Maintaining your business 



Our success and longevity is a direct result of our fundamental commitment to providing our customers with simply the finest in automotive repairs and they have shown their appreciation by returning time after time.  




For most people, dealing with an ordinary repair shop is like going to the dentist, both painful and expensive but rest assured that Upstate Imports is no ordinary repair shop. We are devoted to providing you with the best possible experience and we know we succeed in doing so because so many of our “first time” customers have become “long-term” customers.

Becoming a member of the extended “Upstate family” is just a phone call or mouse click away. You see, we do not just “treat” our customers like family, they are family.

By specializing in the repair of European automobiles only, we fully appreciate the old-world craftsman-ship, style, beauty, and performance that distinguish them from “cookie-cutter” cars. Contact us today so we may prove to you that we say what we mean and we mean what we say.
