40 reasons to come to Virginia Tire & Auto

  1. We’re the ones getting our hands dirty. Not you.

  2. We can spot potential service issues that you might miss.

  3. Free coffee and free Wi-Fi.

  4. Friendly people who care.

  5. A 40-year tradition of family-owned service dedicated to doing things the right way.

  6. No trips back and forth to different auto parts stores searching for the right parts.

  7. We’re in your neighborhood.

  8. Loaner cars if you need them.

  9. Shuttle service.

  10. Experts, experts, and more experts. We never stop training, to make sure we offer the best service possible.

  11. High-tech. You probably won’t see the diagnostic equipment we have in your garage at home.

  12. Towing and emergency roadside service. 

  13. We’re open extended hours. So your life doesn’t have to be turned upside down just because your car is being serviced.

  14. Car-side check-in. Quick, easy. We’ll take it from here.

  15. We’re not stumped. Bring in any car. Any make. Any model. Not only can we work on it, but we’ll do it expertly.

  16. Better than the dealership. Yes, we’re better trained. And we’re better to work with.

  17. Thousands of tires in stock. Yes, thousands.

  18. Family values. We’re family run, and we treat your car like one of our own.

  19. Change your oil at home and you have to recycle it. Not here.

  20. We put those paper seat covers down before we get in your car. Not because we’re always dirty. It’s because we’re always polite. And just occasionally dirty.

  21. We have a 110% tire price guarantee. And no, our math isn’t wrong. If you find a lower price within 30 days of purchase, we’ll match it. And refund you 10%. That’s where the extra 10% comes from.

  22. We offer FREE stuff when you buy tires from us. Like FREE lifetime tire rotations. FREE lifetime balancing. And a FREE alignment check. 

  23. Our techs have 310 ASE certifications between them. So when your neighbor tells you he can fix your car because he “read something about it on the Internet,” you should probably think twice.

  24. Our Service Managers were once technicians. And they each have at least 15 years on the job. So you know that from start to finish you’re getting the most knowledgeable people around.

  25. Same-day service without an appointment. Yes, you read that right.

  26. All our General Service Technicians have completed the Tire Industry Association 200 Level. It’s like tire college. And they all graduated with honors. TIA 200 covers the proper techniques and best practices for handling tires and wheels.  Virginia Tire & Auto offers classroom and hands-on training involving inflation pressure, wheel removal, tire repairs, and mounting and balancing tires.

  27. All of our sales associates have completed Goodyear Performance Tire Specialist classes. Because some tires provide better handling depending on your car. Someone needs to know the difference, and that someone is us.  This means that the sales associates have taken LOTS of online modules (35 to be exact) teaching them about all the different Goodyear, Dunlop and Kelly product offerings.  They also learn about the Goodyear Tire Manufacturing Process.

  28. Last year, in order to stay on top of the latest trends in auto repair, our employees participated in 3,800 hours of classroom training. And no one was sent to the principal’s office.

  29. We invest in us to give you the best. Employees, facilities, and technologies are constantly improved to give you the best service possible.

  30. We take our job seriously. If a person doesn’t understand the importance of car care and what it means to a community then they won’t be working here. 

  31. Tradition. Our founder Myron Boncarosky set the standard for the industry, and we work hard every day to live up to it.

  32. Community involvement. We work here and live here too. 

  33. We’re smoke-free. Why? Well, we have good people working here, and we want them to be able to provide you with great service for a long, long, long time.

  34. Deals. Be sure to click on “Coupons” at VaTire.com. We’re always giving you extra ways to save.
