeys. The term grease monkey is endearingly used in our profession to represent the inherent love for repairing cars. One of our major goals is for our customers to leave our garage with the safest car on the road as possible, without costing a fortune. We want our customers to be leery of "shade tree mechanics" and also the price gouging ways of the dealership repair shop. Service can be professional and found at a reasonable price at J P Auto Repair. Just ask someone that's been here ! If you still don't believe... J P Auto Repair also is the primary service shop for Enterprise Rental and Sales, Suddenlink Communications, Mountaineer Gas and many, many other local and national companies that NEED their fleet of vehicles on the road fast and inexpensively - which without would not have the success they have had.
