About Us

A&J Automotive Repair Shop LLC is a full-service automotive repair and towing company serving the Greater Lynchburg & Central Virginia area. We work on standard and diesel engines, rebuild transmissions, offer tire and alignment services, and more. We have experienced and ASE certified technicians.

This business is family-owned and operated since 2019 by Joseph "Joey" Jerina, Allen McCormick, and William "Bill" Salsgiver. Joey had been a long-haul truck driver for 13 years, and intermittently through the years has held jobs in car sales, towing, and general auto repair. Allen had served his family’s repair and towing business for over 10 years as a tow-truck driver and mechanic. Bill owned and operated his own auto garage & transmission shop in Warren, OH following many years of working in other shops as technician, and holds an ASE Certification as an Automobile Technician. Alyxandria Jerina serves the business as the Operations Manager, and comes from an experienced background in customer service and business operations.

Entering 2020, we have grown to include four trucks for towing & service, three service bays (including lifts and an alignment rack), and offer full-service for diesels, transmissions, and tires.

We are proud of how far we come, and looking forward to how far we have yet to go. We are blessed to have loyal customers, hard-working employees, and a supportive community. We stand for quality in service, excellence in customer service, and fairness to the customer - in both expectations and pricing. Car questions and troubles are only a phone call away from being solved - just ask for Joey, Allen, Bill, or Alyx!

Will you do work with parts provided by the customer?

Absolutely! However, we cannot guarantee the quality of parts independently sourced or are used, and therefore, cannot warranty the work completed. Please contact us for more details as each case will be unique, and it may be more economical in the long-term to buy a new part.

Are there any storage fees?

Upon completion of any services, the customer must retrieve the vehicle within 2 days. Beyond this time-frame, there is a $35 per day storage fee added to the invoice. Please note that A&J Automotive Repair Shop LLC is not responsible for any property lost or damaged on the premises.

When are invoices due?

Invoice payment due within 5 business days of receipt & must be paid in full to retrieve vehicle unless other arrangements made. Invoices for vehicles not retrieved within 2 days of work being completed will include a $35 per day storage fee.

What do you charge for towing?

For local customers there is a $50 "hook-up" fee which covers the time and fuel of the driver to reach a vehicle and securely hook it up to our tow truck, and then $3.00 per mile to the final destination. The first 5 miles are included.

Do you require a deposit?

Any repair over $200 requires 50% down to secure parts. We also offer options for financing for invoices over $200 through Square Installments.
